|Making Culture I|
|Making Culture positions architecture as an element of culture,
and the process of making architecture an act of cultural production.
This approach asserts that the interpretation of and contribution to
culture(s) as the primary productive task of architecture, before
response to brief, programme, site or other obligations. A series of
conversations will explore how the appeal of culture can be used as a
tool to enable architecture’s transformative function, to enhance the
particularity of place and to stimulate a renewal of institutions.|
|Modelling the architectural practice of the future|
|Increased globalisation and exponentially augmented technology will create almost infinite competition, causing product and service consumption patterns to change immensely - just some of the game changers architects will need to deal with. This seminar will help you start answering those key questions for your practice, help you identify whether you need to reinvent your business and / or your business model and if so, give you the tools to do so through practically reinforced, hands-on, fun exercises. |
|Social Sustainability: Design that connects people|
|Social Sustainability is about ensuring the sustenance of the diverse social relations that exist in healthy communities. This presentation will discuss the growing public policy emphasis on wellbeing and performance of public spaces, how we can respond, what this means for innovation in design practice, who is involved in delivering Social Sustainability, why it is important, and what happens if we don’t.|
