Gordon Matta-Clark (1943-1978) is one of the most influential artists of the 1970s, whose work has continued to be a noted influence of both architects and visual artists since. SPLITTING, CUTTING, WRITING, DRAWING, EATING…GORDON MATTA-CLARK  surveys the constructive and destructive verbs that defined his relation to art and architecture, featuring correspondence, drawings, photographs, notebooks, and films related to the artist's key projects, drawn from the archive of the Canadian Centre for Architecture, Montréal.  Along with his major building cuts from 1973 to 1978, in which laboriously cut holes into floors of abandoned or disused buildings, including A W-Hole House, Conical Intersect, Day’s End, and Splitting (1974), the exhibition also explores his interest in metabolic and cooking processes, including his restaurant Food (1971); his play with language and the syntax of voids, gaps, and abandoned spaces;  and the use of drawing as a mode of thinking through space.The exhibition will focus on these social and creative aspects of Matta-Clark´s conception of architecture, or as he put it, "making space without building it."

Ultzama Summer School

13:01 - 27 April, 2017
Ultzama Summer School

The Summer School will be held in two parts. Students will work with three professors in developing a single project based on the program set. The idea is to give the students the opportunity to work in a set-up resembling that of a real-life practice tasked with a commission, under the supervision of the professors. Emphasis will be on “with,” rather than on “for,” simulating the intensity and efficiency of team work in an architectural office as well as the journey through the various phases of a project, from design to execution.

Patkau Architects: Material Operations

Patkau Architects: Material Operations

Experimenting directly with materials--bending and breaking them, feeling their texture, mass, and strength--provides a depth of understanding beyond simple visual observations. Patkau Architects’ innovative approach to design and purposeful use of materials provide a refreshed and expanded perspective on the possible.

Robotic Fabrications Workshop - Bandsaw Manoeuvres, AA Visiting School, Bandsaw Manoeuvres
Bandsaw Manoeuvres

Merging expert knowledge of timber construction with cutting-edge robotic fabrication technologies we will explore the creative potential of prototyping complex and large-scale timber structures with digital tools resulting in the construction of a roof structure for the temporary foundry building for the Hooke Park Campus.

Our weapons of choice- the chainsaw and bandsaw- will gain an augmented level of precision and control when wielded by the large Kuka KR150 robot. Through rigorous physical testing, we will prototype connection details utilizing the extraordinary precision and flexibility of multi-axis robotic machining.

Velotopia: Dutch Cycling

11:00 - 23 April, 2017
Velotopia: Dutch Cycling

The Dutch use cycling in combination with trains to connect regions. Other nations are using cycling to make historical city centres liveable again. But what if cycling became the key organizing principle for urban growth and the design of new buildings?

Progress and Prosperity

10:00 - 23 April, 2017
Progress and Prosperity

This publication focuses on the shift from building for construction’s sake to that of building for progress. After decades of extraordinary development and urbanization, Chinese cities have arrived at a stage of ‘New Normal’. Urban development is now shifting from quantity-driven to quality-driven, with art and culture as a tasty topping for countless developments.

Making Urban Nature

09:00 - 23 April, 2017
Making Urban Nature

The city is a rich habitat of great biodiversity. Many animal and plant species are now more common in cities than in rural areas. However, urban nature is fragile, and threatened by the tendency of planners and policymakers to see the city exclusively as a habitat for people. Nature-inclusive design, which considers nature an integral part of the urban organism and an important part of a city’s quality of life (for human and nonhuman residents), is a pioneer practice that has only recently started to become part of urban planning.

Oase 98: Narrating Urban Landscapes

08:00 - 23 April, 2017
Oase 98: Narrating Urban Landscapes

OASE 98 explores the historical foundation of the concept of narration in reading and designing the urban landscape, in search of the relevance of narrative methods to today’s practice. This issue presents a new angle on the work of (landscape) architects and urban planners of the 1960s and 1970s (Edmund Bacon, Kevin Lynch and Jacques Simon) and of today (Günter Vogt, Anke Schmidt and Bas Smets), and sheds light on recent experiments in academia. OASE 98 presents narration as a means with which to reposition design and the designer as a mediator between the expert and the inhabitant, addressing issues such as bodily experience, socio-spatial fragmentation and participation.

Reuse, Redevelop and Design

06:00 - 23 April, 2017
Reuse, Redevelop and Design

Where there are vacancies, there is room for new uses, such as housing and leisure and health-care facilities. This often results in surprising combinations, such as a school or a community centre in a factory complex, a shop in a church or a recreation area in a military zone. Reuse, Redevelop and Design presents 20 inspiring redevelopment projects. The book addresses the story behind the success of redevelopment in essays on heritage policy, public-private partnerships, financing and design.

Parliament of the European Union - Nico Bick

In Parliaments of the European Union Dutch photographer Nico Bick presents a unique photographic view of the plenary chambers where the European democracy is actually realized. The book features photographs of the plenary chamber in the parliaments of the twenty-eight European Union member states and the two European Parliaments in Brussels and Strasbourg. Each plenary chamber is photographed from one viewpoint, from the floor itself, in three or four photographs and presented in a triptych or tetraptych fold out. As a series this project makes the European democratic landscape and its significance visible.

Rebuild by Design: New Approaches to Climate Change

04:00 - 23 April, 2017
Rebuild by Design: New Approaches to Climate Change

Rebuild by Design was developed for the Presidential Hurricane Sandy Rebuilding Task Force, a response to the destruction that followed Hurricane Sandy hitting the Northeast coast of the United States in October and November of 2012. Using an innovative, design-driven process based on the design competition model, Rebuild by Design places local communities and civic leaders at the heart of a robust, interdisciplinary creative process to generate implementable solutions for building more resilient regions. Its signal initiative was the Hurricane Sandy Design Competition, which produced ten visionary design proposals addressing the intersection of physical, social and ecological resiliency.
