20 Scholarships the AA BILBAO Visiting School: COMPUTING TOPOS III 2014 / Bilbao, Spain

© AA Visiting School

AA Visiting School is an international network of design workshops and other programs organized by the Architectural Association School of Architecture. This event will be realized in , between July 23 and August 5.

AA Visiting School will give away 20 scholarships for those interested in attending. If so, you need to send your CV/portfolio and a description explaining why would you like to attend the event.

The workshop will explore the question of ‘place’ or ‘topos’ and its radical transformation in the recent years due to the proliferation and availability of environmental parameters. The rise of digital methods in architectural design as well as simulation platforms for environmental analysis, have produced a renewed interest in the relationship between architecture and phenomena and in particular into the possibility of the integration of environmental aspects into the design process. Nevertheless, approximation means to environmental phenomena in relation to urban morphology need to be further explored to mediate between sophisticated simulation platforms and design agendas, beyond reductionist definitions of the environment.

Video: “about architecture_without capital letters” / Alejandro Beautell

As part of “Time Space Existence” at the Venice Biennale — the exhibition which has brought over 100 architects, including Norman Foster, Eduardo Souto de Moura, and Ricardo Bofill, together — the young Spanish architect, Alejandro Beautell, presents the installation: “about architecture_without capital letters.”

Beautell’s video, which explores his recent works completed in the Canary Islands (including ArchDaily 2014 Building of the Year, St. John Baptist Chapel), provokes the viewer to consider the essence of architecture, smaller scales, and the tradition inherent in the architectural profession.

Enjoy the video above and make sure to revisit Beautell’s stunning Building of the Year, the St. John Baptist Chapel.
