AA Inter3 15-16 Booklet_Cover

Here is a brochure about the year of 15/16 at Intermediate 3, containing a sample of the students work.

This online brochure is a summary of the work developed within our undergraduate design studio ‘Inter 3’ at the Architectural Association, School of Architecture in London (AA) during the academic year of 2015-16. The work was compiled with the objective to share it with individuals and organisations that have contributed in one way or the other to the process and research during this year-long study.

Part of the work presented in this brochure will be included in our upcoming book ‘Scavengers and Other Creatures in Promised Lands’ (AA Publications & Bedford Press), out in December 2016. The publication will cover almost ten years of research on architectural narratives and the built environment we have undertaken in our studio Inter 3 at the AA School.

You can download the brochure here: AA Inter3 15-16 Booklet (Small)

Special thanks to Chan Leong Nin for helping us put it together!

Hello Ricardo and Nannette,

This is the current state of the last perspective. I am aware that it probably won’t be able to look as finished as the other one, but I wanted to try to make the idea come across as clear as possible. In this drawing the focus is mainly the usage of the courtyards, and from the view of the people living in the building on how they would use these courtyards. The small pockets of activities included so far are car repair service (derived from the rickshaw fixing base of the infrastructural module), flee market in the alley, cafe, and kids playground. Could you please give me some suggestion to make the purpose of the drawing as clear as possible within the timeframe, such as which parts to focus on.
 Thank you so much.

a key sheet at the beginning by ignatioputra

Hello Ricardo and Nanette,

as discussed previously I tried to synthesise the key theme of my project using this sheet, below are  part of my presentation. this sheet will be at the beginning before I explain my project, and after the end of my presentation I would like to reiterate it again

(Aboriginal and Australian map) These are two maps of the same land Australia, one by aboriginal people called ngurara canvas the other is colonial map by European economics. Of what we see, land has multiple meaning for different cultures, one here is in the eye of the indigenous people the other in the eye of European economic. One talk about ancestor life, memories, paths and events the other talk about territory, trade, and barrier. Sometime we see these as two separate entity. However, we realised that both are part of the land. My key theme talks about when one meets the other this one plus this one equals 3. Meaning there is a third nature or third entity that appears as a result of the interaction between the two and not just black and white one or the other. From what I learned I believe that architecture has a role as mediator that allows interpretation of this third nature that may be able to bring forward a new narrative, imagination or decision in the land.

Sorry for this last minute post
