A symposium coordinated by Ricardo de Ostos (AA Inter 3/NaJa-DeOstos) and Tobias Klein (AA First Year/Horhizon)

1pm -6pm – LECTURE HALL

Rendering Speculations is a day-long AA event in which seven invited guests, from a variety of different fields including architecture, conceptual art, video gaming and interface design, will discuss the topic of speculative visualisation and virtual design. Highlighting a variety of disciplines and approaches, the event seeks to locate architecture as a magnifying lens through which digital visions and speculations are imagined.

Navigating through CG film sets, a digital life painting performance, augmented reality strategies, narrative scenarios, experimental drawings and political projects, the concept of speculation will be discussed as an inventive design methodology. In an age where borders between physical and virtual environments are constantly shifting, the symposium looks to stimulate a debate on how architecture can explore emerging mediums and assist in the creation of new visions that we imagine, aspire and experience in the years to come.

Speakers include:

Marjan Colletti

an architect and teacher at the Bartlett UCL, who explores digital architecture and representation


Nigel Coates

architect, founder of NATO and head of department at the Royal College of Art, whose work pursues a narrative-driven architecture


Ziah Fogel

American computer animation technical director who worked for Pixar Animation Studios and is currently working at Double Negative Visual Effects.

 Zaha Hadid

Founder or seminal architectural office Zaha Hadid Architects


 Andrew Jones

World famous digital painter and ‘techno-mystic visual pioneer of digital art’


 Lebbeus Woods

The event will be streamed live on the AA website at aaschool.ac.uk.
