Hi All,

Interesting event tonight at the AA on TS with a sharp techno spin. Essential for 3rd years.

Details below:


Session 1: Action and Reaction

Date: 30/1/2013
Time: 18:00:00
PLUS is a series of three debates showcasing the dynamics of the design process. Primarily aimed at 2nd and 4th Year students to complement their TS courses, the debates are also open to all interested attendees.
PLUS was born to address the richness that remains hidden behind every design in order to reveal the unknown depth in the design process. The series also discovers new design horizons by bringing together experts from different fields to express viewpoints on design topics in order to search for links and conflicts centred around current design drivers in architecture. Respondents and those attending the event will lead the discussion, following the experts’ contributions, and feed their own vision and expertise into the design-process dynamic.
The first session of PLUS will address what drives action and reaction in various design processes. For example, what motivates the action to win, to be more economical or to survive? How can these influencers adapt and shift the design process of architecture?
The conversation will investigate the process of Formula 1 cars versus the slow action and reaction process of biology in favour of a continuous equilibrium between the subject and its environment. How do closed or open design processes affect the realisation of a product? Here we ask whether current design strategies in architecture can be seen or learned from one of the above. How has the reaction of architecture changed based on actions, needed or provided?
Session 1 Participants:
Ralph Koyess, Lotus Renault F1 Car designer
Julian Vincent, Biologist
Adrian Priestman, Vector-FoilTec
Anna Winstanley, Laing O’Rourke
