Explore the ways in which time can influence our relationship with architecture.
Architecture is sensitive to time. From the intimately felt rhythms of the body, changeable urban currents, or slow everyday practices that influence how we experience architecture spatially, to the ways in which the physicality of a building, city or landscape is altered over time. This event will rethink and think through the notion of time by drawing upon themes of slowness, the echo, implied and belated memories, and ‘nowness’ in relation to site-specificity. To gauge temporality in architecture by looking into that which is acute but with a slight delay, immediate but with a felt aftermath.
Time | Making | Space brings together practitioners from architectural design, music and filmmaking, whose work explores how time and the temporal in architecture is not simply a matter of measure. Join us for live sonic performances, film screenings and discussions that critically examine how interactions between space, time, sound and moving image can provoke new approaches to architecture and design thinking.
Steve Chance – architect, founder of Chance De Silva, a practice set up to explore the possibilities of architecture in interaction with other participants. Their recent collaboration with Scanner, Vex House, has been shortlisted for the AJ House of the Year Award.
Carol Mavor – writer, academic, and filmmaker who has published widely on photography, cinema, colour and childhood. She is the author of the film Fairy Tale Still Almost Blue which will also be screened during the event.
Robin Rimbaud (Scanner) – artist working on the experimental terrain between sound and space. Active in sonic art, producing concerts, installations and recordings, Scanner has scored a number of critically acclaimed pieces such as the Narnia ballet (2015), Philips Wake-Up Light (2009), and the re-opening of the Stedelijk Museum among others.
Selected research projects from the Bartlett School of Architecture’s doctoral programme will also be exhibited and performed in the Geological Society library from 6pm.
Organised in collaboration with the doctoral programme at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL.
