Hear architect Stephanie Chaltiel as she discusses her experimental approach to fabrication, combining traditional materials and processes with new and adapted technologies including drones. Her discussion will consider the manufacture of "mud shell" structures and how future realities could be constructed through the uses of this kind of fabrication.
This informal lecture series invites speakers to explore the current trends in the making, process and design of our built environment, looking at how new technologies are shaping the future of the spaces around us. Lectures include themes of fabrication, bio-technologies, forensic architecture and a critical look at the algorithms and political uses of architecture and data.
We will hear from artists, architects, designers, scientists and other interdisciplinary practitioners who are at the fore-front of their industry and understand how different disciplines influence and challenge the thinking of other practices.
This series is discursive and offers opportunities for students, academics, industry professionals and the wider public to learn from and question the people who are constructing the realities we inhabit.
This events series is free and open to all. No booking is required. Keep the conversations going and enjoy complimentary light refreshments before and after the lecture.
