The symposium explores transient environments within both urban and interior situations, with a focus on how such design interventions engender social agency. While much pop-up and mobile architecture has become fetishised as form-making, the event will question how the organisational infrastructure of such temporary interventions might facilitate a more lasting legacy in terms of the kind of participatory social structures they instigate.
This event coincides with a structure installed by Interior Spatial Design students in the Rootstein Hopkins Parade Ground at Chelsea College of Arts. The symposium is convened by the Spaces & Narrations Research Group working with practitioners-in-residence Wayward, and presented by Camberwell, Chelsea, Wimbledon Graduate School Public Programme.
Full programme to be announced.
Booking available from February 2017.
