On the Distribution of Experiences

Ioanna SOTIRIOU

Ioanna Sotiriou is an architect working at the intersection of speculative engineering, information theory and architectural design. Her research-based work, ranging from speculative architectural scenarios and critical writings to short films and interactive narratives, has been published and awarded internationally. She holds a Master of Architecture from UC Berkeley and a Diploma of Architectural Engineering from University of Thessaly.

Domestic Space: Drawing Bodies in Motion

Belinda MITCHELL

Belinda Mitchell is a senior lecturer in interior design at the University of Portsmouth, School of Architecture where she is a director for a set of interdisciplinary masters’ programmes and is course leader for the MA in Interior Architecture.  She also has a visual arts practice which takes place through collaborative processes and explores the representation of emotion and affect in architectural practice. Recent works include articles, Matter of the Manor (2018) Journal of Interior Design, Wiley and Thresholds of the Future, (2019) Interior Futures, Crucible USA.

Critical Proximities

Chris SMITH

Dr Chris L. Smith is the Professor of Architectural Theory in the Sydney School of Architecture, Design and Planning at the University of Sydney. Chris’ research, over the last 18 years, has focused on the nexus of architecture and the body. He locates this nexus between architectural theory, philosophy, and the biosciences. He has published on architectural theory and its dynamic relation with body theory, poststructural philosophy (particularly the work of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari) and technologies of the body. Chris has also published on the complex intersections of architecture, the biosciences, and medical humanities. Chris is the co-editor of Architecture in the Space of Flows (Routledge, 2012), Laboratory Lifestyles: The Construction of Scientific Fictions (MIT Press, 2018); and is the author of Bare Architecture: a schizoanalysis (Bloomsbury, 2017) and co-author of LabOratory: Speaking of the Science and itsArchitecture (MIT Press, 2019).

The Nomad Science of Remote Intensities

Thomas MICAL

Prof. Thomas Mical has taught internationally in architectural theory and media philosophy. His research in architectural theory engages with the intrinsic and extrinsic drivers of emergent spaces (machinic and cognitive) informed by process philosophy. Recent research topics include medievalism/surrealism; recursive synchronicity events; multiple intelligences in multiple ecologies; soft desiring-machines; and mutations in the machinic phylum. The research methodologies over time seek to develop innovative theory-fiction for architecture, in the pervasive spatial mechanics of the imaginary past within the present.

Film Place Collective

FILM PLACE COLLECTIVE EDITIONS is Sander Hölsgens, Rebecca Loewen, Hannah Paveck, Thi Phuong-Trâm Nguyen, and Anna Viola Sborgi. We are filmmakers, architects, thinkers discussing and exploring the material of film – as it mediates place through image, sound, and movement. In the 2010s, we gathered on a biweekly basis at The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL, organising reading groups, events and exhibitions to discuss the intersection of architecture and film. Scattered across the globe, the collective now embraces remote practices as modes of engaging with our surroundings.

Illuminated Manuscripts and Tactile Objects: a Pedagogy for Remote Engagement in a (Tele)Design Clinic

Aleksandr MERGOLD

Aleksandr Mergold, B’Arch Cornell, M’Arch Princeton, is an assistant professor of architecture at Cornell University and a founding partner at Austin+Mergold LLC (A+M), an architecture, landscape, and design practice. Aleksandr’s agenda in practice and inquiry focuses on a “design-and-adapt” modus operandi (the contemporary interpretation of spolia), repurposing all that is mundane, common, available and disposable in today’s construction, infrastructure, technology, and resources.

Unfolding the Dimensions of World: Metaphorical Space and Quarantine Teaching with the Student Diaspora

Eve WINTON

Tracey Eve Winton, Associate Professor at University of Waterloo, is an architect, artist, scholar, and urbanist, specialized in iconography, architectural narrative, and spatial symbolism. She received two international teaching awards, the ACSA Creative Achievement Award and the NCBDS Faculty Award. Ongoing research investigates the language of modern architecture in the work of Carlo Scarpa, and includes a book decoding discourses in Scarpa’s Castelvecchio Museum in Verona. Recent publications include an essay on space and time in the paintings of Giorgio de Chirico.

“TBA”

Matthew MINDRUP

Matthew Mindrup is Senior Lecturer of Architectural History and Theory at the University of Sydney and currently its Director of Undergraduate Programs in Architecture Design and Planning. Originally trained as an architect, he is also a historian, with books on the material imagination in architectural practice and the first comprehensive history of the different uses for architectural models since antiquity until the present. His forthcoming books treat the art of forgetting in architecture and reflect on the architectural imagination in the evolution of the practice.
