Sam Jacob and Ines Weizman
Currently exhibiting at the 13th Venice Architecture Biennale, The Museum of Copying is the first public presentation by the Architectural Doppelgängers Research Cluster. The museum explores the idea of the copy in architecture as an important, active and often surreal phenomenon. At this event, Sam Jacob and Ines Weizman will discuss the projects commissioned for the museum, which include: FAT’s Villa Rotunda Redux, a 5m high re-make of Palladio’s Villa Rotunda that explores the villa as both a subject and object of architectural copying; Ines Weizman’s Repeat Yourself: Loos, Law and the Culture of the Copy, which presents research into the significance of copyright on architecture using legal disputes around the ownership of Loos’ archive and work as a test case; The Book Of Copies, produced by San Rocco; and a series of stories that surround the creation of architectural doppelgängers.

This introductory lecture outlines the work of the Paradise Lost research cluster, which is exploring a notion of architectural obsolescence in contemporary America. While the United States was the world’s most influential economic, scientific, and cultural force during the twentieth century, its influence is waning, and the country seems obsessed with its own decline. Following our fieldwork to such destinations as the Salton Sea, an abandoned pleasure garden in California, and the derelict Mississippi Delta, we are now sifting through the architectural residues of this decline in the hope of determining the words and images that truly speak of these paradises lost.
The Open Jury: Portfolios 2011/12 is a one-day event, which gives everyone the opportunity to see some of the best portfolios and presentations from the past academic year. Discussions will centre around representation: how we produce, discuss and present design work at the AA. This event will also provide an opportunity to speculate on the type of work the school will produce in the coming year. The internal, self-reflective discussions will be led by undergraduate tutors from across the school. Selected students represent work from Foundation through Diploma. The format mimic that of a final table review, with a rotating group of approximately four tutors at any one time. Presentations will be limited to 15 minutes, with subsequent discussions. The presentations will be followed by drinks and an informal discussion.
