Industrialised Craft

Dates to be confirmed

AAVS Industrialised Craft is a hands-on design/make workshop with a strong emphasis on research.

Each year we investigate a different material and its method of production gaining a thorough understanding of the relationships between the object, the factory, the city and the architect. Our deep engagement with production will give us insights into the complex relationship between man and machine, demand and supply, industry and craft and ultimately architecture and culture.

In our second year our focus will shift from brick to marble. We will study its historical significance, unravel its present uses and imagine its future implementations. Our field visits will take us to quarries, impressive stock yards, factories and workshops studying the process from raw material to its final use. We will compare the mass produced object and its crafted equivalent, recording the events and scenarios that take place from the conception of an idea to the making of the physical object and model new ideas and visionary relationships between the architect, craft, industry and the city. Our research will investigate the material from its primitive state to the highly-processed, from the building material to the crafted and sculptural uses. The workshop will culminate with the assembly of a 1:1 site-specific installation.
