Processing Environments Symposium
AA Bilbao-San Sebastian Visiting School
Venue: Guggenheim Museum Bilbao
The growing consciousness that a building is a device that performs primarily as an environmental regulator is shifting the focus of the discipline from tectonics to social and ecological processes: buildings establish the regime of energy exchange of the built environment by virtue of their geometry, their materiality etc… and therefore there is an opportunity to establish relationships between these performances and emerging architectural sensibilities and expressions.
Within these lines, the symposium will embrace and extended notion of environment by looking at the work of international architects, artists as well as research directors of recognised international institutions. Moreover, the symposium will tease out speculative directions for architecture that move beyond reductive approaches to ecology, as in 'green' notions. The discussion will aim to bring together the work of practitioners and researchers to unveil novel and alternative methods of engaging, interacting and perceiving the environment from social, ecological and material perspectives.
The event has been organised in collaboration with the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao and sponsored by the Bilbao Municipality and the Institut Français in Bilbao. It will serve as an introduction to the AA Visiting School Bilbao-San Sebastian Workshop 'Computing Topos' co-organised with the Alhondiga Bilbao where it will take place and sponsored by the Bilbao Municipality.
