Session 2: Environment

Series: ‘PLUS’ Organised by Javier Castañón and Manja van de Worp
Date: 13/2/2013
Time: 18:00
Venue: Lecture Hall
Running time: 114 mins

PLUS is a series of three debates showcasing the dynamics of the design process.  Primarily aimed at 2nd and 4th Year students to complement their TS courses the debates are also open to all interested attendees. 

PLUS was born to address the richness that remains hidden behind every design. It is here to reveal the unsuspected depth in the design process and discovers new horizons by placing people with different backgrounds in design next to one another. PLUS brings together experts from different fields to express their viewpoint on a design topic in order to search for links and conflicts that are centred around a current design driver in architecture. Respondents and those attending the event will start the discussion following the experts’ contributions, and feed their own vision and expertise into the design process dynamic. 

The second PLUS event addresses the meaning of environment in design and its role as a driver within the process. There is no design without environment. In this event we explore the active link between designed objects and environment in various scales and definitions. As these environments occur simultaneously in the design, we question how these environments interact.
