Three-day workshops open to all students

The FIRST YEAR STUDIO in collaboration with the INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL is putting forward two workshops open to all students on: Imaginary inhabitants, creatures, genders, and their habitat.
 
Dates: Wednesday 6th, Thursday 7th, Friday 8th of May from 10:00am. 
 
 
CITY OF BACHELORS by Ana Araujo (Intermediate 2)
For over five hundred years men have been designing our homes and cities; and defining the language of architecture. Inspired by an exception to this rule – a 40-square-metre flat Irish de- signer Eileen Grey conceived for her lover Jean Badovici in 1930 – we will create an imaginary city based on what is believed to be a potentially feminine architectural language. 
 
Materials: One block of genuine silver leaf, ten sheets of black foamboard, A3 size, one can of spray mount, twenty sheets of white paper, five sheets of black card, A3 size, + model making materials (cutting matt, scalpel, ruler etc).

 

 

THE MENAGERIE OF MISCEGENATIONS by Manijeh Verghese (Intermediate 11)

Can we invent new forms of life, predict a future evolution of hybrid animals, plants and everything in between, by altering the course of evolution through the design of new species and their habitats? This three day workshop will start with the invention of hybrid creatures that fuse existing species. We will then design the spaces where these beasts will live and be observed. Finally, we will combine our invented life forms into a collective taxonomy drawing to track our alternate evolution and construct our new menagerie of miscegenations by aggregating our isometric spaces into a fantastical group collage.

Materials: A0 sheets of paper for the combined drawings, coloured copies of your miscegenation and menagerie drawings to collage onto the larger sheets, glue, scissors, pens, pencils, ink, watercolours, rulers, protractors. 

 

If you are interested to take part in one of these workshops come to the FIRST YEAR STUDIO. You will find a sign up sheet near the offices. Deadline to sign up: Monday 4th of May or send an email to: monia.de_marchi@aaschool.ac.uk.

You can find all the info on the two workshops on the AA First Year - Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/aafirstyear

The AArchitecture Editorial Team are gathering content for Issue 25: "Deadlines".

Deadlines: a word dreaded by architecture students worldwide, we encounter it on a daily basis. It’s not about time, but about the lack thereof. Another variation of the word, this one hyphenated as 'dead-line', was used by printers, though not to refer to press time, but to describe how the press should be configured.

We are interested in your interpretation. Essays, poems, drawings, sketches, diagrams or any other formats are welcome from AA Members, Alumni, Students and Staff. Please submit a 100-word proposal to aarchitecture@aaschool.ac.uk by Friday 6 February 2015.

The Editorial Team is also collecting any last-minute news briefs for inclusion in Issue 24: Escapes. If you would like to publish news regarding prizes, events or publications, please send a short description with all of the necessary information to aarchitecture@aaschool.ac.uk by Friday 6 February 2015.
