t-sa forum x AA 2017

t-sa forum x AA

Tuesday 29 August – Friday 22 September 2017

Following the past two years of studying the concept of ‘renewal’ in architecture in London as examples of how history is interpreted, t-sa forum will continue its research in intervening the existing built fabric.
Measured and observation survey of what is already there will again be the focus of investigation.
Directly working together with London practice Takero Shimazaki Architects/t-sa, the workshop will study contemporary and historical precedents on renewal in London and will visit key architects and artists who
work around this theme. During the research, the workshop will use alternative methods to drawing, collaging and presenting, utilising hand printing methods, photography and overlaid imaginary drawings. Through the crafted media, the research will aim to establish a direct and immediate subjective appreciation in architecture whilst objectively analysing and re-imagining buildings.

There will be invited critics alongside the members of t-sa studio, the Architectural Association and other prolific practitioners.
