An Ordinary Evening
Date: Monday 27 October 2014
Venue: Lecture Hall
For an evening with unorthodox architecture and design studio Ordinary, AA alumni Alex Kaiser and Magnus Larsson – who currently work out of the AA Gallery as part of their month-long show, Ordinary Takeover – take you through their conceptual-practical world of wondrous materiality. Positioned at the intersection of material science and architecture, the studio’s founders present their radical vision of how existing and not-yet-existing building materials might change the future of our built environment, using some of the architecture projects currently on display in their show, such as magnetic skins, bacterial sandstone cities and spaces made from milk.
Biography: Built on the notion that architecture is currently going through its most radical paradigm shift ever, with the construction of structures atom by atom already more than a theoretical possibility, Ordinary Ltd forges consilient relationships with scientists to push the discipline into the next material era. Based in east London, the practice was set up in 2011. www.ordinary.london
