Organised by AA XX 100

On Presentation

Series: AA XX 100 Events
Date: Monday 8 May 2017
Time: 18:30
Venue: Lecture Hall
Running time: 105 mins

In a school where your project is experienced, determined and assessed through presentation, we often fail to talk about this as the ultimate tool of the architect. Architects are communicators - translating ideas through various media and coordinating between different teams of specialists in order to transform a project into a reality. In this evening discussion, tutors from across the school will come together to discuss the role of presentation within the AA as well as in the profession as a whole, and how the multiple ways to perform a project could be celebrated rather than standardised. 

Presenting tutors include: Monia De Marchi, Ryan Dillon, Maria Fedorchenko, Mark Cousins, Sylvie Taher & Mark Morris.  
All tutors will start the evening by presenting the portfolio Planetary Architecture Two by Zaha Hadid to showcase the different ways to present a single architectural project. 

AA XX 100 aims to not only celebrate the contribution AA women have made in the last 100 years, but also to serve as a catalyst for a wider discussion on the issues facing architects today. AA XX 100 is a multimedia project of exhibitions, lectures, seminars, a website, international conference and publications, including a collection of historical and critical writing about AA women.

All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
