John Palmesino & Ann-Sofi Rönnskog (Territorial Agency) in conversation with Lucia Pietroiusti (Serpentine Galleries)

Session 1: How to think with others?

Series: Open Seminar - Plan the Planet
Date: Monday 7 October 2019
Time: 18:30
Venue: AA Lecture Hall
Running time: 92 mins
Cohabitation, with all its conveniences and accompanied by all its struggles, has for centuries been the main purpose of the construction of cities. The very act of construction yet implies separation, the set up of differences and demarcations, it implies making differences visible, not allowing others in. In this seminar we explore how to re-imagine a polyphony of approaches to the climatic crisis. How to move beyond imperatives to change individual life? How to re-imagine polities and institutions in more collaborative, multi-species and inter-organisational terms?

Lucia Pietroiusti is Curator of General Ecology at the Serpentine Galleries, London, as well as the curator of Sun & Sea (Marina), the Lithuanian Pavilion at the 58th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, awarded by the Golden Lion. At Serpentine, Pietroiusti founded and curates the long-term ‘General Ecology’ project for Serpentine (2018-ongoing) dedicated to the implementation of ecological principles throughout all of the Galleries’ exhibitions and programmes. Recent projects include The Shape of a Circle in the Mind of a Fish series (with Filipa Ramos) and Microhabitable (with Fernando García-Dory). Forthcoming publications include More-than-Human, co-edited with Andrés Jaque and Marina Otero Verzier.

John Palmesino and Ann-Sofi Rönnskog are architects and urbanists. They established Territorial Agency, an independent organisation that combines architecture, analysis, advocacy and action for integrated spatial transformation of contemporary territories. Recent projects include Oceans in transformation, Museum of Oil, Anthropocene Observatory and North. They are Diploma 4 Unit Masters at the AA. www.territorialagency.com

THE AA RECEIVES THE POWER TO AWARD ITS OWN DEGREES

The Architectural Association receives Taught Degree Awarding Powers by the Lords of Her Majesty’s Most Honourable Privy Council.

The Architectural Association (AA), the oldest independent school of architecture in the United Kingdom, is pleased to announce that it has been granted the power to award its own degrees. As of 1 October 2019, the AA has the right to establish new academic programmes and degree awards and is working to create some of the world’s most pioneering courses in architecture to shape and build the future.

Taught Degree Awarding Powers (TDAP) give UK higher education institutions the right to award bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Prospective students worldwide can apply to the AA Foundation Course (Foundation Certificate), Experimental Programme BA(Hons), Diploma Programme (MArch), and nine taught postgraduate programmes encompassing History and Critical Thinking in Architecture (MA), Projective Cities (Taught MPhil) and Sustainable Environmental Design (MSc/MArch), amongst others.

AA Director, Eva Franch said, ‘since our founding in 1847 we have never ceased to create new horizons, institutionally and academically. This is a significant milestone for the AA and demonstrates how we have grown and progressed as an institution that has always valued independence. Receiving TDAP marks a new era for our institution; these are exciting times for the AA. The process has required considerable work from all members of staff and students. I would like to take this opportunity to credit them for this major achievement’.

President of the AA Council, Victoria Thornton added, ‘the TDAP process has recognised our strong governance, academic standards, scholarship and teaching as well as the environment supporting the delivery of taught higher education programmes’.

The School’s application for Taught Degree Awarding Powers was supported by the Architects Registration Board, the Royal Institute of British Architects and The Open University.
