One day seminar at Green On Red, Dublin.
March 1st 2008.
All buildings are predictions.
All predictions are wrong.
To coincide with framework/rupture
, I organised this day long seminar at Green On Red
spoke about the idea of capturing time in photography. Riklef Rambow
spoke about the field of Post Occupancy Occupation. Ellen Rowley
presented a paper entitled King Kong Architecture
, which looked at the history of large modernist buildings in Dublin. Owen Drumm discussed the basics of acoustics as well as some basic techniques for improving the sound of a space. Francois Chastanet
spoke about Pixação, a form of graffiti specific to São Paulo, and specifically the way the letter-forms relate structurally to both the bodies of the writers and the fabric of the city.
There was also a screening of The Big Bank
, an industrial film which was commissioned by Sisks which documents the process of constructing the Central Bank building.
was presented with the kind support of Green On Red. Many thanks to all the speakers for their time and effort.
