matias del campo moody objects lecture advanced design studies the university of tokyo

Lecture: Moody Objects Speaker: Matias del Campo, Associate Professor of Architecture, Taubman College of Architecture, University of Michigan July 7, 2015 (Tuesday) 17:00-19:00

Matias del Campo explores in his lecture “Moody Objects” the lineages of ontographic qualities in recent computational design techniques. It brokers between the quality of permutations of objects as design trajectory, and the non- physical entities that constitute primary realities between sensual (moody) and real objects.

Chilean born and Austrian native, Matias del Campo graduated with distinction from the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, Austria. In 2003 he co-founded SPAN Architects in Vienna, together with Sandra Manninger. The globally acting practice is best known for their sophisticated application of contemporary technologies in architectural production. Their award winning architectural designs are informed by Baroque geometries, romantic atmospheres, and biological systems. Matias del Campo ́s obsessive explorations of contemporary moods are fueled by the opulent repertoire of materialization in nature in combination with cutting edge technologies, as well as form as a driving force in design at large. Apart of his role as head of design at SPAN Architects Matias del Campo serves as Associate Professor of Architecture at Taubman College School of Architecture, University of Michigan

Special Guest Lecture Series Florian Busch David Erdman Tohru Horiguchi

Continuity and Difference Florian Busch After graduating from Bauhaus University in Weimar and the Architectural Association in London, Florian Busch worked for Toyo Ito & Associates from 2004 until 2008 where he led several teams on projects such as the Ghent Forum for Music, Dance and Visual Culture, the Torres Fira in Barcelona, the Market Street Tower in Singapore, the Taichung Opera House. In 2009, he founded Florian Busch Architects, an office practicing architecture, urbanism, and socio-cultural analysis. Based in Tokyo, FBA flexibly draw on an extensive world-wide network of experts in the field of construction and design. FBA’s projects range from research & analysis to architecture at all scales.

underpressure David Erdman The lecture will describe how davidclovers has been exploring innovative methods of massing through recent projects. The lecture will focus on aspects of massing as it relates to “pressurizing,” “thickening” and “mediating” architectural space. By recapitulating “mass production” as the literal “production of mass,” Erdman will outline how digital/physical modeling, and fabrication processes pressurize the high contrast between materials, programs and geometries in their work. Slowing down mediums (like lighting) and mass media (like graphic design) to the point of materiality Erdman will elaborate on how their projects “mass (verb) media” – bilaterally placing pressure on “architecture” to speed up and pressure on “media” to slow down. The lecture will contextualize all of this through the lens of a practice working amid the growing pressures of designing architecture within and outside of Asia.

Single surface as an open function Learning from the writings of Jeffrey Kipnis Tohru Horiguchi Tohru Horiguchi is an architectural researcher who lives in Kyoto and teaches at Ritsumeikan University in the Architecture and Urban Design Department, where he also coordinates its new graduate program, known as Ritsumeikan SDP. He has also taught internationally, giving workshops and lectures together with Hitoshi Abe or by himself. He is also a graduate of Ohio State University where he studied under Jeffrey Kipnis.

thomas weaver alphabet lecture advanced design studies the university of tokyo

Lecture: Alphabet Speaker: Thomas Weaver Architectural Association, School of Architecture March 9, 2015 (Monday) 14:00-15:30

This talk will be structured around an alphabet of 26 key images, from A through to Z, Albers through to to Zebra, that have appeared over the last eight years through the pages of the architectural journal AA Files. Each image will be presented not only through its immediate place within the journal, but through its pictorial, anecdotal, historiographic and iconographic architectural associations. The effect, hopefully, will be of a varied and eclectic architecture in 26 parts, yet one that still somehow suggests the singularity of a unified, whole project.

Thomas Weaver teaches at the AA School of Architecture in London, where he also edits all of the AA’s books and journals, including the award-winning title, AA Files

Lecture: Little Walk in a Lost Paradise Speaker: Francois Roche April 17, 2013 18:30-20:00

François Roche is the principal of New-Territories (R&Sie(n) / [eIf/bʌt/c]). He is based in Bangkok for [eIf/bʌt/c], in Paris for R&Sie(n) and in NY with his studio of research at Graduate School of Architecture, Plannin and Preservation (GSAPP), Columbia University.

Through these different structures, his architectural works and protocols seek to articulate the real and/or fictional, the geographic situations and narrative structures that can transform them.

François Roche architectural designs and processes have been shown at, among other places, Institute of Contemporary Art (London, 2001), Mori Art Museum (Tokyo, 2004), Centre Pompidou (Paris, 2003), Musée d’Art Moderne (Paris, 2005, 2006), the Tate Modern (London 2006) and Orléans/ArchiLab (1999, 2001, 2003). Work by R&Sie(n), New-Territories were selected for exhibition at the French pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennales of 1990, 1996, 2000, 2002 and for the international pavilion in 2000, 2004, 2008, 2010 and 2012.

He has been guest professor at numbers of internationally prestigious schools including GSAPP since 2006 and was the guest editor of LOG#25 for the issue in July 2012: reclaim resi(lience)stance.
