Madskills: Self-Documenting Construction on Social Media

Can these instructive, performative, and often strangely satisfying videos shift the public perception of labour and workers in the building sector? Is it possible to control the image projected of one’s workplace by self-documenting its spaces and activities, despite the power of social media to dictate how that image is distributed? And can the constant scrutiny of the online community expressed in comments be leveraged to improve building standards and conditions for construction workers worldwide?... READ MORE...

MAYRIT Design and Architecture Biennial presents “Wet Dreams”

The works of contributing artists delve into healing, toxic, and residual waters, as well as into bodily fluids. They invite engagement with rain, rivers, reservoirs, and muds. They summon the sewers, the valves regulating flows, and conduits hidden within walls, basements, and ceilings. They invoke the world of hoses and pipes, and the orifices that allow entry to the liquids soaking our worlds, as well as the leaks, drips, and occasional overflows of the repressed.... READ MORE...

Urban Rooms at the Farrell Centre

Instigated by the distinguished architect-planner, Sir Terry Farrell, and based at Newcastle University, the centre emerges from Farrell’s belief that “every city needs a place where people can come together to debate its future.” Central to realising this mission are the Urban Rooms—spaces where visitors can reflect on the city of Newcastle and broader Tyneside conurbation as it is now, and, through interactive exhibits and events, make their voices heard in shaping how it might change in the future....

Ghost Stories: The Carrier Bag Theory of Architecture

Curato da Sevince Bayrak e Oral Göktas, Ghost Stories: The Carrier Bag Theory of Architecture mette in discussione percezioni e approcci consolidati sugli edifici per scoprire proposte più speranzose per il futuro. La mostra invita ad ascoltare e comprendere la storia degli edifici abbandonati, invece di concentrarsi sugli esempi più gloriosi e di successo. L’adattamento della teoria del contenitore, dall’evoluzione all’architettura, conduce a un radicale cambiamento delle immagini che abbiamo ereditato, sia attraverso i dipinti rupestri nelle grotte preistoriche, sia nelle storie e nel paesaggio urbano moderno....
