The Symposium aims to bring together researchers, architects and artists to explore the use of media and representation of space
Media has been an inseparable part of production of architectural knowledge and practice. It's role however, has changed historically from allegorical illustrations to analogical and heuristic devices. The tension between architecture imagined and architecture conceived is precisely the driving force for progression in the field. Architecture is no longer limited to built space; it is rather generated through various stimuli fostered by imagination, investigation, and projection. The actual politics and expressible fantasies are inevitable part of such a perpetual process. When the confines of the discipline are stretched so tight that cracks begin to show, new practices would emerge.
The Symposium aims to bring together researchers, architects and artists to explore the use of media and representation of space as a form of multi-scalar investigation, from architecture to the territory and the urban. From analogue tools, and modelling techniques, to publication, speakers will discuss key projects from their practice that use artistic media beyond the pure representation of architecture but instead as a systematic form of enquiry.
