15-24? New to Architecture? Join this workshop with Royal College of Art School of Architecture tutors Tom Greenall, Nicola Koller, and Matteo Mastrandrea, exploring what architecture means and experimenting with how we can use new and old technologies to build and unbuild worlds.
Through discussion and activities we’ll think collectively about what social architecture means, and how architecture relates to other art forms you might be interested in.
No prior experience in of knowledge of architecture is necessary; this workshop would be best suited to those who haven’t studied architecture previously.
This event is inspired by the upcoming Gerrard O’Carroll Memorial Lecture: Fiona Raby. The Gerrard O’Carroll Memorial Lecture series is developed in collaboration with Adrian O’Carroll and Rosy Head, and supported by Adrian and Jennifer O’Carroll.
Matteo Mastrandrea is a Design Director at Es Devlin Studio. He studied architecture at Cambridge University and the Royal College of Art, and philosophy at Oxford University. He is currently completing a PhD in the relationship between film and architecture.
Nicola Koller is a Strategic Design Consultant and Associate Director at Studio Ashby. She has completed projects in 24 countries and previously worked for renowned designers including Sir Paul Smith and Ilse Crawford. She studied architecture at Oxford Brookes and the Royal College of Art.
Tom Greenall is an architect and Director of London-based practice DSDHA. He studied architecture at Sheffield University and the Royal College of Art and has taught architecture and design in both the UK and the Netherlands for the last 10-years.
Matteo, Nicola and Tom teach Architectural Design Studio 4 (ADS4) together at the Royal College of Art. The studio explores the implications of emerging technologies on human behaviour and develops critical and speculative strategies that illustrate how these technologies contribute toward the creation of a more sustainable, equitable and egalitarian society.
