About the event
This year as we settle into our new home, we continue our work of developing architectural design research methodologies through the work of our nine units. The work advances sometimes with trepidation but always venturously, intentionally, and lyrically. Through our teaching and learning, we translate the complex conceptual manoeuvres required to negotiate the contested conditions and circumstances encountered in speculation on the past, present, and future; of how me might apprehend architectural production and spatial practice in South Africa and the African diaspora through the lens of our constantly shifting interpretations of elusive architectures. Whether working in Jozi, Gabarone, or Gorée, or through exploratory forays to Venice, to Ann Arbor, or San Juan, our ranging preoccupations shift from notions of evolving ideologies – evolve – through action and motion – move – into the metaphoric and tangible space where we learn to translate. This year we sought to make sense of how imaginaries might be realised, we worked to translate thoughts into words, ideas into images, senses into space, and transformative pedagogies into transformative practices.
The exhibition will run from the 24th November until 1st December 2023.
