TUESDAY 8TH OF NOVEMBER
6PM – Please note this later start time
5th floor boardroom, Evolution House, ECA
Our Next Prokalo ‘Rough and Ready Research Share’ will bring two universities together with two PhD candidates approaching similar areas: The overlap between these two researcher’s work should foster discussion on engagement with public spaces, mapping as methodology and participatory design. It will also allow us to take a look at the PhD research experience across different institutions north and south of the border.
On Tuesday the 8th of November we will hear from:
(PhD in Architecture, Newcastle University)
‘The In-between role as Spatial Agency: toward the participatory design in Wenzhou, China: Self-positioning throughout the projects’
(Key Words: Colonial Style Architecture, Mapping, Public Space, Participatory Design, Wenzhou, China.)
(PhD in Architecture, The University of Edinburgh)
‘Disparity and defiance: introducing a night-time urban design framework from a Taipei night market’
(Key words: differential space, insurgent public space, night-time city, night markets, Taipei, Taiwan)
As always there will be lots of discussion and sharing throughout at our informal seminar series and plenty of juice, wine and nibbles!
**PLEASE ALSO NOTE WE WILL BE DISCUSSING POSSIBLE THEMES FOR THE ARCHITECTURAL HUMANITIES RESEARCH ASSOCIATION AND PROKALO SYMPOSIUM IN APRIL 2017 – So if you want to contribute to this discussion please be there!**
We look forward to seeing you!
All the best,
Becky, Laura, and Roxana
