MTalks STOREY/STORY: Telling architectural tales through new narratives
Tue 23 Jan 2018, 6.00pm–7.00pm
Narrative is a potent source for critical reflection and the dissemination of alternative knowledge and awareness. Narrative possesses a powerful capacity to affect change. And though fiction has been embraced within wider design communities, it continues to hold a peripheral position within mainstream architectural teaching and practice.
This one-of-a-kind MTalks explores the role of architecture as storyteller at community levels—considering diverse cultural, LGBTQIA+, gender-nonconforming and age-inclusive narratives. It also considers the individual, including the tales of the architect, the client and the student of architectural design.
Reflecting on the ever-evolving role of temporal media possibilities for students and practitioners, this panel will interrogate alternative architectural environments—such as screen and online gaming—as a vehicle for rethinking both our spatial surroundings and public space.
Join us at MPavilion as Joshua Boggs, Katica Pedisic, Ken Wong, Rachel Hurst, Simona Castricum and Stephanie Liddicoat facilitate a timely discussion that approaches the role of narrative within diverse media platforms as a means to envelope the community, drawing us into more diverse and inclusive architectural and urban encounters.
