Bureau de Change is an award-winning
architecture practice founded by architects Katerina Dionysopoulou and Billy
Mavropoulos. Its work is a direct product of the founders’ upbringing,
passions and experiences – combining the pragmatism and formality of their
architectural training with a desire to bring a sense of theatre, playfulness
and innovation to the design of spaces, products and environments. Architecture has to be a result of a
collaborative effort, by analysing and through prototyping, testing and
making. Bartlett graduate Katerina
trained at Foster+Partners before joining Heatherwick Studio. Billy
studied at the Royal College of Art and trained at Foster+Partners. Prior to

Everyday
Urbanism
is a concept introduced by Margaret Crawford, John Chase and John Kaliski in
1999. Everyday Urbanism is an approach to Urbanism that finds its meanings in
everyday life, connecting human and social meanings with urban designs. Margret
Crawford ” everyday urbanism is accretional. Its not big moves ” meaning the growth
or increase by the gradual accumulation. A slow process which is something I
agree strongly, Everyday life is a process which takes allot of matters into
consideration, Social and environmental. I believe without the keys aspects of
Urbanism designing and producing but also adapting to present and future
generation would be a very inadequate to say the least

Lecture 05_The Social
City

 

How
does, or might, design contribute to the construction of publics? Significantly
asked question, two sections of the question split into design and the public,
linking back the globalization, and gender opinion, in my view. Consisting of
the fundamentals politics technology and design. The diverse cultural
assumptions of knowledge and truth and consequently multiple publics and their
different interpretation are a shared representation of how design contributes
to public, with the importance of characteristics. “the problem of the public was not a problem of definition – it was a
problem of action” indicating the public served a highlight of concern. The
problem being understanding the ways in which the products and processes of
design intersect with the public creating productive and multiple arguments. Salvo’s draws together theories and method from design,
the social sciences, and the humanities, to analyze the social and political
qualities of design and to prototype experimental systems.

Postmoderism is
20th-century style and concept in the arts, architecture, and criticism, which
represents a movement from modernism and is characterized by different artistic
styles and media. Its skeptical
interpretations of culture, literature, art, philosophy, history, economics,
architecture, fiction, and literary criticism. The function of this term is to
create meaning in a balance, through structural arrangement elements. Charles
A. Jencks 1977, Page 308, Several Architects are moving beyond modern styles in
a tentative way, Postmodernism architecture was most found upon with students,
where they could start practicing design in a more convincing manner. Quoted ” because
its only this group which is really free enough to try their hand at any
possible style, modern or hybrid” Very true as students can go beyond
postmodernism as the limits are endless, where outside the globalized world is
very dogmatic, In the sense of principle.

Lecture 01_Postmodernism

 

“Gender equality and equity in design is often highlighted, but
it often results in producing designs that highlight the differences
between men and women” A statement which consists of characteristics more than
gender individuality, Stating that the artefacts that designers create have a
significant importance which includes, Formation, Maintenance and mostly
Gender.  To understand there is a clear
illustration of separation between, Adults and children, Age and time also
Generation and Environment, “The
furniture company IKEA chooses to put girls’ names such as Felicia and Alvine
on the soft, intimate, and decorative products like fabrics, rugs, curtains,
and upholstery, while more functional products such as bookcases and chairs,
receive a boy’s name like Billy and Sebastian” The principle may not be as
clear as the example stated above by Karin Ehrnberger, However still raises a
valid point, should the society of design be heavily influenced by gender or
opinion.

Lecture 02_Identity and Everyday

 

Jarzombek works on a wide range of topics, both historical and
theoretical, from the 12th century to the modern era. He is one of the
country’s leading advocates for global history, Jarzombek’s and Prakash’s other
joint venture is the Architecture, the lecture provided a comprehensive tour
through the ages, spinning the globe to present the landmark architectural
movements that characterized each time period. Spanning from 3,500 b.c.e. to
present. Preservation enhances the image of architecture, and places finances
not in the making of new architecture but in its upkeep and maintenance and
rebuilding, Urban destruction another focus of Jarzombek’s work. My opinion,
Globalization is a development and influence operating on a large scale based
upon the stature of the environment, A series of social, political, and
economic changes that affect everything from the operation of nations to
everyday life which come under the collective title of ‘globalization’.
