When and Where:
The workshop runs from the 13 of July to the 14th of October. The site is Abetenim Village, in the middle rural territories of the ancient Ashanti region of Ghana.
The aspiration is to help develop a contemporary earth architecture tradition for the region
and along the way, create arts villages to promote arts and design education. The basic idea is to generate user-centered design for low-tech construction to create durable and scalable house types by exploring the accumulated knowledge about ways of building in a tropical climate.
A Platform of Hands-on Knowledge:
It is a reinterpretation of schools in terms of tradition and in the way communities hand down theirs culture. Life-long education is woven into the political, economic, spiritual and physical life. In other words, it envisions the total development of everyone. In an art village the two processes, creation and learning by doing, are very close. The house for artist acquires sensory values and a special sharing spot within the village, as an open learning system. The design aims to integrate locals and guests artist, both interested in enhancing their skills. This full cultural immersion triggers a virtuous circle which improves the unrecognised local resources. The goal is to create an active network of artists and locals, offer a platform for the presentation art, and to develop a critical forum for the promotion of Ghana culture.
The site of eARThouse project will be Abetenim, located in the Ejisu-Juaben District of the Ashanti Region, 40km from Kumasi. The village is dotted by mud house types and within a population of 1000 inhabitants, the people of the village are essentially farmers. As a local and widely available resource, earth and mud construction can serve as a natural building technology for durable future homes without the high cost and negative impacts of imported concrete and other foreign construction methods, to overcome the stigma of constructions made by earth usually referred to poor farmer’s house and the mobilization of existing unrecognised local resources and cultural artistic heritage.
Rammed earth method gives us the ability to self-build a wall with local resources and less waste of materials. The project emphasizes the use of available resources and employment to local artisans. The design is simple, practical and economical.
The Build-design Workshop:
The main goal is to bring together local builders, craftspeople and enthusiastic volunteers to share the knowledge and expertise of everyone involved to create a built environment in order to strengthen the earth construction in Ghana’s long tradition of sustainable housing. On top of providing a community in need with new housing solutions, volunteers will learn how to build a earth house using a site-specific approach, traditional practices and encountering local materials, construction and community. They will immerse in the rich Ashanti’s culture to explore and learn by collaborating on the building process and they will have the chance to visit local attractions participating in field trips.
Design, site-specific issues, and construction strategy are all debated in an effort to create useful structures that are environmentally sustainable and meet local needs. The project culminates in a public celebration of the completed project by way of open house exhibition, or public performance and foods. By engaging in field trips to observe local architecture and working on the building project with local builders, the international participants are exposed to Non-Western ways of thinking and doing in earth architecture.
The Earth Architecture Workshop 2016 is funded through participation donations from the project participants and private donations. These costs cover all fees associated with joining the workshop. The participation fee (300€) is used for the purchasing of material and supplies to complete the construction of the home for artists and a small percentage to cover the workshop organisation. Raising more contributions we will try to reduce them as much as possible. So, please help us to promote our workshop with your interested contacts and ensure the successful completion of the project.

Curatorial Project in Sydney, Tin Sheds Gallery, Darlington, NSW, Australia
28 Jul – 16 Sep 2016
A multiplicity of voices is the defining feature of architecture today. Never before have there been so many distinctive and original visions. The time is ripe to raise the inevitable questions:
– How many architectures do we need?
– Can we remain critical by simply accepting such a diverse and contradictory contemporary panoply of ideas?
– Do we let go of all unifying principles?
– Can we operate without authorities? Should the present diversity be encouraged?
– Should the most distinctive voices be amplified?
– Should we continue celebrating ‘starchitects’ who haul architecture in many different directions?
City of Ideas: Architects’ Voices and Visions, curated by Vladimir Belogolovsky, is a stage for 13 such voices to be heard, juxtaposed and interpreted.
Presented through audio recordings, interview transcripts, quotes and images, this exhibition portrays today’s leading architects and society in general. Listen to these voices as they help us challenge one fundamental question: what is architecture, here and now?
Featured architects’ voices:
Will Alsop, Peter Eisenman, YonaFriedman, Anton Garcia Abril & Debora Mesa (Ensamble Studio), Zvi Hecker, Kengo Kuma, Daniel Libeskind, Juergen Mayer H., Glenn Murcutt, Wolf Prix (Coop Himmelb(l)au), Thom Mayne (Morphosis), Hani Rashid & Lise Anne Couture (Asymptote Architecture) and James Wines (SITE).
Vladimir Belogolovsky is the founder of the New York-based Intercontinental Curatorial Project, which focuses on organizing, curating, and designing architectural exhibitions worldwide. Trained as an architect at Cooper Union in New York, he has written over two hundred articles, as well as five books, Conversations with Architects (DOM, 2015), Harry Seidler: LIFEWORK (Rizzoli, 2014), Felix Novikov (TATLIN, 2009; DOM, 2013), Soviet Modernism: 1955-1985 (TATLIN, 2010), and Green House (TATLIN, 2009).
He has curated extensive international exhibitions including Harry Seidler: Painting Toward Architecture which has travelled the world since 2012; it was shown in over a dozen museums and universities across Europe, North and South America, and Australia.

SCI-Arc Event, Southern California Institute of Architecture, California, USA
Joe Day/deegen-day design
June 3 – July 24, 2016
SCI-Arc is pleased to present Joe Day/deegen-day design: ARRAYS, opening June 3 in the SCI-Arc Library. ARRAYS collects over three dozen maps and diagrams developed by Joe Day and his practice deegan-day design over the last two decades. Many chart a domain within the field – contemporary architecture in Los Angeles, digital vanguard possibilities, the interests of his SCI-Arc colleagues. Others explore the neighboring disciplines of fine art, urbanism and cinema. Some imagine cross-pollinations between those worlds.

LSE ‘Urban Age’ Conference at Venice Architecture Biennale, Venice, Italy
14 – 15 July 2016
LA BIENNALE DI VENEZIA PROVIDES A FITTING STAGE FOR
THE URBAN AGE ‘SHAPING CITIES’ CONFERENCE
Over 40 speakers from 25 cities in Asia, Africa, Europe, South and North America will gather in Venice at the Urban Age ‘Shaping Cities’ conference to debate one of the most pressing problems of the 21st century: How are cities shaped? By whom and for whom? How are the conflicts of our increasingly urban age – inequality, climate change, urban growth and expansion, informality, democratic representation and urban stewardship – experienced and lived by the majority of urban dwellers? And, what can we do to make cities more tolerant, adaptable and sustainable?
Mayors and urban leaders of Barcelona (Spain), Bogotá (Colombia), Kampala (Uganda), Venice (Italy), Paris (France) and Safed (Israel) will debate these questions with the key players in international and national organisations including the United Nations, UN Habitat, the Cities Alliance, India’s National Institute of Urban Affairs and the Chicago Council on Global Affairs.
Urban decision-makers, researchers and commentators will join leading architects, planners and designers whose creative work and practical ideas feature in the world’s largest and most respected architecture exhibition organised by La Biennale di Venezia.

The poetic and playful work of architecten de vylder vinck taillieu (Jan De Vylder, Inge Vinck and Jo Taillieu) combines a respect for what already exists with a lyrical and often humorous understanding of architecture as bricolage, as a construction within constructions like nesting matryoshka dolls. In their projects, they create curious plays of transparency, irony, optical illusions, duplications and copies of existing buildings. All this results in an extremely personal, ‘sub-real’ architectural world where reality and illusion magically blend, often compared to the surreal, pictorial world of René Magritte.
Indian architectural practice Studio Mumbai, founded by Bijoy Jain in 2005, has developed a body of work that continues to reference aspects of both Indian and Western cultures. What sets the studio apart is a brilliant combination of tradition and modernity. Local resources and Indian craftsmanship form the basis for highly contemporary architectural designs. Thoughtful and uncompromising to the last detail, the architecture of Studio Mumbai cares deeply about the relationship between man and nature and insists on the importance of the genius loci.

The RIBA President’s Medals Student Awards are aimed at promoting excellence in the study of architecture, rewarding talent, and encouraging architectural debate worldwide.
First awarded in 1836, they are among the most prestigious and long-lasting awards in architectural education anywhere in the world, preceding the Royal Gold Medal (for living architects) established in 1848. The awards categories include the Bronze Medal for Part 1, the Silver Medal for Part 2 and the Dissertation Medal.
In 2015, the RIBA invited 340 schools of architecture in 65 countries to submit entries that were then judged over three days by independent panels of international experts, including architects, academics, designers and artists. This exhibition features selected student work from these nominations and will be on display in the RIBA in London for two months before touring the UK and internationally in 2016.
All nominated projects can be viewed online at www.presidentsmedals.com.

November Lectures in London, UK
Nov 2015 – dates/times on the poster below:
The event yearly organized by the Sto Foundation in four different European cities: Stuttgart, in Germany, Milan, in Italy, Graz, Paris, in France, Prague in Hungary, is, this year, including London for the first time.
All events are hosted by some major European Schools of Architecture, among them The University of Stuttgart, in Germany, the Politecnico of Milan, in Italy, the TU Graz, in Austria, the École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Paris-Belleville in Paris, in France and the TU Prague in Hungary.
In London, the Sto Foundation has chosen, among others, the School of Architecture at the University of East London, for its outstanding positions on civic engagement and for its interest in manipulating materiality and new technologies.
Sto appointed a curator, Architect Maria Alessandra Segantini, Director of C+S Architects, (web.cipiuesse.it) to choose a topic of discussion and invite four outstanding architects to expand on it, through a lecture and a dialogue with her.
As the curator of the 2015 November Lectures in London, Segantini would like to address and discuss the question of public space in our complex information age.
Lecturers have been chosen for their capacity of tacking the nodes of a profession, that of the architect, which is presently undergoing a series of radical changes and where all the different stakeholder involved in the processes of design, construction and final users are asked to sit together around a table and discuss about the future of the piece of the city they are going to transform.
Invited speakers are Freek Persyn, 51N4E, Belgium, Fuensanta Nieto, Nieto Sobejano Architects, Spain, Germany, Alejandro Aravena, Elemental, Chile and Nader Tehrani, NADAAA, USA.
All of them have worked successfully in very specific but different ways to make the process of design an open-ended source.

HJEM, Copenhagen, Denmark
By Johna Hansen
25 Sep – 23 Oct 2015
The exhibition HJEM [home] begins with the consideration that places as well as objects hold traces of their inhabitants or owners. That codes can be found in the way things are used, constructed or structured around, which tell stories that reach beyond their functionality. If the inhabitant/owner is also the maker of the place/object, these two entities can coalesce. In this crossover, one can discover more than that which is immediately apparent.

from Nov 15
picture from organiser
This architecture event will take place in the Edward Building, which can be accessed from the front entrance of the architecture building at UCLAN opposite Granthams printers on Corporation street.
The title of the show is META modernism.
“The Modernist project is a disaster.
The abhorrence of the modern world, expressed most explicitly in a comprehensive popular rejection of the Modernist city, stands testament to the abject failure of the Modernist project to deliver its promised utopia. Mounting a Post-Modern critique of this failure, as irony and as dejection, was itself equally fruitless and ultimately facile, offering far less, in terms of substance, than the Modernist project itself.
If the terms Modernism and Post-Modernism are now somewhat lifeless, they retain between them, at least some prospect of a new order of re-engagement.”
