Cojournal || Round and not square relationships
1 May @ 8:00 am - 30 June @ 5:00 pmUSD56
A CONVERSATION online about the ways we communicate. Connect. Or miss one another. It’s partly informed by the important book that almost all architects I know have a copy of, by Christopher Alexander. Let’s talk space, relationships, relating, design, form, and the interstitial that contains the potential for magic moments. Human scale. Artfully created. The shape of space. Poetics. This will be a really fun one for nerds of the architectural variety, especially those who love, also, to write. This edition of the online writing project, we will be giving away copies of our collected writings, The Quality of Space. It’s a work in progress. Add to it when you join us for RNSR.
What’s an ‘atelier?’
An atelier is a workshop or studio used by an artist or designer. Design Kompany’s ateliers are hosted by Akira Morita and Dipika Kohli.
ATELIERS, APPRENTICESHIPS & ARTMAKING. Design Kompany is hosting popup zinemaking ateliers. Before fancy academic schools for art and design came along, there were ateliers. Encouraging hands-on learning by doing. Apprentices came. Artworks were made and sold. DK imagine artmaking was less commodity-focused* and more about the experience. And for those seeking training, it wasn’t about, one might guess, the expensive tuition fees that come with ho-hum professors (jaded people who’ve forgotten the meaning of their occupation—here I recommend Art School Confidential). Perhaps it was about the magic, if I let myself be uncool and optimistic, of Art. What it can do. How it connects us, across time, and distance. Let’s *make* something. Let’s play? View gallery >
