Choreographing architectural gestures in urban spaces & sPins

Two events commissioned from one of the winning projects at the Behaviour Change Workshop, organised by the Grand Challenge of Human Wellbeing in January 2013:

sPins.
Choreographing architectural gestures in urban spaces

Thursday, 17 October 2013
18.30 – 20.00

Venue: Go1 Central House, The Bartlett School of Graduate Studies, University College London, 14 Upper Woburn Place, London WC1H 0NN

Meet the designers behind the installation sPins, and consider the question: How can connecting people through public space promote social connection and well-being? We explore architectural responses through a series of Pecha Kucha talks.

Designed by Ivana Petrusevski and Deyan Nenov (MSc Adaptive Architecture and Computation) sPins is commissioned through a UCL Grand Challenges project led by Dr Claire McAndrew (Research Associate at The Bartlett School of Graduate Studies) and Dr Sonali Wayal (Research Associate at Department of Infection and Population Health), in collaboration with Dr Anna Mavrogianni (Lecturer at The Bartlett School of Graduate Studies) and six postgraduate students: Nikhilesh Sinha (Development Planning Unit), Odysseas Dlakakis-Damianidis (The Bartlett School of Architecture), Emilie Glazer (Anthropology), Manu Savani (School of Public Policy/SPLASH), Keith O'Brien (Cognitive, Perceptual and Brain Sciences) and Sarah O'Farrell (Cognitive, Perceptual and Brain Sciences).

sPins is commissioned by a project awarded UCL Grand Challenge of Human Wellbeing Behaviour Change Research Prize 2013.
