Situated Practice Live: Vanishing Points
03 March 2021, 1:00 pm–2:00 pm
A live review of projects from the graduating students of Situated Practice MA.
The Bartlett School of Architecture
This event will be broadcast on the school's YouTube channel at 13:00 GMT. No registration is needed.
This event gives students from the 2019-2020 cohort of Situated Practice MA an opportunity to present their work to the public.
Projects this year are field reports from vanishing points where uncertain pasts meet a fragile future. They explore subjects such as participatory city-making, colonial legacies, ethical conservation, property rights, Highland clearances, Aztec herbal manuscripts, China’s one-child policy, the creation of networks of empathy, constant productivity in the contemporary age, failed architectures of elevated pathways, and the material remains of the sites of residence of the last emperor of Ethiopia, Haile Selassie.
Through this diverse range of work, located in sites in Colombia, Dalian, Singapore, the City of London, Thessaloniki, Beijing, the Scottish Highlands, Jerusalem, Bath, and Massawa, we demonstrate our commitment to the idea of practice as a political operation within the public realm, where each project aims to re-imagine the role of the public practitioner in the 21st century.
This event will be broadcast live on YouTube. Simply visit the school's YouTube channel at 13:00 to watch the live stream.
