Possible Mediums Conference

Center Space + Jury Space / Knowlton Hall
February 7, 2013 - 6:00pm to February 10, 2013 - 2:00pm

 

Assistant Professor of Architecture Kristy Balliet will serve as a conference chair in the upcoming Possible Mediums conference, co-hosted by The Ohio State University Knowlton School of Architecture, University of Kentucky College of Design, University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture + Urban Planning, and The University of Illinois at Chicago School of Architecture. The event will take place in Columbus, Ohio at the Knowlton School of Architecture from February 7th to the 10th. 

The Possible Mediums conference is composed of a series of workshops and panel discussions revolving around four “possible mediums.” Challenging the boundaries of architectural convention, the invited workshop leaders employ exploratory processes rooted in mediums external to the discipline (such as film or comics) or developed from atypical applications of more conventional mediums (such as drawings or models). The technical sophistication and inventive applications of their work reflect two major developments within speculative architecture of the past decade: a broad diffusion of technological expertise and a shift from critical to projective theory. Preserving commitment to expertise and imagination, Possible Mediums places this group of designers in productive dialog, unpacking their collective foundations and futures.
