The Visual Past

  • Publisher: Ottoman History Podcast
  • Total Episodes: 35

“The Visual Past” showcases the latest research by scholars who explore the visual, spatial, and material culture that shaped the Ottoman world. The series will address not only objects, images, and calligraphy, but also works of architecture that were themselves contexts for other media. Before being designated historical landmarks or enshrined in museum displays, these rich artistic and architectural products constituted an intrinsic part of Ottoman life, intersecting with and affecting all levels of society. Episodes in this series investigate crucial issues about sight and seeing in the Ottoman Empire, including the power of the gaze, the depiction of human and animal imagery, and questions of style, aesthetics, and patronage. The series also explores transformations in technology that opened up new possibilities during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries for the popular dissemination of images through photographs, print media, and film.

IKI Mn’M Symposium 2011 Measuring the Non-Measurable

  • Publisher: Kazuyo Sejima
  • Total Episodes: 6

This symposium was held 1-5 November at Keio University Hiyoshi Campus. It was the first step in development of a major research project which aims to advance urban design theory related to dialectical couple density/intensity by: (a) focusing on dialectical relationship between concrete (multiple) densities and (multiple) intensities; (b) emphasizing and addressing the complexity arising from recognition of cultural specificity of the urban; defining local assessment criteria (as measure of responsibility and responsiveness of design proposals). The spatial focus of the project is on two types of urban environment which commonly understood as extreme poles of intensity: busy public transport hubs and ordinary residential areas,with their corresponding, high and low densities and diversities. Special emphasis is on possibility of representation(s) and quantifications of key qualitative aspects of the urban. The project explores spatial and temporal nodes of urban intensification and their dialectical interrelationship, intensities associated with places, rhythms and the resultant socio-cultural uniqueness. While aiming to be comprehensive in its scope, special attention of the project will be given to detection, definition, recording, representation and, eventually, “measuring” of those intensities which are considered to be non-measurable, such as human encounter, mnemonic aspects of space/place etc. The project focuses on the examples from Tokyo and selected Asian cities (Bangkok, Beijing, Hong Kong, Singapore). Those will be investigated and benchmarked against referential cases from Europe (Barcelona, Belgrade, Copenhagen, Florence) and Australia (Melbourne).

Basak Senova (curator) LAPSES, artists: Banu Cennetoglu, Ahmet Ögüt – Pavilion of Turkey 53rd International Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia,

  • Publisher: radioCona, http://www.cona.si/radio
  • Total Episodes: 1

The “Lapses” project, developed for the Pavilion of Turkey, consists of projects that demonstrate how the perception of “occurring events” can vary and lead to the differing narrations of history because of lapses in collective memory. The project has been realized through works by two artists: Banu Cennetoglu’s “CATALOG” and Ahmet Ögüt’s “Exploded City”. Both projects reveal the possibility for diverse memory formations or diverse narratives, conceivable through lapses.

The project is accompanied by a book series of three volumes: the first volume which is edited by Basak Senova explores the conceptual framework, the process and the spatial design; the second volume, edited by Jalal Toufic, functions as the source, inspiration, reference for the entire project, consisting of philosophical articles; and the third volume, edited by Basak Senova, discuses “lapses” through four case studies. The book series was designed by Eray Makal, 12punto. The “Lapses” project is realized under the auspices of the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, with the contribution of Promotion Fund of the Turkish Prime Ministry.

Designing New Realities

  • Publisher: Th3 KCAD XR LAB
  • Total Episodes: 1

Welcome to Designing New Realities, a podcast series exploring the experience side of XR experiences. Why do we need such a specific topic? From our perspective it’s actually not so specific. Depending on your perspective, because of your unique point of view, your experience in an XR application can be vastly different than anyone else’s. And, while the complexity that comes along with adding a third dimension to a solution or application is exciting and inspiring to our creative minds, it wreaks havoc when trying to produce something that can appeal to a mass audience. Since the dawn of time, mass dissemination of information has been shared via 2D interfaces – from cave paintings telling the story of the animals we hunted to stone tablets giving us rules for life… to books to newspapers to websites to smartphones. And, over time, intuitive standards and best practices have evolved, which help condition and align audience expectations, ultimately making the information easily digestible, usable. Not so just yet within the 3D/Spatial world. Sure, we can borrow from principles 2D design has developed, but like a Square stuck in Flatland, we don’t know what we don’t know. Now, with cloud computing, always-connected ubiquitous devices, the tech is stable, capable and scalable – ready for mass adoption… the last hurdle? Usability. The value pulsing through XR solutions is exponential because where 2D info is locked in box, accessible only when we go to it, XR solutions manifest all around us – something we experience. As industry journalist and this series’ inaugural guest Jesse Damiani notes: “XR opens us up to the full 3D reality of the digital world, which we’ll interact with using our whole bodies—marking the single biggest growth opportunity in the history of design.” With that, to come full circle, and turn that circle into a sphere, each episode this series will wax philosophy with a guest expert, discuss and dissect the magical, practical and tactical XR examples out there today, and hone in what makes a solution usable. So, join us on this journey as we break through space and experience the Th3rd Dimension…

Landscape and the City: Winter 2014

  • Publisher: Claire Napawan
  • Total Episodes: 16

UC Davis’s Landscape Architecture lunchbag lecture series is offered this winter by professor Claire Napawan and focuses on the role of landscapes and environmental design within the context of the city, given the complex socio-spatial, ecological, and economic conditions present. This includes examining projects including streetscapes, public parks, exhibitions, and infrastructure and considering urban ecology, community participation, and design theory as important contributors to the conversation. Urban areas are the sites of escalating pressures given political changes that place greater responsibilities on local government, fiscal challenges for supporting public services, the increased privatization of public services, and impacts of global environmental change. Despite these challenges, living in urban areas is more popular than ever. Through the introduction of multiple projects in cities throughout the globe, these lectures will introduce a range of sites, techniques, and considerations for landscapes in the city.

Introduction to Adaptive Architecture and Computation – Video

  • Publisher: Various
  • Total Episodes: 9

The MSc Adaptive Architecture and Computation aims to give students a comprehensive understanding of the practical skills required to create generative, emergent and responsive forms, through exposure to real programming environments. In order to achieve this goal, the course team comprises both architects and experts in artificial intelligence. Programming is taught through the Processing language, which was created to teach computation to designers with no prior experience of computing. Time is dedicated to studio sessions with experienced tutors who have a track record of research into architecture and computation. Alongside the practical classes, the MSc AAC offers a unique theoretical framework. We believe that the true power of the computational methodology is only realised through an understanding of its interaction with the social, environmental and spatial context in which it operates. Two lecture series present both the process side of the generation of environments, as well as the social implications of the product. Lectures from the course team are balanced by guest lecturers from the forefront of practice and research. The central theme of the lectures is one of how to create embedded, embodied and adaptive design. That is, design that couples the relationship of spatial configuration and society to the computational ability to analyse and respond to the environment.
