Work Your Talk: A Sharing Session on Participatory Architectural Practices

March 5, 2010

Expeditio (Kotor, Montenegro), is co-leading the Sostenuto ‘Governance’ Lab together with Zunino e Partner (Italy). Expeditio will be participating to the workshop ‘Work Your Talk: A Sharing Session on Participatory Architectural Practices’, on 4 March 2010 in London.

Work Your Talk is a sharing session that is part of the Public Occasion Agency series of events. This event, hosted at the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London will bring together five community driven architectural groups from three different continents through an online conference. The session will allow participants – Expeditio (Montenegro), re:ACT (Singapore), Claudia Amico from Espacio Expresion (Peru), Maya Ballen from (Y)NCLUYE (Peru) and Juan Sebastian Bustamante Fernandez & Natalia Castanho Cardenas from Medellin La Mas Educada (Colombia) – to exchange ideas between their different modes of participatory operations in different localities and contexts.

The rationale for having the session is to introduce alternative architectural practices to our school community, in terms of the content and the mode of delivery. These groups were selected based on their various community engagement efforts, ranging from conservation projects to organizing design workshops with the local communities. Participatory and collaborative architectural practices are rapidly gaining popularity as an alternative to traditional design practices, where community participation is factored within the design intervention process.

This event hopes to introduce some of these practices to the school community and perhaps define what community and participatory architectural practices really means. In addition, the online communication tools are changing how architectural practices function and the event hopes to serve as a platform in testing out new ways of hosting public lectures with participants located remotely.
