Hack the City is hosting its third lab INTERSTITIAL INSERTIONS and are calling all architects, designers, artists, geographers and urban planners to take part. Building on Interactivos? and the IdeaLab, INTERSTITIAL INSERTIONS, provides you with an opportunity to work with leading architects, geographers and urban planners, who will guide you through a process for developing ideas for such city insertions. Outcomes of the workshop will be displayed as part of the HACK THE CITY programme and the Studiolab projects.
Lead by Greg Keeffe (Professor of Architecture at Queens University Belfast School of Architecture), Dr. Nick Dunn (Author and Principal Lecturer at the Manchester School of Architecture) & Dr. Alma Clavin (urban planner and geographer working at the School of Geography and Archaeology, NUI Galway) this 5-day workshop, will focus on developing workable design propositions for in-between and leftover spaces in the city. Participants will be lead through a process which critically reflects on theoretical and practical methodologies and approaches for urban design.
Teams of architects, artists, geographers and urbanists, as well as individuals are encouraged to apply. Ideas should focus on addressing liminal, in-between and left over spaces in the city.
The workshop will open to between 18-24 participants. Workshop coordinators and technical support will be available from 10-8PM for the duration of the 5-day workshop.
Admission is free. No materials or costs for production will be provided but assistance with visual design, mapping and critical development of the projects will be given.
