The design studios will explore the Sublime Object In Motion as a supple body that effects and is affected by change. Using London as an experimental laboratory of effects, participants will investigate relationships and strategies; speeds and resistances; abstractions and materialities; the lurid and the tame – all at scales stretchng from the nano to the macro. When does an object become an environment or when does a city become an object? The summer studios, which are similar to the AA’s unit system, offer diverse design projects. Participants will dedicate themselves to specific agendas, techniques and results in an intensive and intimate environment. The aim is to engage participants in a collective effort to progress and expand formal and intellectual resources of research, innovation, and new methods of design.
