UK, UIC, OSU, U-M Architecture Students to Explore 'Possible Mediums'

Published: Jan 24, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Jan. 24, 2013) — The University of Kentucky College of Design is co-hosting "Possible Mediums," a consortium conference being presented Feb. 7-10, in Columbus, Ohio. As part of the conference, UK design students will participate in workshops with students and faculty from University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) School of Architecture, Ohio State University (OSU) Knowlton School of Architecture, and University of Michigan (U-M) Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning.

 

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 the workshop leaders' 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.

 

The guest speakers at "Possible Mediums" are Jeffrey Kipnis, an architectural critic, theorist, designer, filmmaker, curator and educator, and John McMorrough, principal architect in the firm studioAPT and chair of the Architecture Program at the U-M Taubman College.

 

Conference workshop leaders include: Ellie Abrons, lecturer in architecture at the U-M's Taubman College; Andrew Atwood, a faculty member at the Southern California Institute of Architecture; Angela Co, assistant professor at the UK School of Architecture; Brennan Buck, a principal at FreelandBuck in New York and a critic at the Yale School of Architecture; Justin Diles, the Howard E. LeFevre Emerging Practitioner Fellow at OSU's Knowlton School; David Freeland, a principal at FreelandBuck; Andrew Holder, architect, critic, author and Willard A. Oberdick Fellow at U-M's Taubman College; Maria Ibañez, owner of IdSR Architecture and partner at Ibañez Kim Studio; Jason Kelly Johnson, founding design partner of Future Cities Lab and assistant professor at California College of the Arts; Thomas Kelley, visiting assistant professor at UIC School of Architecture; Simon Kim, assistant professor at the University of Pennsylvania's School of Design and partner at Ibañez Kim Studio; Jimenez Lai, assistant professor at UIC School of Architecture and leader of Bureau Spectacular; Michael Loverich, co-founder of Bittertang; and Michael Young, educator and founding partner of Young & Ayata.

 

Chairs of the "Possible Mediums" conference are Kristy Balliet, of OSU Knowlton School; Kelly Bair, of UIC School of Architecture; Adam Fure, of U-M’s Taubman College; and Kyle Miller, of UK College of Design.
