Our annual open house for the Australian Institute of Architects' Dulux Study Tour was today.
A fascinating exchange of ideas and thinking with Kim Bridgland (Edition Office), Leah Gallagher (Kin Architects), Jason Licht (Cumulus Studio), Joseph O’Meara (BVN) and Dirk Yates (Speculative Architecture).
In addition to the regular programme of events and talks, Open City hosted their first ever Live Magazine which we were honoured to be part of.
Chris and artist Amy Sharrocks set out their mission to make the world a wetter, better place. However it was not a plea for more rain, but a call for more access to urban water and the realisation that London’s largest nature asset is actively underused. Through Thames Baths that completely redefines our relationship with the Thames, the Peckham Lido, and the rather glorious Swimmoblie project they are fighting for us to be able to reconnect with the water that feeds our city. Amy wholeheartedly willed us to understand the importance of ‘revelling in the dirty waters of London’ and to appreciate the pure pleasure of making a splash.
We were delighted to welcome Shahira back into the studio. Shahira Fahmy Architects and Studio Octopi collaborated on the concept for the Delfina Foundation.
There was plenty of time to discuss new opportunities in the Middle East and Europe. Watch this space!
