Architecture in the Space of Flows

Conference organised by
Culture Lab & School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape, Newcastle University

buildings - spaces - cultures

Flows of energy, libido, capital, water and information make our lives possible. The buildings and spaces that support our activities inflect the flows; we tap into them, surf them, block them at our peril, or we may be excluded from them. Flows are global, but have local effects. Buildings are local, but their embodied energies flow from great distances, and their embodiments can cause local or distant turbulences. Everything is moving, intensifying, dispersing; growing, decaying, proliferating, networking, sedimenting, eroding. Understanding ourselves, our buildings, our cities as modulators of flows represents a fundamental shift in sensibility away from the perfect Euclidian geometries of Vitruvian man, to the productive consumer, the desiring subject. Cultures and spaces are fluid and relational, and designers are searching for ways to give expression to these telluric undercurrents that are shaping and re-shaping our worlds. New sensibilities are taking shape, and it is the aim of this conference to explore and gain understanding of emergent possibilities. The conference, or confluence, will be transdisciplinary, bringing together people who are developing ways of thinking about places and our responses to them, making use of ideas of flux.
