Real or perceived edges help us to locate ourselves in space and place, and define the boundaries of those places across the scales, from regional and urban boundaries to neighbourhoods, buildings, and even our bodies. Sarah Manning’s Space agency is a design and research practice that sits at the edge of different disciplines - urban design, architecture, product and information design.
The practice considers the work they do as the human interface to the built environment. Through this interface, the practice helps people to better read their environment and adds a narrative layer onto architecture. Space agency finds that it is at the edge that we are able to push the boundaries of what architecture is and to expand the boundaries of our knowledge and practice.
This presentation is equivalent to 1 hour/point of formal CPD and will deliver outcomes related to the following Competency/s from the National Standard of Competency for Architects:
Design: Conceptual Design
3.5 Exploration and application of ordering, sequencing and modelling of three dimensional form and spatial content
3.8 Application of manual and digital graphic techniques and modelling to describe three dimensional form and spatial relationships.
Project Initiation and Conceptual Design:
PC 18 Be able to apply creative imagination, design precedents, research, emergent knowledge and critical evaluation in formulating and refining concept design options, including the exploration of three dimensional form and spatial quality.
PC 34 Communicate conceptual design proposals and associated information to client, stakeholders and communities using appropriate and culturally responsive methods appropriate to different audiences.
