This lecture and workshop will explore 3D scanning as a process and its potential to drive and change design methods. With an emphasis on Photogrammetry, it gives an introduction to practical scanning methods that can be applied in everyday practice, while speculating on the possibilities of 3D scanning for the discipline at large.
How is contemporary architectural practice shaped by social media and online formats, particularly in times of social distancing? How is it different to create media for print vs. to be used on the web? Starting from these questions, this workshop and discussion will dive into questions of representation and engagement on the web, from self-promotion to political activism.
From the Press Release: For this Critical Distance conference, we have invited four architects, practitioners, and thinkers (Lucia Tahan, FAKT OFFICE, Bika Rebek and Léopold Lambert) whose work goes beyond the built object spectrum and whom are working from different fields creating other narratives for the architectural practice, in order to build some necessary counter-imaginaries for the narrow agenda of the present, and use them to provoke different possible futures.
