LACH1020 THE CULTURE OF NATURE SEMESTER 2, 2019 . In 2009 a Working group was proposed by the International Commission of Stratigraphy to investigate the formal recognition of a unique geological age indicative of lasting and probably irreversible human-caused change on the Earth, its ecosystems, and climate. By 2016 the results of the investigation showed that the Anthropocene was “significant and ‘geologically’ real.” The world, it seems, has become “human, all too human.” . LACH1020, a broadening unit, thinks through the different ways humans “cultivate” nature and their relations to it over time. Drawing on notable examples of landscapes, particularly designed landscapes, lectures broach topical, often controversial, themes with an eco-critical edge. What are the consequences of “building waste” for our inhabitation? If you are interested please contact School of Design Unit Coordinator Joely-Kim Sobott ( @joelykym ): joely-kym.sobott @uwa.edu.au. .

School of Design’s Senior Lecturer and Landscape Architecture Programme Director, Dr Maria Ignatieva, will be involved in several events during the month of June. Maria is one of the keynote speakers at the ICON-LA 2019 Conference on the 7th June in St Petersburg, Russia. This international scientific conference in landscape architecture is devoted to the urban water landscapes in the time of globalisation. The questions which will be discussed range from the influence of densification and related urban problems to water landscapes, consequences of climate change on coastal urban ecosystems, design of sustainable waterfronts, restoration and conservation of urban rivers, lakes, streams and marine ecosystems. Maria will then be in Berlin as an invited guest researcher to Humbolt University Berlin, Department of Geography. Maria will be involved in a number of activities including as an invited lecturer for ‘Landscape Ecology’ students and PhD-researchers and as a member of the Advisory board (expert) and Senior Lecturer for the Berlin summer school on ‘ An interdisciplinary perspective on ecosystem services and human wellbeing’. . Finally, Maria will be speaking at the Nature City Seminar in Perth on Thursday, 27th June where she will be joined by School of Design Landscape Architecture PhD candidates Fahimeh Mofrad ( @fahiii_m ) and Yuki Yang ( @yqyeungz ). . . . . #UWA #schoolofdesign #uwadesign #uwadesignstaff #uwadesignstudents #landscapearchitecture #ICON -LA #stpetersburg #russia #berlin #germany #humboltuniversity #naturecityseminar #ecology #nature #biophilic #mariaignatieva

SymbioticA Friday Seminar Series featuring a talk by our staff member Senior Lecturer Santiago R. Pérez. @srperez01 #repost @symbiotica.lab Public seminar: POSTDIGITAL MATTER(s) Speaker: Santiago R. Perez, The University of Western Australia Location: SymbioticA 31 May 2019 3pm The era of the “PostDigital,” is characterized by the collapse of distinctions between the “newness” of the digital (now banal and ubiquitous) and the nostalgia of the analog. It is also characterized by the opportunistic mining of both domains, towards new hybrid (physical / digital) material practices. PostDigital technologies and practices challenge designers to critically examine the changing conceptions of matter / material, transcending the physical / digital oppositions of an earlier generation. Within this context, the rise of AI, Robotics and related technologies, create both new, speculative opportunities for design, and at the same time, posit the immanent “Loss of Control” of the designer, over Line, Form and Material, and ultimately, Spatiality. This informal lecture will consider the speculative possibilities of new material practices, and the implications of material production in a “PostDigital” era, with selected work including robotic fabrication, material assemblages influenced by bio-structures, and full scale built work. The lecture is presented as a continuation of topics introduced in the “BAY ONE” exhibit at the UWA School of Design, to establish a discourse interrogating the Post Digital. . . . . #UWA #uwadesign #schoolofdesign #architecture #roboticfabrication #uwadesignstaff #art #symbiotica

Countdown to folio! Take a look at these wax model tests in the making by Masters student Rosie McCutcheon ( @rose_ieee ) for her masters studio Plastic Fantastic led by School of Design Lecturer Lara Camilla Pinho ( @laracamillapinho ). Students are focusing on the potential of design-research methods to add value to recycled plastics by using recycled synthetic plastics in the design and development of architectural products to be applied to low-cost, sustainable, and culturally appropriate buildings on the island of Sumbawa, Indonesia, where the plastic waste situation has gained increasing attention in global media in recent years.

Needing some inspiration for final folio? Take a look at these images by Joseph Bean ( @crkd_yth ) for his Masters Level project “Geriatrifying Neopolis”. The project was part of the 2017 Athens studio led by Adjunct Professor Kalliope Kontozoglou and Associate Professor Nigel Westbrook. “The Neopolis elderly may age, but they refuse to rot. They remain revolutionaries, hurling pot plants off balconies to continue the anarchy. A rejection of walled 'lifestyle villages' on the fringes, Geriatrifying Neopolis designs the ageing Greek population into urban action, mobilising them to spur economic growth. The energetic oldies revitalise holes left in the crumbling urban fabric and housing stock - ageing disobediently." . . . . #UWA #schoolofdesign #uwadesign #uwadesignstudents #uwastudents #architecture #crkd_yth #athens #greece #summerstudio #masters #geriatrification #urbanaction
