The UTS Architecture School is hosting the prestigious the 2012 Interstices Symposium November 28-30. Interstices is known as one of the most influential architecture journals worldwide  alongside Harvard Design Magazine, Columbia University’s Grey Room and the AA Files.

Under the topic Immaterial Materialities: Materiality and Interactivity in Art and Architecture, Conference convenor Sandra Karina Loschke is welcoming  a host of international speakers from the Bartlett/UCL, California College of the Arts, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Technical University of Vienna, Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design London, Université Laval/Canada, HS Wismar/Germany  and University of Auckland as well as our very own speakers from UTS  and RMIT, USyd, UNSW, UC and UQ amongst others.

Two of Europe’s leading architectural theorists will be delivering keynotes at the Australian Institute of Architects and the Museum of Contemporary Art (Sydney):

Professor Philip Ursprung, UTS Distinguished Visiting Scholar and Professor for the History of Art and Architecture, ETH Zürich will be exploring the interface between art and architecture looking at the work of Olafur Eliasson, Peter Zumthor and Herzog de Meuron.
Date: 29 November, 6pm, MCA Auditorium.

Professor Jonathan Hill, Professor for Architecture and Visual Theory at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London, will analyse the  weather’s effects on the design and experience of specific buildings and gardens. He interweaves these case studies with a historical survey of changing attitudes to the weather in the arts, sciences and society, leading to a critical re-evaluation of contemporary responses to climate change.
