Weather Architecture


Weather Architecture
JONATHAN HILL
23 November, 5.30pm

Design Theatre, NICAI Conference Centre, Building 423, 22 Symonds Street, Auckland Central.

Weather Architecture further extends Jonathan Hill's investigation of authorship by recognising the creativity of the weather. At a time when environmental awareness is of increasing relevance, the overriding aim is to understand a history of architecture as a history of weather and thus to consider the weather as an architectural author that affects design, construction and use in a creative dialogue with other authors such as the architect and user.

Professor Jonathan Hill, Bartlett School of Architecture - University College London
Jonathan Hill is Professor for Architecture and Visual Theory and Director of the MPhil/PhD Design Programme at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London. He studied Architecture at the Architectural Association London, and received a PhD from the University of London.
His research investigates the relations between architectural objects and the practice and experience of architecture. Arguing that user creativity should be a central concern of architectural design, he questions the lines between object and experience, and designer and user. His research combines historical investigations, material studies and design propositions, and results in books, exhibitions and installations
