Woodbury faculty recently attended Critical Practice in an Age of Complexity, a conference at the University of Arizona School of Architecture. The conference explored whether in today’s increasingly complex world, practice can be ‘critical’ and with the underlying premise that a major barrier to critical practice in any discipline is singular thinking. The conference was attended by faculty members Dr. Marc J. Neveu, Dr. Jason Rebillot, Christoph Korner, Jeanine Centuori, and Dr. Nicole Keating.
The conference focused on the design and understanding of the built environment in the middle of complexity and contradiction through reflection and vision. It explored critique and multiple practices as two major themes.
Christoph Korner presented Architecture Activism, Jason Rebillot presented Seceding to Survive: The Ecologic of AVL-Ville, Marc J. Neveu submitted a paper, and Jeanine Centuori and Nicole Keating screened “We Can Build On This” a documentary about a design-build studio. The event formed part of the AMPS led research programme PARADE (Publication & Research in Art, Architectures, Design and Environments). You can find out more about the conference here.
