Interested to challenge the AA community with a visceral sharing of your work in progress on architecture, design, writing, models, videos or work that defies classification? Are you willing to experience your current uncompleted work and thinking pushed and pulled in directions alluded in it but still unaccounted for? Are you ‘bored’ by the architecture crit ritual and seek the excitement of an embodied architecture exchange? If yes, it’s time to answer the RICOCHET call.
AA Members and alumni are invited to submit proposals for RICOCHET 2 scheduled for 28 February 2018. The RICOCHET series, organised by John Andrews and Maria Theodorou, is a platform for AA Members and alumni to bring works in progress to the school to be put under scrutiny by students and colleagues. Intended as an intensive discussion and exchange of ideas, RICOCHET will assemble the AA’s bodies, humours and brains to exercise in the immersive environment of architectural gymnastics.
To submit your interest to discuss your work in progress at RICOCHET 2, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by 19 January 2018. Your e-mail should include the following information:
1. Personal information: Name, surname, title (Dr, Ms, Mrs etc.), your e-mail address and AA Membership number (if known)
2. Proposal: A brief description of the work in progress you would like to discuss, which should contain your proposal’s title, a text (up to 300 words) and visuals (up to 3 images, or a link to a short video)
3. Your brief biography (up to 100 words – please indicate your relationship to the AA e.g. Member, alumna/us)
Please submit one proposal only and keep the following dates in your diary:
+ Submission of interest deadline: 19 January 2018
+ Notification to successful proposals: 31 January 2018
+ RICOCHET 2 event: 28 February 2018
We look forward to receiving your proposals and keep in mind you need to cater for your own expenses to come at the AA for the RICOCHET discussion, which will be recorded and broadcast at a later date.
