Are you interested to challenge the AA community with a visceral sharing of your work in progress? Are you willing to experience your current uncompleted work and thinking pushed and pulled in different directions? 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 the forthcoming RICOCHET series – organised by John Andrews and Maria Theodorou – which begins on Tuesday 14 November 2017.
The RICOCHET series is a platform for AA Members & 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 the RICOCHET series, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by 4 September 2017 . Your e-mail should include the following information:
+ Personal information: Name, Surname, and AA membership number (if known)
+ 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)
+ Biography (up to 100 words, indicating your relationship to the AA, e.g. Member, alumna/us etc.)
Please submit one proposal only and keep the following dates in your diary:
Proposal submission deadline: 4 September 2017
Notification to successful proposals: 22 September 2017
RICOCHET ONE: 14 November 2017
We look forward to receiving your proposals. Please note that you will need to cover your own expenses to come at the AA for the RICOCHET discussion, which will be video recorded and broadcast at a later date.
