A Day on the Grid

Free event, organised by the PhD Programme
10 May 2013, 10.00am, Architectural Association, Lecture Hall, 36 Bedford Sq, London WC1B 3ES
The grid has a long and prolific history within architecture. It is an indispensable device for the existence of space, being both a model of rationality and a sign of artificiality. This one-day event will address the manifold character of the grid, examining its existence as object, instrument and representation, and extending the discussion from its historical manifestations into contemporary debates.
The day’s event has been organised as a series of nine sessions, each composed by a presentation, a response and questions from the audience. It will end with a discussion between Pier Vittorio Aureli, Mark Campbell and Marina Lathouri.
