EC17 is Over… To Be Continued….

We are happy to close the September reverberations and therefore this year so successfully! // EC 2017 je za náma! Projděte si záříjové dozvuky 🙂

We started with an excellent workshop by Linda Blaasvær on GIGA-Mapping interests, engagements and visions within the community. The workshop was very successful and engaged more members of the community into the action and speculations on their future development.

‘Who We Are / Who Are We’ workshop by Linda Blaasvær (photo: Carrithers 2017)

We very much enjoyed to join the European Heritage Days by our Sunday lectures on studies of Norwegian and Czech traditional architectures. Namely on semi-interior spaces in extreme climates that invites for eco-systemic interaction across biotic and abiotic agents. And the history of Czech settlements based on environmental conditions and the development of the oldest human co-living with other species in Czechia, bee keeping. We ended the session with our precious dancer Jana Vrána’s contemporary dance performance called: Biological Co-Dance making the event spectacular.

The Sunday was pretty awesome. We started with VR game by Keteřina Horák Goryczka and Jan Horák, mapping our area with bumble bee until you reach its hotel. Than we continued in a serious way with our most precious guest, Birger Sevaldson, discussing Systems Oriented Design in relation  to Environmental Business and Democracy. Birger took us through solid theoretical background to argue for public activism and consciousness. You can download his brilliant lecture hare:Designing for Environment Business and Democracy Contradictions and Synergies

To look back after July’s reverberations, the events were on human-environmental interactions, joining today digital technologies with eco-systemic environment. We opened the reverberations and Šimon Prokop used environmental sound data for music generation. Ben James created VR app for environmental development speculations. And Karolína Kotnourová generated interactive bat mapping from ultra-sound recordings.

SAAP Was Supported by EEA Grants!

ehp-norske-fondy_logo-ehp-barva

We are very glad to announce our new initiative among FUA TUL and AHO that was supported by EEA Grants!

Naše nová iniciativa mezi FUA TUL a AHO byla podpořena EHP Fondy!

This initiative is focused on awareness and in-depth knowledge in the field of biodiversity and ecosystemic services.  The community multi-genre festival EnviroCity and its reverberations that serves to support monitoring and analysis of the local biotope, will engage general public as well as professional audience of wider range of types. There will be also performed study on mapping svalgangs, the semi-interior space of Norwegian traditional architecture, for monitoring and adaptation to climate change and an article about it will be sent to reviewing process. The study will be presented at festival EnviroCity’s reverberations. This will support the development of the study. The initiative is than to support all fields of the call of the program: Biodiversity and ecosystemic services, Monitoring and integrated planning, Climate change adaptation and its popularisation.

The iniciative Systemic Approach to Architectural Performance (SAAP) is a continuation of the project with the same name (Davidová, 2016a, 2016b) that was supported last year within CZ07 – Scholarship Programme and Bilateral Scholarship Programme by EEA and Norway Grants. This project resulted in a fusion of process-based fields formally initiated by integration of Systems Oriented Design (SOD) (Sevaldson, 2013) and Performance Oriented Architecture (POA) (Hensel, 2015) and was ratified as its own design field. The fields have been founded and developed at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design and therefore there is better experience in the area. SAAP develops methodology and generates theory through experimental practice. This initiative will develop this concept further through common collaborative public events and actions and in depth expert study and thus will support publicity of biodiversity and ecosystemic services in the Czech Republic and its settlements adaptation to climate change.

The initiative is to support community transdisciplinary activity for supporting bio-top at Nusle Stairs within Prague city centre (Davidová, 2017). The activity is to generate biodiversity within the location and through co-design and public events to support eco-systemic co-living and public understanding and pride of being part of such system. The public events, covered by EnviroCity festival (Davidová & Kernová, 2016; Kernová, 2014) will generate research studies and future co-design themselves. Invited presenters have to relate to the bio-top project and have to interpret it through their profession and art-performance-design-research-science field. Since the initiative is long lasting Time Based Eco-Systemic Co-Design, EnviroCity will have a strong effect on local built environment development.

Through study trips for traditional architecture research in more extreme locations, the field investigation will be extended towards architectural adaptation to climate change as weather extremes are expected in our locations (Czech Republic Ministry of the Environment & Czech Hydrometeorological Institute, 2015; Flæte et al., 2010). These studies will map eco-systemic interaction of semi-interior spaces called svalgangs, the spaces between exterior and interior. Please, see RSD5 paper, related to this topic (Davidová, 2016a). Through the combination of soft and hard data from digital devices, cameras but also personal experience expressions, the study will cover the options for adaptation to the extremes approaching Czech Republic in broader complexity.

Festival EnviroCity with its reverberations and svalgangs mapping are tightly interconnected when one activity supports the other through its events. Both together are to support ecosystemic adaptation to climate change, when we will through non-anthropocentric architecture (Hensel, 2015) interact with other species through spaces, that are neither interior nor exterior, or through actions in public space.

 

Iniciativa se zaměřuje na rozšíření povědomí a prohloubení vědomostí v oblasti biodiverzita a ekosystémové služby. V zásadě komunitní, multi-žánrový festival EnviroCity a jeho dozvuky sloužící k podpoře, monitorování a analýze místního biotopu bude pracovat s odbornou i laickou veřejností širšího spektra. Bude také zhotovena studie Mapování svalgangů, mezi-interiérových prostorů norské tradiční architektury, k monitorování a adaptaci na změnu klimatu, kterou v rámci iniciativy jako článek zašleme do recenzního řízení. Tato aktivita bude také prezentována na dozvucích festivalu EnviroCity, což pomůže v jejím vývoji. Iniciativa tedy přispěje k přímé akci ve všech oblastech programu CZ02: Biodiverzita a ekosystémové služby, Monitorování a integrované plánování a kontrola v životním prostředí, Adaptace na změnu klimatu a v jejich popularizaci.

Systemic Approach to Architectural Performance (SAAP) (Davidová, 2016b, 2016c)  navazuje na stejnojmenný projekt, podpořený loni programem CZ07. Výsledkem byla fúze procesy orientovaných směrů, formálně iniciovaná integrací směrů Systems Oriented Design (SOD) (Sevaldson, 2013) a Performance Oriented Architecture (POA) (Hensel, 2015). To vrcholí časově založeným Eko-Systemickým Co-Designem, který zahrnuje biotické i abiotické účastníky, včetně lidí. Iniciativa se bude vyvíjet s našimi norskými partnery, protože tyto směry byly a jsou právě na Oslo School of Architecture and Design založeny a vyvíjeny a mají bohatší zkušenosti než my. Tento koncept skrze další společné veřejné události a akce, odbornou, do hloubky vypracovanou, studii, se zasadí o rozvinutí a propagaci biodiverzity a ekosystémických služeb v České Republice a její adaptaci na změnu klimatu v rámci sídel.

V rámci iniciativy bude propagována komunitní, transdisciplinární aktivita pro podporu biotopu na Nuselských Schodech v Praze (Davidová, 2017), která má za cíl vytvořit biologickou rozmanitost v lokalitě a prostřednictvím co-designu. Skrze veřejné akce chceme podpořit eko-systemické spolužití, veřejné porozumění a hrdosti bytí součástí eko-systému obyvatel prostřednictvím festivalu EnviroCity. Veřejné aktivity festivalu EnviroCity (Davidová & Kernová, 2016; Kernová, 2014) budou generovat jak publicitu, tak výzkumné studie a budoucí co-design samy o sobě. Pozvaní vystupující se musejí vztáhnout k studii bio-topu prostřednictvím své profese: uměním, performancí, designem, výzkumem či vědou. Vzhledem k tomu, že aktivita je dlouhotrvající časově založený, eko-systemický co-design, EnviroCity bude mít silný vliv na místní vývoj městské krajiny.

Prostřednictvím analýzy svalgangů, zaměřené na výzkum tradiční architektury extrémnějších klimat v Norsku, bude pole rozšířeno směrem k architektonické adaptaci na změnu klimatu v ČR, protože právě tyto extrémy, na které naše architektura nemá odpověď, nyní přívalech zažíváme v ČR. Tyto studie zmapují ekologicky systémové interakce mezi-interiérových, neklimatizovaných prostorů mezi exteriérem a interiérem, blíže článek pro RSD5 (Davidová, 2016a). Kombinací měkkých a tvrdých dat z přístrojů, fotografií i expresí pocitů komplexně obsáhneme možnosti k adaptaci na extrémy přicházející do ČR.

Festival EnviroCity a jeho dozvuky a mapování svalgangů jsou aktivně propojeny, jedna aktivita podporuje druhou skrze své akce pro interakci s laickou i odbornou veřejností. Obě dohromady pak přispějí k ekosystemické adaptaci na změnu klimatu, kdy skrze neantropocentrickou architekturu (Hensel, 2015) budeme interagovat s ostatními druhy skrze prostory, které nejsou ani interiér ani exteriér, či přímé akce ve veřejném prostoru.

GIGA-Mapping New Coming Cultures in Tunis

Last week, Marie Davidová held a GIGA-Mapping workshop on appreciation of new coming cultures through their culture and invited lecture on Systemic Approach to Architectural Performance at RAID conference focused on post digital age at Ecole Superieur des Sciences et TEchnologie du Design (المدرسة العليا لعلوم وتكنولوجيات التصميم) in Tunis, Tunisia. In the 2,5 hours transdisciplinary workshop, we mapped the impacts of cultural exchange across the world. The result is a field map with registering impacts and their interpretations. The lecture was introducing the new design field as a fusion of process-based fields into Time Based Eco-Systemic Co-Design that involves both, biotic and abiotic agents, including humans.

Workshop Participants: Selmi Chauna, Khenissi Miriam, Hajji Moez, Merwa Kachoukh

Ten days ago, we launched the hard-cover publication Wood as a Primary Medium to Architectural Performance. Since today, you can download it on Research Gate. Have a good read!

/Stáhněte si Wood as a Primary Medium to Architectural Performance na Research Gate!

From the book/z knihy:

The present research considers wood as a study material for a wider question
on architecture’s environmental interaction. It aims to explore its potential for architectural performance and atmospheres as well as to broaden the discussion on this problem area by accessing the public space. My project researches such interactions through practical experiments as well as theoretical reflections, including examinations of other scientific, artistic and crafts disciplines and honestly discusses both the successes as well as the failures and weak points to develop a strong background for architectural and urban design practice.
The methodology Research by Design while full scale prototyping is covered by the Systems Oriented Design to interpret and develop complex environmental relations.
This is an article based thesis, where the texts of the articles have not been changed
and serve as an addendum covered with an exegesis. Most of the repeating images were
removed from the articles. If there is an exception this is reasoned through its important
relation to the present text.
All the substantial contributions are mentioned within the text and/or summarized in
the Thanks section. To mention the main institutions and practice/NGO’s respectively,
this research has been developed at the Faculty of Art and Architecture at the Technical
