Transient Social Environments: Temporary Urban and Interior Interventions

11 Mar 2017 – 10am to 5pm


Banqueting Suite, Chelsea College of Arts

16 John Islip Street, London


The symposium explores transient environments within both urban and interior situations, with a focus on how such design interventions engender social agency. While much pop-up and mobile architecture has become fetishised as form-making, the event will question how the organisational infrastructure of such temporary interventions might facilitate a more lasting legacy in terms of the kind of participatory social structures they instigate.

This event coincides with a structure installed by Interior Spatial Design students in the Rootstein Hopkins Parade Ground at Chelsea College of Arts. The symposium is convened by the Spaces & Narrations Research Group working with practitioners-in-residence Wayward, and presented by Camberwell, Chelsea, Wimbledon Graduate School Public Programme.

 Full program to be announced. Booking available from February 2017.
