A Backstage Love Affair, 2017 by Ifigeneia Liangi

An evening exploring how architecture’s use of different media can tell stories that create a sense of meaning in our environment.

Often ignored in contemporary architectural discourse, the act of architectural storytelling is crucial to the building of spaces that convey meaningful messages.

In this event, we will take a closer look at how different narrative media can be used to create new spaces while also altering our understanding of existing ones.

Through discussing how the need to “make space” through storytelling seeps into cinema, art installations, and speculative allegorical architectural projects, we will counteract the idea that modern architecture has lost its ability to embody spatial narratives.

The event will present work from an architect turned filmmaker, an architect who constructed a video game world, and two architectural designers from the Bartlett’s PhD programme who tell stories through architectural drawings, models, and films.

Speakers include:
Ifigeneia Liangi – PhD candidate, architectural designer, illustrator, storyteller
Thandi Loewenson – PhD candidate, architectural designer, venture futurist
Catrina Stewart – architect, architectural designer for BAFTA winning video game Lumino City
Kibwe Tavares – architect, animator and filmmaker; co-founder of Factory Fifteen

Organised in collaboration with the doctoral programme at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL.
