AIA UK Building Tour

The AIA UK Chapter cordially invites you to the next in our ongoing series of building tours:

81-87 Weston Street, London By Allford Hall Monaghan Morris

Client: Solidspace

Post-Tour Discussion to follow.

Allford Hall Monaghan Morris recently completed the Weston Street residential project located in the heart of Bermondsey, south London. The buildings’ stepped massing is a response to the differing neighbourhood scales, while the brickwork façade and metal windows reference the warehouse aesthetic of the city. The product of a close collaboration between AHMM and developer Solidspace, the scheme provides eight split level apartments and an open-plan office space to the ground floor. The apartments’ open-plan arrangement of living, kitchen and study space across three levels creates a complex play of interlocking units. Amenity space is provided by large cantilevered balconies and roof terraces. The project was awarded the WAF Future Project Residential 2016

Meeting Point: Guy Street Park (SE1 3SH) just south of the project.

1.5 CES Credit (minimum) is available and places are limited.

Tickets are £3 / £5 for members/non-members, and all proceeds benefit the Noel Hill Travel Bursary.

AIA UK Film Night - 'Helvetica'

Its content consists of a history of the typeface interspersed with candid interviews with leading graphic and type designers. The film aims to show Helvetica's beauty and ubiquity, and illuminate the personalities that are behind typefaces. It also explores the rift between modernists and postmodernists, with the latter expressing and explaining their criticisms of the famous typeface.

AIA UK Film Night: 'Frei Otto: Spanning The Future '

The AIA UK inaugural movie of the 2018 movie series is ‘Frei Otto: Spanning The Future,' by Simon K. Chiu.

This is a documentary about the incredible life and work of Frei Otto. As an architect and engineer he laid the foundation for contemporary lightweight architecture, and his ideas are still awe inspiring, decades after he revealed them. This fact was cemented when he was named the 2015 Laureate of Pritzker Architecture Prize.

In one of the final interviews given before his passing, Frei Otto tells how coming of age in the years surrounding WWII influenced his work in tensile architecture. Along with Buckminster “Bucky” Fuller, Walter Gropius, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Richard Neutra, Frei Otto was a visionary. His approach to form finding to solve structural as well as social problems is the foundation for modern architecture.

Late Payment - Is the Construction Act fit for purpose?

Join us for a webinar on 10 January - 12:30 to 13:30.

REGISTER NOW

Non-payment remains one of the biggest issues in the construction industry, with sums continuing to remain unpaid for significant periods on no proper basis and without proper notice. This is an industry wide issue.

The Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 (“Construction Act”) has helped reduce the issue to some extent, and some recent case law has outlined how the Construction Act can be used to your advantage.

Nevertheless, we often hear of sharp practice being used to circumvent the Construction Act and the UK government has acknowledged that more needs to be done, as evidenced by the introduction of the Reporting on Payment Practices and Procedures Regulations 2017.  In addition the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy is now consulting on the 2011 changes to the Construction Act and the use of retentions.

As part of our ongoing series of webinars on construction law, in this webinar we will consider:

1. the 2011 changes to the Construction Act;
2. key recent case law in relation to the Construction Act including adjudication enforcement;
3. whether in practice the Construction Act is fit for purpose; and
4. recent and prospective legislation in relation to late payment.

We would be delighted if you are able to join us.

10 January 2018

AIA CE & IR Conference Prague 20/20 - 5-9 October 2017

to Oct 9

AIA CE & IR Conference Prague 20/20 - 5-9 October 2017

JOINT THIRD ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE AND CHAPTER MEETING

5-9 October, 2017

Prague, Czech Republic

Event space is limited. Registration opens in summer, 2017.

AIA Continental Europe offers approved AIA CES continuing education.

www.aiaeurope.org

www.aiainternational.org

The name of this conference, Prague 20/20, has a double meaning. The first is that in 2017 it will have been twenty years since AIA Europe last hosted a conference in Prague. The second is a hind sight. In this case we will be looking back at what has developed in Prague over the last 20 years, while also re-visiting the cherished historic sites.

An introduction to the history of Prague from the Holy Roman Emperor Karl IV to the Second World War will provide the context for understanding the city’s latest developments. The overview will be presented in lecture format and walking tours of Old Prague – the Charles Bridge, Wallenstein Palace, The Prague Castel, churches, synagogues and the Municipal House.

The conference will then focus on the newest urban developments that have taken shape around the Soviet-built metro lines, originally built to bring people from Prague city center to the socialist housing blocks. Today, many new projects have formed around these important transit hubs. Prague 20/20 will be the first joint conference between AIA Europe and AIA International Region, bringing together a diverse AIA membership from around the globe. A wealth of knowledge about architecture and urbanism through the particulars of this European city will be shared. Prague 20/20 is planned to coincide with Prague Architecture Week, providing attendees with many more opportunities to see and learn about contemporary architecture and design during their visit. We hope to see you there.

AIA UK 2017 Bike Tour - Kent & the Low Weald

TOUR SUMMARY:

This year’s bicycle tour will take us from Headcorn in Kent though to Appledore and further onwards to Folkestone for the more adventurous. We are looking forward to taking in the quintessential English countryside with timber-framed houses, medieval churches, and distinctive rural villages. The tour will be led by Architect and Architectural Historian Benedict O’Looney who will encourage us to take the time to sketch. In addition to sketchbooks, he recommends bringing watercolours, brushes, and ink wash. Watercolour post card pads are a great option when travelling by bike.
 
The plan is to meet at Charing Cross Station by 10:30 am. We will DEPART on the 10:40am train. this train can also be joined at London Bridge Station a few minutes later. (Head for the front coach to meet the group). Return from Appledore approximately 5-6pm. Later return from Folkestone.
 
Further details will be sent to participants in advance. Each participant needs to bring their own bicycle and helmet.

No bike? No problem!

For bicycle rental for the day from a company with reasonable rates we recommend a company like GoPedal. Our path is reasonably flat so a 3-speed should be fine. Other bike hire companies are available.

FULL DETAILS:

A relaxing and informative day-long bicycle tour looking at exceptional rural timber framed architecture in the low Weald of Kent. The plan is to meet at Charing Cross Station by 10:30 am. We will DEPART on the 10:40am train. this train can also be joined at London Bridge Station a few minutes later. (Head for the front coach to meet the group).

We begin in Headcorn where we will see the famous 'Headcorn Manor' beside the church. We will then head to the pretty village of Smarden for lunch. The afternoon leg of the journey heads south to Woodchurch and Appledore on the north edge of the Romney Marsh for about 5pm. People can take the train home from there via Ashford.

Keen cyclists might enjoy an additional cycle run, following this, across the Romney Marsh to the sea at Hythe Bay and the car-free bike route on the sea wall east to Folkestone Station.

Bring warm clothes just in case, sketchbooks pens and brushes for ink wash studies of the old houses we will encounter.

For train tickets ask for a return to Appledore or Folkestone, which are probably about the same price. SouthEastern offers a helpful 'group save' 1/3rd off discount, for groups of three or more, so consider asking for this at the ticket office at Charing Cross.

Bartlett School of Architecture - 22 Gordon Street

By Hawkins\Brown

Post-Tour Discussion Drinks sponsored by Armstrong Ceiling Solutions

Meeting Point: Ground Floor Reception Area. Arrive early to view the Summer Show before the tour.

Hawkins\Brown completely overhauled the school's former Wates House campus to create the new 8,500-square-metre building, to accommodate 1,000 staff and students.This more than doubles the building's original capacity of 380 students and 90 staff when it first opened 40 years ago.

Renamed 22 Gordon Street, the building is the first major project of Transforming UCL, a decade-long programme of improvements to the university's Bloomsbury campus. Hawkins\Brown carried out a "deep retrofit" of the original building, using the original concrete framework but completely reconfiguring the interior and adding two extra levels to take the height to six storeys. The studio also added a full-height extension to the south of the existing building and faced the whole structure in grey brick.

The Bartlett School of Architecture will be hosting their Summer Show of over 650 students exhibiting a range of inventive, creative and visual work including models, drawings, films, multimedia installations and digital fabrications. This will be the first Summer Show to take advantage of the new spaces in the refurbished building.

1.5 CES Credit (minimum) is available and places are limited.

Through an impressive gallery of portraits, the film draws an intimate human map of the place, breathing life into this harsh district and questioning the durability of this utopia from the '50s.

AIA UK Building Tour - Thursday 18 May

Newport Street Gallery is the realisation of Damien Hirst’s long-term ambition to share his art collection with the public. Caruso St John Architects and Max Fordham LLP worked withHirst, one of Britain’s most famous artists, to deliver his flagship gallery in Vauxhall, London. It was the winner of the RIBA Stirling Prize 2016.

Consisting of both new-build and listed refurbished blocks, the gallery lies unassumingly across from elevated railway arches. The building includes contemporary art galleries, a viewing room, offices, workshops, a restaurant and ancillary technical areas. The site is adjacent to an extremely busy elevated railway, therefore the acoustic design included significant sound insulation to the main spaces, proving an important feature to the relatively isolated and quiet ambiance desired for the galleries. With sculptures as heavy as 40 tonnes installed, scale was a vital consideration in the brief. The result is a gallery that is subtle, innovative, and harmonious.

Architects from Caruso St John and engineers from Max Fordham LLP will lead the tour and explain how they worked together to incorporate the services into the architecture

When:     Thursday 18th May 2017 at 6:30pm
