Architects Bursaries Available

There is an opportunity for five architects to join artists involved in the Birmingham Building Schools for the Future programme as part of Learning Spaces Living Places 2. We will be running ‘Interactive Architecture’ on the 5th July in Birmingham and can offer 5 bursaries of £200 to architects who are interested in exploring artistic collaboration and interactive technologies in their practice.

An introduction to designing Interactive Architecture, with Ruairi Glynn, will look at state of the art practice, and give an overview of typical sensing and actuation technologies used, and the methods for architects, artist and designers to develop interactive proposals. 

Ruairi is an Installation Artist, a Curator and Writer. He teaches between the disciplines of Architecture & Interaction Design at the Bartlett, University College London & Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London. Ruairi has exhibited internationally, most recently in Los Angeles, London, Seoul, New York, Sao Paulo, Vienna and Madrid. He has also organised the recent Digital Architecture London 2009 and Fabricate 2011 conferences and is currently planning Digital Architecture New York for 2012. Ruairi is the co-author of Digital Architecture: Passages Through Hinterlands and co-editor of Fabricate: Making Digital Architecture and writes semi-regularily on his blog
