Constructing Realities - Carole Collet

14 March 18:30 - 20:30
Organized by: The Bartlett School of Architecture
Venue: , UCL at Here East
Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park
E15 2GW

Researcher and bio-designer Carole Collet discusses the implications of designing with living systems and the new possibilities arising from the field of biodesign.


How do we design when intersecting species? How do we travel scales when exploring biomimetic principles? How do we navigate the hand-made, the man-made and the grow-made to develop innovative design propositions?


This informal lecture series invites speakers to explore the current trends in the making, process and design of our built environment, looking at how new technologies are shaping the future of the spaces around us. Lectures include themes of fabrication, bio-technologies, forensic architecture and a critical look at the algorithms and political uses of architecture and data.


We will hear from artists, architects, designers, scientists and other interdisciplinary practitioners who are at the fore-front of their industry and understand how different disciplines influence and challenge the thinking of other practices.


This series is discursive and offers opportunities for students, academics, industry professionals and the wider public to learn from and question the people who are constructing the realities we inhabit.
