Edge: Border

04 November 09:00 - 17:30
Organized by: UCL Urban Laboratory / Folkestone Triennial 2017
Venue: , Quarterhouse
49 Tontine Street
CT20 1BN

Friedrich Ludewig (Director, ACME) is the keynote speaker on the final day of EDGE - a series of three events presented as part of Folkestone Triennial 2017, exploring the concept of situated practice in contemporary art, architecture and urbanism. 


Bringing together practitioners and thinkers at three 'edge' locations connected by the High Speed 1 railway, participants will respond to the sensory, social and environmental impact of their individual approaches, and together generate a narrative exploration of the creative use of interstitial spaces.


For the third and final event, we consider Folkestone. At the littoral edge of southeast England, its urbanism connect equally with water and land. From 1842 to 1992 it was the main pivot for passenger transport between France and England, and with the more recent construction of HS1, Folkestone has been gifted the status of dormitory suburb to the Capital.


Keynote: Friedrich Ludewig

Other speakers: Lewis Biggs, Lesley Hardy, Darrell Rohl, The Decorators, Diane Dever, Stroom, Charles Quick, Jonathan Ward, JJ Charlesworth, Princess Marilyn Douala Manga Bell, Sorcha Carey and Anthony Downey.
