Ideas of the kind of 'space' AIO should be
Some feedback from the Tate Modern review event
I'd like curves. No corners. No hard edges.
A creative tool shed. With ideas and thoughts and opinions on how to tackle the simple and not-so-simple issues when designing buildings... a Document M for a more creative accessible future.
An event where the bias is on the side of architects
More interaction, eg. in workplaces outside your field.
Move: Is there an opportunity for AIO to be embedded in a live architecture project?
More photos and coverage of artist David Dixon and John Adams. They're great.
Sometimes it's hard to listen... Sometimes it's hard to take the lead... Could we have a 'taking lead' room? What would happen when we come back together again?
New York City History Museum - develop a project in the same manner. Travel around Europe, explore spaces, buildings, environment - can we improvise or bring them alive?
What they said!
A space to make sound and light. Not just the artists.
Disbaled and Life Limited Children to participate from 'Shooting Star' Hospice, Hampton Middlesex. Collaboration may be possible with them. Not sure about funding. Emily Turner(Rachel Gadsen's neighbour)
Architecture and Art are only two of the broader artistic disciplines. What about involving some of the others - music springs to mind as does theatre...
The next project needs to produce something tangible.
Move out into a real space which is about to be transformed. overwhelm the client with ideas for the space which will transform it, to a truly shared space which inspired all the senses.
Storm the British Museum.
I love to be involved in actually designing a building/space
A white space is accessible. A black space is accessible but is a red space accessible?
I'd like to work in the InQBate space with an architects practice to redesign a specific space from a creative and accessible perspective (and have the idea built)
An intimate room space to work in pairs so the relationship is enhanced.
City planners and developers should get involved. More cash.
The person first, disability later. Think empowerment and that doesn't include patronising behaviour! Good luck - don't be part of the flock!
An ongoing dialogue between artists and architects would facilitate a development n both areas of practise. As an artist I found the whole process really exciting and immigrating being able to collaborate in this way.
I want a cabin with no atmosphere (gravity) for all the people, disabled or not. Thanks, Albert.
Make the architects think outside their box.
Use outside space! It's not all buildings.
It would be good to explore an aspect of Part M, the Building Regulation that is trying to improve the Accessibility and Buildings, by taking one aspect say 'visual contrast' and seeing if it actually helps someone with a visual disability. Then using that dialogue to create an 'anarchic regulation'.
As an architect, I feel we get too caught up with what the regulations say and the minimum requirements... I would like a room where I can throw paint around - free my mind and leave the guide books behind. A room thick with paint thrown all over the walls - all colours - get paint in your hair! Art Spa. Creative Spa.
I would like to see risk taking as the norm in our Art Institutions not as the exception to the rule in heavily curated spaces.
Recreate Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman house with fluid walls.
Create a space that each person who enters the space choose some way to alter their experience of the space. A person could choose to be blind-folded, they could distort their hearing and listen to music/carry extra weight/wear constricting clothing/ whatever comes to mind, the purpose being to do something that affects how they would negotiate or experience the space.
Architecture Inside-Out Fair! Next event on the grass in front of the Tate Modern. -Let's rethink, redraw, paint Building Regs Part M -Artists, Architects, Planners and Public: People will walk up and down southbank, cross the river, walk into the Tate..include the public. Try it on Millennium Bridge.
Accessible means more than ramps and lifts. It's about the person first and the disability last. It's the language, tone etc and not just getting into a building. Think of a person's needs and not about getting them in..then what?
Bring the studies into Action - intervening in inaccessible spaces.
A space to talk through and share ideas and gain an understanding of each others practice. An Opportunity to collaborate on real projects through an organic process.
Could interventions with artists and architects happen more regularly? As part of their training for example (artists and architects). Disabled artists intervening/supporting architects in their formal training, early on.
Email me! firstname.lastname@example.org Offers to link people up to make a practical difference. Let's build a real building together!
Open this up and make it about Everybody! What are the barriers we all face? Who actually really likes steps? Or noise or tiny toilets....? Happy to share research and experiences. email@example.com Oh, and I'd like to find out what this project has changed for the architects and where they get their inspiration from?
Architecture and the construction of utopian cities of the imaginary have historically been linked to wealth and empire building. In the new empires of Dubai and Shanghai, cities are emerging without the artist's leap of faith. Inside-Out might move outward to stimulate the psychological landscape that springs from the artist's imagination.
Making places where people with disabilities can experience things. That their disability does not allow them to experience, ie. have a large space explained to a blind person, or explain noise/space to a deaf person. A building that can do this would be incredible. Richard Turner
Textures of buildings and other senses like sight and sound of materials - babies explore their worlds by putting materials in their mouths...?
Communication - Ideas - Discussion - Debate - Opening Minds - Open relaxing environment to discuss the way in which spaces make us feel.
A room full of architecture students.
