The Building Centre

Prototyping Architecture Conference

Thu 21 Feb '13 - Sat 23 Feb '13




The Building Centre
26 Store Street
London WC1E 7BT




The Prototyping Architecture conference brings together an international community of designers, manufacturers and researchers extending the boundaries of high quality contemporary architecture - performative architecture that is inventive, purposeful and beautiful. Prototyping Architecture places a particular emphasis on research and experimentation showing how trial assemblies can inform architecture. In post-digital design practice the prototype remains a vital means of design development.

The conference will also set out potential systems and material futures, with the potential of technology transfer from other industries. It highlights the role of low carbon architecture and offsite manufacturing to maximise the effective use of materials and resources whilst delivering environments that facilitate human well-being.

This 3-day event coincides with The Building Centre’s Prototyping Architecture exhibition produced by the University of Nottingham which displays a range of examples of architectural prototypes from the speculative to the specific.

Keynote Speakers:
James Timberlake, Kieran Timberlake Architects
Philip Beesley, Philip Beesley Architect Inc., and University of Waterloo
Mark White, Jaguar Land Rover
