Digital Relations in Architecture

A PhD Symposium organized by CITA to investigate the impacts & challenges of digital technologies on the way we build and understand space.

I have been part of the organization and I can't wait to present my work in such a context where 17 PhD from three research centres concerned with IT & Architecture: SIAL (Australia), Bartlett (Uk) and CITA (Dk) will be gathered in dialogue with key researchers in the field including, among others, Mark & Jane Burry, Mette Ramsgaard Thomsen or Sean Hanna.

Call for embroiders

We're just embarking on an exciting project and are in search of keenembroiderers. Amit Rastogi of RCKC (the sari firm which is now a partner in the British Sari Story and Stitch) is planning a unique catwalk collection by one of his designers. It will be a collection with a difference - designed in India and embroidered in the UK i.e. completely the reverse of the usual run of things.

This is a first step in our plans to try and regenerate an embroidery industry in this country to supply samples for designers - giving (hopefully!) some of the people who have contributed or taken part in Stitch and the British Sari Story the chance to develop and use their skills. So I am spreading the word to anyone who might be interested: please email me. If you like to embroider and think you could contribute, please do think about coming on board. Geographical location doesn't matter too much -we can sort out logistics.

Initially it will be a question of getting a sample of your work to Amit, so he can start to put together a team. Look forward to hearing from you
