Today our experience of the world is being filtered through digital means and Architecture is no different.

We absorb copious amounts of space through the lenses of our iris’, which as a result, has fast-forwarded our dreams into an electric new world. From the filters on social media, spatial computing, decisions made on speculation, we live in a time where we are no longer can tell the difference between physically built objects to virtually rendered landscapes, and because of this, our understanding of environment needs to change fundamentally.

New Paper sets out to explore and question the realms where Architecture is not just physically constructed anymore. We will move into the blurring of the virtual world within our day-to-day lives; Architectural drawings will move beyond mere representations but will become lived-in experiences through dramatisation and gamification. We intend to re-think Architecture through the focus of today’s culture and will share our bold visions of what is to come next.

This elective subject (12.5pt) is a two-week intensive design studio from 1st to 12th July 2019. The individual unit will be run by visiting staff from the Architectural Association, School of Architecture UK as well as teaching staff from MSD. The subject introduces students to contemporary digital design techniques, toolset and workflow, striving for innovation in design resolution. Design briefs are wide ranging from urbanism intervention to 1:1 material systems. The studio runs a unique vertical system and is supported by a public programme of seminars, lectures, design reviews and exhibition of outcome.
