THE PRODUCTIVE CONTEXT IN THE ACADEMIC ACTIVITY
Multimedia Workshop performed at the Faculty of Architecture of Barcelona as part of the Master Laboratory of Housing in the XXI. Century.
The workshop had as objective in the first part to develop perceptive levels of interaction between operator and context (to activate the “architect sensors”). The used productions and communication strategies showed the relationship between architecture and multimedia in the production of identifying processes as initial points of social processes and collective integration. The second part of the workshop introduced the concept of generative randomness and the lack of intention in the specific production (redefine the role of architecture in a cultural frame). Applying the thesis that architecture has to be understood as a former of society, some operational instruments to produce complex processes in the productive interaction of reading, birth and development of the city models, were developed. The ubication among the intentional protagonism, the casual moderation and the objectivable laboratory were the base of the work realized for a typologic project of living and context.
All the works presented at the first Warm Up (The multiple creative eyes), urban individual work (The apropriation and the place) and of the Brief Project Development (Operative Randomness), showed a high degree of conceptual and disciplinary synthesis. The group interaction during the process and the multiple theoretical crossings as well as internal and external critics allowed an interesting multicultural relation.
