PUBLIC WORKS AT PLANNING THE UNPLANNED - VIENNA


13th VENICE ARCHITECTURE BIENNALE - BRITISH PAVILION


Public works in collaboration with Urban Projects Bureau and Owen Pritchard are one of the ten UK practices in the British Pavilion.

OPENS WEDNESDAY 29th AUGUST - SUNDAY 25th NOVEMBER

Open Charter

is a proposal for a new platform for discussion and engagement for the architecture profession and those
involved with it to clarify, critique and act upon critical issues determining the role of the architect and
their identity - a catalyst for positive change.
The project was conceived within the widespread expression of confusion and fear in the UK surrounding
the future of architecture as a profession, and a desire to reaffirm the qualities that are so vital to the
continued progress of society and the architect as a valuable agent in the world.
We gathered responses from people around the world about what they feel an architect is and does, and
how they feel they can contribute to society.
This multitude of voices has been collected when searching for the image of the architect around the world.
They reveal a personal perspective about the architect, of the professional and its role in society.
Please add your thoughts to the collection:  www.open-charter.net


MUD PLAYGROUND FOR ST MATTHEWS SCHOOL CAMBRIDGE


Public works are designing the playground for St Matthews school in Cambridge as part of the project MUD in collaboration with 30 Bird.
The stories that have created the designs have come from the kids from the school, ex-pupils and staff in play setups we did with them. The playground becomes a new typology between a playground and a site for performance and a space that outside school hours can open up to the wider community as a pleasure garden.

NATIONAL TURNING POINT SUMMIT

public works is part of the discussion on alternative exonomies at the National Turning Point Summit at City Hall  on the 10th of May 2012. Extra tickets have just been released due to high demand.

Hosted by the Greater London Authority at City Hall, London this event promises to be an exciting event with a range of debates both timely and relevant to the sector. This event is open to Network members, visual arts networks and people interested in knowing more about our work to date, and the topics we think as a Network the visual arts should be discussing. We'll also be announcing some very important news about the future of the network.

There are a few places left for this event. Find out more here: http://nationalturningpointsummit.eventbrite.com/
