Architecture as Extended Social Space
As part of the 'Can you show me the space' show at the Stanley Picker Gallery in Kingston public works have commissioned three maps by the architectural practices AOC, atelier d’architecture autogérée and drmm architects. The invited practices revisit and map the wider 'socio-spatial construct' of one of their recent projects, including off site informal networks and spaces that were used or which were created while the project was taking shape or after its completion. The presenations on the individual mappings is followed by a round table discussion. A fanzine which will be published following the talk will capture the forms of representation suggested by the different practices, with an additional essay by Professor Robert Mull, Architect and Head of Architecture and Spatial Design at the London Metropolitan University.

'Can you show me the space' is a programme of presentations, mapping workshops, exhibition and publications, organised by the art/architecture collective public works, Stanley Picker Fellows in Design at the Faculty of Art, Design & Architecture, Kingston
'Can you show me the space' points to a conceptual and practical need within design disciplines, to capture, visualise and acknowledge social and informal phenomena as part of architectural production. The representation of space within design/architecture is primarily focused on the description of the built form. Everyday life demonstrates that programmes and social networks are not confined to single built structures. Instead they spread across sites, time and relationships, and create new networks of spaces that we all use but almost never acknowledge or recognise as spatial constructs.
