Current Research: Tropicality at the Architectural Association


The research project takes form of a two week workshop which is open to students as well as the general public. Our agenda is nomadic but we aim to study the tropical dwelling through architectural stories about home, culture and place.

Initially we are planning a 3 year agenda with a specific focus on one country per year, starting with Costa Rica, Vietnam and India.

During the two week field trips, we will visit the homes of people from all walks of life, talking to them about their experiences in the architecture they inhabit, and exploring that same architecture as a character.

At each home we will make a short film as a narrative composition of images (form, space, light, colour, materiality) and sound (voice, story, city, nature). The films will become a unique and perceptive form of architectural construct.
