Poor old George , lets hope there is a Teddy Heaven ... have you designed a tomb for him ? 

In a 1910 essay, Architecture, Loos wrote that "...only a very small part of architecture belongs to the realm of art: The tomb and the monument"... but Pallidio said that about 5oo years earlier ,   A Teddy monument  ? ...attached some teddies relaxing in Hackney ..... David Greene

I think his eulogy would read something like:

George has been beloved and carefully handled during his time....... Maybe his new configuration will open up a new london garden adventure.  I don't think he's quite ready for the tomb though. - Lucy Moroney

AALAWuN PRoPoSE AAmothership



with thanks to Zhuo Chen, Cong Ding Leszek Skrzypiec, Selina Zhang, Hariharasudhan Saminathan, Sophie Leigh, Luisa Pires 



AALAWuN responds to anything that is put in front of it .

Probing and asking questions in an informal ongoing context

Augmenting unassessed student driven projects .

As a response to the current conditions of the AA ,a globally dispersed  community, AALAWuN sees the silent buildings in the square as a mothership , and has a weekly blog  documenting  constructed situations in the square informed by transmissions to  the mother ship in the form of 2min. audio postcards from members of the absent crew .



This large poster expresses the open ended  working method of LAWuN , it is not a collage , more of an evolving ,unfolding accumulation by different  people at different times that is definitively neither complete or incomplete , at this point  it is also a proposition to ask what future do you want for the AA  and to consider it as a design project  in which managerial protocols serve the  ideas , concepts for a new AA  ?

The many synonyms for the word proposition  describe the design process, theory , idea , premise, postulation , concept

This poster is  a landscape in a state of continuous erosion and additions , nevertheless it is essentially a proposition , for an evolving year’s work whose subject is the AA  ..
