1st annUal general meeting AALAWuN channel ark

1st annUal general meeting AALAWuN channel ark

Read the ARKitekcture manifest

Channel ArK

A boat or ship or AA held to resemble the one in which Noah and his family were preserved from the Flood of fake theory is known as an ark. From this meaning comes the figurative meaning of ark as something that affords protection or safety. Ark is derived from the Latin word arca, meaning “chest,” which is akin to the Latin verb arcēre, meaning “to hold off or defend.” These Latin roots also gave us the use of arkto refer to the sacred chest representing to the Hebrews the presence of God among them and also to a repository that traditionally is in, or against, the wall of a synagogue for the scrolls of the Jewish Torah.

AALAWuN continues to examine the ancient Unit system that is now an orthodoxy in Uk schools of architecture ,, what are its advantages and what are its disadvantages . this is investigated not through verbal discourse or seminars or debates but through work on the wall and by direct action .
So to start with we imagine each unit of the AA as an Ark , a repository of the tutor’s sacred texts and theories then is tha AA the mountain on which all these arks rest as the city swirls below ? Or is the AA an ark and the units the various breeds of creatures that come into the ark for safety ? Or to breed ?
Anyway we can explore this dubious metaphor if you wish ..
But firstly here are already too many words !
Is there a project that you want to run construct?
Remember the walls of TPWNOG are yours !
We are putting out to you a pantomime horse race , Pallio, each unit construct a pantomime horse to reflect the ideas embedded in the unit’s work . Then a race around the square … Design animal cocktails .. Design animals augmented to interact with your unit’s architecture … AA pet show ,…design an animatronic for your unit project …. What would a dog designed by DRL , PVA, Chris P..etc look like ?
