What Is The Future Of Domestic Life? with British Council and Creative Dundee
What Is The Future Of Domestic Life?
15 November 2016
As co-producer of The Architecture Fringe, I worked with the British Council and Creative Dundee to bring together Dundee residents, commentators and designers to discuss the future of domestic life in the city at Dundee Contemporary Arts. Debating ideas about shared space and common ground, the panellists included author Gerry Hassan, curator Shumi Bose, programme director of Interior Environmental Design at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design Andy Milligan and film-maker Sam Gonçalves. The panellists were asked to explore notions of domestic life in a place where traditional boundaries between civic space and private life are increasingly blurred.
Prompted by the questions raised in the exhibition Home Economics at 2016's Venice Architecture Biennale, which challenged preconceptions about contemporary life and proposed five new models for domestic living by artists, architects and community house-builders.
