Campaigning Architecture is an international design workshop that operates across a range of scales and disciplines to explore more effective ways to make thought-provoking changes to our urban environment. Join us in exploring new modes of urban intervention for a hedonistic reuse and reactivation of a fatigued site in London’s East End.
Campaign strategies engage the city like no other: from the London Cycling Campaign to provide a collective voice for the City’s cyclists; to the cross-party campaign to bring London’s air quality into compliance with World Health Organization standards; to London’s successful bid for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games. Executed as an amalgamation of military-like precision and haphazard logic, the effectiveness of campaigning lies in successfully navigating the social, political, and economic networks that make a city tick.
The two-week workshop will develop and deploy multiple ways for campaigning architecture—enabling participants to combine the potential of design intelligence with the strategic power of propaganda in order to get things done in the city.
