Cecil Balmond, March 5th

z1

Cecil Balmond will be visiting DS 15 on March 5th to look at our last semester’s work on
architecture and geometry. He is the deputy chair of Arups, founded the advanced Geometry
Unit, engineered virtually every really ambitious building you've seen recently
-- from pretty much everything by Rem Koolhaas, to Alvaro Siza, Toyo Ito, Daniel Libeskind
and all the Serpentine Pavillions. He's giving us half a day of his incredibly valuable
time from 9.30-2.

We'll be running the session in four groups, each lasting about an hour. The students have
just finished a project involving patternmaking and the design of a pavillion, and have now
designed a masterplan for redesigning the L1 shopping Centre in Liverpool. We'll be asking
the students to select and present their best work from last semester's just-finished
project,and to discuss how they might hope to develop it in their new project within the
masterplan.
The pin-ups will be held in the 4th floor studio at the University of Westminster,
35 marylebone Road (opposite Madame Tussauds), starting outside my office in the two nearest
pin up spaces and also in rooms M412 and M414 We will start at 9.30am and run till 2.

Here are some links with more information about Cecil Balmond.
