The experimental series represents a polemical, provocative and visionary approach to architecture and spatial practice delivered through international exhibitions, symposiums and publications. Architects, designers and academics use speculative narratives as a generative methodology to create, develop and represent visionary architecture and spatial ideas through transdisciplinary media.
The first theme of this collective experiment is Sensorium. It presupposes various aspects in recognizing and perceiving spaces in architecture or spatial practice. 21st-century technologies allow architects and designers to expand their professional territories, experimenting with novel architectural typologies. In this exhibition, contributors use speculative narrative methods to explore the theme of Sensorium in a variety of contexts. Sythnitics Space, proposed by Prof. Nic Clear and Hyun Jun Park, is a digital exploration into physical sites. They have produced images, animations and drawings for three iconic sites of Huddersfield – Castle Hill, Queensgate Market and the train station – and manipulated the data in a unique way that represents and discloses these familiar spaces, suggesting additional possibilities to expand and express existing spaces.
