        Architects and architecture enthusiasts joined us for the fourth lecture in the 2014 UQ Architecture lecture series, presented by the University of Queensland School of Architecture and the Asia Pacific Design Library. Liam Young from 'Tomorrows Thoughts Today' presented as part of the series on Tuesday April 15 on the topic of ‘A Brave New Now’. During this lecture Liam explored the possibilities of fantastic, perverse and imaginary urbanisms, challenging the audience to reconsider the present from the perspective of these hypothetical future scenarios. Event details: Date - Tuesday, 15 April, 2014 Time - 6:00pm for a 6:30pm talk Venue - Auditorium 1, Level 2, State Library of Queensland More about the speaker: Liam Young teaches at the Architectural Association in London and is visiting professor at Princeton University. He is an architect who operates in the spaces between design, fiction and futures. Liam is founder of the urban futures think tank Tomorrows Thoughts Today, a group whose work explores the possibilities of fantastic, perverse and imaginary urbanisms. He co-founded the ‘Unknown Fields Division’, an award winning nomadic workshop that travels on annual expeditions to the ends of the earth to investigate unreal and forgotten landscapes, alien terrains and industrial ecologies. Unknown Fields have developed projects through expeditions from the Ecuadoran Amazon and the Galapagos Islands to far north Alaska, the mining landscapes of the Australia Outback, the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone and Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. Liam was a curator of the 2013 Lisbon Architecture Triennale and is a contributing editor for ICON magazine. Liam’s work has been acclaimed in both mainstream and architectural media, including the BBC, NBC, Wired, Time, and Dazed and Confused.

          Chupan Chupai is a short film installation that combines environment design and cinema in an exhibition format. The project was developed for the 'Future Perfect' exhibition as part of the 2013 Architecture Triennale in Lisbon, Portugal and was presented by DAZED as part of the Visionaries series. http://www.dazeddigital.com/artsandculture/article/17980/1/factory-fifteens-futureworlds-dazed-visionaries SYNOPSIS In a near future heavily influenced by the imminent boom of the Indian subcontinent, an emerging technology and economic superpower a new digital city has developed. The film follows a group of young children as they play a game of hide and seek (Chupan Chupai) in the bustling streets of this smart city. Through their play the children discover how to hack the city, opening up a cavernous network of hidden and forgotten spaces, behind the scenes of everyday streets. The narrative of piece focuses on how the children interact with their built environment, we explore the smart city through the device of the classic children's game. The design of the future city fuses technology and built matter as one programmable environment. Using gestures and signs as a language, the project takes the concept of gesture based control to the level where we can interact and control all elements of the built environment, creating a symbiosis between technology and the city. The film splits the physical architecture of the city into two categories; the synthesised lived in city, and its organic wild undergrowth. The project was shot on location in India and uses a mixture of animation and visual effects to embellish the design of the city and locations that are pictured.

              The Unknown Fields Division is a nomadic design studio that ventures out on expeditions to the ends of the earth to explore peripheral landscapes, industrial ecologies and precarious wilderness. These landscapes - the iconic and the ignored, the excavated, irradiated and the pristine - are embedded in global systems that connect them in surprising and complicated ways to our everyday lives. They are the dislocated hinterlands that lie behind the scenes of modern cities. Each year we navigate a different trajectory as we seek to map the complex and contradictory realities of the present as a site of strange and extraordinary futures. Here we are both visionaries and reporters, part documentarians and part science fiction soothsayers as the otherworldly sites we encounter afford us a distanced viewpoint from which to survey the consequences of emerging environmental and technological scenarios. Join the division for our next expedition. www.unknownfieldsdivision.com www.aaschool.ac.uk/unknownfields The Unknown Field Division is coordinated by Liam Young and Kate Davies.

                What happens when architecture becomes purely a vehicle for the creation of capital? GOM is a city built by the forces of the market. People question where it is and if it exists at all, but everyone acknowledges the trillionaires it gives rise to, and the wealth that GOM traders have amassed by building speculatively, buying and selling space in the city as commodity to be profited from. GOM is sited in a context between the fiction of money, architecture's perceived value within society through the mediated image, and the Naughties.

                      Speculative visions of a future city August 10 - October 28 Eindhoven has a tradition to uphold when it comes to thinking about the future, with technology and design together playing the leading role. It was therefore inescapable that the English think tank Tomorrows Thoughts Today (TTT) would eventually find its way to Eindhoven. By now TTT has almost become part of the family. Not only did they contribute to the Great Babylon Circus at MU, with the intriguing ‘Landscape of unnatural history’, and conceive the luminous drones that performed an interactive choreography over the river Dommel during GLOW, but behind the scenes they also worked together with Philips Design on the Design Probes programme. This cooperation led to our curiosity about TTT’s many-sided practice and visions of the future being roused even further. More than any other they know how to link up contemporary, and in particular future-oriented thought on nature, urbanism, technology and culture, into inspiring and bizarre stories that tell us as much about the future as about the present day. In all events, in their work they manage to expose the fashionable cult around ‘innovation’. According to TTT, the guise of innovation often simply shrouds a lack of historical awareness, a pitfall into which we ourselves would not like to fall. Freely and humorously switching between our late-modern past, present-day archaisms and retro-projections of the future, they denounce this shortcoming in a visual way. MU is pleased to give TTT front man Liam Young whatever room he needs for this. Working as an urbanist, designer and futurist, he is seen as one the people who will change the face of architecture and design over the next few years. At MU, as the pivot in an extensive network of mad scientists, literary astronauts, speculative gamers and enlightened minds, he is starting out on a comprehensive project entitled Under Tomorrows Sky, in which the city of the future comes to life. After an initial think tank came together in June to sketch the contours of this city, it will actually be erected at MU at the end of July, and will be open to the public from August 10th. The idea is that this model of a city will serve as the décor for stories created by writers, film makers, artists, game developers, philosophers, designers, and of course the public, on urban life in the future.
