Above all, it aims to establish through the study of architecture and design, a sense of creativity’s long history, largely missing from contemporary discourses on the subject.It asks when, and where, and how did ‘creativity’ become a concern in architecture?What architectural forms and typologies have been said to represent creativity over the years?But so far the architectures and interiors of creativity exist in a curious condition: widespread, and well-known, they been produced in a largely unreflective way, with remarkably little sense of their own history.This session tackles precisely the question of history.Abstracts of no more than 300 words should be submitted straight to the session convenor(s).
Include your name, affiliation, title of paper or position, a C. of no more than five pages, home and work addresses, e-mail addresses and telephone numbers.
The forms of these spaces are perhaps best developed in the workspaces for the technology sector, whether it is for software and social media oriented corporations such as Google, or those more concerned with hardware, like Apple: all have invested publicly in ‘creative’ architecture.
The news media, and increasingly, education are also major clients.
What have been the lived experiences of these architectures of creativity?
How have such architectures been represented in the arts, particularly in film and television? And how have anti-architectural discourses figured in the understanding of architecture and creativity?
(for example, around MIT’s Building 20, the legendary precursor to so much ‘creative’ space). Examples might include the cabinets, bottege and studioli that appear repeatedly in Renaissance painting; art school design from the nineteenth century to the present day; the Bauhaus and other modernist experiments in designing creative space; the re-use of industrial buildings for creative purposes; the new designs for creativity commissioned by Apple and other technology companies.
