Ji Hoon Kim from Darryl Chen and Elena Pascolo’s Bartlett M.Arch studio has been awarded second prize in the SCI-Arc Cleantech Corridor International Competition. Ji Hoon responded to the brief to reimagine LA’s Downtown with a scenario of a near-future creative industry as a place of prolific physical production. Juror Stan Allen noted that “a strategic way forward re-imagines the city of the future as a place not only of consumption, but a place where things are still made….” The MegaCreativeFactory muses on what kinds of near-dystopias are produced when the creative industries take on the scale and infrastructures of the postindustrial city.

More projects from last year’s Bartlett studio can be found at the newly launched Urban Provocations website.

After winning last years RIBA presidents medals with a project from their 08/09 studio ‘Necessary Monsters‘ set in the Galapagos Islands Liam Young and Kate Davies’ 09/10 ‘End of the World and Other Bedtime Stories’ has been named one of the top 10 London architecture units by the Architectural Review. Set in the Arctic Circle the studio’s Department of Intangible Technology has encoded the ephemera of web 2.0 into data fossils that calcify on our own bones and are etched into the layers of glacial ice. Their illegal biology unit has cultivated a psychedelic mushroom farm in which to drown our sorrows and in our department of climatology a hanging community squats a waterfall as a protest for water rights and a weather sensitive landscape broadcasts the song of a dying world. Projects will be posted on TTT shortly and you can read the brief below.

Stay tuned for their 10/11 Unknown Fields Division studio ‘Never Never Lands: Prospecting in Dreamtime‘ set in the mining landscapes of outback Australia.  Also look out for the launch of their new AA summer travelling studio ‘Unknown Fields’- a collaboration with Phillips Design probes, Volume Magazine et al.

Darryl Chen of Tomorrow’s Thoughts Today was selected as a finalist for “Project Vienna – A Design Strategy. How To React to a City?” and is featured in an exhibition at the MAK in Vienna. The ideas competition called for future-oriented projects that expand the concept of design, and centred on the significance of design as a means to influence and shape society. Selected entries were selected on the basis of their subversive and speculative natures…. values we hold close to our hearts at TTT. The accompanying catalogue features essays from Archizoom’s Andrea Branzi and FAT’s Sam Jacob, among other Viennese notables.

The exhibition runs at the MAK in Vienna from 29 June to 12 Sep. Details can be found here. (more…)
