Liam Young and Kate Davies AA Unknown Fields Division studio named in top 10 London architecture units
Liam Young, 18 10 10
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. (more…)
