Technical Studies Lecture, 3rd November 2016

Emma Flynn (AStudio) + Christian Kerrigan

Living Architecture

Thursday 3rd November, 6pm

Room M416 (Robin Evans Room)

Department of Architecture


Emma Flynn leads Research and Development at the London-based architecture practice AStudio. A practicing architect and design researcher, Emma’s work broadly focuses on the future architectural landscape in relationship to nature, exploring environmental responsiveness and resilience in the context of climate change and resource depletion. Emma is a tutor in Environmental Design at The Bartlett, UCL; Design Think Tank leader at the London School of Architecture; and works with students at Brunel University as part of the EU Co-Innovate programme. In June this year she talked about Bio-Responsive façades with Dr Rachel Armstrong at Vision: The Future of the Built Environment.

Christian Kerrigan trained as an architect, but has worked for a number of years as an artist. Christian is now based at AStudio working at the intersection of art and science exploring nature and architecture and how we might use algae as an energy resource and carbon sink for new architecture on earth and outer space. Recent work includes ‘The 200 Year Continuum’ … “exploring the line between technology and nature…I use digital technology and scientific methods to make sculptures, installations, films, drawings and architecture, which portray an ‘evolutionary principle’ of nature and technology as a single living organism.”
