Prof. Bob Sheil Lecture00:56

SCI-Arc welcomes Professor Bob Sheil, to the Keck lecture stage. Sheil is Professor of Architecture and Design through Production and Head of Department at The Bartlett School of Architecture. The lecture will focus on how, in the post digital age, new tools have dissolved boundaries between the drawn and the made. Sheil’s research is focused on experiments in the production of architecture where questions are developed through integrated acts of design, making and writing. His work explores the complex relationship between design and making, and in particular how this relationship affects and determines the architectural outcome. He defines this field as ‘Protoarchitecture’, a speculative approach to architectural production that seeks to create and hypothesize alternative and simultaneous approaches to making architecture, involving varied methodologies of design, and varied methodologies of making.
