Killed by the Architect
Building on the understanding of Architecture as a sequence of designed environments
16/02/2017
The Department of Architecture at AUD hosted a lecture titled “Killed by Architect”, with Ms. Sara M. Anwar of ARCHITECTEM, who presented a series of narratives investigating the boundaries, events and dynamics activated by the discipline.
 
The title of the lecture is derived from a message that appears in a gaming console. ‘Killed by the Architects’ is a reference to having lost a life in the game due to a ‘fall or the wall’; alternately put, due to the designed conditions. Building on this understanding of Architecture as a sequence of designed environments, the lecture will explore layers of experiences.
 
ARCHITECTEM is a Dubai-based platform promoting academic architectural dialogue. It emerged from a relentless passion for Architecture and an acute need for an academic platform dedicated to the significant region of Middle East, South Asia and North Africa. 
 
The convener of the event is Prof. Jose Carillo, Assistant Professor of Architecture at AUD.
