There is an approach to architecture that champions “making”. Imperfections are accepted as a natural part of life, allowing room for error and welcoming the marks of human faults. This approach proffers their buildings to natural elements in a state of constant incompletion. Architects using this approach are usually highly conscious of their design decisions, elaborating a cohesive design philosophy. Does the acceptance of imperfections allow architects to constantly seek feedback from their creations, thus prolonging the timeframe for reflection?
This event will bring together seven architects from Southeast Asia to share about championing “making” as a design approach. Why is “making” an important philosophy for them? How is it implemented in their practice? And most importantly, how do they achieve insight through “mistakes” and “imperfections” in their process and product?
