Pakistan's Metro Systems - The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

@ VOL 3 ON MAR 10, 2018

The presentation by Awais Aqdus is about the metro systems that have been and are being constructed in Lahore, Islamabad, Multan, etc. Having such massive structures running through the city while the only purpose these forms are serving is an extra lane, solely to drive a bus. Comparing our metro system to those present in Rome, Berlin, London, is it necessary for us to show these massive bridges and is the urban space they have occupied justified? How does this affect our urban fabric?

Clean Water for Life

Clean water may not be a luxury for us, but it is for many. Bradley Pierik (of Twothirds Water) has been studying the systems by which third-world countries purify their water to make it safe for human consumption. When waterborne diseases account for the majority of hospitalizations, a filtration system can literally be a lifesaver. In "Clean Water for Life" from PKN Vancouver Vol. 28, Bradley goes into depth on his research and a prototype filter he's made while performing outreach in countries all over.

The Information of Space

“Space is information-rich, and the events that occur therein provide narrative.” Miles Thorogood explores how space provides information and can be interpreted by artists in different ways. In “The Information of Space” from PKN Richmond, BC Vol. 3, we see this concept is the basis behind Audio Metaphor, a company which transforms text into soundscape composition. Miles describes some projects that have been done to create AI systems which mimic animal behaviour.

Ceramic Assemblies

"Ask a ceramicist and they will insist that the material lives." In Ceramic Assemblies from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, Laura Garófalo and Omar Kahn of Liminal Projects discuss their prototypes for ceramic building systems that were developed at the European Ceramics Workcentre (ekwc), in Oisterwijk, the Netherlands. They are designs that explore ways that architecture can mediate heat, water and nature. Ceramics, which are fired clay, are one of the oldest building materials. But they defy easy categorization because their behavior and properties are so diverse. Ceramics were used to build the Roman aqueducts and also used for the heat shield on the Space Shuttle. Ask a ceramicist and they will insist that the material lives. It is this quality that Garófalo and Kahn want to capture and perpetuate in their work.

Let's Build a City

  Virgil Ierubino asks if you could build a city from the ground up, how would you do it? I don't just mean the buildings. By 'city' I mean the collection of humans and facilities and services and systems that collectively form a functioning society. Would you make different decisions than those which are made for us, all around us, every day? Or, realising that this question assumes you are in a position of considerable power, maybe you'd just go nuts?
