Urban {Care} Lab | May 3, 2020 at 10am-12pm PST
Presented by virtual care lab and Roundhouse Platform
(Brendan Sullivan Shea and Noémie Despland-Lichtert)

Roundhouse’s first online Urban Lab invites participants to explore the city from indoors with soundscapes, digital maps, archives and illustration tools. This session will be a guided exploration of our city as a system, body, and organism, and the ways it is perceived, represented, recorded, and imagined.

How do representations and perceptions of a city shift over time? How does our relationship to our cities change in a time of physical distance, and how should we care for our local communities from afar? And how can we integrate care into the ideas we imagine for our city’s future? We will focus on Los Angeles, though participants joining remotely from other cities will be able to consider these questions in the context of their own place. We will learn about untold histories and places, reorient our perceptions and boundaries, and try to see the city’s shape together from indoors.

About the hosts: Noémie Despland-Lichtert and Brendan Shea are curators, designers, and educators sharing an interest in site-specific histories and the relationship between infrastructure and aesthetics. They are currently visiting instructors at TTU College of Architecture, and are the founders of Roundhouse, a curatorial platform for public engagement with landscapes and sites. It aims to investigate urban change by facilitating engagement with site-specific histories through creative site exploration, archival research, publication and exhibition-making.
This workshop will take place on Zoom, with a capacity of 10 participants. Donations are appreciated ($0 - 25 recommended), but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Proceeds will be donated to Justice for Migrant Women Farmworkers' COVID-19 Relief Fund.

virtual care lab is a new series of experiments in remote connection, and is powered by NAVEL.
