UTS – Even Better than the Real Thing

Friday, 5th December 2008

Some photos of nice projects on display at the UTS Exhibition — Even Better than the Real Thing, curated and organised by Dr Sam Spurr. The show was very good I thought — UTS definitely has the clearest agenda of the three architecture schools in Sydney and their projects had a very strong graphic sensibility, if a lack of plans, sections and the like. The projects are generally about the possibilities of very focussed areas of study; structural facades, data collection and visualisation, visual indertiminancy, and (as Anthony Bourke refers to it) post-kids-with-balloons-urbanism.

Being a bad blogger, I neglected to get the names of all the student’s work shown here, so if you know, let me know! + Insert iphone dodgy camera disclaimer here.

The Street as Platform studio had a series of visualisations playing continuously. Difficult to photograph, and they probably could have done with a better projector, but an impressive result from a studio where the students had no coding skills at the beginning of the two week course.

And finally, Jason McDermott’s PHD work in progress, using wii-motes as interactive drawing devices. Pictured above, in ‘Awesome Romance’ mode.
