Aberrant Architecture

Friday 19 January 2018

Based in London, UK, Aberrant Architecture is an award-winning collaborative studio of designers, makers, and thinkers whose projects introduce new and unexpected ways of experiencing everyday life. Storytelling and research are at the heart of their practice, a practice which includes the first architecture residency at the Victoria and Albert Museum, exhibitions at the Venice Biennale for Architecture and Sao Paulo Biennial, public installations, and much more.

In this talk, Aberrant founders David Chambers and Kevin Haley will discuss the ideas, experiences, and stories that reside outside the “final” work or architecture – the “outtakes” – with friend and past collaborator Beatrice Galilee, Daniel Brodsky Associate Curator of Architecture and Design at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

Part of the Toronto Design Offsite Festival’s inaugural International Guest of Honour Program, this talk is supported by the Government of Ontario, the British Council, and Toronto Arts Council with funding from the City of Toronto, and co-presented with Harbourfront Centre.

The Toronto Design Offsite Festival (TO DO) is Canada’s largest cultural celebration of design with over 100 exhibitions and events forming Toronto’s design week, January 15-21, 2018. Going into its 8th year, TO DO transforms Toronto into a hub for creativity, taking design and art out of the studio and into the urban sphere, bringing people together to celebrate contemporary culture. We provide opportunities for emerging talent, and engage the community with exceptional and accessible public programming. In January 2017, TO DO had direct participation from 700+ artists and designers, saw 130k + visitors, received 109+ million press impressions, and 500+ million total brand impressions.
