Role Play Beijing

Sat, Dec 15    2pm

Role Play focuses on the professional lives of Columbia GSAPP alumni in China through a series of conversations. Today’s practices in the fields of architecture and urbanism are no longer restrained to their traditional roles, instead pursuing a range of paths that explore alternative projects and roles. These professionals translate and apply architectural knowledge to other fields, industries, and discourses. This type of role play, in turn has enriched and made more complex the discussions on architecture, urbanism and beyond. As a laboratory of architectural experiments, China helps to catalyze such processes, in which Columbia GSAPP alumni play a central role.

This series of conversations allows participants to present their professional paths and experiences, while a concluding roundtable discussion further examines how the role of the architect evolves and transforms through time and practice, and how architectural knowledge is being translated into other fields and industries in China. Organized by GSAPP alumni and hosted at the Columbia Global Center Beijing, this first event focuses on practices based in Beijing.

角色扮演 | 北京站
2018年12月15日 下午2-4点 哥大全球中心 | 北京

“角色扮演”是一个关于中国GSAPP毕业生职业经历的对话项目。在当下建筑、城市相关的实践中,“明星建筑师”已经不是唯一的出路,建筑师不再拘于传统的角色,而是更全面地以各种身份参与到项目的各个阶段和层面中去,另一方面,许多受过建筑专业教育的人也投身其他行业,将相关知识转译到其他领域中去。在这样双向的“角色扮演”过程中,建筑相关学科的内含也相应的扩充并变得更加复杂了。同时,中国作为建筑的试验场,更进一步催化了这样的转化过程。通过对话嘉宾对于职业经历的回顾,以及随后的圆桌讨论,该项目试图观察建筑师的角色当今的中国如何转化和发展,而建筑相关知识又如何被翻译到其他领域和行业中。

在首次北京的活动中,我们邀请了在北京进行实践的GSAPP校友分享和讨论自己的职业经历和观察。
