Under the title “What does it mean to make an experiment?” CITA and the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (KADK) is presenting an experimental exhibition on the theme: design led research. March 21th – May 14th

“What does it mean to make an experiment?” investigates the position, role and significance of the experiment within design led research. “In architecture and design the experiment is a particular mode of exploring the multiple and heterogeneous intersections that emerge from social, conceptual, technological, material and cultural contexts in which it is sited. These experimental practices find interesting parallels in the natural-science context. With a focus on material and computation the exhibition discusses how experimental practices through design, drawing, modelling, prototyping and building generate sites of making and reflection as well as of synthesis and innovation.

The exhibition showcases results from a 2 year research project between the Schools of architecture and design at the Danish Royal Academy of Fine Arts and display work by the members of the academies Center for IT and Architecture, Architecture School (CITA), SuperFormLab and Department of TextilesOpening Event: Friday March 21th 2014, 4 pm.

Symposium
The themes will inform an international symposium on Friday 25.th of April 2014 at the School of Architecture, with invited speakers from professional and research oriented design domains.  Entry to the event is free for public and academia.
