    A month ago already in this blog I mentioned a collaboration I had started with a chessmaster.  Here's a video of her visit to the workshop I led at Stuttgart's Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste. 

    Presented in the context of a workshop that I directed at ABK Stuttgart called "Parameters of Chess: Designing with Decisions," Vera Nebolsina lectures as a chess theorist to architecture students. Starting with Deleuze's theories about chess, go and the 'ideal game', Nebolsina talks about comparative value of chess pieces, the game of go and Japanese business strategies, lines of desire on the board, and the relationship between materiality and space.

About this Blog

Posts are sporadic. Topics span architecture, urban design, planning, and tangents from these. I sometimes include excerpts of academic articles. There is an evolving series of interviews with non-architects about subjects often discussed by architects (neighborhoods, social justice, style, etc). This blog started during my fellowship at Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart, Germany.
