    Immaterial Materialities

    Edited by Sandra Karina Löschke and Desley Luscombe

    The collection of essays and visual essays in this issue explore materiality in relation to ideas about interactivity and how these have manifested themselves in art and architecture. Interstices 14 builds upon ideas and issues identified by a host of international guests at the Interstices Under Construction Symposium held at the Australian Institute of Architects in Sydney in November 2012. It endeavours to untangle tropes such as digital materialitymaterial agency and immateriality across an interdisciplinary field comprising architectural history, art history, curatorial studies, and art and architectural practice.

    Technics, Memory and the Architecture of History

    Edited by Stephen Loo and Andrew Douglas

    The collection of writings in this issue explores memory in relation to architectural history. History is not an inert past, and memory, as access to that past, is not purely an internal condition. Internal ‘mental images’ of memory are inseparable from the external ‘image-objects’ of history that are constructed in architecture, film, photography, art and the media. The divide between the inside and the outside of memory is constantly under negotiation, in which this issue take part. Interstices 13 derives from the first Interstices Under Construction Symposium held outside New Zealand, at The University of Tasmania’s School of Architecture & Design in November 2011.

    Unsettled Containers: Aspects of Interiority

    Edited by A.-Chr. Engels-Schwarzpaul and Andrew Douglas

    Interstices12 derives from a symposium held at The University of Auckland’s School of Architecture and Planning in honour of Distinguished Visitor David Leatherbarrow in October 2010. Impelling this edition is the sense of an undervaluation – critically, aesthetically, professionally – of interiority. Cursorily put, interiority is routinely the casualty of a quarantining edict that has insistently settled it ‘inside’. The essays, drawings and reviews in “Unsettled Containers: Aspects of Interiority” seek to unsettle this closeting effect and consider interiority beyond the prevailing object-cult in design and architecture and a general neglect of the interior. Against an incessant inside/outside partition (of workplaces and dwellings, public and private domains), they explore inside-outside reversals, public-private conflations, vitalising contact-intimacies and alliances that pitch up against a backdrop of stalely replicated public non-places and often banal, architectonic formalism.

    The Traction of Drawing

    Edited by Laurence Simmons and Andrew Barrie

    “The Traction of Drawing” queries whether, with the proliferation and maturation of digital technologies, drawing is now really “done and dusted”. The collection of essays, drawings and reviews in this issue explores different technologies of drawings and suggests that drawing still works. However, a shift to a post-digital condition is required where, by critically re-evaluating and renegotiating the roles of various instruments and techniques, the ‘craft’ of drawing applies across all drawing practices, analogue and digital. The gap that seems to divide these approaches is artificial, and drawing maintains its central role in architectural thinking and making.

    Adam's House in the Pacific

    Edited by Ross Jenner, Mark Jackson and A.-Chr. Engels-Schwarzpaul

    The tenth issue of Interstices derives largely from a symposium in honour of Joseph Rykwert held at the University of Auckland in November 2008, on the occasion of his stay as Distinguished Visitor to the School of Architecture and Planning. The primitive hut seemingly provides a base for a natural perception uncluttered by cultural baggage, where only innate ideas and external necessities prevail in the pursuit of ever purer tectonics and returns to origins. Addressing the assumptions underlying such ideas, this issue raises questions about the need for architecture in the ‘paradisiacal’ contexts of the Pacific; architecture’s relationship with nature and the scene of Paradise; questions of origins and notions of the primitive in domestic, public and commercial contemporary architecture; the connections between these buildings and those original to the Pacific; and the significance of Rykwert’s work today, in relation to discourses of appropriation and deconstruction.

    “Faciality” explores the connection of notions of the face with facades, fronts, holey walls and materiality. It asks in how far architectural modernity might be regarded as an intensification of the black hole/white wall system, and how far a dismantling. Does the removal of the face from the façade make a building more or less like an object? Are contemporary attempts at animating the building within a flow of forces and movements to be seen as a final overcoming of faciality?
