As part of the Tate Local programme public works will run an artist lead walk in the area surrounding Tate Britain. Our walk - similar to the walk we are preparing in Hackney Wick with Lea Bank Square - will be in two parts. We will be making seed bombs this coming Monday and organise a walk later in the year to drop them while visiting horticulturally interested people and projects around Tate Britain.

Join us for the first part of the seed bomb making on Monday the 25th of October, from 11.00-16.00 to compress wildflower seed packs and contribute to conversations and exchange about local green spaces. We will be running the workshop in two locations first at Tate Britain, Manton Lawn from 11:00 - 1:30 and afterwards at Millbank Estate, Reynolds House courtyard, Erasmus Street from 14:00 - 16:00.

Horticultural expertise will be provided by gardener Hamish Liedel.

To find out more or take part call Ashley on 020 7887 3947 or email
The workshop and walk is for free but booking is required.



Symposium: Concrete Geometries -
Spatial Form in Social and Aesthetic Processes at the Architectural Association

Friday 15th October 2010 Architectural Association, 36 Bedford Square, London WC1B 3ES, UK
Main Lecture Hall

Concrete Geometries is a work-in-progress term derived from the synthesis of 'concrete', registering an existing reality or actual experience, and the abbreviation 'geometries', denoting spatial form. Set up as a research cluster at the Architectural Association School of Architecture, Concrete Geometries is seeking new ways of thinking about spatial form as a socially engaged and experientially relevant tool. The day will be structured into two thematic fields and four discussion blocks. The format of each block is a series of four short illustrated presentations followed by a round table discussion with an invited guest.
All sessions will be chaired by Marianne Mueller and Olaf Kneer.

Kathrin from public works will be talking at 14.00 as part of the Thematic Field B: Geometry and Social Processes Block 3 from 14.00 - 15.15.
Relational Space Works in this category are exploring the notion of spatial form as providing literal and immediate support for the unfolding of social situations, the creation of human relations and their social contexts as a practice, the geometry of social environments and the production of intersubjective encounters.

Kathrin is currently involved in building and filling a pantry (or larder) in Berlin. It is a project called Vorratskammer (Engl.: pantry), and the Vorratskammer is to feed a large public event later in the year.

The pantry has been under construction since October 2010, and exists as many storage spaces for goods and ideas along the way. It will come together and go live as one public space for the Über Lebenskunst Festival - to supply visitors with food and themes to do with growing and making food in and around Berlin.

Vorratskammer is a central part of the Über Lebenskunst programme, initiated by the German Federal Cultural Foundation and Haus der Kulturen der Welt. The Über Lebenskunst Festival takes place 17. to 21. August 2011 at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin.
