LECTURE MITTELMEERLAND BY MEDINE ALTIOK, May 19, 11am

Hosted by [a]FA applied Foreign Affairs &
Urban Strategies and Theory of the Landscape
Institute of Architecture, University of Applied Arts Vienna

Over the last 4 years the AA Visiting School MITTELMEERLAND 
investigated the future of the Mediterranean- a 'territory', one that 
is based on climatic and economic conditions, and subject to specific social, political and spatial dynamics and experiences. We travelled 6 different Mediterranean cities: Dubrovnik, Tangier, Beirut, Algiers, Alexandria and finally Izmir.

Medine Altiok will present the projects and reflect on the findings 
and results. What are similarities and differences of the cities? Does the Mediterranean have the potential to establish as one territory despite the political conflicts?
Could we see and learn something new about the Mediterranean?

MEDINE ALTIOK graduated from the AA London, where she is program director of the Mittelmeerland Visiting School since 2011. She is initiator of a series of research projects dealing with cultural, 
political and economic changes in the Mediterranean. She is based in Zurich with her own architecture office.

Christian Friedrich, Architect, Delft
airborne wind energy

Robotic architectures that harvest atmospheric resources of power - hundreds of meters above the tips of conventional wind turbines wind power is most abundant and reliable. Here, only airborne wind energy systems can operate.

The theoretical basis for the efficient systems currently in development was not found until 1980, when the seminal article ‘Crosswind Kite Power’ was published by Miles Loyd. More 40 years later several initiatives have formed that develop working prototypes. Commercial exploitation of the established technology base demands new wing designs, high-tech lightweight and durable materials, highly optimized motor-generator units, and state-of-the-art sensors and flight controls. There are legal challenges as well – these systems are neither aircraft nor building.

Christian Friedrich, architect specialized in robotic architecture, control and design interaction, will present theory and promise of this emerging energy technology, the challenges involved in its development and its implications for the built environment.
