Event Details

This panel discussion takes as its starting point Arthur Mamou-Mani’s site specific installation ‘Cloud Capsule’ produced for the Werkstatt’s exhibition ‘Staring at the Sun’. This event will explore the social implications different qualities of light can have within an urban environment.

Mamou-Mani will discuss the parametric modelling tools used to quantify the diffusion of light in his installation, while Mona Sloane will present the LSE research project ‘Urban Lightscapes/Social Nightscape’; a design workshop which took place on the local Whitecross Estate (October 2014), and looked to equip design professionals with the social research methods they need to create more ‘social designs’ in their daily practices.
Through lively debate ‘Building Lightscapes’ will provoke architects and designers to reconsider the importance of lighting schemes and the complex relationship different inhabitants of the city have with the way it is lit.
This event is part of a series programmed in parallel to the exhibition Staring at the Sun (23rd October – 14th December 2014).

Sto Werkstatt

The Werkstatt meaning workshop in German– is a showcase for the whole Sto Group and a new east London cultural establishment with a lively program of exhibitions, talks, workshops and consultations.

A full range of Sto Group’s products are at the Werkstatt for architects to play and create with, including glass and rendered rainscreen cladding, seamless acoustics, facade elements and photo catalytic interior paint coating.

The building is intended to be all about communication and collaboration, a place for encounter and inspiration, a place of creativity: the new “Werkstatt” of the Sto group. If there is truth in the phrase “the objective of all communication is cooperation”, then the Werkstatt is the place where this process should begin, where a coming together is transformed into exchange, where the exchange is part of the creative process.

The Werkstatt also extends out from it’s hub in Clerkenwell to offer connections to Sto’s international network of technical experts with local and global knowledge. The Werkstatt is a workshop for international designers and architects to meet, hear, see, be inspired, play and create.
