Muge Belek and Frederico Fialho Teixeira of [f]FLAT

Frederico Teixiera and Muge Belek

This event is now in the past.

Hear from Muge Belek and Frederico Fialho Teixeira of [f]FLAT discussing TransArchitectures at the fourth session of the 2017 UQ Architecture lecture series.

Muge Belek is an architect, a researcher, a part- time lecturer at Queensland University of Technology and a design studio leader at University of Queensland. She has worked in several architectural firms, including Zaha Hadid Architects Ltd in London, Istanbul and Brazil. She completed her PhD on Trans-Architectural Acoustics, for which she worked for two years with Marcos Novak in University of California Santa Barbara, Translab. Frederico Fialho Teixeira is an architect, a media artist and a lecturer at the UQ School of Architecture. Professionally, he worked for architectural offices that include Alvaro Siza Vieira and Zaha Hadid Architects Ltd. Presently, his studies fall into the areas of Computational Architecture and Spatial Arts with a focus in Biological Paradigms. Both professional and academic experiences are crucial for the development of his works.

Together, Muge and Frederico established [f]FLAT Architectures as a research platform for architectural and media art. The stage provides the ground to develop works with the emphasis on transvergent methodologies and techniques in design. In reaction to a world built on concepts, [f]FLAT uses percepts and affects as an extended mode of relating to space. With strong links to academia, [f]FLAT consciously aims to transfer the research into practice bypassing disciplinary design structures in the constant pursuit of innovation.

The annual UQ Architecture lecture series brings together forward-thinking architects and provocateurs who are each engaged in the generation of new knowledge, ideas and strategies within the field of architecture. Come along to free weekly lectures (21 Mar – 23 May) to widen your knowledge base, be inspired and gain valuable insight into the design processes and solutions of the contemporary architect.

If you can't make it on the night, check out the live stream. The video will also be available for viewing online after the event on the APDL Vimeo Channel.  Architectural professionals who attend or watch the series will be eligible for two formal continuing professional development (CPD) points (more info).
