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, and directed by Marianne Mueller and Olaf Kneer, Concrete Geometries is devoted to the intimate relationship between spatial form and human processes – be they social or aesthetic – and the variety of new material entities this relationship might provoke. The symposium is one of a series of events organized by the cluster.
