Living deliberately by Niall Deloughry

12 March 2013 5:00 pm at SAUL Studio

“Living deliberately”

I don’t know when or how I developed my affinity for rich experience of nature or if it was a gradual adoption affected by my means as I grew up. Throughout my early life I tended to be out-doors more than indoors and active more than inactive, preferred games and challenges rather than sports. I liked the feeling of travelling using augmented muscular drive as exerted through machines and I also appreciated being able to travel farther because I had a bike. I love self-powered propulsion machines!

Reading Space: Formal Aspects of Composition in Detail by Jim Luke

5 March 2013 5:00 pm at SAUL Studio

‘One aspect of our understanding of an architectural object is that, when we perceive it, it is no more than an assemblage of material, like any other object. This aspect of our perception is thought to be precognitive, arouses aesthetic judgement and feelings, and is therefore outside of technical and practical concerns. This talk will pursue that thought, to find ways that it might be influential in design practice’.

Jim Luke graduated from the Mackintosh School of Architecture, Glasgow, and has worked all over the world. He previously lectured at Queens University Belfast and joined Bucholz McEvoy Architects in 1999.
