OMMX: Changing Rooms

Upcoming Talk - 5th December 2018

Much of what constitutes ‘private space’ today has been compressed into an individual room and this has precipitated changes in how we interact with objects, buildings and each other. Given the scarcity of affordable housing, an increasing number of people now find themselves living in shared accommodation well into their 30s. In this talk OMMX will explore how design might embrace these changes and discuss how architecture that looks forward, to both incremental and transformational change, can create space for co-authorship and adaptation. The talk will illustrate how this context has influenced their practice and how they set about preparing their buildings for change.

London-based OMMX was established in 2011 by directors Hikkaru Nissanke and Jon Lopez. They have since developed a significant portfolio of international projects while contributing to the wider architectural culture through their teaching and research practices. The practice has recently been nominated for the 2018 Mies van der Rohe prize for their Stele House project.

The talk will take place at the offices of Jonathan Tuckey Design, 58 Milson Road at 7pm, Wednesday 5th December 2018. Please join us for a drink before, or after, the talk.
