Jewels of Architecture: An Interdisciplinary Collaboration

Description
The collaboration between artist and artisan in the execution of objects of pragmatism (for instance, buildings) or desire (for instance, jewellery) is as old as time itself. Yet the 21st century has spawned unprecedented collaborations that have blurred the boundaries between design professions, and encouraged a heightened opportunity for the cross fertilization of ideas in the advancement of the object. The designer’s willingness to step outside of their natural comfort zone of their discipline to explore different sectors can largely be attributed to an increasingly heterogeneous education system and the heightened awareness of the positive attributes of shared and borrowed knowledge. This lecture explores the interdisciplinary collaboration between Jason Pomeroy, an award-winning British architect, academic and TV personality and Simone Ng, a celebrated Malaysian-born jewelry designer on their collaboration.
