”]McEwan, C (2011) North Lindsay Street and The Howff [photographs of scale model]A recent presentation in Dresden, Germany for the 5th Annual Dresden International Doctoral Colloquium offered the opportunity to consolidate current work in progress.

In attendance were Cameron McEwan, Alex Pearson, Jorg Schroeder, Karla Spennrath, Naira Chilingaryan, and others. The panel of critics included Prof. Ralf Weber, Architect and Environmental Psychologist at Dresden University of Technology and Prof. Dr. Alexander Schmidt, Architect and Urban Designer from University of Duisburg, Essen.

Attendees presented work on such topics as: phenomenological concepts of architectural design; digital configurations of urban space; case studies; public art in the city and city edge housing.

This author divided the presentation in two: first an overview of the PhD, then a focus on the conference theme “Aesthetics,” in particular “Urban Aesthetics,” demonstrated through a design project.

Included here is a selection of extracts from the presentation.

Temporal Thinking and Serial Form

Study for an urban design proposition on North Lindsay Street, Dundee. Freud’s repressed thoughts are superimposed over an historic photograph of Lindsay Street, above which is positioned an unrealised prison complex for Dundee. Seriality is implied as both a critical reflective practice; and formal design operation.
