Forensic Architecture (FA), based in Goldsmiths, University of London, is a pioneer in interdisciplinary methods and approaches to evidence. FA works in partnership with institutions across civil society to investigate human rights violations, police brutality, border regimes and environmental violence. Their investigations employ pioneering techniques in spatial and architectural analysis, open source investigation, digital modeling, immersive technologies, documentary research, situated interviews, and academic collaboration. This workshop will be a chance to learn more about the innovative investigative methods of Forensic Architecture (FA), and an initial step in bringing various scholars of campus together to consider FA-style research clusters and collaborations on our campus. 

 

Two FA researchers, Nicholas Masterson and Nicholas Zembashi, will lead our workshop by sharing about their projects and methods and answering questions. Both Masterson and Zembashi have backgrounds in architecture and their contributions at FA center around digital media (spatialization, animation) and politics.
