Bio: 

Laurence Kimmel is a Lecturer at the Faculty of Built Environment. She is an architect (MArch Ecole d'Architecture de Lyon, 1998) and a philosopher of architecture (PhD University Paris 10 Nanterre, 2006). She published her first book “Architecture as landscape” in 2010. It describes constructive experiences of architectures that are open towards the landscape. She is preparing her second book "THRESHOLDS between public and private space, expressing the socio-political in architecture".

I have taught at several universities in Australia and France. My primary focus has been on theoretical courses on the aesthetics of architecture and the city, also convening studio courses, and supervising Masters thesis students. Between 2007 and mid-2015 I taught at several institutions:

• Lecturer at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure du Paysage de Versailles (2007- 2010)

• Lecturer at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’architecture de Paris la Villette (2013-2015) and at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’architecture de Montpellier (2014- 2015)

Research Activities: 

‘THRESHOLDS’ expressing the socio-political in architecture.

Her research focuses on boundaries and gradients between public and private space. 

Her research also addresses the notion of ‘critical practice’: interior architects, architects and urban planners that use the thinking tools of art and philosophy to underpin their practice.

The objects of research range through different countries (e.g. France, Germany and Brazil) and across different areas (architecture, interior architecture, art, landscape).

BACKGROUND

Since completing my dissertation under the supervision of Professor Maryvonne Saison (University Paris Nanterre), and having published a book under the supervision of Professor Pierre-Damien Huyghe (Emeritus Professor at University Paris I Sorbonne), my primary research focus has been on how the spatial organisation of architecture affects social interactions and orchestrates different attitudes and actions in buildings. These different attitudes and actions range from the collective to the individual. They relate to a range of spaces from the more public to the more private. My approach has been influenced by Walter Benjamin and more generally the critical philosophy of the Frankfurt school and its contemporary heirs such as Richard Sennett and Jean-Louis Déotte.

RESEARCH ACHIEVEMENTS AND CONTRIBUTIONS

My research identifies the conditions under which some contemporary ‘architectures as apparatuses’ both reveal and affect social life. According to Gilbert Simondon, a split between the public and private sphere, and between the collective sphere and the individual sphere, took place during the modern period in the Western world. This resulted in an extreme partitioning or rather homogenization in architecture. This split constrained the architectural expression of the intertwining of these spheres which existed organically before the modern era. The intertwining of spaces of different statuses is becoming topical again. The so-called ‘threshold’ approach which has been a subject of my research brings back the importance of areas of ambiguity between two statuses, and in turn the importance of the negotiation of space by visitors.

My research contributes to knowledge:

on contemporary architecture, and its capacity to have a socio-political meaning via its spatial organisation.

regarding the concept of public space in the contemporary age of social media and dialogue between diverse communities.

constraints to the expression of social dialectics in architecture, such as counter-terrorism guidelines and how to find a balance between requirements.

In entering a new tertiary research environment in Australia in 2015, I have widened my research interests and successfully redirected publication effort to Q1 journals.

Other professional activities

Before entering academia in 2007, I accumulated over a decade of project management and design experience in the public and private sectors in France. This professional foundation has proven invaluable for my subsequent research career:

1995-1998: In charge of urban design studies at the CERTU (Centre for studies in transport and urban planning). Major project on the temporality of urban project construction.

1998-2001: Urban projects coordinator. In charge of urban design studies at the Groupe d’Etudes et de Prospective (Studies and prospective group) of the Direction Départementale de l’Equipement (Departemental planning direction) of the district Hauts-de Seine.

2001-2004: Project manager in urban design at the PUCA (Plan Urbanisme Construction et Architecture), Ministry of Ecology. Major project as Coordinator of the competition ‘Villa urbaine durable‘(ecological urban housing projects).

2004-2006: Architect in practice.

• Project manager at Architecture Workshop 2 (2005 –2006)

• Project manager in the agency Platane Architecte, Paris 2004 –2005)

2012-2013: Urban Planner for the French State. Urban planning for the DRIEA des Hauts-de-Seine, a service of the French State (Département des Hauts-de-Seine, Nanterre). Major projects on urban quality of the area of the new metro stations of the Grand Paris Express and study of the architecture and urban planning implications of potential flood zones of the Seine.

 

Another professional activity is Exhibition Curating

For over a decade overseas and in Sydney I have contributed in curatorial roles to professional design exhibitions. Leaving aside the staple of student work, these include since 2008:

• May 2010: Curator .‘La clarté du labyrinthe’ at the Gallery Grands Bains Douches de la Plaine in Marseille.

• June-August 2015:  Curator. ‘+/- 4’ (Ungefähr Vier) in the Gallery Lage Egal in Berlin, presenting works by Claire-Jeanne Jezequel, Lorraine Pellegrini and Geraldine Trubert.

• September 2016:  Curator.  ‘Shifting, Drifting, Dribbling’. Sheffer Gallery, Sydney, presenting works by Michael Tawa, Vesna Trobec, Samantha Donnelly, Claire-Jeanne Jezequel, Marie Reinert, Geraldine Trubert. Peer-reviewed (Project selected to be part of Sydney Design week, and supported by the Alliance Française de Sydney (Philippe Platel, cultural attaché of the French Embassy)

• April 2018. Curator. ‘Cut Insight’. Sheffer Gallery, Sydney, presenting works by Maxime Thieffine, Sarah Tritz, Eric Stephany, and Claire-Jeanne Jezequel.

Grants: 

2019: Safe and Secure Public Domains. Chief Investigator. Industry Grant from Landcom NSW. Approved by the Landcom University Roundtable and Community of Practice. $43,864 for UNSW.

2017: A GIS-based risk and safety analysis of entrance areas in educational buildings based on students’ experience. Team Leader. Internal Faculty Grant (with two colleagues from Construction Management). $10,000.

2017: Layered Security. Research mentor and supervisor of Jack Peacock. UNSW Built Environment Research Start grant.

My research Safe and Secure Public Domains about design in the context of counter-terrorism guidelines contributes to the improvement of the practices of architects and other building professionals. A Q1 article (Kimmel et al 2020) discussed objectives aimed at changing policy guidelines. Contacts with Marissa Looby, Principal Design & Research, Government Architect NSW and Laurence Johnson, City of Sydney, were key linkages in propagating regulatory reform.

Research mentoring and facilities

Since completing my dissertation under the supervision of Professor Maryvonne Saison (University Paris Nanterre), and having published a book under the supervision of Professor Pierre-Damien Huyghe (Emeritus Professor at University Paris I Sorbonne), my primary research focus has been on how the spatial organisation of architecture affects social interactions and orchestrates different attitudes and actions in buildings. These different attitudes and actions range from the collective to the individual. They relate to a range of spaces from the more public to the more private. My approach has been influenced by Walter Benjamin and more generally the critical philosophy of the Frankfurt school and its contemporary heirs such as Richard Sennett and Jean-Louis Déotte.

In my academic life my own role has increasingly shifted from mentee to mentor through supervision of masters (now approaching 50 in France and Australia) and doctoral theses (in Australia, one completion and two current students at UNSW).
