In this episode Simon Henley interviews Milinda Pathiraja. Milinda's is a director and co-founder of Robust Architecture Workshop, a practice based in Sri Lanka, and concerned with developing new means for architecture to operate there. The term 'Robust' is key, its meaning to Milinda representing architectures ability to develop a resilience by a clear sighted engagement with the world - eschewing the brittleness that comes from autonomous conversations, and making its languages from a bottom up approach, one with tolerance at its heart. Here tolerance is a calling to an architecture which is sited in the specifics of the architects context, and the needs of the project - encompassing material behaviours but also much more, including the lives and futures of those engaged with its making. —— Credits: Register is the Research Group in the Department of Architecture & Landscape at the Kingston School of Art, Kingston University London Head of Department: Mary Johnson Producer: Laura Evans / Andrew Clancy Interviewer: Simon Henley Editor: Andrew Clancy Music: Poddington Bear - Rainbow Architecture
