Liam Young and Kate Davies of the Architectural Association's Unknown Fields Division have teamed up to launch an annual "nomadic studio." Next July, 2011, Young and Davies will lead a two-week visit to the irradiated zones of exclusion at Chernobyl, Ukraine, and the derelict Soviet launch-city of Baikonur for an intensive workshop of architectural research and design.

As Liam describes the studio: "Together we will form a traveling circus of research visits, field reportage, rolling discussions, and impromptu tutorials... Joining us on our travels will be a troupe of collaborators: photographers and filmmakers from the worlds of technology, science and fiction including the Philips Technologies Design Probes research lab and Archis/Volume magazine."

There is a £650 fee to participate, but this does not cover flights or hotels. Sign up here, if you're interested.
