Cass Interior Design students together with students from Hunan University, China and Dong Yang Mirae, South Korea have presented an exhibition for the London Festival of Architecture that looks at Re-Energizing Space.
The collaboration is now in its 5th year and is a part of the Hidden space research group which investigates abandoned, un-adapted and unused spaces within an urban environment. It looks are social innovation and new practice making spaces relevant for the future with sustainable outcomes. The group have now published its 5th Book in the Hidden Space series, which aptly called Re-Engerizing space.
The three universities exhibited student work that looked at ways of responding to adaptable space while retaining the honesty of or the integrity to the original intention of spaces and its architecture. But at the same time adding new contemporary layers of life.
