Units

The interaction of private, public and local life with architectural culture is the theme.

The unit has examined the tower as an architectural project shaped by the specifics of a situation, devising projects that interact with the existing city.

Unit 04 is promoting the deployment of alternative material strategies, generative techniques, environmental systems and fabrication tools to evolve new ways of producing buildings capable of regenerating.

Representing the Performative craft of Commodification inherent within the (Ex)change process in projects in Mile End, Freetown and Agra.

Architecture can be understood as fiction, in that it may hold within its fabric, the histories of many lives.

This year we have proposed strategies for dealing with faltering post war estates through the inscribing of new uses and compositions over old.

The Unit is concerned with developing and designing interventions across a range of scales and ambitions, and seek as far as possible to develop authentic proposals in socially, economically, politically and environmentally challenging contexts.

Using the proposed HS2 route as a test bed we asked what role architecture has in infrastructure projects.

The work of Diploma Unit 12 is focused on the identity and atmosphere of new office buildings with a Gothic character.

Following the river Lea from Hackney Wick to Harlow, we explore new ideas in productive living, and make proposals for types of settlement.

We have focussed our attention on the landscape to the west of London – defunct Middlesex (now part of Greater London), Berkshire, Wiltshire and Somerset through which the M4 motorway passes.

In order to be effective, architects must connect what they design with how they feel about the world.
