About the show

Studio Philosophy

The interaction of private, public and local life with architectural culture is the theme. The heart of the studio is the development of design skills: how to start, how to activate your creative mind and how and when to critically examine what it gives; how to carry on and find the value in your work and when to start again; how to learn the obscure arts of façade-making; how to change a plan to work with the façade; how to see that this not illicit: how to make an interior and buildable details that support the design, all the while looking at other architects work and buildings in general to see how high and popular culture are evident in them. How to find the theoretical issues in your designs, and respond to them. How, starting from your own imagination, to make architecture with which other people can engage.

Projects

Housing for sale in Pewsey Wiltshire, based on a project realised by my office but relieved of constraints in order to explore what UK housing could be in these times.

SKVR, a new building on a site in Rotterdam for an amateur arts organisation, where students of all ages, including young children learn dance, music and art.

The familiarity of Pewsey gave students an opportunity see how they had to learn about their own culture. The airy spaciousness of Rotterdam and its social vigour gave them an alternative.
