Exhibition of street furniture work by First Year BA Architecture Students exploring possibilities of making and collaboration
Date: 21 December 2014
First year architecture students have been working on a 5-week collaborative project with makers at The Cass. A variety of methods of making found at The Cass including jewellery, guitar making, textiles, casting, leather work and upholstery, informed a family of human scale objects, designed by the students to enhance the streets of the East End.
These interpretations on the theme of street furniture made with the help of the Cassworks technical team are on show in the gallery space in Central House on the 18th December, from 5.30pm.
At a packed crit on the 11th December, staff and students from across the faculty were so impressed by the work on the project led by Aleks Catina that a decision to hold a public event was made.
The project is part of the interdisciplinary Huguenots of Spitalfields project at The Cass initiated by Gina Pierce of BA Textile design and coordinated by The Cass Projects Office.
