The Architecture Studio hosts a series of events with Hillingdon Play Association.
Date: 17 January 2014
Following Architecture Studio 3's successful series of events in December 2013, the studio won funding to host a further series of events along with Hillingdon Play Association at the Austin Estate, Hayes.
The events will develop their 'Conversation Kits' - furniture size objects to initiate 'conversations' with residents.
The events that are a result of the previous interactions with the 'Conversation Kits' inlclude:
- 'Austin Estate's Band' - A roaming band of instruments made by Austin Estate residents
- 'Wallpaper making workshop' - residents design their own wallpaper
- 'Austin Sewing Club' - first meeting of the new club
- 'Human Chess Game' - with the Hayes Chess Club
- These events inform the brief for the a new community space on the Austin Estate, to be designed by Architecture Studio 3 next Semester.
The events are being held jointly with Hillingdon Play Association, and have been funded by a Hillingdon Community Trust grant.
Studio 3 is the Live Projects Studio, this year continuing work in Hayes on the Austin Estate.
The events form part of a series which started last academic year.
