We are currently exploring the narrative of the 'Derelict', through an investigation that looks into sensory physical spaces and their communities and those who sit on the fringe. The aim of the year-long studio is to develop a thorough understanding of communities and materiality, in order to design meaningful spatial events.
The Kite Project
Telling Stories in the Sky was a one week project to sum up and rationalise the students’ concepts for their project. The aim was to capture the tensions and issues in one image that when flown would highlight the narrative of the derelict.
Project in progress: The students Year 2 and 3 are at the beginning of a project sited in E20 at Millennium Mills opposite Excel. The regeneration and re-energizing of urban spaces strives to embody a perceived community within its confines. A redevelopment often gentrifies an area, changing its heart and soul. The developers package a pre -ordained way of working, living and playing, agenda’s that do not always work within a given community. Our aim is to add the spirit of life and its unpredictable behaviours and using this energy to drive a design may embody a sense of belonging with those who interact with the spaces.
Students: Lousia Cole, Catarina Loureiro, Francesca Parpinel, Ewelina Ruminska, Shamma Al Ali, Shkendije Bajraktari, Julie Berdou, Veronica Buzgau, Jowita Chanowska, Enrique Santiago Gomez, Marek Jankovskij, Iliana Mitova, Alicja Mrowinska, Katie Underdown
