Studio 4

About the show

Work House

Studio 4 has been considering housing estates and how landscape can mediate between the private residence and the public realm of the city beyond. We have studied seminal housing precedents in London to explore how landscape can be used to integrate estates into the surrounding urban fabric.

During the year the studio has engaged with the incremental regeneration of the Aylesbury Estate in South London. Work House is concerned with the adaptive reuse of structures and territories on the estate to create places for work and public life amongst the vast swathes of housing. Read together our proposals suggest a new approach to the master plan based on fragments that respond to local and specific context.

Work House is preoccupied with notions of depth in the urban and architectural order. To explore this theme we have used screen printing and casting techniques to represent the layered landscapes and urban compositions that we have developed. The theme of threshold has been critical to our research and the studio has used collage as a means of exploring juxtaposed conditions.

To conclude and illustrate our findings students have proposed a new agora on the Aylesbury estate. A public space defined by the co-existence of formal and informal life that celebrates the depth of the city. The uncertain territory between retained fabric and proposed master plan is seen as an opportunity to create a common ground defined by spaces for work and civic engagement.
