The ‘Unspoken Revolution’ explores the narrative of the ‘Derelict’, spanning sensory physical spaces, communities and those who sit on the fringe. The translation of the research aims, through creative process, to develop social awareness and community practice. The understanding of personalities, of community and materiality will be explored and expressed through dynamic exercises for architectural and interior interventions.
The Hermitage on the ground Floor forms part of the 'Unspoken Revolution' studio. It encourages students to develop a sense of social responsibility. The project is in collaboration with Whitechapel Mission ‘Always the homeless first’, and BDG architecture + design. Our design outcomes aim to highlight, focus and punctuate the issues through materiality, action, haptic skills and meaningful imagery, in order to challenge the public perception of homelessness and raise a debate around the subject.
The Millennium Mills Project
The regeneration and re-energizing of urban spaces strives to embody a perceived community within its confines. A redevelopment often gentrifies an area, changing it’s 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. Adding the spirit of life and it’s unpredictable behaviors and using this energy to drive a design may embody a sense of belonging with those who interact with the spaces.
