Studio 2: The Shoreditch VIBE

App technology allows us to project our own files onto surfaces. Our work is contained with small screen interfaces and our physical office is either reduced or non-existent. By bringing our files into a 3D realm means that we will now physically react with them, moving and stretching, using our muscles and reflexes.

Show overview

The studio exhibition hopes to illustrate the innovative ways that space can be created and allocated to differing tasks and environmental requirements. The studio have been working within the Shoreditch Exchange, a building that houses the British Telecom exchange apparatus for the East End of London. 3000sqm of space is now vacant and looking to be re-energised. Shoreditch and Hoxton, have until recently escaped the interest of the developers who remove and rebuild bulk buildings of indistinctive type. The young and the creative saw a district that offered originality, raw materiality and a connection to its old industrial past. They were able to adapt these smaller studios and units into unique and inspiring places to work. Together with government initiatives to put money into these boroughs, Tech City was realized, encouraging all those with digital start-up companies to seek and share space. The Studio looked at nomadic working and at the autonomous office worker who is responsible for their own diary and space to meet and connect. As companies and individuals begin to grow use to sharing space this will allow new practices and working customs to now emerge. Conventional office furniture, partitions and store walls are now being questioned for their blandness, operatively successful but lack moments of quirkiness, difference, individuality and therefore pass on messages to those that in habitat this space of their associated qualities and career possibilities.

Start Up companies are springing up throughout Shoreditch, all serviced and built on a shoestring, but they envelop individuality and personality and therefore will support the development of new ideas, they encourage collaborative practices leaving space to talk and walk, to connect to the outside, the community and therefore re-emphasizing a sense of belonging.

Technology allows us to project desktops to reimagine the space
