Studio Int 02: State of Independence Live Project
Kaye Newman and Janette Harris
The last few years has seen a significant growth of co-working spaces that operate in the adapted shells of buildings whose original purpose has become redundant. The premise of operating together with shared facilities seems to be a good economic model where different businesses can share the costs and in turn network, expanding business opportunities. However, what of the individual company, what of their identity – how does this manifest itself as separate and distinct entity?
Studio Int 03: Portraits D’Intérieurs
Cecilia Sjoholm and Iain Hales
Taking the notion ‘room portrait’ – the idea that a room may describe an individual as well as a portraitist might – the studio will develop designs for a series of rooms that are representative or evocative of a person, or a particular character, of each student’s choosing.
Studio Int 04: Im/Permeable
Andrew Siddall and Suzanne Smeeth-Poaros
The way we access cultural and public buildings is fundamental to our engagement with them: how familiar, comfortable and at ease we are within them, and the degree to which we feel a sense of ownership of them. We will focus on scenography: the site and building as an architectural stage set, choreographing immersive interactions and creating a ‘theatre of the everyday’.
Studio Int 05: Aberrant Architecture
Kevin Haley and Sam Brown
After 29 March 2019 the UK will have to re-think its identity and question who is Britain? This impending date marks our exit of the European Union and the start of a new chapter in British history. With every culture, sub-culture and tribe comes a unique set of identities, rituals, traditions, customs, myths and folklore.
