UG Architecture Studio 01: Building and Belonging
Holly Jean Crosbie, Kieran Wardle, Owain Williams
Exploring identity, place and belonging through proposing a new cultural anchor in a coastal town
UG Architecture Studio 02: Spaces of Birth – Spaces of Death
Charlotte Harris and Colin O’Sullivan
Times of birth and death represent the two most momentous times of our lives, and those of our families and friends. Often, the spaces where these events are played out are ill considered and show scant regard for what is happening inside, and here too, people’s power and agency is often disregarded. We will make proposals that suggest an alternative to the current norms. “I have now decided that…….. I’d like my death to be as interesting as my life has been.” David Bowie
UG Architecture Studio 03: SCHOOL OF EVERYDAY PRACTICE - Pedagogy of Play
Jane McAllister, Alex Somerville
Overview “The difference between play and what is regarded as serious employment should be not a difference between the presence and absence of imagination, but a difference in the materials with which imagination is occupied.” John Dewey ‘SCHOOL OF EVERYDAY PRACTICE’, will establish a sustainable platform to foster long-term knowledge exchange and growth for the village of Belmonte, Calabro. It will combine new industries with the everyday, initiate forms of playful governance.
UG Architecture Studio 04: The New Tenement
Fran Balaam, Ingrid Petit
This year the studio will design a new housing typology for Glasgow: A new tenement. We will look at the specific spatial characteristics of a home in the 21st Century city in a housing crisis, and how, in a commodified housing market, a typology can create a sense of community. We will help you develop a close understanding of materials, tectonics and construction methods with proposals that are practical, robust and tied to how people live

Theo Thysiades, Chris Smith, Spyros Kaprinis
