Architecture + Spatial Design


Mourn

Progression – BA (Hons) Spatial Design, London College of Communication

Bashar Al-Bahlawan. Architecture Architecture for Mourning + Spatial Loss, mourning, and how humans deal with grief is a fascinating Design concept for me. This idea focuses

on the ‘wake’ ritual of a funeral – where the friends and loved ones of the deceased gather and talk about the memories they’ve had with that person. Humans are at their most vulnerable when dealing with such emotions and it’s a truly beautiful thing. I am quite intrigued about how the space involved with the ritual can affect such sensitive human emotions. I have designed a mourning space that acts as a stimulant to the negative emotions involved – the gritty, minimalistic atmosphere of the space forces you to feel and accept these emotions in order for you to move on.


Light

– Yuma Progression BA (Hons) Interior and Spatial Design, Chelsea College of Arts Aomatsu. Effect of Natural Light on Architecture The Place + Spatial When sunlight comes through wooden materials, it turns into gentle Design light to create warm atmosphere.

I remodelled the library at CSM to change the serious, academic space to a more stress-free one for the people working there using organic materials. The curvy shape is representing organic space like caves found in nature. This structure takes sunlight to the inside in daytime, so people can work comfortably in the natural light there. Then at night, we can see from outside of the building that the organic light is brightly alight inside, emitting a cosy ambience.


Body

– Young Soo Progression BA (Hons) Interior and Spatial Design, Chelsea College of Arts Bae. in the Body: Anatomy of Architecture Living Architecture + Spatial There’s no doubt about it, the human body is an infinite source of Design design inspiration, and the spine is

often at the core. By tipping, twisting and bending the spinal form, the designer can achieve interesting forms that can range from buildings to furnishings. My final outcome is an iconic and symbolic structure inspired from a human skeleton which is placed in the National History Museum. The structure is more like a big sculpture that people can walk through. This structure will give unforgettable experience for people.


Nature

– Ceri Progression BA Architecture, University of Manchester Baxter. Architecture Reconstructing Nature project focuses on the power + Spatial This that nature holds over man-made materials and its ability to reclaim Design objects in the built environment. I have designed a built form on a large scale in London that finds the balance between allowing nature to control and overwhelm it but at the same time welcomes it as part of its own structure. The aim is to improve the productivity of the workforce inside the office building as well as blurring the distinction between urban and natural in the immediate surroundings. I have responded to this issue by proposing an intervention that can exist as a platform between natural and synthetic, as well as tackling major common environmental issues found in cities like London such as air pollution.


Memorial

Progression – BA (Hons) Architecture: Spaces and Objects, Central Saint Martins

Sean Ying Ho Brown. A Memorial for the Living Architecture the next thirty years, all of the + Spatial Incemeteries in London will be full. is a problem that needs to be Design This addressed now by rethinking how

we house the dead. Imagine a cemetery that gives back to the city; a cemetery that provides life and conserves energy, while offering a space of reflection. By removing the bodies and urns but still maintaining a space to remember, we can redesign how a cemetery could be and what it can provide for people. This is possible through the use of a biodegradable urn, which allows the ashes of our loved ones to help facilitate the growth of a tree or plant.


Journey

Progression – BA (Hons) Architecture: Spaces and Objects, Central Saint Martins

Tanit Cabau-Wolf. Architecture A Journey Through Light My project is based on the idea of + Spatial the difference in light between two these being Mallorca Design locations, and London. When I arrived to

London, one of the biggest shocks I experienced was the difference in light between here and Mallorca, my home island. I took this as my starting point and decided to transform it into a journey through light. I started by comparing the light of both my chosen locations and through design development and idea generation I began to translate my findings into the design of a space and 3D models. The atmospheric effect and sensory appeal of my research made me design an installation at the Somerset House. Through further development and experimentation my design became a light experience which is represented with sea related images as these convey strongest the light difference between Mallorca and London.


Place

Progression – BA Architecture, University of Lisbon

Mafalda Cruz Gomes. Out of Place Architecture goal for this project was to explore + Spatial My the idea of the unexpected. After time spent on researching, I Design some came up with the idea to create an

outdoor cinema surrounded with a space where people can relax on the top of Aviva Tower. This space would be only for the workers of this building and particularly when the weather is great. This unexpected cinema will give the opportunity for workers to forget about their work for hour or two and relax in a completely different environment without stress and worries, enjoying the amazing views across the city. This space could also be used for lectures and important events that the company may want to do.


Reality

Progression – BSc Architecture, The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL

Joe Douglas. Digital and Alternative Realities Architecture separation of mind and body + Spatial The has long been a concern for and religion. From preDesign philosophy Cartesian dualism to the New Age

religions of today, we can now see this question being asked again with the growing use of Virtual Reality technology and the Internet. This desired disembodiment arguably exists when we occupy parallel spaces using programs such as Second Life. With this, much writing on the nature of cyberspace and the Internet believes activities such as blogging are a means of confession, owing to its lack of corporeality and heightened sense of anonymity. The space proposed is designed to embrace these technologies and their accompanying ‘alternate realities’, drawing on growing parallels between the Internet and the social and physical structures within religion. With its capacity for connectivity, communication, and symbolism, users will use this growing technology and space to engage with virtual worlds, projecting their visual creations and desires – unobtainable otherwise – onto the façades of the structure, viewable from street level. The resulting images of these objects, spaces and avatar-based relationships form the new symbols and artefacts of modern day desires. Here, Virtual Reality is the confession box. The Internet is the religion.


Fill

Progression – Decision Pending

Matthew Dunn. Fill In The Blanks Architecture In urban environments space is in high demand however voids still + Spatial remain and these have the potential more life and improved purpose. Design for The key concept of my project is

to fill these physical gaps in a way that benefits those in contact with them. The Brunswick Centre, Bloomsbury, London includes a ground floor shopping centre yet the rooftop of the shops remains empty and unused despite the large residential community living around it. My intervention exploits the opportunity for providing amenities for the residents including a garden – something scarce in central London, a covered structure and allotments, improving the sense of community and quality of life. A small bridge walkway transitions from rooftop garden to the busy street level below.


Cities

Progression – BA Architecture, University Of Westminster

Sam Fishenden. Cities In Nature Architecture The quest for the city in balance with + Spatial nature has almost certainly been of a dream of human fulfilment Design part since cities first emerged. This

project explores the relationship between nature and city life. Cities obscure nature but nature constantly surfaces whether it be on a derelict building or through the cracks in a brick wall. This body of work is purpose built to allow nature to grow and become part of the brutal structure. My proposal allows nature to be part of the structure and promotes the balance between nature and cities.


Farm

– Fion Fong. Progression BA (Hons) Architecture: Spaces and Objects, Central Saint Martins Architecture Tastes of Here and Now: + Spatial The An Urban Farming Typology Design Due to the overall increase of the

Earth’s temperature, as well as an increasing global population, future generations will feel the impact of a decreasing supply of food against an increasing demand unless this problem is addressed now. A large part of every human’s daily life is dedicated to food. This project aims to increase our understanding of what we eat, by using unused or underused spaces in the city to increase our proximity to the production process of food in urban environments. Step 1: Occupy natural and manmade land Step 2: Occupy space within the household Step 3: Occupy vertical space on the façades of buildings


Bus

– Sean Progression BA (Hons) Architecture: Spaces and Objects, Central Saint Martins Hamilton. Architecture Thinking Outside the Bus project consists on improving + Spatial My one’s journey from a door-to-door trip that entails walking from one’s Design origin to a bus stop, waiting for the vehicle to arrive, boarding it, traveling in the vehicle, exiting from the vehicle and then walking to the final destination. I preferred to focus on the time you spend waiting for the vehicle to arrive. Space was a big issue that I needed to work around with; making me look beyond ‘just’ designing a bus stop. I needed to manipulate the street to form more space without disturbing the movement of the traffic.


Adapt

– Shu-Ming Progression BA (Hons) Architecture: Spaces and Objects, Central Saint Martins Hung. Architecture Biomimicry and Adaptation theme was inspired by the + Spatial This book Biomimicry in Architecture, by Michael Pawlyn. The idea Design behind biomimicry is to mimic

the functional basis of biological forms, processes and systems to produce sustainable solutions. My chosen site is Piccadilly Circus. What captivated me about this site was the circulation and movement. I wanted to design an additional resting space and entertainment area to this site in order to maximise the functionality and use of the space. Specifically, I integrated the aspect of biomimicry through the use of circulation and organic forms that are found in shells. My final proposal comes in two parts: a resting bench and an entertainment screen.


Wonder

Progression – BA (Hons) Interior Architecture, University of Westminster

Stella Idomenea. Architecture Experience the Wonder of Light To hurried and stressed people + Spatial (most London workers) who are King’s Cross on a daily basis Design visiting to go to their work/school/university,

everything around them seems grey and monotonous. My aim through this installation is to add a ‘splash’ of colour to an old, abandoned and unpleasant site which called Coal Drops. By using coloured acrylic in angular shapes and sunlight I have creating a new soothing pathway which provides a journey through colour. The movement of the sun provides a changing composition of bright colour shadows and different colour combinations for each hour of the day. This installation invites viewers to interact with coloured reflections, to take pictures, to rest under the acrylic shelter and stand under rainbow coloured reflections.


Exposed

Progression – BA (Hons) Interior & Spatial Design, Chelsea College of Arts

Eri Kodama. Architecture + Spatial Exposed Ducting Music is a great communication Design tool. We can communicate with

other people through music instead of language. I started thinking of creating a live venue and communication space. I designed a live venue using ducting. The ducts carry air and therefore sound. The speakers are made from ducting. The other interior is a conversation pipe. It works like a string telephone, so people can talk between floors. I hope my space makes people smile.


Naked

Progression – BA (Hons) Architecture: Spaces and Objects, Central Saint Martins

Shutong Lin. Architecture Naked Architecture This project focuses on the + Spatial relationships between humans, and nature. The Design architecture, aim of the project is to create

environmentally sensitive living architecture. My chosen site is the City of London walls. My proposal is to create vertical gardens near fragments of the ancient wall which will filter the air of pollutants such as pm10s. In this way, they bring the historical threshold of the wall into the future as an environmental threshold. To give people a sense of belonging to the natural world in the city, the form of the structure imitates roots. Following a Chinese saying, “life begins and ends at the roots”, my hope is that these structures will live, as the city does.


Exposure

Progression – BA (Hons) Architecture: Spaces and Objects, Central Saint Martins

Cüliye Mazrek. Architecture Exposure and Materiality + Spatial project aims to boost the Design This development of East London’s

Broadway Market, connecting the growing community and also allowing the citizens to grow their relationship both with nature and the site. Broadway Market is becoming very similar to Shoreditch, a hot spot in London where you really feel the London life. The old run-down gas factory situated in the area will replace itself with a study centre both for children and young adults. The centre is more than a place that people will come to study for; it is rather like a day out where you can engage yourself in various different activities. The site has very little interaction between its wider environment, for example with Regents Canal and the community, which is why this project will increase both interaction and interest in the area.


Society

– Iona Progression BSc Sociology, London School of Economics and Political Science McCreath. Architecture Architecture Society aim of my project is to create + Spatial The a space that promotes cultural integration and positive interaction. Design I want to increase understanding between communities and challenge the stereotypes created in our societies today. My proposed location is Uhuru Park in Nairobi, a green space in the heart of Kenya. Due to politics of divide and rule, tribalism has been one of the main problems in nation building as politicians have manipulated communities with negative stereotyping. I want to create a space, which unites people, a space that each of them can relate to, so I have used common cultural reference points, which give comfort unconsciously.


Silent

Progression – Decision Pending

Teresa Rego. Silent City Architecture My film is about a city I used to my city, Lisbon. + Spatial under-appreciate, After spending nine months in a country I started to see the Design different incredible beauty in this place and

now I would like to share it with you. Through this film I would like for you to experience what is like to live in Lisbon and to see all its amazing potential. I call it Silent City because I’m showing you a city with no noise, no distractions, just silence and for me music is the most beautiful form of silence that has ever existed.


Geometry

– Nour Progression Decision Pending Semmar. Geometry vs. Nature Architecture The concept is to represent how and nature are both + Spatial geometry dependent on one another when it comes to buildings. The shape of Design the building is inspired by nature

as the theme is inspired by ‘light’, ‘sun’ etc. The geometry aspect of it is circular. The combining of both gives it more sense and strength. The building is supposed to be an art Gallery hosting modern art work from upcoming artists giving them the opportunity to shine. The making of the model is quite interesting as you can see the procedure and steps that takes it from being on a Geometric form all the way until becoming a shaped form of nature.


Ruins

– Maryam Progression BSc Urban Planning, Design & Shariff. Management, The Bartlett, UCL Architecture Ruins + Spatial Ruins analyses the inevitable rise and fall of urbanised regions, as a waste Design product of defunct economic and

industrial processes. The idea that with “every utopian dream stands another recalling industrial decline, environmental disaster and war”, acts as the central concept for the project, focusing on the temporary state where we are able to assess what was before and predict what could be. Through the mimicry of spatial configurations and urban topography I communicate my interpretation of modern ruins through diagrammatic drawings, visuals and models. The outcomes act as sustainable short-term spatial solutions for derelict urban environments in juxtaposition with green futures.


Stilts

– Preston Progression Decision Pending Shwed. City On Stilts Architecture My ideas for this project have taken turns during the process, I + Spatial awasfeworiginally inspired by a trip I had taken to Houston Texas, USA. Design During my trip I was devastated

to learn that one of my favourite places to visit had been destroyed by a recent hurricane. I decided to research into housing that could possibly be able to withstand a hurricane. While searching a bit deeper I came across a fascinating concept of how London will flood, even showing how London would look once it is under water, It gave me an idea to find another use for London once it is no more. My final piece is a concept for a select amount of villas that would be located over Westminster. I imagined these villas to be half residential and half rental and would attract a wide variety of people.


Small

Progression – BArch Architecture, Glasgow School of Art

Ben Stone. Architecture + Spatial Small Spaces Under the title of Small Spaces, I Design intended to find ways of addressing

large population densities, the high price of (city) land and city growth. I utilised two crossing rail bridges in Loughborough Junction as part of an armature structure for my design. Three publicly open platforms constructed with shared spaces for residents (cooking/ dining and washing/toilet facilities) allow for small, self-build residential developments which progress a structure that doesn’t compromise neighbouring industrial land. The structure grows as the population does and has the potential to adapt to changing demands. The imagined lifestyle engages in a tightly strung and diverse community.


Transition

Progression – BA (Hons) Architecture, London Metropolitan University

Laiqah Tariq. Transition Architecture is a major change + Spatial Transition involving reaction, interaction and I have achieved this by Design adaptation. exploring a chosen site, Waterloo.

The area has many attractions. I looked at people circulating from one attraction to another. Using the site analysis I chose the specific South Bank Centre area as there is a bridge and two alternative staircases on either ends to go from the South Bank terrace to the walkway. The outcome is to create an extra pathway platform and multi-functional net installation to relax and enjoy yourself on.


Life

Progression – Decision Pending

Ege Tarlakazan. Life on Water Architecture My project is based on a scenario may happen in the future. + Spatial that With global warming the water are rising. These rising water Design levels levels may force us to find different

places to live because the cities we live in now may be flooded in the future. My project is about imagining how it will be to live in a flooded world. This project is my own interpretation of this scenario. It is little bit science fiction, a little bit abstract and utopian, but it is an idea which some of us often dream of. And this is my dream city.


Teleport

Progression – Decision Pending

Kseniia Usenko. The Phenomenon of Teleportation Architecture Have you ever thought what kind of life happens behind the corner, + Spatial and how fascinating it could be? you change your route and Design Will turn over the corner during the walk

through Oxford Street or Regent Street? My project is twofold: it is an opportunity to find more about London, and it relieves the city from the crowd by dispersing people, especially tourists, to the less visited streets and areas. My structures were designed to draw peoples’ attention from the overcrowded streets to the empty streets which usually have more life than the ones many tourists go to. Everyone can be guided by signs placed on the corners. By following them you can become aware of the inner life of the city, its essence, the variety of characters. Step by step you start to create your own profile for London.


Prison

Progression – Decision Pending

Kellin Wang. The Politics of Prison Architecture Architecture “The church, the state, the school, the magazine, think they are all + Spatial liberal and free! It is the freedom of prison yard…” – Thoreau. Design aImprisonment does not end at the prison gates. This project captures normally intangible conflicts between rules and choice in physical space. When we stop seeing them by how they look and begin to see them as they have been designed or used, our physically sound world becomes distorted and unfamiliar. How might we then claim this space between what our ‘architecture’ – physical, social, spiritual – is conceived to be and how we occupy it? Do we need to? Who, or what, exists there?


Decay

Progression – BA (Hons) Architecture: Spaces and Objects, Central Saint Martins

Alèxia Iborra Wicksteed. Decaying Seaside Architecture decay of the seaside is now + Spatial The happening all over the world and is being done. For my Unit 7 Design little project, I wanted to go further.

The area of the abandoned factory in Badalona, is suffering from a natural decay of the soil and has now become an important social threshold. Through urban planning I am reducing the impact of erosion on all man made existing structures, making the location more accessible for the population. In my intervention, I am trying to be objective: creating a large platform view and covering the towers with a vertical garden.


Time

the Neolithic Era. The gravity of the world has changed and making it possible for houses to be floating in the sky. Each district has a station where you can plug-in your houses for example if you are in Tokyo and your friends are in Las Vegas. You just simply transfer your houses to the station and plug-in. Station is something similar to a hub where you connect with people around the world.


Breath

– Riichiro Progression BA (Hons) Architecture: Spaces and Objects, Central Saint Martins Yamamoto. Architecture Breath in New Life project aims to breathe in new + Spatial This life to old dead spaces through renovation. The location of the Design project is at the church of St. Dustan

in the East which was damaged by the Great Fire of 1666 and enemy action in The Blitz. Through the project, the contrast of old and new is shown in the modern glassy roof and old stoney wall of the church. The roof is designed to collect rain and make a small waterfall directed into the existing fountain in the centre of the church. On the one side of the wall the shape of the original church is cut out to show its absence and commemorate its existence.


Animal

Yao Zixin. Architecture and Animal + Spatial Biomimicry Morphology Design In its simplest definition, biomimicry

is design inspired by natural systems and materials. Poorly translated, this could mean anything from a building shaped like a bird to a coat rack in the form of a tree’s branches. My final structural model was informed by the surface texture of sea urchins. Spine tubes on the surface with hydroponics plants are one way we can save resources and provide more interesting natural spaces for visitors. My structural model is of a special green house in Greenwich park that can make people feel more relaxed and comfortable.

This will be achieved by clients installing their given function within the specific frame of the space and shall remain on site annually. In this case phase one is provided by using recycled materials sourced from its location whereas phase two would introduce a new set of ideas to allow the structure to function.
