Foreword This year sees yet another bumper crop of beguiling and engaging projects from both the BSc and MArch Architecture cohorts. The ‘new’ building (4ES) is no longer quite so new and has started to gain a certain patina of use which has made it start to feel a little be more like ‘home’. Students from all years seem to have adopted the new spaces with relish and the accompanying new workshop facilities have been more fully utilised this year with the resultant models being a standout feature of the final reviews. This year saw the 6th Year masterplan sites opened up to the entire world (rather than just Europe) and several groups took advantage of this, visiting Havana and Cape Town as well as the equally exotic, Tromsø in northern Norway. This year’s 4th year saw an in-depth investigation of the south coast around Weymouth with both the Basil Spence project and the individual projects set there. As a consequence of this extended exposure the richness and engagement with place evident in the individual projects, in both degrees, is tangible and has resulted in proposals which span a spectrum of briefs and programmes yet maintain an attitude to genius loci which demonstrates that an appropriate contextual response can be derived from as many different sources and be as varied as the student body itself. At a time when the institution at large is trying to deal with the uncertainties associated with a move into the unknown we hope that the work presented here is a polemic that demonstrates that the future can be brighter and much more socially engaged for the good of all those people for whom our students will be entrusted to design buildings – they will do a fantastic job!

Tutor’s 4th Year Intro “Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible” - Frank Zappa There are two projects shown here: The first, entitled Techne, explored our collective relationship to notions of craft, through the means of a demountable exhibition pavilion. Set on the site of an abandoned ferry terminal in Weymouth, this project was conducted in groups of architects and engineers. The second, entitled Forgotten Voices represents ninety-two individual students’ interpretations of the theme located in and around Weymouth and the Isle of Portland. The briefs and sites were formulated, fermented and dreamed into being by each student themselves. There is a third project however, in many ways this was and is the project - one that is altogether more ontological. What can architecture be, what does it mean, where are we each going and what do we each stand for (and for some, ‘what the hell am I doing’)? In other words, for everyone involved the work show had and has a very personal investment. The thoughtful, sensitive, iconoclastic, eclectic, and enchanting range of proposals unfolded here stand for a year group that in following Frank Zappa’s assertion……. deviated. In so doing the journeys (or let’s call them dérives) took us all to lost places, new places and unexpected places – a wonderful process. Whilst the projects themselves have now been handed in (despite the vagaries of pdf compressions, computer crashes and deprivations too numerous to mention), this is where we start rather than end. As my old mate, C.G. Jung would say ‘every individual is an exception to the rule’ to which we might add, every individual is exceptional. 4th Year - I will miss each and every one of you Martin Gledhill 4th Year Studio ‘Potato’

Student 4th Year Intro “…and then we realised that this wasn’t the finishing line, but a new start instead.” This book represents the conclusion of our beginning, but also the start of something new. It reflects our excitement, eagerness and confidence. But also at times our panic, apathy and doubt. Every experience becomes richer when we acknowledge all aspects of the journey, and what a journey it has been. In this book you’ll find the final year’s work of every graduating student of the class of 2018. Semester 1 honed our skills whilst semester 2 solidified them. Every project represents a personal journey into the unknown. We all began the year not quite realising what to expect, but we have left it with new ideas and attitudes thanks to our collaborations with one another. Speaking on behalf of such a diverse and enigmatic year group is a difficult task. Yet it is these celebrated differences that brought us to become such a close community. Our energy to do more, not only for ourselves but also for others was what made this year so memorable. The unfaltering support from student to student constructed optimism and hope that stayed until the end. We fostered encouragement, resulting not only in strong projects but even stronger friendships. Sonya Falkovskaia Graduating 4th year student

Basil Spence 4th Year Group Project The annual Basil Spence project came and went before we realised. A whirlwind of debate and discussion, the project definitely proved a challenge that should not be underestimated. It holds core to its value the collaborative working between architects and engineers to produce work that neither could do without the creative and genuine input of the other. The work produced this year certainly reveals this to be true. An assortment of truly varied projects were produced despite all projects having the same brief. The work you see is a response to the old ferry site of Weymouth, where we have proposed 30 different ‘temporary exhibition pavilions’ to celebrate craft and the love of making. What ‘craft’, ‘exhibition’, or even ‘temporary’ meant certainly varied from group to group, but this was what created such a diversified outcome. It was a project where nothing was off limits and everything was to play for, a true expression of what our year could do in combined effort with one another. Above all it is a celebration of teamwork, the formation of new partnerships and an appreciation for the strength that a multidisciplinary team can bring.

Palimpsest María Villalobos Mark Kendernay Alejandro Fernandez Shona Virden Vincent Cutler Today’s conception of temporality and waste means there is a mentality of dichotomies: the old and the new, the beginning and the end, the useful and the useless. This project explores the in-between: the ambiguity of the incomplete (I), the transience of the process (II), and the contingency of time (III).

Group 1

I: The Incomplete Exhibition An exhibition showcasing the incompleteness of making and its reliance on time by combining workshop with exhibition spaces. II: The Transient Field A transient field of found, made, and enhanced structures, in which the difference between the “new” and the “old” is blurred. III: The Flooded Ruin A structure that ages and adapts with the contingency of the sea.

Group 2

The Bioneer Project aims to provide a creative and exciting solution to the problem of oceanic plastic pollution, in the hope that a difference can be made, before the environmental damage becomes irreversible. The architectural proposal is a temporary, demountable exhibition centre, constructed entirely from biodegradable materials. Furthermore, once the useful life of the building comes to an end, the demountable structure enables easy disassembly and removal for composting. In short, the building will leave no trace. The exhibition itself, through its content, education programmes and architecture, intends to promote a culture change from a single-use, throwaway attitude to one of social and environmental consciousness. The end target is to make Weymouth the first ‘plastic-free’ seaside town, both in the ocean, as well as in local retailers, whilst also engaging with the local community to ensure the legacy of the project continues long after the exhibition is gone.

Group 3

A turning point signifies a change in direction - but does not reveal the direction itself. This is a pavilion of turning points, exhibiting the process of making through a journey of trial and error. The pavilion is an ode to the design process. It holds exhibitions of a selected design product and all of its preceding prototypes. The design process is something that everyone in one form or another encounters, yet to define it proves near impossible. Perhaps this is because it is unpredictable and unexpected. A journey with a start but never an end, forever seeking to develop and improve. To translate this into space, the ideas of form and circulation have been questioned. An experience where the route is suggested but not controlled. The pavilion is an exhibition space for products excelling in the field of design. It travels around the United Kingdom every 6 months, constantly evolving just as the process of design does.

4 Weymouth Anticline

Basil Spence

Edwin Law Travis Moy, Napatn Pattanapeeradej Q Yu Sam Minall Anticline is a type of fold that is shaped in to an arch from compression of tectonic plates pushing towards each other and compresses upwards. We are inspired by the land on which Weymouth is located: the anticline. By representing the land-form feature, our structure will remind us the earth we are standing on and what created the nice sheltered beach of Weymouth and exposed the famous Portland stone, an important resource in the area.

Group 4

Weymouth has been one of the most popular summer tourist destinations in the United Kingdom. The area has ample of natural resources and sights, but lacks a large multi-purpose public gathering spot. We are proposing such a space at the end of the Weymouth Beach. We wish to provide a long lasting monumental structure to the city of Weymouth, and hence we propose a canopy supported by large span Portland Stone masonry arches.

Group 5

Economic decay in coastal towns was primarily caused by a reduction in industry following the industrial revolution, and the drop in tourism due to affordable air travel. Weymouth and many other coastal towns are left with only one industry. Dying industry has also left a host of derelict structures on our site. This creates zones of disuse which contributes further to the social and economic decline. Our scheme is focused around using craft as a tool to rejuvenate struggling coastal towns, and is an investigation of the four typologies of nomadic architecture: Found, Mobile, Demountable, Ephemeral. Our strategy is to create a plethora of nomadic workshops which become a tool for the education and application of craft in the community, whilst also creating an event/spectacle attracting visitors to the site. Whilst the scheme is inhabiting the site the workshops will also provide resources to renovate the existing structures on the site into permanent community workshops.

6 PNEUMA

Basil Spence

Latifa Alkhayat Agata Nguyen Chuong Jules Kleitman Matteo Attanasio Dan Crook-Sycamore Our interpretation of the brief revisits and celebrates the symbiotic relationship of the maker and the machine through the focus on prosthetics. A prosthetic attached to a body operates as a meta-device, which aids to refuel a lost or diminished creative force, which in turn enables craft.

The proposal comprises the promenade, where rehabilitation and research takes place, the pneumatic hall for sports training and the sailing viewing platform. The pneumatic hall is composed as a frame from which a translucent ETFE canopy is hung. By means of pulleys and pleats, the canopy changes its shape in order to provide different environments.

Group 6

This celebration of cyclical craft is configured as “prosthetic architecture� in a deployable structure that has the ability for endless reconfiguration, provoking to think of the consciousness of a machine crafting itself.

Our proposal seeks to re-inflate the lost vital spirit (pneuma) of the site; by acting as social prosthetic, the pavilion will advance the current technologies for prosthetics benefiting both Paralympians and local disability groups. The scheme addresses the disparity of awareness about Paralympians and Olympians and aims to provide an environment for the disabled or amputee to be nurtured and encouraged to embrace their otherness.

Our scheme seeks to address the declining number of valuable material specialists through: creating a community based project, changing perceptions of metal craft, and providing the facilities for a practical approach to learning through making. The intrinsic demountable nature of steel framed buildings is key to our proposal which involves 3 key elements: the boat, the temporary structure and the permanent building. The boat brings the materials and creates a link with other deprived coastal towns. The temporary structure creates a community hub for the construction of the permanent building. The permanent building remains in Weymouth to provide a series of metalwork workshops and studios for the local community. The scheme is designed to then be implemented in other coastal locations.

8 The Craf t Behind Code

Basil Spence

Leah Davis Victoria Guscott Claire Wilkinson Emily Lo Emily Seabrook The ultimate aim of the project was to give Weymouth an attraction that enticed visitors all year round as well as engaging and educating the local residents. The exposition will travel around the UK to areas in decline to help with regeneration programs, spending two years in each place. These requirements meant the building needed a rapid construction sequence with minimal ground works before arrival.

Group 8

The visitors first learn about the history and progress to modern coding, they enter into a dystopian space showcasing the future of code which evokes feelings of unease as coding changes our everyday lives. The final space is for discussion about the future of code and has a flexible layout for various functions and competitions. Finally the scheme provides spaces for young or unemployed residents to learn code and to apply their skills in new creative ways, shaping the future of technology.

Creating an extension from the old pavilion to show a gradient of transition from managed to unmanaged play. There will be individual spaces to house different mediums of expression which are all connected by a translucent central archival body. The spaces follow a choreography of displacement along a grid and respond to the seasonal aspect of the town. Performance is the medium of play and the people become the exhibition. The central body acts as a contemporary archive which records and preserves all creative processes done within Exprimere. The archive sustains an experimental environment for critical inquiry, artistic research, and public dialogue.

Its aim is to offer a comprehensive view of the activity within Exprimere as well as to be a hub for creative interaction. The entrance to Exprimere consists of a water ha-ha diverging the visitors to enter from a central point. The landscape is composed of three environments as well as separating multi-functional groynes. The landscape rejuvenates the peninsula making it an ‘island of play.’ It holds the potential for many theatre reconfigurations and is activated during the summer mode with the six spaces expanding out onto it.

Group 10

By 2050, it is estimated that the planet will need 20% more freshwater than is currently available, and although 71% of the earth’s surface is covered by ocean, saltwater is not being treated effectively to address this. Therefore, Aqua-Salis proposes a desalination plant in Weymouth, which will provide 2.25 million litres of freshwater a day. The scheme begins with a processional route through the reverse osmosis desalination process, accompanied by laboratories streamlining the procedure. A secondary element of the scheme -a demountable salt exhibition- channels brine through an exposition exploring salt’s rich history as a global commodity. The brine will be guided into a landscape of salt pans, activating the peninsula whilst allowing for harvesting by local industries. The scheme will investigate a new era in Weymouth’s relationship with the sea and encourage a new identity for the town as a community at the forefront of desalination research and technology.

BIOMEMESIS aspires to reveal nature’s ingenuity in making, by showcasing biomimetic technology. A vision of modern day technology is suggested where the relationship between nature and technology is ultimately revaluated. The SEED arrives in Weymouth as a symbol of arrival of hope and new life; It then unfurls to its surroundings, shaped by the tangible and intangible influencing forces - site, social context, temporariness. The seed breaks out and grows along the arterial routes, the central space then cradles and witnesses of appreciation of nature. The empty Seed pod becomes an incubator of knowledge and imagination - the building itself is a honest expression of biomimetic technology. The traveling pavilion hopes to draw people into a new vision, and spark the imagination of a new generation of scientists and environmentalists.

With the abandonment of one of its main sources of economy and culture, the identity and role of Weymouth within the local community is in question. The Harbour is key to the social reinvention of the town’s image, and our proposal for revival aims to forge a connection between Weymouth and the world around it. We identified the project theme of making as a continuous evolving process, deconstructing it into three stages: growth, decay, and regeneration. A cycle that permeates all aspects of our life, we sought to address this on both a personal level, as well as in wider context, engaging with a diverse audience. Consequently, our pavilion is an exhibition presenting the making of society. In our research, we identified characteristics shared across all established civilisations, and constructed a narrative of the contributions to the rise and fall of a society.

We talked about technology and the machine age in our scheme and felt that a more personal approach to technology is essential. Our discussions lead our project to take the form of a digital fabrication lab. The whole building resembles a piece of modern technology, looks simple from the outside but more complex on the inside. The main aspect of the building is the Fablab which is over four floors, containing machinery such as CNCs, 3D printers, electronics and robotics. As for the exhibition, the visitor undertakes a journey through different methods of craft, then entering the experience pods and journeying across the harbour to the fort side. The building moves and transitions through its gondola system, articulating a cyclical relationship between the nature and manmade.

The Shadow Librar y Sasha McKinlay Sacha Moreau Dan Innes Corey Lawes Brendan Chadwick The Shadow Library strives to challenge the ageing industry of Weymouth by inspiriting the lost craft of storytelling. The ‘library’ echoes the archetypal act of exchanging one’s stories over a campfire; within the embracing arms of the dark, the edge of the den circumscribed only by the flickering light of the fire. The Shadow Library is a cross between a kaleidoscope, a music box and a picture book. It is the travelling Bard: a story teller, verse-maker and composer; safeguarding and celebrating the common voice. Most importantly, The ‘Library’ allows visitors to be both author and reader, driver and passenger, audience and performer. At the core of the scheme is the stage, where the ‘stage’ encircles the audience. Layers of sliding frames containing fragments of scenes, move around the audience on rails, five story-lines, to the spell of music. They avoid one another, slide past and intersect; the story is found in the sum and the spaces in between.

The intent of Material Projections is to digitally reconstruct the entire cartographic documentation of the UK. Digitisation liberates the physical object of its locational confines and eternalises the information contained within.

Group 16

Cartography, as an assembly of scientific, political and cultural motivations, becomes the vehicle for challenging the established bias of analogue media by demonstrating the collective craft of digital information. Parallel to the processional deconstruction of the map, accompanying exhibition spaces reveal the uncovered information and the outcome of subsequent analysis by resident curators. In displaying physical manifestations of the extracted data, the digital realm achieves a tangibility over the course of the Exposition.

A showcase of imported materials and goods from overseas and how these promoted economical and industrial growth.

This influenced the coming about of the industrial revolution, where machines processed vast amounts of imported new materials at rates not possible before the invention of steam power. The final aspect is the digital revolution, where people no longer make things with their hands, but instead the whole design process is done on a computer and then sent off to be laser cut or 3D printed. In some cases the human element is eliminated all together and the process is completely automated.

The project seeks to rediscover what our pioneers and experts have spent countless days and nights to design our every day technologies - by showcasing sections of daily objects and revealing how they were made. These are the skills, knowledge, creativity and technology used to craft these items that we rarely, if ever, appreciate. Thus, the scheme aims to display and celebrate the hidden side of making - its thought processes, skills and theories behind as well as the mechanisms that make them work. This is reflected both through the programme of the exhibition centre as well as the architecture of it - a building that displays what it is made of and how it is made. In essence, the ‘craft’ that is showcased is that of the building itself.

Lucid / Ludic is an exhibition looking to re-engage the public with the art of craft by taking an individual through the journey of a specific craft process - brewing. The scheme at ground level fosters an intuitive, explorative approach to learning. Rotating fins offer everchanging views into the tank rooms while the landscape surrounding the blocks indicates the ingredients relating to each process. At first floor level the exhibition route is directed along a meandering bridge, paying homage to the linear nature of the brewing process. On entering each block, the process occurring inside is explained clearly while the environmental condition of each process is experienced. Selling beer brewed both in the exhibition and local craft breweries, the bar allows the public to enjoy a drink with a greater appreciation for the process that created it while continuing Weymouth’s historic brewing heritage.

Transient programme - Due to the size of Weymouth we felt a massive programme would not be appropriate but we wanted to still achieve a diverse range of functions. This was achieved by putting our accommodation onto train carriages, this utilised and expanded on the existing rail infrastructure on the site to provide flexible functionality. Public square with activated edges - The carriages were then placed into stages, similar to those found in a town centre (public square, marketplace etc). Anchors of the space to the site - To anchor the accommodation in the site we created two internal stages for the functions, the arena and the tram station. Shelter to unify the elements - The internal spaces and the square were then unified with the fabric canopy that covered the scheme.

Kabuis Joe Ridealgh Tess Hillan Ciara Hunter Egle Kaleckaite Hristo Vasilev Lana Harding Our design proposal is a public workshop which allows users to fuse theoretical and practical skills through the design and build of timber houses. The intention of the workshop is to teach and produce in tandem, encouraging everyone to make use of the open facilities. We looked to the accommodation carriage on a train, the ‘kabuis’, as a precedent of transportable, compact living. The workshop is intended to provide a basic single shell unit that is transported to site via rail and fitted out on site. By restricting the size of the houses in the workshop to carriage dimensions, the disused rails on Weymouth’s commercial pier will be given a new life. The linear plan follows the process of wood being cut in its raw form through the workshops to the finished timber home. Logs will arrive via the rails to be cut, seasoned and used in the workshops.

Kyriacos Christofides Tim Scott Swati Agarwal Obumnaeme Nnajiofor Ting Ho Romana Melova Our proposal aims to explore the notions of nostalgia and infinite whilst celebrating the memories of traditional craft arts. A demountable pavilion is configured as a ‘head and tail’ building that essentially built itself. The ‘head’ is conceived as a mobile factory which arrives by sea much as a boat would. This enigmatic visitor then generates a series of pavilions that establish an exhibition promenade to and from the host town.

PodCraf t Tiffany Cheung Marie de Bryas Kabilan Selva Jack Harris Steph Malyon The aim of our scheme is to celebrate traditional craft and to spark a new interest into green woodworking and all its related pursuits. The project encourages a renewed integration with nature and a more personal connection with both the material and tools used to create objects. With the ondemand and mass- produced society we live in today, little personal investment is spent on the objects we use. We believe there is a tremendous deal of satisfaction that can be gained from the creation of simple objects using our hands. To spread this belief, our project serves as both an exhibition space and workshop, interweaving both these elements so that the public can see both the final product and the process of creation seamlessly. The building is constructed based on a square grid from a pallet of components to achieve a modular system for simple fabrication.

Technology is both a means to an end and a human activity. However, after the industrial revolution, the boost of technology accelerated the formation of the metropolis. The metropolis works like a giant machine where every individual is just a component to keep the machine operating. Differing from the inhospitable city, an ‘enchanting machine’ is developed to host artists, craftsmen and visitors to celebrate traditional hand-making techniques. The main purpose of the building is to form an ‘Artropolis’ for people and their daily activities. By inviting artists and craftsman from all over the world, we want to create a rich and animated space, where people are gathering at the centre spontaneously with various activities occurring simultaneously.

Sand is one of earth’s raw materials that perhaps forms our earliest memories of making; the human ability to invent and create. Mankind’s ingenuity and instinctive need to create has remained constant while the tools for making have evolved and modernised with new technologies. We want to change the populist perception of craft and make people re-asses what it means to them. We live as consumers within our world, seemingly unconcerned by how the material world around us has been made. Raw materials are created by the earth and altered beyond recognition into everyday products; we are very removed from the natural resources we use every day. Auguries of Sand celebrates the transformation humans can facilitate and reminds us of the materials which are at the foundations of the products we own.

Weymouth’s history is centred around the development of its port industry and as a seaside resort. It was the water that once attracted people to Weymouth. Yet, as with many seaside towns it is has been almost forgotten. The fault line between land and sea requires renewing to reignite the fundamental relationship that gives the town status as a coastal destination. Harnessing the edge, our pavilion blurs the border and allows people to occupy the once segregating threshold. A large timber grid shelf roof structure delicately spans the length of the pier offering visitors a sheltered space to interact with the element. Cutting through the building is a large processional route down into the sea; a physical connection blurring the edge. It invites the sea onto the land, acting as an exhibition that showcases the power of nature craft whilst rock pools are formed and seaweed and creatures take over.

We are proposing a centre for those suffering with anxiety and depression, to combat the psychological side-effects of a declining economy. The centre floats entirely on water, consisting of a series of different-sized barges connected around a central pontoon system, which represents the healing journey. In our centre, visitors can engage in ‘soulcrafting’, through the medium of water, allowing them to reconnect mind and body. The scheme provides a variety of healing activities, both wet and dry, for those who need temporary or long-term relief. Our scheme naturally divides into three strands, which all connect together to create a cohesive community. The connective routes interlink all spaces, large and small, and transport visitors along their healing paths. The collective spaces allow visitors to congregate and unite in their struggle to find themselves. The individual meditation pods act as safe havens for members to find solitude and achieve mindfulness.

FORGOT TEN VOICES 4th Year Individual Project A forgotten voice is something to lament, but for this project, not a single scheme went unnoticed. Everyone has something powerful to say, about their own truth or the truth of something they believe in. The following projects reveal a truth from every individual in this year’s cohort. Regardless of the typology, size or location, each and every scheme carries a personal affectation from its author. This is what made our final semester so special. We each decided how to carry out this final project, and what it would mean to each and every one of us. Our theme was ‘Forgotten Voices’. A starting point, referencing the current socio-political climate that we often find ourselves in, or more often, avoiding. Despite the theme not being a focal point of the semester, its sensitive roots held deep, and its influence could be felt across the spectrum of projects. The Greater Dorset area was our playground, including the uncanny Isle of Portland. Each project has chosen a specific site, from which a project grew. Every aspect of the project was up for discussion, nothing fixed in stone. This was what allowed us to develop our own agendas and to pursue our own interests. The combination of enigmatic landscapes and esoteric themes divulged a group of projects that were bold not only in their initial impression but remained audacious in their realisations. These projects speak of our year’s energy - the desire to challenge what is expected of us and to do even more. Certainly here, no voice was forgotten.

The Bifröst Anton Vatev vatev.anton@gmail.com By engaging with the themes of dignity and catharsis of work, this project investigates the existing limitations and opportunities in the contemporary architecture of working spaces. It explores the relationship between people, the work they undertake on a daily basis and the place where all of this happens in order to reveal the actual dynamic behind the frequently overlooked process of labour. Despite the increasing popularity and importance of ‘humane’ working environments, designers often sacrifice comfort in favour of financial efficiency, leading to shocking results such as the ‘cubicle’. The aim of this thesis is to find the balance between those two opposing sides of comfort and efficiency in order to set a new paradigm for office architecture. The thesis investigates the architect’s role in the definition of people’s working habits by addressing the architectural conditions of the individual and the collective in the context of the workplace.

The corner house attempts to communicate over a number of different channels, also accommodating a radio station, debating spaces and a forum.

The world beneath the isle is a vast information source of hidden specimens, replete with a fraction of the world’s unearthed entities, and preserving their physical heritage, within a constantly data-driven environment, becomes a major concern. Data is a means of preserving material objects on an immaterial database, halting the pursuit of time in decay and loss. Geology sits perched on the earth’s crust, stretching deeper to its core, occupying an otherworldly metaphysical realm that is beyond the scope of our perception, and in a future where the cohabitation between man and machine lies within the confines of a physicalised digital realm, a digital geological archive and research facility aims to preserve our relationship to the information held within these forgotten landscapes.

Understanding music’s potential to transform emotion, people and place my scheme hopes to bring music to the centre of Weymouth’s culture by creating an ethereal experience that allows both performer and audience to transition from the town and escape into the world of music. The concert hall therefore becomes an elevated box, raised above a public pier and wrapped in a skin of adaptable glass louvres which dissolve its mass, connect with the sea and protect the auditorium within. Placing music at the centre, the chamber hall music venue is a warm timber box that opens at both ends to allow the surrounding context to filter inside.

The way justice works needs to be reviewed to ensure the system doesn’t fail prisoners or the society they will be returning to.

Immediate prison abolition is not possible without mass investment & changes in society’s attitudes, a transitional solution is required to move services from a judicial realm to a welfare one. This transitional solution is what this project aims to fulfil.

Arkhe Agata Nguyen Chuong agatanc1@gmail.com The proposed archive aims to constitute a growing repository of memories after places disappearing from the Earth as a consequence of climate change. The project explores our engagement with loss through the focus on natural phenomena and the agency of their destructive power. Mediating the presence of absence, it begins to interrogate contemporary notions of remembrance and our contested relationship with the past. The scheme, located in the proximity of Chesil Beach — a shifting landscape expected to disappear in the future — is conceived as a choreographed experience in the landscape, engaging with it in a sensitive yet profound manner. The proposal comprises a series of elements, each of which is an experience of either denial or release. In doing so, the elements accommodate various practices of remembrance. Disappearance, understood as matter in flux, is manifested in the material choice and tectonic considerations of the proposal. Certain parts of the scheme are expected to slowly disappear in the landscape. In so doing, the scheme will begin to negotiate what a contemporary archive could become.

It can teach us, heal us and has been wounded by us. The scheme seeks to celebrate our surviving relationship to allow us to cure and be cured. The project therefore accommodates human and horse therapy, whereby both work together through fear and mistrust, forming a relationship that is balanced and liberating. Reflecting this symbiotic relationship and the personal ascension of the patient are fundamental concepts of the scheme. To this aim, horse and human realms are merged. The land is the connecting element between the horse and the patient and so a slow, meandering route threads the buildings together on the journey to the summit. The spaces along this route provide moments of quiet meeting and observation; protection and exposure; introspection and wider contemplation.

Process: Ritual in the rock Jake Johnson jakejohnson@sky.com One thing in life is certain: death. Burial and cremation are the most common ways in which we lay our loved ones to rest. Similar funerary rituals exist between both funerals, with burial provides the emotional closure that one requires during a time of mourning. Whereas during cremation, the bodies final committal is not witnessed and in turn does not cater to the psyche. Increasing population numbers and life expectancy has resulted in industry resources being stretched, with demand exceeding capacity. Direct cremation is an emerging trend in which the body is cremated without a service, industrialising the process while seeking to meet demand. Process seeks to address both these issues by industrialising the process while encouraging the mourner to witness the final committal. The emerging technologies of Promession, freezing, and Resomation, dissolving, have been adopted to improve the process efficiency while seeking to challenge the taboo surrounding death.

Weymouth has an issue with reuse and regeneration where the town center desperately needs an activity boost. This psychogeographical town hall draws on ideas about the city characterized by the flaneur figure. In addressing the more unknown, subversive side of the city the civic figure can revive the spirit of a decaying place. The building groups the council office, conservation officer and civic society of Weymouth into a forum inserted into the ruin, working for smart reuse of listed buildings.

Ícho Monastirí Cécile Durand c.durand@live.com This project relates to the aspects of healing and progress, already engrained in the project location. The region of Weymouth and Portland was once associated to images of wellness, through the benefits of the sea. Today, disenchantment has settled in, changing the community and damaging its future. Restoring aspirations lies in reconnecting the people to themselves, to each other and their potential. Understanding the role of the aural senses and architecture on the human psyche is a challenge and an opportunity. The aim is to create a therapy and retreat centre which puts the individual’s wellbeing and sonic properties at the heart of the concept. How an environment nourished by acoustics qualities can help to embellish someone’s life and future, helping them to recover from past traumas and difficulties. Through the means of music, language and the elements of nature, ‘ícho monastíri’ transcends the traditional ideas of medicine and healing.

Interface Dom Oliver domoliver@hotmail.co.uk Interface is an investigation into the relationship between physical and digital space, aiming to break down barriers between ourselves and our environment, user and architect.

Dom Oliver

Tutor: Caroline Almond

The project brings together Brain-Computer Interface research and injured veteran rehabilitation, exploring the impact of the merging of nature and technology on architecture. An experimental approach to rehabilitation, veterans get access to high quality neuroprosthetics which in turn helps map neurons to aid the research. The building is centred around the idea that if you can control a very intricate prosthetic with your mind, you can also control your environment. Moving walls and responsive, empathetic environments give the injured veterans greater control over their surroundings and create more diaphanous thresholds. These interactive elements incorporate feedback loops into the architecture. Users’ reactions to changes are recorded and inform future changes, so a relationship is formed between the user and environment.

Camellia Britannia Ella Smith ellasmith96@hotmail.co.uk Dear Sir/ Madam, I am interested in hiring your services for the design of a Tea Emporium. The building will be a celebration of British tea and how it contributes to our society. My aim with opening the Tea Emporium is to use tea as a vehicle to support the community, bring in additional business to Weymouth and provide employment. I believe this project can make some real difference to the town. Tea will not be rushed. It moves at its own pace which, in turn encourages us to slow down rather than try and keep up with the world around us. The Tea Emporium will embody this pace and so in this slowing down there is time to speak to friends and colleagues, even if just for 10 minutes. It is these small interactions which bring us closer together. Taking these small chances to reconnect with ourselves and with those around us accumulates into a deeper connection with our society. An action as seemingly insignificant as having a cup of tea can have such a positive affect on life, if we only take notice.

Ella Smith

Growing Community aims to educate Weymouth about growing local food without the exploitation of animals. The project took an existing community at Green Lane Allotments and proposed to create a communal café, workshops and greenhouse. A main pedestrian street was created which opened up the site to the public, encouraging schools and small groups to come and learn about growing their own fruit and vegetables. Wrapping rammed earth walls retained earth on the sloped ground and two platforms were created. The raised platform became the café, giving visitors wider views across the allotments and to the sea, while an embedded platform became a tool library and storage for the greenhouse, a space for reconnecting to the earth and the soil.

BSc Architecture 4th Year Maria Villalobos mpaulavillalobos96@gmail.com Cité is a project challenging the modern typology of civic architecture, which we recognize as boasting grand heights and decorated façades, separated from its urban context. Though such gestures connote civic pride and celebration, they also suggest the imposing hierarchy and authority such civic buildings have over “the people,” both metaphorically and architecturally. In the spirit of cooperation, the project proposes a Town Hall with collective activities and community spaces, familiar to a community centre, rendering the Town Hall similar to an ancient Greek Forum: A site for elections, a venue for public speeches and judicial affairs, as well as a place for civic celebrations and festivals. It architecturally and metaphorically represents the approachability and transparency of its philosophies, and its cooperation with the common people.

HUB Olly Ridgley ollyridgley@gmail.com The brief for this project outlines a proposal for a new cycling-centric complex for Weymouth and Portland. The project will explore the relationship between bicycles and community, route and destination, and movement and resistance, to be reflected in the proposed spaces ultimately creating a precedent for future developments. Bicycles have great potential for shaping communities and lives for the better. Large scale projects with this aim in mind exist in developing countries. But these are yet to establish themselves in the UK, where the small amount of existing precedent consists of mostly small scale enterprises that cater to middle-class (often lycra-clad) enthusiasts. This issue pertains largely to cycling’s image. The scheme outlined this report challenges this image through effective promotion of cycling on a local and national level.

Hiraeth Tess Hillan tesshillan@hotmail.co.uk Hiraeth is an untranslatable Welsh word meaning a yearning for a home or place beyond this existence. The project explores lost traditions in house form and settlement creation and how they could be used to reimagine modern housing. It examines how people can live communally in the 21st century – a cheaper, more environmentally friendly alternative to individualised households. Response to the difficult site drove the project’s development, with the eventual scheme being a combination of simply constructed timber homes and stone or concrete elements which remain as ruins at the end of the project’s life. Each house is built around a ‘hearth’ - a structural core which offers freedom from restrictive floor plans by integrating the environmental needs of the dwellings. They allow each house to be made suitable for a variety of different household types. The hearth is a central point for the home, a place to inspire comfort and reflection much like the traditional hearth which has been lost in modern housing. The scheme follows a new built path from Rufus Castle to the cliff edge. A tower at the end of the path is a place of respite for walkers at its base, with viewing platforms on the higher floors. A humble fire at the centre of the scheme is a place for residents to gather informally. The fixed concrete hearth is built onto with a light timber structure this is more flexible and allows the residents to adapt the houses as they wish

The current practice of indefinite incarceration of asylum seekers while their claims are assessed is proven to have severe and long lasting psychological effects. Furthermore, the practice only serves to deepen the stigma that surrounds immigration within the national community. Asulos looks to provide a true refuge for those whose immigration applications are being processed; offering humane accommodation, opportunities for the development of skills and a platform for expression and community integration. Through the provision of spaces which are fit for purpose, Asulos attempts to mitigate some of the psychological issues which plague the existing system.

Growing up in different countries and cultures, community has always played a vital role in my life. Living in Africa, the tree has always represented community for me, as the tree is a social gathering point for the locals, and families would even live and make a living under them. In my eyes community and nature go hand in hand, but a lot of people have lost touch with nature due to the industrialization and globalization. People forget about the benefits nature can bring to us as humans and to our built environment. Through the use of nature, it’s low-key and sustainable approach, this building has been designed to give back to the community and local environment, breaking the boundaries between the internal and external spaces. This allowed nature to permeate through the building via various courtyards and across the roofs creating more gardens.

Christianity – one of the founding elements of Britain – is gradually becoming irrelevant except it being some kind of relict from the history books. Thus, this project seeks to reconnect faith with the reality of the world in both the ecological and social sense, while maintaining its faithful roots. The aim of this project is to deliver a new church and a community centre to foster a stronger sense of community in the area of Overcombe. The site also makes strong reference to its relationship with nature and, consequently, the wider world.

Weymouth currently suffers from an economic, social, and recreational over-reliance upon its beach, and the Theatre of Dreams development hopes to catalyse diversification and social renewal within the town centre. The major architectural strategy to ensure The Theatre of Dreams provides a new, characterful community ‘hub’ is the retractable nature of the spectator terracing, which can be lifted into the roof structure when not in use. In conjunction with the perimeter location of permanent infrastructure on site, this enables a large, open expanse to exist in the centre of the site – to operate in a manner like a conventional park throughout the week. Therefore, multiple community events can take place under the central roof canopy, as well as in the internal spaces adjacent. In conclusion, the scheme is about so much more than just football…

BSc Architecture 4th Year George Gil georgegil910@gmail.com Terramance seeks to explore Western civilisation’s complex relationship with the ground through the lens of the shamanic practice of geomancy. This forms a basis for reinterpreting the scientific process, whereby knowledge of the ground’s changing energy is gained through repetitive experimentation with external instrumentation, straddling the line between routine and ritual. It is said that the Earth’s protective layer, its magnetic field, is likely to flip within the next hundred years. The Earth’s iron core generates its magnetic field. Researchers have found that fired archaeological artefacts inadvertently record the strength and direction of the Earth’s field in their crystalline structures, telling the stories of its past. The South-Dorset Trans-Geomantic Settlement provides an expeditionary outpost for this research to take place on the South-Dorset Ridgeway. Objects are found, then divined archaeologically and archaeomagnetically within Weymouth’s vast backdrop to patch together the story of the ground’s changing energy lines in the South-West.

Budget: ÂŁ67,000,000 Natural Disasters are increasing in scale, frequency and intensity yet very little is being done to alleviate their large psychological and physical impact. No official space is designated aside from schools and churches to help in cases of important trauma, yet these places are not designed for that purpose. In response to the need for prevention resources across the world, my aim was to design an institute capable of researching environmental psychology to corroborate the role of the environment in our lives as part of a stressor and relaxing factor. The rest of the institute would serve a humanitarian role to provide residence for immediate victims of disasters in the UK or for indirect victims travelling to the centre as it would be the first of its kind. It would provide places to sleep, be treated and replenish ties to the environment.

The Sanctum emulates the female role of gatherer by foraging found conditions which form the foundation of the scheme; the topography, the biological process of birth, the basic spatial environments that stem from it, and the bones of a lost cultural ritual.

BSc Architecture 4th Year Tian Xu baixufanfei@gmail.com Meditators spend summers to build the buildings by themselves using local materials, and the community lives a semi self-sufficient life in the retreat after completion. In mindfulness tradition, staying in the present moment and the awareness of the surrounding environment is the essence. The spaces are designed according to the notion, and the external environment is reflected in the internal space, with the penetration of the smell, the sound, the light and the water. Old ruins are studied and adopted with the new structure, which gives the past a new present. Woven hazel which represents natural existence is introduced to cast shadow and reduce the wind level. Hazel cast concrete wall can, therefore, represent the exclusion of nature with trace imprinted on the surface. Oak trusses connected by mortise and tenon joints support the butterfly roof.

Machinis In Ruinam Vishmi Jayawardene vjayawardene@gmail.com It is evident that many of our current difficulties allude to a deeper spiritual crisis. Our considerable wisdom as a civilisation seems to have been exhausted to the point where we are no longer able to keep abreast of our own technological genius. The violence that we inflict upon each other and our environment is a testament to the lack of introspection and the shortcomings of death of spiritual education. A purely rational education no longer suffices. Without a spiritual awakening, we will continue to be blind. The aim of Machinis in Ruinam is to initiate an architectural, philosophical and precedental inquiry into the apocalyptic future that we have inherited: how the observation of our failings and the subsequent discourse of possible solutions can help stabilise and ground us as a generation plagued by extremes.

A theatre was chosen to encourage human interactions as it is a very open and flexible art form. The project focuses on three key areas: the theatre itself; the foyers and the workshops. The scheme hopes to reveal the work which goes on behind a production by exposing the back of house and allowing the public to view it.

Phantasmagoria George Luffingham gluffingham96@gmail.com We are all storytellers. So universal are stories in our lives, that they are present in all scales of our sense of identity: within ourselves (the individual self), our social connections (the relational self) and our sense of belonging to a larger metastory (the collective self). The story itself is so powerfully ingrained in the human psyche, that its not just that we enjoy the use of stories, but we simply cannot help ourselves. Phantasmagoria is a place for all types of stories to occur, at all scales. It aims to provide a facility for the people of Weymouth to find their own voice: a framework for people to express their individuality. The ground plane represents the relational self, in which stories occur over a coffee or in the public square. Hidden below is the individual plane, in which storytelling occur. Opposing this descent is the ascent through the tower, which houses a library, storytelling floor and recording studio.

BSc Architecture 4th Year Olivia Harrison livharrison@live.co.uk For this project I wanted to design in a way that was atypical to the teachings at Part 1 by adopting a bottom up approach. I carried out a series of interviews with the general public to form my typology. From these interviews it was clear that a place for the local people to socialise as well as a place where skills could be exchanged was needed. My design is a community forum with small workshops and studios, the forum is a flexible space allowing local groups to host meetings, exhibitions or performances and the studios/workshops open up to form a market. The site used to be the centre of Weymouth but was heavily bombed in WWII. The studios plug into and retain the ruinous wall of the old high street shops and the workshops are placed underneath the abandoned council offices, thus creating a room within the cityscape.

Weymouth once relied on industry moving through the harbour for employment, but changing economic conditions in the country have caused the redundancy of much of its industry. The only significant industry left is tourism, which does not offer enough skilled work for the population, and those leaving education are suffering from a lack of motivation.

Weymouth Photography Centre Momoko Otsuka momokootsuka7@gmail.com For my individual project I decided to design a photography centre that allows the community of Weymouth, students and professional photographers to come together. I defined 6 elements that I think were important in photography (frame, storytelling, communication, focus, light and development) and portray them through architecture. I also felt that the key elements that define Weymouth (slots of views and lights through the narrow streets and water) should be responded in the architecture to link it better in to the site. I brought the water into the site and responded to town with the slotted window façade. On the exterior, the Graphic concrete is on the entrance façade which signs what the building is about even from a far and the cor-ten linings and slots will stain the concrete over time, allowing the building to age and develop over time.

Food is one of the few things in the world that brings people together. Food has been a social catalyst for a long time. Back in the day, the marketplace was a stage for comedy, carnivals, politics and even protest. Markets demonstrated the power of food and how it could bring us together in physical space. Food is a complex issue, however it is also an incredibly personal, emotive and social one. Consequently, this project is a result of my exploring these themes and finding a solution that unites the many aspects of food under one roof. Located in the heart of Weymouth, The Epicurium is a place where food is grown, sold, eaten, and used as a catalyst for socializing.

The current social care system is in crisis, with health care provided piecemeal and care homes that are not fit for purpose. People with dementia are excluded from society and their local communities, leading to isolation and loneliness. With cases of dementia set to rise considerably over the next few decades, dementia is becoming one of the biggest medical and social challenges of this generation. The aim of this project is to create a new destination, a centre that will redefine dementia care by reversing the negative social effects of dementia, improving the lives of people with dementia and their families, promoting community integration, providing new community facilities and educating local people.

The Temple Within Swati Agarwal ‘Our perception of the sacred can either be limited or liberated by architecture.’ Anthony Lawlor The architecture of this spiritual retreat is derived from Vedic principles to accentuate the experience of self-realization. Ashrams are typically set outside a village or town in a quiet and peaceful area. It is an oasis of serenity and calmness. Throughout the day, you follow a routine in a basic setting that is community eccentric. This simplicity helps us understand the importance of the things in life we generally take for granted. It also helps us reflect on our mental conditioning, our habits and our addictions, which we sometimes confuse for necessities. It helps us to find ‘sacred’ in everyday life. Ashrams provide a safe space, free from distractions and routines of daily life, and the chance to get rid of excess emotional and material baggage. Visitors come back to themselves and reflect on the true purpose and meaning of their life. What is expected of an ashram is spiritual health, either in the form of therapy, peace of mind or right understanding.

The Ground by Other Means Alejandro Fernandez Grande f.grande@outlook.com The Isle of Portland embodies the epitome of one of the most significant cultural phenomena of modernity: the transition from Ground to Land. This is a transition from a sense of place defined by the physical phenomena, to one defined by powerful human construct and concepts of economics, politics and culture. The city has traditionally been the poster child of Land, and the countryside that of the Ground. Yet Portland, a remote countryside peninsula has since the 1800’s exemplified how Land and its institutions become manifest in the countryside and the effect that a constant rejection of the ground has over a location’s sense of place. The case of Portland is significant because in many ways it foretells contemporary attitudes to the countryside. In this project Portland has served as a test bed for architecture, a field which operates within ground and land, and which is highly effective in managing problematics of place, to explore strategies for the presence of institutional buildings in the countryside; to find the ground by other means.

Refuge for victims of domestic abuse, both human & non-human Alexandra Enescu alexandraenescu9532@gmail.com Domestic violence is violence or other abuse by one person against another in a domestic setting, such as marriage or cohabitation. The shelter is a place where you can seek temporary accommodation while you sort out your next steps. There is increasing research and clinical evidence which suggests that there is a link between the abuse of children, vulnerable adults and animals. Pets are often the silent, forgotten victims of domestic violence and abuse, used as part of the pattern of coercion and control, threatened, yelled at, beaten, kicked and in some cases killed. Leaving an abuser can be one of the most dangerous times for a victim. But if you have a pet, leaving is even harder. Almost half of abused victims will delay their departure if they cannot bring their animals. Most shelters do not have facilities to accommodate them.

By the means of manipulating lighting conditions, each space to evoke different emotions and allows for discussion happening in different circumstances. In a way, I propose that the funeral and cremation should focus on the impacts that it should have in our lives. In a social context, the proposal would also attempt in bonding communities, through the common experience that we would all pass away, that the proposal would serve both Weymouth and Portland would create a mutual platform for the two communities in a peaceful and calm setting.

My project is a museum that celebrates different aspects of the earth’s basic matter: Stone. It is positioned inside a disused quarry on the Isle of Portland. The museum aims to evoke emotional dissonance in the visitor as they are confronted with the value of natural stone in the exhibition contents, against the value of nature as a necessary resource in the quarry site. Understanding the nature of stone from the exhibits, within the context of the stone void site, should give the visitor a greater appreciation of the landscape. In this way each of the four exhibition themes (Formation, Jurassic, Quarrying and Mining) are in direct relation to the quarry site and therefore the site becomes part of the overall exhibition.

BSc Architecture 4th Year Kabilan Selva kabilanselva15@gmail.com I believe that the voice is a very unique and valuable instrument that one can use as a medium to express their thoughts/opinions as well as enhancing their perception of music. It is crucial for all novice singers to understand the basic elements of singing and how to exercise the voice. For this very reason I propose to design a school with the sole purpose of educating/training people on how to sing as well as developing their own style of music. Throughout their career, singers are constantly developing their personal musical style. There are many reasons as to why this may be difficult to achieve (i.e. the wrong environment). Therefore, singing in a secluded area by the trees could assist many starting singers in developing their “voice�. In seclusion, one can focus primarily on their singing without the distractions of everyday life (i.e. cars/city life).

Por tland Ark Mark Kendernay mkendernay@gmail.com Portland Ark is a residential drug rehabilitation centre and a proposal for a place of addiction and adaptation on the Isle of Portland. Located in the centre of the town, the scheme intends to help those fighting addiction while establishing meaningful connections between the marginalised and the wider community. As part of its architectural strategy the project developed a residential typology based on a series of inhabited thresholds to balance between inside and outside, private and public, and individual and shared. These divisions are softened by two border conditions in the tectonic design: the edge as a private liminal space between the private realm of the individual bedroom and the public realm of the high street; and the veil as a shared liminal space created by the gradation of tectonic layers with varied transparencies. Similarly to how therapy aims to fill the void left in the psyche after the withdrawal from drugs, the scheme also stands as an attempt to reintegrate the brownfield site by repairing the historic fabric of the high street of Fortuneswell.

BSc Architecture 4th Year Jamie Sleep sleep-j-95@outlook.com Geomorphis is based on the principles of geomorphology - the study of how landscapes change naturally over geological periods of time. Human activity, in relatively recent times, has served to accelerate almost all of these natural processes to a point where we have become the most dominant erosive force on the environment, thus ushering in a new geological age known as the Anthropocene. As a basis, this project accepts the most extreme predictions of climate change. This building is a research centre that looks at the ocean and the rocks as indicators of the health of the environment. It is designed to become slowly submerged and more isolated from the Isle of Portland as the sea level rises and the cliff erodes back, becoming a physical measure for which the human impact on the environment can be measured. It is clad in panels of chains and steel, providing an animated skin that responds and changes with the climate.

An Office for Lawyers Jean-Baptiste Gilles jbgilles1@gmail.com Dehumanised by an obsessive desire for repetitivity, the office is used as a medium to investigate a method of design that could develop in an equally regularised fashion, a series of perceivably unique and different spaces. The project quickly becomes an unintended and highly specified series of steps that lead to the production of such a space, but most importantly progressively realises the strength in creating the perception of differentiation rather than forming actual physical differences. The complexities of a courtroom are further emphasised by a purposefully inefficient arrangement of its spaces creating a largescale tri-dimensional constraint upon which the offices can then organise themselves. Yet a constant tension between the two entities emanates throughout the proposal through the usual impossibility of bringing these two conflicting functions together, and so creating a further layer of intricacy.

The facility hosts a clinical complex dedicated to the research of stem cells and regenerative medicine, along with a permanent depository underneath the existing rock on site. The proposal aims to be an extrovert environment that interacts with the existing landscape and defies the boundaries between the two. The scheme recreates the atmosphere of a ruin, amplifying the ambiguity of time and age, where the proposed structure deteriorates in tandem with the natural. The end of the journey under the metaphorical “tumulus”, suggests a space of pilgrimage, this time dedicated to the beginning of life placed within the metaphysical realm. Both the architectural composition and the materiality aim to challenge the visitors’ perception of the man-made and the natural, resulting in an architectural scheme that is equally new as old.

The character of the building revolves around the tectonics found in water villages and oyster farms where numerous of timber stilts are used in water for supporting structures. Series of water courtyards are created in between the negative voids of buildings, offering light wells to deeper part of the building and look-in spaces for visitors. Through creating habitable spaces for the people and marine life – the market square and the oyster bed – in which connected by a linear public broadwalk, the building aims to establish a close relationship between the occupants and the nature, in response to the social and ecological agenda.

Peripatos Marina Mylonadis marmylonadis@gmail.com Amongst the many advantages that technology has given to us, it has transformed the way in which individuals communicate with each other and interact with society. Our window of the world is ‘personalized’ where we are presented with a skewed view of reality. As architects, we have the power to overcome people’s entrenched preconceptions of what they believe the outside world to be. Throughout this project I have explored how architecture can express the unpredictability experienced by the urban wanderer. By understanding the intentions and habits of the 19th century concept of the flaneur, I designed a hub for walking in Weymouth, that intends to achieve a form of psychogeography through education. It includes an education center, a hostel for hikers undertaking the South West Coast Path, a gallery and a cafe. The architectural intention of the scheme is to celebrate the randomness of the city, the ground on which the flaneur loses oneself: the labyrinth qualities that surprise you at every corner.

The Whale was the instrument of biblical Jonah’s rebirth and spiritual awakening; similarly our changing relationship with whales has also been solid precedent of how the ecology should be treated with respect. The architecture embodies the qualities of the whale - its immensity, rhyme and movements - awe-inspiring; It is metaphorically a church for the whales, a place for communal celebration and solitude. Through research works and community engagements, may the sophistication of whale lives reminds us the richness in our own. It invites people to feel the humility, at the same time to feel belonged to a part of something bigger, greater - the rekindle with the interdependence of all life.

In our profane, materialistic society, most have withdrawn from the healing rites that can relieve suffering in the face of trauma or misfortune, such as gardening. Many aspire to be self-sufficient and being able to manage one’s own health using nothing more than nature’s medicine cabinet gives a tremendous sense of selfachievement. The proposal is a centre for holistic herbalism that aims to alleviate the ailments of both residents and terrain alike. Visitors can harvest various herbs to supplement their healthcare. The centre will achieve its objectives via its two strands, both of which are earth-sheltered: the health strand where remedies will reinvigorate and the education/research strand promoting the advancement of these restoratives. The greenhouse encircled by these two strands serves as the focal point.

However, not many people get to explore this form of movement when they get older. Through this project, I aim to create a unique place where people who never climb in their lives can fall in love. The other issue is the climbing cliff of Portland. A lot of people who pick up climbing, they started from climbing indoor as it is easier and more beginner friendly. However, they never get to progress to outdoor climbing, and sticking with what they feel comfortable. It is heart breaking that climbing indoor has became a lot more popular than its real counterpart. Therefore, I want to create a place where Beginner can progressively get better, and eventually become good enough that they can enjoy climbing outdoor.

It aims to regenerate the area and provide a new focal point for the community that will promote the sport of swimming and encourage more people to get involved. Swimming participation levels in the UK have been on a continual downward trajectory, with a 24% decrease in people swimming weekly in the last 10 years. Despite this decline in participation, the number of open water swimmers has almost doubled. Most modern pools are concerned with the internal, crowding the poolside with walkways and viewing terraces which detract from the enjoyment of the actual swimming experience. There is an obvious desire from the public for more open swimming facilities, presenting the opportunity to experiment with the existing indoor pool typology with a design which embraces its surroundings and blurs the internal and external boundaries.

Often misunderstood as a sect of Islam, Sufism can be more accurately described as an ancient esoteric organisation of free thinkers engaging in the progression of human development, founded on the principles of Islam. With a rise in global Islamophobia and distortion of the original message, Sufism offers an opportunity to build bridges by sharing ideologies. The scheme thus seeks to physically manifest the metaphysical beliefs through architectural elements, presenting an open centre for the arts and education. Exhibitions are available to showcase modern and historic Sufi artefacts, artwork, and manuscripts, with a special theatre space dedicated to presentations and Sufi dances. Additionally, multi-faith spaces today are often limited, and there are few institutes designed to be open to all faiths. While the scheme is designed on the foundations of Islam, it strives to be a place of worship and leisure for everyone in the community and beyond.

To Mar tin Gledhill... Without Martin Gledhill, we would certainly be at a great loss. His support, kindness and unfaltering dedication leaves us searching for words to fully express our gratitude. Apart from learning a new obscure word every day, Martin has taught us so much. But what he has taught us has gone so much further than architecture. He has taught us empathy not only to others, but primarily for ourselves. He taught us what sheer dedication can achieve, and how many people it can touch. But most of all, he has shown us that understanding towards one another has no bounds. We need look no further than Carl Jung, Martin’s own inspiration and therefore ours also : “One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child.” It has been Martin’s warmth that has nurtured every single person and given the strength to get through what at times felt like an onerous many months. So thank you, Martin, for being everything that you are. We appreciate you more than you can imagine.

1st Year Studio Co-ordinator: Matthew Wickens

1st Year Year One at Bath is designed to be a foundation in which the students gather a broad range of experience by being asked to work in different materials for each project. We have a long tradition of team working with the civil engineering students and this starts on day one. This year the project was entitled Sessorium meaning a chair or a stool but also suggesting the act of dwelling. Using a limited palette of materials (rope, softwood, OSB and canvas), the students were asked to construct a full size structure on which a member of their team could sit. The pieces were designed to embody the theme of floating and utilise the structural properties of each material. The students were able to take this first-hand experience of making into project 2. Project Two was entitled ‘Mid-Century Mobilia’ and the students were asked to design an exhibition stand for a specific midcentury chair picked from 100 Midcentury Chairs and Their Stories by Lucy Ryder Richardson. The exhibition stand was to be built from timber but did not need to withstand the elements as it would be inside a trade hall. Therefore ease and speed of construction and the relationship of the ‘container’ to the chair contained were key concerns. Semester Two began with Project Three called ‘5th Elevation’ – a reference to the roof of a building, a key element often neglected. The brief was to design a small scale exhibition pavilion for work from the department, and replacement bicycle store, for the square to the east of 4ES, a site highly visible from above. This time the material palette was a steel structure with a lightweight skin. These ‘skins’ were selected at random from Cor-Ten; Stainless Steel; Copper; Zinc; Lead; Brass; Polycarbonate; ETFE & Polyester coated PVC. The final, and most complex project of the year - ‘Desert Island Bricks’ - was to design a 3-bed house on a rectangular plot 18m x 12m. This time the material palette focused on masonry with a choice of bricks and larger blocks available. The brief was arrived at by the students’ picking a client by choosing someone who has featured on the BBC Radio 4 series Desert Island Discs. The resultant variety from the Maharani Of Jaipur to Sue Perkins, via Gordon Ramsey, Bear Grylls and Vivienne Westwood was really quite impressive! 234

Project 1 A Workshop Theatre. 13

Located on one of two riverside sites in the very centre of Bath either side of Pulteney Weir.

CONTEXT PLAN 1:500 @A3

While the design solutions had to work pragmatically on many levels this project was primarily about two things: Designing a workshop theatre space, rather than a traditional theatre, meaning that it could be configured in a number of arrangements while still functioning well in terms of audience and actor access over two levels and back of stage/front of stage.

12

17

And Designing the bar spaces, inside and out, and the ceremonial circulation.

Project 2

6 5

A Medical Centre.

3

Located on one of three leafy suburban sites, also within Bath, each with an open an aspect on one side and some built context on the other. A more complex planning problem here with the solution ideally having two circulation patterns, one for the patients and another behind the scenes for the staff. Spatially interesting and diverse too with a large welllit waiting area and small private consulting rooms. The brief also included non-NHS functions which made the solution complex enough to generate a two-storey solution when the designer wished or the site dictated.

3rd Year

3rd Year This year’s theme for 3rd Year was Culture: Connections + Memory. Two design projects gave students the chance to think about their role as future architects in creating artistic, socially engaging and ecologically responsible environments. The projects were in London and Berlin. The first in London was a 4-week joint group project with engineers, and the Berlin Project, including a week-long study trip, was an 8-week individual endeavour.

Studio Co-ordinator: Daniel Wong

Project 1: Poplar, London After the provocative work done by our students in 2016/17 (a habitable bridge over the River Lea), we were invited back for a second year to envision place-making by the award-winning Housing and Community Regeneration Association, Poplar HARCA. The challenge this year was to bridge over the A12, an 8-lane noisy, polluted, fast and dangerous barrier severing the Riverside from the heart of Poplar at Chrisp Street Markets. Students had to establish a continuum with last year’s projects, seeking imaginative and experimental responses to this harsh landscape, and incorporating a live programme. Project 2: Berlin, Germany This project was a non-verbal Experimental Theatre – looking at the notion of Experimentalism, or the philosophical belief that the way to truth is through experiments and empiricism. Each student had to choose one of three sites provided. The sites, while sharing the similar and tragic history of the Wall, each had its own unique story: a Berlin ”ghost station”; the SS Headquarters; and the largest open air art gallery in the world. Students were asked to sensitively intervene in these sombre sites, investigating how to look back, how to look forward, and how to give voice to a quiet place.

5th Year Studio Co-ordinator: Toby Lewis

5th Year The brief for the main project this year is for a Community Workshop, containing large and small workshops, education room, reception and shop, exhibition, social and administration spaces, as a model for the future of shared workspace; a program that draws local people into a community of makers, builders and fixers, with both new automated digital and traditional hand craft ways of working. However students are invited to make the project their own; to revise and develop the brief in the direction they wish to take it. The project site is in the Bristol Temple Quarter sandwiched between the Feeder canal and the river Avon at the ‘front door’ to the new Bristol Arena development, a stone’s throw from Temple Meads station but hardly visible from it. Students are also asked to design a public landscape or pocket park for the adjacent city spaces. The aims of the studio have been 1. To encourage each student to explore and develop their own design processes through a series of structured exercises. 2. To develop designs that address a range of scales from urban design and landscape to detail and material.

6th Year During the first half of the Master of Architecture programme students carry out urban design projects in groups in a city of choice. For the first time the city can be selected anywhere on the planet, leading to choices for 2017-18 being Bristol, Cape Town, Genoa, Havana, MalmÜ, Rotterdam and Tromsø. Desk-top studies are carried out prior to a site visit by each group to their chosen city. During each visit an analysis of the locale is conducted forming the research aspect of each masterplan. Once groups return to Bath they explore transformative urban design proposals based on the principles of low carbon urbanism. The final part of the first semester shifts towards individual work, where each student prepares a design brief for a building within their masterplan locale. The second semester is dedicated to individual design projects. Studio projects employ the knowledge and experiences gained throughout their architectural education and serve as a final design thesis before professional careers. Each project explores an agenda that is specific to place, environment, and the individual interests of each student.

Bristol

St Philipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Marsh is disconnected, undeveloped and sits in one of the most deprived wards in the center of Bristol city. Next to it sits Temple Meads, a train station that reaches 24 million people just within a 2-hour ride radius. New areas next to it house a University development bringing students and new life into the space. To the south, the creative, technology-oriented Paintworks attract young entrepreneurs. It is one of the most sought after development areas in the UK. Rather than sprawling to the suburbs, the growth is kept in the centre, densifying and developing as a large, open concrete landscape. The large floodplains of River Avon affecting the city are contained within the masterplan, by creating a marshland park that allows flooding at different severity levels. This also brings back the biodiversity of the area, becoming a stop in the important riparian corridor of the river.

MArch 6th Year The Festival City Masterplanning

Cape Town, South Africa Hana Barnes James Blundall Jonathan Burlow Manon Decoster Ashley Gopee Edward Yeo

Cape Town

Hout Bay is the cultural heart of Cape Town, home to a hugely diverse population and incredibly beautiful landscape. Cape Town is a city of colour, a perfect illustration of the rainbow nation, and we believe this should be made the most of. However, South Africa is scarred by a damaging regime of segregation, despite apartheid coming to an end in 1991. Evidence of inequality and exclusion is still seen in the urban form of the country. Hout Bay is a distillation of these issues, it’s an example of cities all over the country, and this masterplan is a test-bed for the bigger picture. The masterplan will be a catalyst to attempt to aid in the unification of South Africa. It proposes the use of a festival to celebrate Hout Bay, to unite those who live there and those who visit alike. Elements of the masterplan include a raised walkway (connecting disparate and segregated areas of the town), a self-build housing system (to enable residents to improve their homes), a “plug-in” network of service provision (to provide electricity, waste management and gas to houses in the township), an economic hub (providing employment and investment opportunities).

This structure enable the upgrading of informal settlements as it requires a relatively small footprint to become functionally useful. The operation is similar to that used by Eskom in bringing power to shack settlements by employing network of overhead power lines anchored to the ground by poles very little is disturbed at ground level. The tree-machine works in a similar way utilizing biogas production and solar energy, distributing between houses.

SHACK STACK

This design concept would achieve a number of benefits: firstly, enable the local community to take charge of extending there own homes; secondly, transform the temporary nature of the structure into a more permanent one; and finally, develop the house vertically since the ground level is overcrowded. The concept achieves all of these objectives in a cost-effective manner, and also engages the imagination of the homeowner, giving them control over the home, and in turn, empowering them. The structure is a minimal, permanent structure that requires little work to construct and allows the homeowner to decide how he or she wants to organise the internal spaces of the house.

MArch 6th Year ‘A Catalyst for Change’ Masterplanning

Genoa, Italy Joshua Hobson Anna Holmes Philip Jordan Katie Shaylor Jack Whetton

Genoa

Rhiona Williams Genoa has suffered from a loss of identity following industrial decline of the historic port. The rise in unemployment has caused the population to migrate following more prevalent job opportunities. A city constrained between the mountains and sea has become disconnected from the natural surroundings through sprawl of the built environment. This tension has had catastrophic consequences of natural disasters such as landslides, forest fires and floods. The aim of this masterplan is to release this tension, by designing a managed flood strategy that relieves the area from flood risk but also re-establishes the historic connection between water, land and city. The re-imagining of the Bisagno Valley and its position within the city, creates a new identity for Genoa and acts as a catalyst for change. A new offer to the Genoese HOMES SAVED residences, improving the city connectivity and encouraging new industry with Genoa as the heart of the Riviera.

MArch 6th Year Resolver La Habana Masterplanning

Havana, Cuba Hon Yen Chong Chen-Yong Tan Luke Gordon Kristen Tan Lang Jin Cyrus Lee Harjeet Matharu

Havana

The Resolver Masterplan proposes to counter the current trend of Southern and Western expansion by expanding to the East, with the Havana Bay and its parkland at the centre of social and cultural activity. Three rings are established to redefine the bay as the long term city centre. This will be done by resolving three key infrastructural issues at the macro scale: Water, Waste and Transport. At the micro scale, our intervention addresses the crumbling urban fabric of Centro Havana. Utilising many of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dilapidated sites, community facilities such as waste upcycling workshops and much needed green space are introduced. This is integrated with a coastal strategy that re-establishes the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s connection with the water. By introducing a barrage at the mouth of Havana Bay, the water body is transformed into a freshwater resource, allowing for recreational and lifestyle amenities to flourish. As well as supplying freshwater to the city, it also alleviates coastal flooding and the need for further sea defences.

Malmö, Sweden Gloria Vidal Amian Katie Andrews Eilish Barry Emily Johnson Molly McGrath Alice Mellor Close, Dense, Green City

Malmö

The masterplan addresses the problems of segregation, population growth and low quality green space. There is currently a social and economic eastwest divide within the city. The masterplan proposes a transport link that runs along the east-west axis, challenging preconceptions and making the coast accessible to all. The city’s population is predicted to increase by 50% over the next 27 years. The masterplan accommodates this through densification of brownfield sites which are arranged along an inner and outer tram ring. The inner tram route passes through seven locales of distinct identity. Expansion will take place around these hubs following a kit of parts created to suit the unique needs of each community. These are connected through multifunctional green and blue spaces, tied together with a bio-swale to alleviate storm water flooding. Three strands of the masterplan were developed in more detail; the built ‘community arts’ locale, the landscaped ‘common ground,’ and the connecting tram line.

Rotterdam

This masterplan redevelops the post industrial wharves of Vierhavens, Rotterdam. Building on a nascent core of start ups and creatives, a different approach is taken to each of the three docks. Keilehaven becomes a cultural promenade, stretching the existing creative hub along the waterfront. Lekhaven becomes a centre for the new innovation economy, with startups reinhabiting the portal frames of old warehouses. Ijsselhaven is naturally re-silted to form a huge urban wetland, bringing a rich ecology to the site. These three havens are then stitched together by pedestrian routes intensified with 24 hour life. Inhabited bridges tie the proposal back across the outer dike to existing communities, creating a connected but diverse piece of city. The scheme is proposed as a model that could be rolled out across the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s docks as they come out of port use, reinventing the outer dijk region of the city.

Tromsø is plagued by ill considered development which has resulted in an uncoordinated city scape. Many of the squares are flanked by tall building which block what little light attempts to fall on the public spaces. The city carving seeks to provide order for future developments setting a maximum extents for built fabric. This will allow development to provide the required densities whilst ensuring that the quality of the public realm is improved upon.

The consideration of key infrastructural moves, industrial activity, and further research connections are integral to the city’s survival. The planning of Tromsø’s built form prioritises light into its most important public spaces with use of a densification framework. This framework balances the island’s maximum population growth, with its ability to remain carbon positive. The vision for Tromsø’s new ‘flipped’ mixeduse typology, serves the Arctic climate. The concentration of residential towards the lower half of an example building block, ensures a significantly lowered energy consumption, whilst retaining the island’s ‘small-town feel’ during the polar night.

p.fuster.a@gmail.com Spicery is an ancient word, describing a place where spices are produced or stored. Many grand houses had their own Spicery, a separate office where the spices and the most valuable ingredients for the kitchens were stored. Spiceries had to be dry, dark and avoid heat to ensure the preservation of the valuable spices. The Spicery measures, grinds and packages spices. It works in conjunction with the kitchen, to create new recipes and offer their customers an immersive cooking experience.

Individual Project

angelikamazzolitaic@gmail.com This project is for the relocation and expansion of Bristol Animal Rescue Centre. The centre works in partnership with the RSPCA. Animals neglected, straying, victims of abuse and cruelty are brought here everyday to be sheltered, fed, looked after and rehabilitated so that they can have a better chance in life. The work done by the A.R.C. and RSPCA has recently began to extend to projects developed in partnership with charities and associations in the city, establishing a network in the wider community. In addition, the reestablishment of the natural marsh set by the masterplan, will extend the green and blue corridors of the city.

MArch 6th Year St Philip’s Gin Distiller y, Bristol

St Philip’s Marsh lies at the intersection of a historical, industrial Bristol - with its brick warehouses and exposed processes - and a modern, culturally diverse Bristol - with its love of food and drink made with fresh, local ingredients. St Philip’s Gin Distillery aims to honour both and establish a hub for workers, visitors, and indulgers alike in the heart of the St Philip’s locale - a place where gin is made, where people can come to see it being distilled, and ultimately to drink the finished product.

With a collection of active based organisations, shops and eateries with a multi-use velodrome as its centrepiece, the development creates a critical mass of activity as a vibrant gateway between Bristol Temple Meads Station and the Eastern city.

Hout Bay Seed Vault and Clinic hjb52@bath.ac.uk The Hout Bay Seed Vault and Clinic is a facility for the storage, research and medicinal use of the plants of the South African Fynbos. Incorporating a community clinic and a research facility, the building aims to unite the culture of traditional medicines with the development of modern medical treatments from these biomaterials. The scheme is driven by the unique landscape of the Cape, drawing on vernacular construction methods, materials, and environmental principles that already exist there. The building is buried within the mountain, formed from the mass of the mountain, and sheltered by the timber of the forest. The building and landscape are united by the lightweight walkways that lightly float above the living exhibition below.

Strengthening the self-sufficient ethos of the master plan, the proposed desalination plant will both provide clean water, and bi-products that will integrate into the daily cycle of the community. The aim of this project is to remove the waste product that is Brine through a series of salt ponds thus removing any waste from the desalination process. Facilitating the unemployment issue of Hangberg through the creation of new professions and research, the scheme will also incorporate a series of salt lake flats with the intention of assisting in the local environment and wildlife ecosystems, including that of the depreciating flamingo population.

The proposal looks to connect the existing communities with the idea of a unifying relatable interest, music. The architecture is based on the idea of reverse engineering the traditional concert hall, creating an amphitheater / performance space that is focused on outdoor music, and festival performance. The building practically acts as the back stage and allows the landscape to be the backdrop. By providing stepped terraces and changes in levels, it accommodates for spectating platforms whilst poetically becoming a synthetic play on the landscape surrounding it. The proposal aims to create a building that not only responds to its environment and agenda, but that also creates a piece of architecture that looks at referencing exiting typologies by combining all forms to create a new language for the city. Becoming aesthetically intriguing in its architectural qualities, with the potential of driving the global acknowledgment for the area and culture.

This will create funds for a reforestation program that will restore Hout Bay’s forest and its diverse ecosystems for future generations. Teaching programs offered to locals will help them become employable in the tourism sector and educate them on environmental sustainability.

MArch 6th Year Hout Bay Fish Market a.gopee@hotmail.co.uk The Hout Bay Fish Market is a new landmark and destination, situated in the centre of a socially broken area. It plays a key role in reestablishing the local fishing culture, which has been lost due to the industrialisation of the Harbour. By exploiting the resources of the ocean, the Fish Market seeks to combine trade, education, research and entertainment to provide opportunities to local people. This social agenda drove the various programmes of the building, aiming to knit together disconnected communities, 24 years after the fall of the apartheid. The form represents a modern twist on the local vernacular by acknowledging the industrial typology of the harbour. The surrounding townships influence the exposed timber structure, referencing similar construction techniques to complement the local traditions. The market has the potential to become a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;social condenserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, encouraging different social groups to use the space in a variety of ways. The flexibility of the space is key in providing a platform for interaction.

MArch 6th Year Genoa j.michael.hobson@gmail.com Through the design of the Sala Da Cena a building typology that serves the genoese people has been developed. An architecture that encourages conversation, debate and education to intertwine. At the heart of this is the traditional sagra event, held in the dining hall of the city. The courtyard form commonly found across Genoa has been reinterpreted into a building which accommodates transparency, movement and interaction whilst still providing enclosure. The spacial arrangement references the activity found around the dining table, allowing the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daily activities to be displayed and engaged with by both building users and the passing public. Dining becomes the primary catalyst for debate, with the act of teaching building a bond between generations to improve understanding and empathy. Through the power of food, the experience of shared community eating and the passing on of traditional cooking methods, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environmental challenges can be discussed and debated between generations. Thus allowing a strong understanding between all city residents to develop.

The Il Bisagno masterplan, ‘A Catalyst for Change’ proposes to reintroduce the Il Bisagno River, re-connecting the mountains, city and sea. The city suffers from a shrinking and ageing population, where students move on after their studies. The masterplan proposes a valley of activity along the river providing amenities to attract the younger population to stay. A key elements of these amenities is sporting facilities that the city currently lacks. Genoa Rowing Training Base, is located at the end of the valley and aims to encourage the community to utilise both the river and sea for activity, hosting regatta events for the city to enjoy.

The project not only provides spaces for the teaching of performing arts, but also the technical, production and design elements that are associated with present day theatre productions. Through a series of interconnected spaces and a general breaking down of the front of house and back-stage, the proposal aims to enhance a collaborative approach to the teaching of theatre whilst allowing for the greatest sense of creative exploration.

By understanding these two contrasting purposes, the project creates a series of adaptable and robust teaching spaces that can be occupied, knocked around, and generally treated with healthy disrespect.

Despite this, many of the buildings within the Centro Storico are falling into disrepair. This is due to the number of trained craftspeople capable of completing the work falling considerably in recent years. A second issue, regarding Tourism, is that the interaction between the Architecture and tourists is limited to the external elevation, due to the Palace and Chapels private uses. Information regarding Genoese Architecture is severely limited within the City as there are no facilitating Museums. To help offset these issues, the Museum Workshop provides a facility to up-skill individuals, whilst providing an integrated public Building Museum to showcase the Architecture of Genoa, working together to conserve and celebrate its materiality.

Individuals of Havana are empowered through self-production and self-making.

During the Havana Art Biennial, the space acts as a exhibition hub for the event. The building transforms into a platform for both local residents and international visitors to share and experience each others culture. The rotation of these two functions allows the Biennial Foundation to invest and provide for the building once every three years which can be used by the Havana community. The community, in return provides and shares their culture in the form of exhibitions and installations during the Biennial Event. This provides a symbiotic nature between the two groups to integrate and trade culture without the intent of capitalistic gains present in current Havana.

The project adopts the analogy of the ajiaco, a national dish of Cuba used to describe the island nation as a melting pot. The cooking of the ajiaco symbolises the complex formation of Cuban culture, where the stew is constantly simmering and is never ready. As Cuba is at the cusp of change, new cultural ingredients and foreign culinary influences would keep entering the pot of Cuba. Here, the lesson of ajiaco would emphasise the importance of assimilation, as opposed to the replacement of the old with the new, for the future transformation and continuous enrichment of Cuban food culture.

It will bring back the true identity of the city through the amalgamation of Swedish nature and architecture. The scheme aims to interrogate the identity of a railway station. It represents movement and stillness (Rörelse & Stillhet) and aims to celebrate the two aspects of travelling. It becomes the spaces dedicated to the Swedish culture of landscape topography. The station acts as a gateway to Malmö, “The City of Parks” and Sweden.

Individual Project

Rotterdam aoifeodonoghue45@gmail.com The Flux Theatre is a Theatre of Performing Arts with an in-house Production Centre that unfolds and reveals the mystery and spectacle of the art and craft of Theatre and its inner working mechanism. Providing a new cultural destination, a platform for education and a new vibrant creative working hub for the proposed masterplan in the city of Rotterdam. It will address the lack of cultural points of interest within the proposed masterplan ‘Life in the Outer Dijk’ by providing a place for performing as well as a centre for in-house production for the creation, construction and production of theatre design. This theatre hopes to promote culture and draw the existing and surrounding community into the masterplan site and inject more life in the outer dijk. Not only will it promote culture to the public, it will provide opportunities for employment for both professionals and interns in the industry of theatre design, as well as being a platform for education and interchange of skills.

Individual Project

Rotterdam natasha.ho@hotmail.com In an industrial landscape in the wharfs and piers carved out by the port of Rotterdam, water and land are manipulated to form a new large-scale topography, creating habitats for birds and ornithological research. This new research facility sits close to the water, embedded in the pier. Atop these laboratories, a route carves through the man-made landscape, providing glimpses into the winged upper world above. Connecting the public to the laboratories and wetland through an observational journey, the building acts as a backdrop through which to observe nature and human life. The building questions the way we interact with nature and sets out to increase bird numbers and our understanding of these otherwordly creatures.

MArch 6th Year Floating House Factor y phc32@bath.ac.uk The Dutch have a long history of living with the water, and Rotterdam a reputation for architectural innovation. This city, then, is the perfect place for a densification and intensification of the floating housing typology. The scheme proposes a new kind of factory to provide the building blocks of these proposed floating communities. Growing alongside the new startups blossoming in the surrounding masterplan, the scheme is not just a modern and efficient place of production but also a public beacon for a floating future. It balances technological innovation with an element of social outreach, skilling up disadvantaged local people and proving that manufacturing is not dead within the city.

MArch 6th Year Nederlandse Film Academie elenapardo92@gmail.com The project reacts to Rotterdam growing film culture and proposes the realization of the first film school in the city. Reflecting on the development of film as a urban phenomenon, the intent of the school is not simply to fulfil its educational purpose, but provide a place as a public livingroom that brings strangers together, using film as the connecting device. Detaching from the association of cinemas to black boxes, a generous aperture has been introduced in each of the room, allowing views over the river Maas. This intent reconnects film and urban reality, and Rotterdam, the city of future, seems the right place to imagine it.

MArch 6th Year Tromsø Matmarked Individual Project

conor_blakeman@hotmail.co.uk Tromsø Matmarked is a food market in the centre of the city, spanning across the main square. The building provides a forum for the exchange of food, goods and knowledge, engaging people with the various aspects of food production and encouraging more sustainable attitudes. A hydroponic farm, cookery school and restaurant are all exposed to the public, showcasing every stage of food from growth to waste.

Conor Blakeman

Anne Claxton

The scheme also restores the market’s function as a place of gathering forming an internal public space which is vital given the city’s extreme seasonality. The building acts as an icon drawing people to the main square and defining it as the centre of Tromsø.

b_curtis99@hotmail.co.uk Climate change is affecting the Arctic region greater than anywhere else in the world, with unprecedented changes occurring. The masterplan focussed on rapid and controlled growth to ensure Tromsø leads the race for the title of Arctic Capital primarily through its commitment to Arctic research. Set along the waterfront in the city centre, this scheme aims to find a seamless relationship between research and exhibition, prioritising the important work of Arctic oceanography whilst equally showcasing it in an interactive and unique way for eco-tourists. Two large tanks, the horizontal ice simulation tank and vertical biological oceanographic tank, each have their own requirements and conditions, in turn creating two main forms of the building. The exhibition follows a journey from lightness to total darkness, and experience common found through the seasonal Arctic flux.

The project will be centred on literature and language, and the continuation and protection of the indigenous art form of storytelling and spoken word poetry. The centre will house a new Sami library, performance space and areas for cultural exhibitions. The project explores how the sami culture can still be celebrated and integrated into a dramatically growing and changing tromso, as well as aims to help reduce stigma, stereotypes and inequity for the indigenous population.

Adam Sparrow

Jayne Barlow

Individual Project

Tromsø adam.sparrow1@btinternet.com Trom-Sjø sits within the shell of Tromsø’s historic shipyard. For years this was the starting point of the most famous and important Polar expeditions in the world, and as such is a place saturated in memory and heroism. However, while it is easy to focus on the heroic, there is an important other side to consider to human activity within the Arctic, notably the natural destruction resulting from the growth of Arctic population centres. This project exhibits the collected Polar artefacts of the city, as well as the remains of one of the explorer Roald Amundsen’s boats, the ‘Maud’. The scheme forges a further connection with the historic by inhabiting, repeating, and extending the forms of the shipyard workshop, while meditating on man’s relationship to the Arctic through a scrutiny of the sprawl of the coastline and encouraging a coexistence with nature and a natural inhabitation of manmade elements.
