URBAN European Centre for Urban Culture

Oscar Walheim BA (Hons) Architecture

Appealing to the vernacular style of industrial brick breweries and factories of Lille, my proposal for a European Centre for Urban Culture attempts to provide relief from the dense urban fabric whilst retaining tactility and prominence on a personal and human level.

LANDSCAPE Abbot’s mill visitor centre/museum Oscar Walheim BA (Hons) Architecture

Using Chaucer’s ‘Miller’s Tale’, my proposal combines fictional literary narrative with the historical narrative of Canterbury. By taking inspiration directly from the area’s history, I was able to create a reminiscent landscape that establishes an atmosphere for viewing the rest of Canterbury.

ROOF HS2 Trainline Station platform

Oscar Walheim BA (Hons) Architecture

Inspired by proposals for the HS2 train-line, my proposal is for a shelter on the platform of a railway station. The building aims to petrify the speed and dynamism of the high-speed trains, taking inspiration from tensegrity structures and Theo Jensen’s Strandbeest.
