“DESIGN IS A PLAN FOR ARRANGING ELEMENTS IN SUCH A WAY AS BEST TO ACCOMPLISH A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.” - CHARLES EAMES

ABOUT ME:

I’m Patricia, a creative designer eager to demonstrate the skills I have developed over the past three years. I consider myself an evocative conceptual designer able to express client’s requests through 2D and 3D visuals. I believe my work shows my dedication, passion and love as a designer, it conveys emotions and create experiences for clients. I believe that anyone can design and create anything they desire but to design and create with a purpose that can capture people’s curiosity and emotion is something that is infrequent. I aspire to be a good designer, in order to do this I am prepared to work hard, learn from criticisms and surpass expectations.

The Old Fire Station Grade II listed Date of Completion: 1910 69 Albion Street Jewellery Quarter Birmingham B1 3EA

Context Birmingham was once known as a ‘City of a Thousand Trades’. It was in the forefront in the Industrial Revolution and in the heart of it all was the Jewellery Quarter. A conservation area, the quarter is a national treasure containing one of the most extensive collection of surviving 18th to 20th century buildings specialising in the manufacture of jewellery and similar goods in Europe.

6

British watchmakers help developed the accuracy of watches in 1700’s by inventing components that allowed the movement to be more technical and precise. Despite the high quality watches that British watchmaker’s made, they were unable to adapt and compete with the new technology for mass production and the sales dropped.


17 JEWELS The Watchmakers Guild of Birmingham 17 Jewels aims to rekindle the art of watchmaking; a trade Britain was once known for. By preserving the traditional ways of making mechanical watches using modern technology. This will allow the trade to flourish, compete and surpass other countries that are known for making watches. The Guild of Watchmakers in Birmingham will increase highly skilled watchmakers and educate the public about the history of British watchmaking. Based on George Daniel’s philosophy in watchmaking, a British horologist thought to be one of the best in the world. He was known for his creation of the coaxial escapement and the first to make almost every part of a mechanical watch from by hand. Inspired by the process and the creation of mechanical watches. The complexity of these watches allow the concepts of intricacy, detail and time itself to be explored; creating a space that will capture and inspire anyone entering The Guild. Located in the Jewellery Quarters, the Old Fire Station will be adapted to facilitate a variety of activities that will help train journeymen (rank after apprentice) become masters of the trade, educate the public about the history of watchmaking in Britain and show British talent through watches. Working with Birmingham School of Jewellery where they offer an undergraduate course in Horology, a course students can take before entering The Guild. The partnership will encourage the importance of trade and conntecting it to the history of the area. 7


The personalised laser etched design cover be displayed face up together to show the complete technical drawing of the mechanical watch.

Albion Street Front Elevation

The Old Fire Station was built in 1910 and took a year to make. Designed by the architect T. G. Price. “A large asymmetrical extended L-plan block of buildings on a corner site located in Albion Street and Legge Lane. Inspired from Baroque style that combined Edwardian renaissance with a mixture of Birmingham Art and Crafts motifs. It created a bold and grand building that stood out from the other the building is 2-3 storey high split into 3 section that can be seen in the changes of the roof levels. A staggering 88 windows dominates the buildings with a variety of design from ornate stone frames and arches to brick frames.

16 17 Jewels is an exhaustive research divided into four sections:

Part I : • • •

10

Site analysis and history significant to the area and the subject of the project. Site strategy showing the connection of the building to its location. Environmental analysis and strategy of the building, its location and the surrounding area.

Part II : • • •

The origin of Horology in Britain Study of watchmaking in Britain Process of making handmade mechanical watches.

11


Part III : • • • •

12

Historical research of the building and its use. Structural and strategic analysis. Study of intended use and its users. Research of the curation for the exhibition.


Part IV: • • •

Case studies with interviews and analysis. Relevant precedents for concepts and design. Concepts and Narratives.

13


Original use of the building The fire station was built in response to the increase of accidents that happened around the Jewellery Quarter during the early 1900’s.

14


Current use of the building The old fire station has been divided and currently being used as a offices and a nursery.

15


16


Wearable Concept Inspired by the soldiers in WWW II who were injured and lost the ability to walk that found work in watchmaking. Wheels and gear formed as an armour to imply protection to the most important tool a watchmaker need, their hands. Movement can be seen in some gears using the mechanisms found in a music box.

17


Site Combine : Reincarnated Quarter A sensory exploration piece that allows guests to experience the history of the Jewellery Quarter during the Industrial Revolution. The map was traced in clay and highlighted using crushed coal. Selected areas were elevated in the form of miniature bricks to show the variety of trades available in the Quarter. Selected trades linked with watchmaking such as metals and jewels were coated in gold and silver. The guests who touched the piece will be left with coal marks on their hands that will remind them how the Quarter was during those times.

22


Conceptual Approach A mechanical watch made by hand can take years to complete, the reason becomes clear once the back is opened and components can be seen moving using just kinetic energy. The concept of The Guild as a mechanical watch was the main concept used to show appreciation to the complex process in creating these types of watches. Key components such as the main spring, balance wheel and escapement were reflected to the different spaces within the building. The concepts are translated into models and visualised into a space inside The Guild.

23


Building and visual development The concepts are scaled into building models to show how the spaces work together. A proposal for new structure to replace the existing to support the client’s consultation room in the first floor and the Grandmaster’s workshop the second floor .This allowed more space for the visitors in the exhibition on the ground floor. Other concepts such as hierarchy were used on the placement of the spaces within The Guild. The Grandsmaster’s workshop is located on the second floor suggests they have the highest authority. The hierachy can be connected to the positions of cornered buildings in the Jewellery Quarter, buildings located in the corners of the streets are more significant compared to the others surrounding it. The visuals are developed to create a story to show the activities happening inside The Guild.

The musical tower is an installation that provides watchmaker’s and guests in The Guild a different form of telling time. It works by creating sounds when the metal balls are dropped on steel panels. They are placed in specific order to create music that can be heard throughout The Guild.

Time in Presence The exhibition is located on ground floor on the corner of the street to have maximum exposure to the visitors around the Jewellery Quarter. Arched entrances that were previously blocked were opened together with the arched windows to create a space that connects the outdoor space and attracts visitors to enter. Large revolving glass doors with brass frames are installed to secure the exhibition when it is closed.

33


The Joint Bridge Two bridges were created to connect the smaller building to the main building allowing quick access around The Guild. The tour with clients starts at the smaller building where large machines are located to separate the noise and vibrations from workshops such as the Assembly and Polish workshops where they work with delicate components. The tour allows clients to understand the process of creating bespoke mechanical watches. It also explains why they were so expensive and take a long time to complete. 34

The History of Time Keeping in Brtain

An interactive exhibition allows visitors to explore the history of the British watchmaking in the ground floor of The Guild. A new steel frame structure will replace the existing walls creating a large open space where glass frames are suspended using a contraption made from gears controlled by the Grandmaster on the top floor. The map of the quarter will be engraved on the floor of the exhibition in celebration of its history

The Barrel Vault Contains all of the precious stones and metal used in creating the bespoke watches. It stores all of the components made by the Masters and the Journey men for safe keeping. The Barrel is made of glass panels with glass drawers reinforced by steel frame giving a translucent effect.

36


The Jewel A private installation consisting of thousands of components suspended from ceiling to floor. It creates an evocative experience that will leave a lasting impression to the clients visiting. It creates an excitement of the possibility of obtaining a bespoke mechanical watch from The Guild made by some of the most talented watchmakers in the world.

THE GRANDMASTER’S WORKSHOP


The assembly workshop where the journeymen train and practice the process of putting the components together.

A custom made watchmaker’s work bench was design to be personalised by watchmaker’s depending on their preference and how they work. The bench is made from solid timber panels with steel frame, a similar language that can be seen throughout the Guild. It has a number of features such as shallow drawers, steel frame lamp that covers the whole bench and adjustable seats.

Free Range Show 2016 Located at the Truman Brewery in Brick lane London, an annual exhibition event celebrating top creative graduates in the UK in fashion, art, graphics, photography and interior design. Leeds Beckett University exhibition was created and designed by the 10 chosen students including myself with the help of Gold Finger Factory an award-winning design, build and teaching platform centred around upcycling that creates bespoke furniture and interiors. The group was divided and given different roles in order to meet the deadline for Free Range. The task of our group was to design, curate the exhibition and oversee others to make sure the tasks are completed. With limited resource and budget, exhibition was inspired by the textile history in Leeds. Using fabrics to print the project proposals and strings to enclose the exhibition.

Location: Catterick Racecourse Catterick Bridge Richmond North Yorkshire DL10 7PE

Context A live project in collaboration with Greville Worthington, a previous judge for Turner Prize, a writer, curator and Director of Catterick Racecourse. The task was to create a brief and proposal for Greville for the Tote building located at the Catterick Race course. The aim was for each student to present their project to Greville and show creative ideas and proposals for the building.

50


INTER LOCK Unauthorised Artifical Insemination Sperm Bank Thoroughbred are known for their superiority against other breed in horse racing. In the UK there are strict guidelines when it comes to breeding horse specially thoroughbred. The Tote building will be transformed in to a fertility check-up laboratory specialising on Thoroughbred with a hidden illegal sperm bank. It will help specific clients who are only interested in winning races and not the breed. It works by extracting sperm from the Thoroughbreds coming in for their check ups. Once the sperm has been taken, it will be sold in the black market. 51

THE PUPPET HOUSE Reviving the old art of puppetry with a comtemporary performance space. The proposal was to reinvent puppet theatre to appeal to a variety of people. The theatre will specialise on marionette, a type of puppet that is controlled by a number of strings. An interactive space, the theatre can change and adapt depending on its audience and use. Based on the concept of control and tension in strings when it is fixed to a point.
