BETWEEN THE A12 AND THE RIVER LEA an exposition of academic speculations beyond 2012

Along the edge of the main Olympic site in the east end, a zone of transformation can be found between the A12 and the Lea River, taking in Hackney Wick, the Lee Navigation and Old Ford Lock. Over the past year the area has been a place of significant academic enquiry by students in London and further afield. The exposition showcases the coincidental diversity of thought and endeavor by the next generation of architects, designers and writers in time for the London Architecture Festival 2012.

Organiser: Colin Priest Participants: Architectural Association, Bartlett School of Architecture, Cambridge School of Architecture, Canterbury School of Architecture @UCA, Chelsea College of Art and Design, Greenwich University, Kingston University, Oxford Brookes University, Royal College of Art, South Bank University, Sheffield University, University of East London, University of Westminster. Overview The prospect of urban change and the everyday negotiation of regeneration can be uniquely witnessed in Hackney Wick. Cut off by the infrastructural margins of the A12 highway, the Lea River and the Greenway, the area has become a peripheral periphery – a working island within the boundary of an event island. Significant as an influential creative urban community on the edge of Olympic transformation, it is simultaneously a curiously solitary place on the brink of irreversible change. From a fuddled urban past of fish smokeries, out-of-the-way industrial complexes and extensive consultation processes, residents await an urban renaissance and immanent initiation of legacy. As a resident the transformation of the place has been most apparent in the disruption to everyday street life and the binary consolidation of its diverse communities. So began twitter.com/t_wickers – an extraordinary and eventful online record of public realm investment. It was on these regular check up walks I bumped into a number of former students coincidentally assigned the area as a theoretical site for study. With further enquiry and word of mouth a further eleven design studios were found – all unknown to each other. Percolating over the coming months a plan emerged to organise a rare exposition of sorts showcasing the work undertaken by all these different institutions in time for the London Festival of Architecture 2012. Contributing as an exposition, tabled dossiers and drawings open to the public, to a larger local discussion about how the next generation of architects and designers see this critical landscape. The designated area of enquiry sits vaguely between the Lea River inside the heart of the new Olympic site and the A12, taking in Three Mills to the south and Mabley Green to the north. Inside this area the transformation and stasis of urban renewal can be found and perhaps a motivating force for the breadth of inquisition. As this critical landscape paces towards legacy, the speed of change necessitates a sense of immediacy to enquiry, decisive opinion and representation of ideas for an alternative future. Where academe offers a space for speculation and imagination, potentials emerge that may contribute to how one envisages participation beyond the recognised status quo. Across the spectrum of experience, from year one to post-graduate study and discipline, film to architecture comes a larger challenge, how will the particular characteristics of this landscape remain and evolve?

AS THE RESULT OF A CHANCE ENCOUNTER WITH DESIGN STUDENTS STUDYING THE IMPACT OF THE OLYMPICS ON THE UNIQUE AREA OF HACKNEY WICK, COLIN PRIEST HAS ORGANISED THEIR WORK INTO AN EXPOSITION TO COINCIDE WITH THE LONDON FESTIVAL OF ARCHITECTURE

The prospect of urban change and the everyday negotiation of regeneration can be uniquely witnessed in Hackney Wick right now. Cut off by the infrastructural margins of the A12, the Lea River and the Greenway path, the area has become a peripheral periphery, a working island nevertheless. Significant as an influential creative urban community on the edge of Olympic transformation, it is simultaneously a curiously solitary place on the brink of irreversible change. From a confused urban melting pot of historic fish smokeries, out-of-the-way industrial complexes and, most recently, extensive consultation processes, residents await an urban renaissance and imminent initiation of legacy. As a resident of the area, I witnessed

that the transformation was most apparent to me in the disruption of everyday street life. So I began roaming the area and recording these events on twitter.com/t_ wickers – an eventful online record of public-realm investment. It was on these regular check-up walks that I bumped into a number of students coincidentally assigned the area as a theoretical site for study in their various degree courses. Eventually I discovered 12 design student groups working in the area, all unknown to each other. A plan then emerged to organise an exposition of sorts to showcase the group’s various work in time for the 2012 London Festival of Architecture. It includes dossiers and drawings from the student groups and the public, and contributes to a

larger local discussion about how the next generation of designers sees this landscape. The area of enquiry sits vaguely between the Lea River inside the Olympic site and the A12, taking in Three Mills to the south and Mabley Green to the north. In this area the transformation and stasis of urban renewal, and perhaps a motivating force for the breadth of inquisition, can be found. What follows is a brief precis of the work, which now froms part of the exposition. Constructing an ecology Before the Olympics the landscape was marked as brownfield and labelled as purposeless. In any city context this is debatable, but not many can dispute that the area has now been replenished with

wildlife and recreation. Project ADS5, led by Jon Goodbun, Kenny Kinugasa-Tsui and Justin CK Lau at the Royal College of Art, explored the construct of an ecology in an investigation that considered the near-future, non-linear environments of material production and socio-spatial events to uncover radical forms of breathing architectures. Water lines The guiding threads of the area are its water lines, with the Lea Navigation and Hertford Union Canal both cutting through its habitable space. Like Hackney Wick, the River Lea as an entity is difficult to pin down, as the pyscho-geographic lines determine a sense of self-discovery of the

62 banks and streets. The short film Wanderlust down the Lea, by Veronika Albrandt and Katharina Violeta Dressel from the degree course photography and contemporary media practice at University of Westminster, testifies to a natural condition of perpetual transformation. But these lines simultaneously divide and offer an opportunity to reimagine connection and the adaptation of the existing fabric. Stage 2 at the University for the Creative Arts at Canterbury, led by Pedro Castelo, Adam Hiles, Kristina Kotov, Matt Shaw/Rhys Jones and Gabor Stark, looked at the many linking bridges over the A12, Old Ford Lock, White Post Lane and Hackney Wick Overland station. It engaged with the particular environmental and social issues, to propose a different shelter providing a skin for each bridge. Kingston University addressed the Olympic legacy with an examination of the character of Hackney Wick and how the distinctive, everyday elements of the neighbourhood could inform the design

of a proposed bicycle workshop, diner or community arts space to reaffirm a sense of place. Negotiating the many islanded communities and the possibility of a constitutional ideal, Diploma Unit 9 at University of East London, led by Robert Thum, investigated the legitimacy of educational building programmes for the civic city as an activator for this postindustrial urban context. Meanwhile, strengthening civic proximity to a shared contextual culture of work and play was considered by Studios 1-3, in the University of Cambridge’s Department of Architecture, led by Miraj Ahmed, Dingle Price, Nikolai Delvendahl, Eric Marin, Bobby Open and Stephen Smith. Students evaluated the commonly found ‘factory and yard’ typology and the insertion of a library, public baths or a centre for furniture making in response to the anticipated increase in population.

a number of public-realm improvements, including the installation of place-specific art works by Martino Gamper, Rowan Durrant and Francis Upritchard, among others, to enhance the urban realm and improve connectivity across the site for key routes to the Olympic Park. Alongside the nodal public realm improvements by MUF art/ architecture, the area has an imperative spirit, examined by Studio 15: Laboratory of Spatial Self-organisation, led by Sam Vardy from the University of Sheffield. It studied the political and social tactic to reclaim personal and collective involvement in detached processes to configure selforganising assemblages of spatial practice. This form of creative making inspired the Wick Session, organised with publicworks and held at Sugarhouse Studios. It can be witnessed across the area and is particularly evident near the new White Building, recently renovated by David Kohn into a temporary theatre space. This project looked into the creation of temporary scenography for the theatre by FdA interior

To the north In the past year Hackney Wick has had

design, led by Tomris Tangaz, at Chelsea College of Art and Design. Hackney Wick’s loose urban grain has supported a particular freedom for its artistic communities, notably Hackney Wicked. It has a resilient attitude towards change, and allows overlooked communities of various backgrounds a place to articulate. Taking this as a starting point, students from U9 at Bartlett School of Architecture, led by Max Dewdney and Chee-Kit Lai, imagined an afterlife for these agents in the area. To the south The extent of transformation is significant around Stratford High Street and the Bow Flyover interchange, with pending planning applications for new housing developments. Students on the housing & urbanism MA/ MArch at the Architectural Association linked this to the larger Lea Valley development for a focus of study, highlighting the need for macro- and micro-scale thinking to organise a dynamic and responsive spatial conversation. Landscapes of mPOWERments,

by Unit 6, led by Cordula Weisser and Rahesh Ram at Greenwich University, propose such alternatives. The remaining fabric and its agents in this area offered an opportunity to a sensitive critique from Unit F, of Oxford Brookes University School of Architecture, led by Bruno Silvestre and Christina Godikse, surveyed the urban topography. Working in collaboration with Assemble Studio they subsequently proposed a number of urban landscapes, largely formed by the topography of infrastructure. Here issues of temporality were raised by catalysing the impact of the Olympic legacy on the fabric of the postindustrial city. In parallel, the Diploma Unit 2 and MA urban design team, led by Christoph Hadrys at University of East London, explored ways in which architectural interventions can mediate a synergetic urban life and relate to particularities of open land, and proposed acupunctural intersections. As this critical landscape heads towards legacy, the speed of change necessitates

a sense of immediacy for enquiry, decisive opinion and the representation of ideas for an alternative future. Where academia offers a space for speculation and imagination, potentials emerge that may contribute to how one envisages participation beyond the recognised status quo. Across the spectrum of experience, from year one to post-graduate study and discipline, film to architecture, comes a larger challenge: how will the particular characteristics of this landscape remain and evolve? The exposition runs until 8 July and is hosted by Sugarhouse Studios. sugarhouseestudios.co.uk, with the generous support of Assemble CIC at Sugarhouse Studios, Blueprint Magazine, and London Legacy Development Corporation.

Today’s metropolitan regions show tremendous diversity and complexity, with significant global shifts in the patterns of urban growth and decline. Architecture has a central role to play in this dynamic context, in developing far-reaching strategies and generating novel urban clusters. The programme focuses on important changes in the contemporary urban condition and investigates how architectural intelligence helps us to understand and respond to these trends. London’s Lower Lea Valley raises the question of the urban intensification of the periphery. Located east of the centre, and with the new high-speed rail infrastructure at Stratford and the Olympics site to the north, and London’s Canary Wharf financial services centre to the south, the area nevertheless exhibits the typical challenges of a former industrial zone at the edge of a metropolis. Can new spatial and use patterns, and fresh approaches to urban policy, guide us toward a strategy for a polycentric city-region? This work explores several key issues in the urbanism of the knowledge economy, from the proliferation of the creative industries, to the re-establishment of links between manufacturing and highervalue services, to re-thinking the multi-layered mobility infrastructure that runs down the valley. Other aspects of the productive city emerge around questions of the value of informal and irregular activity and the problems of marginalization. Still another theme coalesces around issues of density, intensity and urban mix, and changing patterns of working and living. In each of these themes we have sought crossovers between social, economic, and architectural reasoning Three groups over four years have focused on different arguments and concepts for change, with different choices of sites within the area, and with different spatial investigations.

Blinding Light, Spectacle at the Edge of London Spectacle has particular resonance in understanding the image of London in 2012: an incongruous mix of Olympic excitement and fears of civic disorder in the wake of fierce summer rioting. Both events are spectacular albeit in very different and extreme ways. The Olympics produce highly controlled media images whilst the riots presented a spontaneous scene of urban violence and disorder. This year Unit 9 investigated the 'Architecture of Spectacle' by studying London and Beijing, both cities famous for pomp and pageantry in epic proportions. We are interested in the juxtaposition of pre-Olympic London, and its imagined legacy, and the reality of Beijing post-Olympics. Project 1 – Imagined Afterlife Imagined Afterlife is to design a small building for a client body or community who you consider have been overlooked or under-represented in the 2012 Olympics, a group who have either been displaced by the developments of the Olympic Village, or excluded from the master-plan. The site of the proposals are located between Hackney Wick and Hackney Marshes, an area that has been included in the Mayor of London's proposed boundary for the Olympic Park Legacy Corporation. The proposal will form part of the larger master plan for this area with 'significant potential for regeneration and growth'.

City and Flexibility For the library’s role as a beacon of the community to be meaningful, it needs to become a long-term Àxture that remains involved with the changing life of its surrounding environment. This project emphasises Áexibility as a key consideration of the public space to produce a building that maintains a constant symbolic presence even as it adapts to the changing needs of the evolving community over the next 50 years

The Every day and the Extraordinary; Library / Workshop Studio 1 explored, the architectural potential in the relation between the quotidian and the contemplative world of the imagination through two urban ‘types’; the workshop and the library. The design challenge has been to work with the existing local typologies of ‘factory and yard’ and introduce a second typology that does not exist locally; the library. The nearest library is located in Central Hackney. There is a need for local libraries to provide education for young and old. The development buzzwords such as ‘Olympic legacy’ have the effect of sanitising a context of richly layered topography, material, typology and culture that is inherent in the area. The proposition for the Workshop, the Yard and the Library should explore the phenomenological relationships that can happen when exploring the dialogue between the visceral working environment of the workshop and the quiet haven of the library. A building of both ‘making’ and dissemination of information we ask how these might be evaluated in relation to shared activity as embedded within the architecture of the ‘local’ factory and the library. After a group survey and analysis of Hackney Wick, students selected a yard site for a small intervention exploring the everyday activities that happen and extraordinary events that could happen in such spaces. Propositions explored how the yards might maintain their existing working functions and how new temporal activities might be introduced. Speculations included projects such as a chicken farm, elevated allotments, theatre, viewing tower, cafes, playspaces etc. These projects allowed students to explore notions of dual use and hybrid programme. The Library/Workshop – to be sites on Stour St, or Swan Wharf – required the students to explore the programme in relation to the area but also the narrative and spatial potential between the two activities. Students reinvented the brief addressing different user groups and possibilities for library and workshop. Each programme is undergoing changing technology and methodologies. Projects addressed the local communities, such as the industrial, the artists and the residents of the area in different ways.

Building and Beacon Particular consideration was given to the current regeneration of the surrounding area. The centrality of project’s location makes it an ideal focus point for this new phase of the community life. The vision is of a building that acts as a beacon for Fish Island, whose striking composition attracts people from all around the developing surroundings and displays the area’s dedication to investing in knowledge. The hope is to create an iconic building that people are proud to use and that will assume as key a place in community consciousness as it does in the skyline.


Motivated by a desire to reinvigorate the concept of the library and keep up with rapid technological developments in the knowledge industry, this project privileges digital media as the primary mode of information exchange. The contemporary library is understood as a theatre of knowledge; an open information campus that celebrates and stages new ways of learning and responds to the call for spatial environments that facilitate emerging forms of information engagement.

Room and Permeability The ambition is for the library to serve as a community centre. Because its location guarantees passing footfall its facade must be attractive and inclusive. Notions of permeability and visibility were crucial in creating a learning space that is seen to interact with the social life of the area.

Detail and Character It was my ambition that the project should locate itself by and make reference to the industrial history of Fish Island. An awareness of the danger of this striking, modern building being perceived as an alien or insensitive implantation motivates my desire to materially integrate it into the community. The permanent structure makes respectful allusions to a former greatness and sets a precedent for development within Fish Island, while the design promotes bold visions for the future. The contextually grounded library becomes a place that people can develop a sense of loyalty to and ownership over.

Initial response to the site was to address the disparate communities and explore a program that integrated the artistic and residential communities both visually and through the concept of the tower rising from the workshop. The towers contain program while the ‘space-inbetween’ is not Àxed and can be adapted for many different uses. The Atrium space workshop advertises Fish Island’s creative industry through the exposure to the street- it is a place for the artists as well as for the community where artists can teach their craft/organise activities; especially during Hackney Wicked festival where large community driven installations can be made.

Industrial Sanctuaries; Bath House

Between the A12 and the River Lea, University of Cambridge

This year the Studio continued the process of understanding the current discourses and attitudes towards the gradual transformation of disused Victorian Infrastructure in London into public spaces. In the last two years we have looked at the way railway buildings have been demolished in favour of development and new transport infrastructure around the Brick Lane area, which subsequently informed the decision to study London’s canal network and the shift it has seen from backyard infrastructure to a space for leisure. This year the focus was on Hackney Wick and Fish Island, areas that sit adjacent to the Olympic Park and therefore at the midst of a signiÀcant urban transformation, which will be directly inÁuenced by the wider scale redevelopment planned for East London. As well as being home to a varied constituency, the area also contains a valuable industrial built heritage from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The central idea was to explore a series urban and architectural strategies to bring together different demographic groups that are present in the area: permanent residents, artists and industries. The speciÀc projects developed through the year were a pop-up green space and a public bath house, to explore the potential of both temporary and permanent interventions within the large quantum of unused buildings and yards in the area that seem to be in a limbo until the legacy plans are set in motion. Ever since their introduction in Victorian times, public baths have served an important communal role as meeting spaces, in addition to being a places for cleansing and physical well-being. As societies have changed with private bathing facilities becoming more available, there has been a decline in public baths. Hackney Wick’s old Public Baths at Eastway were converted into a local community centre, which closed in 2009.

The materiality expresses the two contrasting entities of the library and the workspace, the process of creation and the act of learning, the industrial and the new wealth of the Olympics. The gold celebrates the program of the library/ lecture theatre and viewing terrace.

Exploring the more permanent aspects of community life and work in the area, the bath house projects sought to establish a cultural and physical response to the needs of the existing and future inhabitants of the area. The work was articulated by studying historical references starting with the Roman Thermae and covering other bathing traditions such as the Turkish Hammam, the Japanese Onsen and the Finnish Sauna, to develop a sequence of spatial experiences with varying levels of natural light, temperature and humidity.

By re-directing the road layout around the site, a new public space is created in front of the building, enclosed by the Stour Cafe and units available for future use. The public space steps down to the canal and the Áoating allotments (project 1) creating activity around the building.

The bathhouse is a series of carved out spaces that use pure forms to create a powerful atmosphere. The cast elements of the steam bath (sphere), cold bath (trapezoid) and changing rooms are placed within the stable block and frame building of the Swan Wharf site, deÀning how the rest of the building is set around them. Beneath the cold bath is long warm bath, with columns piercing the water to create a series of interstitial spaces. At ground level a cafe activates a newly created public square, with terraced steps looking onto the canal. The project looks to create a very private experience within a public building, avoiding the typical treatment of the bathhouse as an excuse for pampering; rather it attempts to create a space for contemplation.

Project 2 The idea of communal bathing in the nude is somewhat alien to modern British culture, with almost all bathhouse precedents coming from different countries and eras. A key concern of the project was to view the bathhouse not as an extravagant luxury but as means to satisfying a fundamental need within a public context. Yet the act of cleaning oneself is a private act, not viewed as an experience you can share with people you do not know. I saw the bathhouse as something of a sacred space, analogous to a church, where one could partake in this private activity as part of a larger congregation. I therefore sought to create a series of spaces that could allow for private moments in a large space.

Project 2 A new public bath house designed to celebrate the role of water in the world through the ritual of bathing. It is inspired by the water cycle with a sequence of baths that vary in light, temperature and scale to create a sensory journey. Natural daylight is used as a dynamic force in opposition to the static water which forms an unbroken surface which one is always in contact with. The baths are protected from the outside by thick masonry walls and a small courtyard creates a sheltered public space that marks the main entrance.

Making and Exchange; Workshop / Craft School Plans for the ongoing regeneration of Fish Island focus on housing with a cultural / creative emphasis based on the current proliferation of artist’s studios. However, the ‘island’ has a history of Oil Works, Print Makers, Dye Makers, and other industrial processes. The canal is the artery that provided the means for the delivery of raw materials that were then prepared, processed and packed: products ranging from pickles to peanuts. The canal-side timber yards would have had constant trafÀc to and from the docks. As recently as the 1950s, up to 300 barges per tide – two tides per day – moved goods to and from the Thames along the Lea Navigation via Fish Island. These traces are manifest most obviously in the historic warehouses that set the street scale, buildings which have been reinvented and adapted over the years to suit differing demands. Most recently, live-work units and artist’s studios have dominated, with residents reworking the interior spaces for storage, work and everyday life. The buildings have a robustness that allows these changes to happen. Drawing on the area’s industrial pedigree, the studio concentrated on creating venues for making and exchange, offering points of focus for the community. Within the context of the project briefs and the questions of legacy and adaptability raised by Fish Island and the Olympic Park, the studio explored the ability of a building to absorb and withstand change, while still remaining rooted in its place. The Àrst project was a response to questions raised by the short-term event and longer-term legacy demands of the Olympic site. The title Market-Place could be understood as a place for the exchange of goods, services or ideas: essentially a point of interaction or gathering. There was a choice of three briefs: a bookshop, cycle repair shop / store, and a nursery (of the plant kind). Project 2 involved the design of a centre for furniture making, considered as the heart of the local community; a place where people can meet, share ideas and learn new skills. It drew on the deep culture of making that has formed the foundation of Fish Island, and on the presence of small industrial and warehouse units that house woodworking and joinery workshops on Fish Island and in Hackney Wick, and which offer opportunities for future employment or start-up. A series of internal and external public, exhibition, meeting and teaching spaces related to three primary workshops: for working raw materials (wood, metal, plastic…); assembling components (gluing, screwing, welding…); and Ànishing (oiling, spraying, polishing, upholstering…).

The project is to become a workshop that invites furniture makers/collectives for a period of residency where they would create unique collections for sale/exhibition in the main showroom and also collaborate with the larger artist community of Àsh island on sculptures/street furniture/public art installations that could be exhibited on an allocated piece of land just outside the workshop that fronts the canal.

The design takes the form of an L shape that crosses the river and links the two areas of Àsh island. The main activity of my building takes place in the public spaces at either end linked by the pedestrian bridge and along the public street front of the new routed road system.

Our project brief set 5 bridges/links as a selection of sites for the Hackney Wick design project: both walking bridges from the West over the A12, Old Ford Lock, White Post Lane & Hackney Wick Overland zone/bridge. A peripheral zone between Victoria Park and the Olympic site, students were to engage with the environmental and social issues to engage with a bridge or bridging link, via various technologies to speculate on a sheltering skin, a 1:1 prototype of their proposal was a requirement.

Steven Connor, ‘Michel Serres’s Mileux’ Paper given at ABRALIC (Brazilian Association for Comparative Literature) conference on ‘Mediations’, Belo Horizonte, July 23-26 2002. http://www.stevenconnor.com/milieux/ ‘this could be for instance a protective function, but could also refer to an energy-generating function, or to light generating or informationproviding surfaces. Out of this, a classification structure for surfaces divided into categories of Nano, Energy, Light, Climate and Information could be deduced as a next step.’ (Klooster, Thorsten & Klussman Heike; Surfaces, Membranes and Boundaries, Block Issue 2 Façade, 2011) ‘a change of focus from the appearance of a material to the performance of surfaces: ‘As structural, chemical and computational properties are integrated at nano-, micro-, and macro- scales, even the most traditional material might become more dynamic…increasingly allowing designers to determine behavior in advance, rather than simply taking it into account.’ Ibid.

PROJECT BRIEF BACKGROUND: At UCA Canterbury School of Architecture, BA level briefs are written as an overview for the whole year cohort; sites are introduced, project aims and outcomes described as an umbrella spread open. Studio Leaders are encouraged to devise their own strategies to guide the students along their own interests as much as possible.

PROJECT DURATION: 5 weeks

VICTORIA PARK was designated a public park in the 19th century as an open green space for the people of the East End hence its local nickname ‘People’s Park’ or Vikkie Park. It is an important link in the Lea Valley green corridor starting at the Thames River at Limehouse, via Mile End Park through Hackney Marshes. A corridor that links the marshes and canal system whose locks assist boats to adjust to topographical changes through to West London and the Thames at Limehouse (south) and north towards Manchester and beyond.

FISH ISLAND, HACKNEY WICK is a district which straddles two East End Boroughs of London: Hackney & Tower Hamlets situated in a flood plain (Lea River) eased and industrialized via canals and motorways in the 19th century. It is a western fringe of the Olympic site. In its industrialized history, various science led technologies in this area were tested and claiming invention in the area, clay and geological substrates were excavated. Synthetic plastics, natural polymers, textiles, dyestuffs industry, an oil distillery, confectionary, paper mill, dry cleaning etc were developed as chemists, scientists and academics were hired by various companies to research and eventually manufacture readymade products and processes. The first London Sewers were placed in a straight line from Beckton to London which now is part of the raised level Capital Ring Greenway Path which cuts through the southern zone of Fish Island.

5 sites were chosen, a grand tour prepared, a tour guide secured, the date was set for the 1st Feb 2012. 70 students migrated from Canterbury to meet at St John’s Parish churchyard, Stratford at 10:30.

The second component of this brief was a selection of links (bridges, locks, train stations etc), which at the time (Feb2011) were operational, were once main arteries allowing access to Hackney Wick/Fish Island or were relatively clearly documented as possible arteries present and future (under construction) to enable questionable ‘public’ access to and from the Olympic site; part of a larger network of infrastructures (overland trains, canal systems, walking/cycling routes, etc).The focus of this brief is the fabrication, detail, technologies of a sheltering skin for each location. A 1:1 prototype was a requirement for submission.

In recent discourse on surface and membrane, the functionalization2 of surfaces (performance) or ‘technologisation’ of materials3 has been theorized to engage ‘not just with territorial, environmental and representational role (of the envelope) but a political (and social) one too…the building envelope is possibly the oldest and most primitive architectural element. It materializes the separation of the inside and outside, natural and artificial and it demarcates private property and land ownership (one of the most primitive political acts’4

This brief introduces our second years to the discourse of the ‘face’ of architecture. ‘With the statement about the house as second skin extending our sensory system, Michel Serres has expressed the idea of the envelope or shell of a building as a significant synthetic extension to our bodies, that aids us in relating to our surroundings. Here, concepts of the membrane and the surface stand for its openness, while concepts of the boundary stand for its closure. In fact the permeability of the shell is an essential measure of the relationship to the environment.’1

* This post’s title is a reference to The Onion’s recent and very funny headline: Artists Announce They Have Found All The Beauty They Can In Urban Decay.

Sinclair’s vision ultimately suggests an ever tinier and more myopic introversion, a celebrating of the incidental, peripheral, neglected and marginal to the point where you can’t see anything else or do anything else ever again. He’s right to rail against the class cleansing inherent in regeneration projects (although other people like Patrick Wright and Owen Hatherley have done this much better and with less sentimentality), but it’s hard to get away from his own bourgeoisie conceits and fusty contraryism. Whatever, his eyeor-ish traipsing around East London made me look forward much more to the 100 metres.

But buildings always replace other things. They are always about destruction as well as construction and we celebrate ones now that must have appeared insensitive behemoths when they were completed. As an architect it is difficult to share Sinclair’s deep but affected cynicism about new building. Sure, much of it is shit but then again, most of the buildings in the Olympic Park aren’t. A couple (Hopkins’ Velodrome and Zaha Hadid’s Aquatic Centre) even look genuinely beautiful. And if you can’t build a new urban park in a place like Stratford, where can you? The hiking of rents in the area on the back of the games is shameful for sure, but it is more symptomatic of wider problems in the capital to do with the woeful lack of affordable housing.

Instead he offers an aestheticised vision of semi-dereliction. At one point during his film he pointed to a breakers yard and declared it as good as a Joseph Beuys artwork. This is the urban hipster version of shabby chic, an effete observation that recalls the British painters of Saint Ives patronising (in every sense) Alfred Wallis. At other points he wanders around expressing exasperation at builder’s hoardings causing him some minor inconvenience or rails at the cleaning up of the boating lake in Victoria Park. But these seem like the gripes of the terminal misanthrope, a Victor Meldrew-ish exasperation of life at its most petty and a hopeless railing against any form of change. It’s hard when knocking Sinclair not to come across as some vapid boosterist and one can sympathise with his visceral dislike of the language (and a lot of the effects) of regeneration, but he also has that hopeless, miserable English disease of thinking the worst of everything. The Olympics will be a disaster, he seems to say, simply because everything is. Like Marvin the Paranoid Android wandering the Hackney Marshes, he suggests that all new building is pointless, all attempts at planning doomed and any development always the product of base venality.

Lately he’s been popping up all over the place, proselytising against the London Olympics, or promoting his latest book Ghost Milk, depending on which side of the divide you’re on. He has been in The Observer newspaper sparring with former Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport Tessa Jowell about the supposed ‘legacy’ of the games and he recently produced a short film for BBC2’s Newsnight. This film showed Sinclair at both his best and worst. There are many reasons to be sceptical and even downright hostile to the games - the tyrannical and absurd security measures, the treatment of river boat dwellers on the River Lea and the loss of allotments, natural habitats and open space amongst them. Sinclair is right to point these things out, but there are other arguments to be made about the economic and political effect of the games and Sinclair isn’t really making them.

Iain Sinclair divides people. To be honest, he divides me. I’m a big fan of some of his books, Downriver most specifically, but London Orbital and bits of Lights Out For The Territory too. His work undoubtedly has a degree of cultural importance. He has documented spaces and places, processes of urban change and renewal that might otherwise have gone ignored. He’s also guilty though of self-aggrandisement, self-parody, cronyism (endless vainglorious cameos from tediously eccentric friends) and, worst of all perhaps, a certain fetishisation of urban decay. Like a modern day aristocrat on the Grand Tour, Sinclair seeks out poverty and destitution and turns it into some aesthetic tableau. Rusty factory units are his romantic ruins and tramps huddled below underpasses his ruddy faced yokels.

This is where our project comes in. Two of our collective, Warmbaby, recently moved to San Francisco and responded to a call for artists from a local group of curators. Our approach was to feed the curiosity of what is behind the boarded up spaces. Blank facades make you wonder; what is behind there? That then made us wonder, what *could be* behind there? We set out to ask the local community and interested tourists, to suspend reality and imagine the kind of spaces that they would like to be behind these boards. Their suggestions and feedback would then inform small models viewed through a spy hole from the street. Giving people an opportunity to imagine what this area could be like, not in an urban planning ‘big idea’ kind of way, but in small and curious ways.

In the past few years the city of San Francisco and other interested bodies have attempted a new kind of regeneration; addressing the area’s problems from many different angles in long-term smaller steps - avoiding the ‘big unified plan.’ One of these was to give big tax breaks to companies with offices in the area, this has seen companies such as Burning Man and Twitter move in. Other steps include addressing public safety and encouraging a variety of housing. Another is to encourage community based arts projects, and to create a ‘Mid-Market Arts District’. The cheap rents in the area have allowed artists to flourish here over the past twenty years or so, and investing and encouraging these groups has been largely successful with projects such as ‘Art in Storefronts’ (putting a cellist in the opticians for example) and the opening of small community galleries and studios, as well as theatres and dance companies. It is seen as important to nurture this area naturally, and allow the communities and projects that are there to develop in their own way, without ultimately gentrifying it and pushing out those who have lived there for years.

Mid Market Street is a thoroughfare through the heart of San Francisco, for 5 or 6 blocks in each direction it has fallen steadily into disrepair and crime over the past 80 years. In the 1920s, teeming with theatres and electric street cars, it was renowned as one of the great streets in the world. After the theatres declined in popularity and closed, various attempts were made at saving it through large-scale ‘beautification’ projects, which had the opposite effect. The Embarcadero Freeway compounded Mid Market’s troubles in the 50s, and the late 60s saw the city closing the street to traffic for 6 years to build the underground Bay Area Rapid Transportation system (BART), resulting in many shop closures. Its proximity to the high crime Tenderloin Area has resulted in a desolate, seedy and often dangerous area.

The scope for interaction is twofold; we ask visitors to this site, and locals on the street what they imagine could be behind these boards and we build some of their ideas into the models. Then locals and passers by look into the holes and imagine what could be there, and start to consider the hidden spaces and possibilities of their city.

Passers-by spy through the peep holes and see small models depicting fantasy ideas from local residents, shop or office workers. These fantastical little models sit behind the boarding, in the unseen spaces. The aim of the Market Street peep boxes is not to imitate realism, but to give a chance for the locals to imagine what could be in these private spaces. The glass lens (spy hole) as a device allows the participant to suspend reality as they peer through, imagining that they are really looking into a private fantasy world.

“Wouldn’t It Be Nice…” is a public arts installation for the Mid Market Art Project in San Francisco that asks people to engage with the city and wonder what could go into the empty buildings and lots on Market Street by inserting peep holes into the boarded up walls that reveal glimpses into fantastical worlds contained within peepbox models. The piece was installed in the boarded up spaces on Market street, San Francisco in April 2012 and it is hoped it will be installed in London as part of the London Festival of Architecture 2012.

We would like to bring our peep box models over to London after their run in Mid Market Street. We want to recreate the peculiar, but familiar, fantasies of the San Franciscans in a London Street to share Mid Market’s story and to contribute to ‘The Playful City.’

The story of the site is all too familiar in American and English cities, where the out of town shopping malls and cinemas pull the life out of the centre of town. San Francisco’s engaging creative response is working, but it has a long way to go, and the level of participation from the local community is staggering. A framework has been created in which any interested party has support to create their own project and improve the area in a small way. This is an inspiration for many high streets in ailing cities and towns across the US and the UK.

We built 4 boxes, each one responding to one or two suggestions from the public. The boxes were first installed in a gallery in the San Francisco Arts Institute one week (16-21 April 2012) prior to installation in the busy UN plaza, Mid Market Street (29 April-30 May 2012). We are hoping they will add, in their small peculiar way, to the re-imagining of the area as an Arts District. The aim of them is not to imitate reality, but to encourage thought and reaction to unconsidered possibilities for the area, and give locals a chance to visualise their ideas in-situ. It also reinforces the notion that planning for cities does not have to be top-down sensible and dogmatic, but it can be user-led, strange and adventurous instead. Something that the decline and the slow regeneration of Mid Market Street exemplifies.

ADAM HILES graduated with Distinction from Canterbury School of Architecture, UCA in 2011. Adam’s work explores the latent socio-political tectonics of ‘narrative infrastructure’ - a departure from the notion of infrastructure as a mere pragmatic element that organises territories. He is also interested in alternative ways of mapping the ways that individuals are manipulated by the urban realm, and using these to develop phenomenological architecture. His work has been twice nominated for different RIBA awards and twice exhibited at the Royal Academy of Art. He also been featured in London’s Dreamspace Gallery, the Folkestone Triennial and numerous other exhibitions across London and the South-East. Adam has worked in practice in London and Canterbury and is currently a Second Year Studio Tutor at Canterbury School of Architecture, UCA

After the performance, they are abandoned, broken up and forgotten. The Yard Theatre in Hackney Wick, near to the site of the 2012 Olympic Games, emabraces the temporal and changing nature of theatre and performance spaces. The Yard occupies an abandoned warehouse space and has been designed using reclaimed local materials by Practice Architecture. The client for this live brief, The Yard Theatre and its artistic director, Jay Miller, requires an exciting new stage set and performance space for a production and modern interpretation of The Bacchae by Euripides. Embracing the temporary nature of performance, the challenge to design a space that celebrates its seemly, use and disassembly over a matter of just days and weeks.

An exciting area on the fringes of the Olympic Park, earmarked for imminent regeneration. It has established light industrial uses and a long established artists, artisans and small manufatcurers community. A new AAP (Area Action Plan), currently under consulation within the adjoining Councils, envisages a new town square around the station. This site has provided the main focus of our investigations. Students have developed their own masterplan for this (albeit small) area and proposed buildings with programmes they seem fit; resulting in a new Hub for a post-neoliberal city fragment. Proposals react to, and provide social, economical and architectural alternatives for the recent developments across the Park - namely Stratford International and Westfields.

The Olympic Legacy This year the school is addressing The Olympic Legacy. Addressing the issue of Legacy, after the sports spectacle has passed, through exploring how we can help daily life in the city. Hackney Wick is a city quarter at the North-eastern edge of the Olympic Park, separated by the ‘Hackney Cut’, a navigation channel of the River Lea. Hackney Wick’s southern edge is bounded by the Hereford Union Canal, and its western and northern edges by the A12. By investigating the character of Hackney Wick; the distinctive elements of the neighbourhood which create a sense of place. We then analysed the proposed activity, the manufacture, repair and sale of bicycles, food and community art space . Finally bringing site and activity together in an architectural proposal responding to the everyday life of the site.

Wick Session No:05 ‘Picking up the pieces’ brought together makers and cultural producers from the Hackney Wick area which explore issues around, recycling, reuse, and the collective production of public situations. The session alongside the academic exposition Between the A12 and Lea River, featured projects and practitioners which draw from the physical, cultural and creative resources of Hackney Wick and its proximity to produce inventive solutions. Highlighting ways of working and thinking which encourage a hands on approach to making with results ranging from stools to temporary cultural spaces and everything in between. Speakers gave a short introduction to their work followed by an open conversation. Speakers included: Bruce Ingram Neil Mcdonald Martino Gamper Takeshi Hayatsu Assemble public works The session was part of the exposition Between the A12 and Lea River organised by Colin Priest and will be hosted by the Wick Curiosity shop, supported by public works and r-urban and Wick on Wheels.

Slides from a presentation given by Kingston University architecture tutor, Takeshi Hajatsu at the Wick Session held at Sugarhouse Studios on Tuesday 3rd July 2012.

Subsequently, the complexity of the main project (production, exchange, dwelling) is largely due to the topographical conditions of each of the three sites situated in the corners of Sugarhouse Island. These three sites sample the urban nature of Stratford, an urban landscape largely formed by the topography of infrastructure, where issues of temporality are raised by the catalyzing impact of the Olympic legacy on the fabric of the postindustrial city.

P03. Stratford Phase I - Sugarhouse Lane | Group Work + Individual Work Following early studies about the urban topography of Stratford, the unit developed a collaborative project with Assemble Studio CIC, based in Sugarhouse Lane, on the south side of Stratford High Street. The architecture recently built by Assemble - the Cineroleum in Clerkenwell and the Folly for a Flyover in Hackney Wick - set the architectural framework and the agenda for this project, in terms of subjects and issues debated within the studio and taken into consideration in the design work. Debate, already initiated, on issues of urban topography and temporality as well as aspects of materiality, [LJ[VUPJZ HUK JVUZ[Y\J[PVU TL[OVKZ ^LYL PU[LUZPÄLK [OYV\NOV\[ [OL JVSSHIVYH[PVU ^P[O (ZZLTISL The purpose of the project was to set up design stategies to extend - in time, use and space - an existing programme ZL[ V\[ MVY [OL ZP[L I` (ZZLTISL ;OL HPT ^HZ [V [YHUZMVYT [OL ZP[L PU[V [OL JVSSLJ[P]L»Z OVTL HUK H YLZV\YJL VWLU [V [OL SVJHS W\ISPJ *VUZPKLYH[PVU ^HZ HSZV NP]LU [V [OL PU[LNYH[PVU VM UL^ \ZLZ HUK HJ[P]P[PLZ PU[V (ZZLTISL»Z WYVWVZLK programme of a workshop and studio space, performance/screening space, cafe, storage and other ancillary facilities. 0U NYV\WZ ^L ^VYRLK HZ H KLZPNU [LHT PU HU HYJOP[LJ[\YHS WYHJ[PJL 6UJL [OL WHY[Z VM [OL WYVQLJ[ OHZ ILLU PKLU[PÄLK HUK design work delegated, each student developed an element of the design individually, however in permenant dialogue with the other elements of the team.

In this project we wanted to create an event made by its users for its users to which visitors can contribute something and feel a sense of authorship after they leave. The live library is a project involving the participation of its visitors. The space evolves throughout the duration of the event. Small marks made by the users constitute the make-up of a series of books that inhabit a modest bookshelf running through the three main areas of the site. Visitors enter the site and collect a blank book from the shelf.

Our proposal for Sugar House was primarily geared towards supporting Assemble CIC’s plan for the interior of Sugar House as well as responding to the OPLC’s desire to regenerate certain areas and communities in East London through cultural and creative activities. Abandoned or disused pallets from the surrounding industrial area could be salvaged and used as easels/canvases in an event entitled ‘Paint Your Pallet’ which would take place in the Sugar House courtyard. Families from the community could come and take part in this activity designed to spark new relationships and unite the JVTT\UP[` 7HSSL[Z ^V\SK HSZV IL \ZLK PU [OL JV\Y[`HYK [V JYLH[L ZLH[PUN PU[YPN\PUN WH[[LYUZ VU [OL Ă…VVY [V KPYLJ[ WLVWSL HUK IPJ`JSL WHYRPUN 6UJL painted the pallets would be mounted onto the Sugar House façade, creating a community mosaic in time for Assemble CIC’s theatre/cafĂŠ opening.

The industrial archetype is becoming more of a rarity as compulsory purchase forces industry away. This transitional environment has attracted many artists and designers due to its rapid and unique change. The small number of former industrial units that remain are now occupied by a number of art and design groups. It is from this stance that I choose to create an art production house to build up a network of creative industries that can add a J\S[\YHS LSLTLU[ [V [OL UL^ YLZPKLU[Z HUK M\[\YL [V\YPZ[Z VM :[YH[MVYK ;OL WYVWVZHS HPTZ [V IL VWLU MVY [OL 6S`TWPJZ PU VYKLY [V L_JOHUNL PUMVYTH[PVU PU [OL MVYT VM HY[ L_OPIP[PVUZ Z[HNL WYVK\J[PVUZ HUK HY[ JSHZZLZ MVY [OL SVJHS JVTT\UP[` 3VJHS HY[PZ[Z ^PSS WYVK\JL L_OPIP[ HUK YLZPKL PU [OL I\PSKPUN ZV that they build more of a cohesive relationship between the art and their relation to the local area.

The site is in a former industrial hub of London that has been designated as an urban rejuvenation area by the Olympic Park Legacy Company. The arrival of the Olympics to the local area has seen construction of mass commercial housing projects being implemented to meet the predicted demand. This dramatic transition from former industry to mass commercial residencies is having dramatic effects upon the character of Stratford.

A special notion is given to the continuity of spaces and possible movements through the building – vertical or circular.

The Spiral Allotments - Inspired by the lack of greenery and abundance of grey infrastructure. There are 12 year waiting lists for allotments in Stratford. The building provides homes for 8 farmers, they have an allotment space on the spiral ramp, a market stall for the year round farmers market and an individual roof garden. The spiral allotments provide the community with locally grown food. They give local youths the opportunity to develop a new understanding and stronger connection to the production and growth of food we need.

A view to change: The Stratford area is in the process of change. With this, new views are forming. The Sugarhouse lane site captures views in four directions. The building’s form is based around these views in an attempt to frame and capture them. Using the precedent of Herzog de Meuron’s Vitra house lead rise to an investigation into terraces, which are common to the area, and how a stereotypical form could be altered and pivoted around points to form a new structure.

Lau Students: Aisyah Ajib, Clio Capeille, Joseph Deane, Diana Elia, William Fisher, Chang-Yeob Lee, Jack Wates, Rain Wu Urban Metabolics: new materialisms and the timing of space The question of materiality has re-emerged in both philosophical and architectural debate in recent years. ADS5 explores what is at stake in these questions, in relation to the ecological, political, technological and aesthetic challenges and possibilities facing architectural practice today. Grounding ourselves at Hackney Wick, adjacent to the Olympic Site, we design experiments with temporality, initiating in Prigogine and Stengers memorable phrase, 'a study of the timing of space'. Working across a range of scales – the metabolism of the city, the processes of material production, building construction and use, and socio-spatial event – we suggest that a study of the timing of space might open up new ways to approach ‘the environmental question’ beyond more conventional ‘sustainable design’ approaches. There is a welcome diversity to the work within the studio – reflecting no doubt the complexity and contradictions of architectural and urban conditions more broadly. A range of near-future scenarios are currently being explored, and research preoccupations include hands-on making combined with digital techniques, design activism and urban policy, material processes and the potential to imagine alternative futures.

Hybrids, cross breeding, grafting, Y3 at Southbank University was tasked with producing building projects by cross breeding and hybridising self-generated programmatic interests with a series of specific building briefs resulting from an exercise in collective masterplanning. Students started out by assuming the role of clients to specify a series of public eventsbasede building briefs for sites around the Hackney Wick, before slipping back into their roles as architects and masterplanners to generate large scale visions for the area and locating them along a post-olympic timeline. Subsequently, they generated hybrid briefs for sites of their choice, taking into account speculative ‘sitting tenants’ in the form of found or inherited building specifications from the earlier exercises. The result are hybridized,cross programmed insertions into widely varying scenarios for the Hackney Wick, yet drawing upon a collective programmatic notion.

The studio focuses on how architecture is made through practices, and specifically how the practices self-organisation might inform the practices of architecture and urbanism. Self-organisation is a political and social tactic to reclaim personal and collective involvement in processes from which citizens are usually removed. Selforganisation is concerned with the creation of new spaces that are not defined by the dominant social relations that are imposed by late-capitalism, by developing innovative approaches towards group dynamics, alternate economies, modes of organising, autonomy, the commons, recycling, collaboration and exchange. Through an investigation of existing networks of production and activity and potential self-organised practices we will reconsider the role of the architect and the role of design. Ambitious individual design proposals are developed for self-organising and autopoietic assemblages and within these systems the spatial and material implications of self-organised processes are considered to produce designs at a range of scales that consider what other architectures are suggested by proposing a different set of spatial practices.

This often subversive inhabitation of the marginal or liminal spaces will be attained through physical manipulations of the existing physical environment as well as the manipulation of existing codes that currently regulate spatial production [see tactics for claiming space]. I am also proposing that the remaining artist community will actively seek to benefit from the increased footfall as a result of the Olympic site development and new station link both as a means of generating income and positively engaging with this new transient community of visitors.

I have engineered this scenario in order to explore the alternate means by which the artist community may retain a presence [and perhaps even thrive] in the area in the wake of the inevitable rising rent prices, speculative development and a failing Olympic legacy plan. I am proposing a scenario in which, after having been displaced from their existing live work environments [see above] in favour of more lucrative office rental and apartment living opportunities, the remaining artists begin to actively lay claim to spaces that have otherwise remained unoccupied. These inhabitations then form a network of mutually beneficial spaces facilitating the continuation of the process of art production and consumption.

TACTICS FOR CLAIMING SPACE

Queens Yard

Queens Yard

Mother Studios

I am primarily focusing on the area between Hackney Wick Rail Station and the Hertford Union canal [see fig.04]. This area plays host to three of the larger buildings currently occupied by the artist community, namely Mother studios + the elevator gallery, Everett House [live work studios] and the White post lane studios + Schwartz gallery. This area of Hackney Wick is also set to become a primary means of accessing the Olympic Park [via gate 14] from the station and as such presents a primary location for speculative development. There currently exists a plan to create a more direct link between the station and white post lane to the south leading to gate 14. This connection will therefore become part of any future proposals.

THE VISITOR_

The contained and intimate nature of the engagement, enforced by the narrow configuration of the booth space and the close proximity of artist and subject through the wall, offers the opportunity for conversation and the spreading of local news and gossip regarding future activities and events.

This proposal represents one of a series of site interventions that set out to explore possible moments of encounter between the artist community and the stranger. This particular proposal investigates the moment of interaction between just one artist and one stranger. The booth serves as a space wherein the stranger may have his or her portrait drawn by an artist in exchange for a small fee. This encounter, therefore, offers the Stanger the opportunity to participate in a minor form of cultural production whilst simultaneously generating a small income for the artist. In this sense the booth can be defined as a type of shop in as much as it facilitates the sale of a material commodity, i.e. the drawn portrait, as well as an exchange of both time and skill.

2_ A narrow step serves as the sole physical interjection into the street and this minor negotiation of level begins to physically engage the visitor with the experience.

1_ The booth is positioned adjacent to the existing white post lane studios. The street is addressed directly by means of a single narrow door that is left ajar whilst the booth is active – a passive means of generating intrigue and enticing the active explorer.

3_ As the initial threshold is crossed a motion sensor triggers a bell, alerting the artist to the presence of the visitor, activiating the encounter.

BEYOND THE CONVENTIONAL FRONT, PRINT COLLABORATORS ARE TAKEN THROUGH A SEQUENCE OF INCREASINGLY UNORDINARY SPACES WHERE ‘ZONE BOUNDARIES’ ARE LOWERED. A STRONG VISUAL LINK CONNECTS DOMESTIC BEDROOMS TO SUSPENDED WRITING BOOTHS; THE SELF HELP COMMUNITY PRINT SPACE TEMPORALLY EXPANDS INTO THE INDUSTRIAL DE-INKING SPACE DURING OUT-OF-HOURS.

Paper Making Retrainees

The co-operative’s social remit involves running courses in paper making for unemployed people from the three neighbouring boroughs.

Every person attending a paper-making training course is eligible for CPR co-operative membership

Paper recycling staff are made aware of the printmaking activities at the site when the printmaking membership indicates that it has confidence in them.

Community Paper Recycling (CPR)

Stack effect ventilation

The invitations are made based on a commitment to campaigning printmaking with ambitions for greater equality and social justice in East London.

CPR’s Board of Directors invite eight of East London’s most prolific political printmaking groups to take up a permanent residency in the project’s domestic refuges.

East London’s radical political printmaking collectives are returning to physical space and the printed page due to increasing internet censorship.

Invited to return to physical space/production

the location of printmaking activities in secret

The group is searching for survival. It will begin to make invitations to East London’s radical printmakers to settle in the Fish Island refuges, as well initiating district-scale paper recycling processes.

The group form the board of directors for Community Paper Recycling (CPR), a common interest community co-operative that will include both recycling and printmaking members.

A group of six besieged actors from paper recycling and radical media are brought together by me as architect and network instigator.

Co-operative instigated by architect

The social remit is realised through retraining courses in paper making open to unemployed people in the neighbouring boroughs.

The economic remit is to generate revenue, both to expand the recycling activities and support the printmakers.

CPR’s Productive Front of Paper Recycling has economic, environmental and social remits.

Economic and social remit

Recycled paper store

CPR is a community of interest co-operative of paper recyclers led by a board of six directors. A clandestine group of radical political printmakerstake take refuge within the co-operative and the architecture, forging interdependencies between the two realms.

Printmakers’ Link

THE PROJECT IS CONCEPTUALISED AS A SERIES OF INTERDEPENDENCIES BETWEEN THE TWO PROGRAMME ELEMENTS OF PAPER RECYCLING AND RADICAL PRINTMAKING, AS WELL AS TO EXTERNAL ACTORS. INTERDEPENDENCIES ARE MECHANISMS OF MUTUAL SUPPORT BETWEEN CO-OPERATING AGENTS. BOTH ACTIVITIES BENEFIT FROM THEIR INTER-LINKING SOCIAL-POLITICAL, ENVIRONMENTAL AND ARCHITECTONIC DEPENDENCIES.

This Th is is made possible by the site’s increased density, enabled by the mechanism of collective le living engendered in the Build Store’s transitional cohousing.

The Community Land Trust’s ownership model Th del creates much mu ambiguity over the definition of community, when not all the members of the community defi ommunity are eligible forr a home hom on the site. The Bream Street CLT counters this by creating new w communit communityy amenities, en in the form of two new connections to the canal, a public boulevard and square a with play facilities for anyone in the local area.

The responsibility for the upkeep of the shared Th d ga gardens rests with the surrounding surrounding households, seholds, facilitating community community co-operation co-operation.

E h house Each hou or flat fl has h access too one off two private shared h d gardens. d These Th spaces are ar secure and an visible from the individual dividual homes, and th thus are a safe place for children n to play, compensating ompensating for the lack ack k of public space in Hackn aackney Wick.

The Bream Street Community Land L d Trust’s T ’ Common C mo H House is a private ammenity, shared between the residents. The Common House’s use completion - the final phase of the Bream Street CLT’s construction - enables th the CLT to become a distinct entity from the Build Store.

The new orangery housed inside the existing steel frame is a communal asset. The activity of maintaining this shared ammenity becomes a social enabler, encouraging group co-operation.

This process creates a more diverse housing stock, with a range of different lifestyles Th accomodated across the site.

W hen designing their homes, the residents are free to choose the degree ee to w which they share accomodation with their neighbours. Some adopt a very ery libe liberal approach to cohabitation, sharing most of their accommodation, some are more conservative choosing to share only a portion of their living space, while others thers choose cho to only use the communal facilities of the Common House.

Shared utility spaces enable the individual homes to be reduced in size, increasing the habitable density and allowing more people to live in the Build Store’s transtional cohousing.

Communal living, cooking and eating spaces enable cohousing - a new model for collective living. The cohousing model encourages people to share social activities and chores, creating a more sociable and sustainable neighbourhood.

fig.1 : Formulation of structural system for the artist community.

Exisitng Artist community in Hackney Wick called ‘Performance space studio’ is the client since it targets the same approach with its liberal manifesto and belonging. The site Swan Wharf ‘s extended warehouse falls in the heritage conservation area. The concept is not to impose a structure or a mass on the community. Considering the brutal concrete frame of the warehouse, the artist themselves would squat the frame where they could built their own built form for dwelling and studio space. By providing temporary and mobile modules like moving dismantable slabs and walls, the artist community would adapt and re- arrange according to the functions and requirements they would seek to self organise. The materials that they use would be re-cyceld ones to cut down the cost and have a sustainabe approach.

The approach to sustain the artist community even after gentrification and regeneration hits the place and the rents increase. Creating a collective interaction within the community, to withstand the development and form a strong structure of economic, political, cultural which helps to self-organise them.With this structural system they would be constantly creating to sustain their living and evolve a social environment.

The main sites of interest and student projects were located along Open Land in East London, stretching from the Lea Valley to Barking Creek. To name just a few conditions, the area is subject to some of the most diverse inner urban wildlife, highly deprived neighbourhoods, but also some of the most intensive urban developments in Europe. East London‘s urban areas are changing and they transform adjacent landscapes in an ongoing process. In many cases, the interrelationship between build form and Open Land has yet to be defined. This poses interesting social, spatial and environmental questions. As an example within the area of interest, the 2012 Olympic designs address an interdependence of urban space and Open Land. Here, intensive urban developments embrace the Olympic Park. In our work, we asked questions beyond the Olympic event. For the main design project, we investigated how building proposals can be part of a synergetic urban life and relate to particularities of Open Land. This set the tone for interventions in a range of interrelated scales, from urban through to building and detail scales.

The university’s autonomy -as it was formulated by the founding fathers of the modern civic university- is inextricably linked to the idea of the public sphere. In turn the public sphere is a precondition for the Kantian emancipated / enlightened subject - a subject that has the ability to think for itself -to scrutinize as independently as possible different points of view. Our modern concept of public space or public sphere as principles mark the highpoint of this development - coinciding with the development of a metropolitan lifestyle, ‘the public’ versus ‘the private’, critique, literature (new forms such as the novel), literary saloons and cafes, the press and other public fora. This interdependent relationship establishes the university as a public institution: interwoven and engaged in the process of social and individual emancipation. As an institution the university bears practical, social, ethical, and political responsibility for society. The unit investigated educational building programmes as constitutional ideals for the civic city as well as a concrete activator for a post industrial urban context. In a number of research project the unit traced the history of universities, from differing ideas of universities to competing forms and conditions. We will look at concrete examples from the earliest to the most recent. In particular we will investigate its relation to the city.

The school will be located in Sugar House Lane in the fragmented area of the Lower Lea Valley. The Lea Valley is a fragmented piece of London that has been cut off into pieces by rail, road and water infrastructure. Sugar House Lane with its old works, warehouses and yards is one the rare survivors of the industrial past in the Lower Lea Valley. The Valley was full of enterprises along the river corridor, which supported London’s economic growth from the eighteenth century onwards. This is a unique place that still survives and no other place like this can be found within the borough of Newham.

The project aims is to bring together vocational students studying carpentry and academic research students in a building which offers space for education and provides for better social cohesion between the two different student groups.

As tuition fees start to rise and universities undergo marketisation, the boundary between vocational and academic teaching will soon become blurred as universities will slowly turn into a consumer and supplier relationship. Students will be trained and educated with the main aim of employability, very similar to how a vocational education is delivered.

The form of the building plays with the connotation of a pitched roof and the vernacular architecture of the site and gives it a modern twist. The ‘light chimneys’ made of brick sits well within the designated conservation area.

Currently there is a conservation area marked out mostly to the north of the site, with buildings, yards and chimneys of note located within this zone.

The footprint of the proposed School of Carpentry blends into the existing grain by re-creating narrow passages and yards that exist in the post industrial site. This creates a special sequence of spaces that play a very important part to the character of Sugar House Lane.

Sugar House Lane is located south of the Olympic Stadium and the south half of the site is occupied by the Three Mills Films Studio. Remaining buildings on the site are still in use by the creative and industrial industry, however many of these buildings are in poor conditions due to neglect.

The light chimneys bring light into the workshops and use stack ventilation to cool the spaces down. Each chimney has a direct relationship to the programme underneath. Hot air within the chimney is drawn out by the openable skylight, which also creates a slight vacuum which draws lower cooler air into the space. During winter the WKLFN PDVRQU\ ZDOOV DQG Á RRUV absorb the suns heat and aids in heating the building.

The form of the ‘light chimneys’ have been carved to avoid overshadowing by stepping and sloping the roofs away from existing openings around the surrounding context.

STRATFORD

Squares are interlocked to create a sequence of connected spaces, that can be used for showcasing work, holding events and places for relaxing and socialising for students, creative professionals and the public.

Neglected yards are stitched together and transformed into squares and public spaces that can be used by the small community of educational and creative industry on Sugar House Lane.

By re-opening Hunts Lane and creating a sequence of interlocking squares it will reactivate the neglected yards and improve connection between Hunts Lane and Sugar House Lane.

A live project requires students to constantly move from their studios to the construction site and back again. Therefore in its core the live project is a series of activities that are fragmented and also displaced in space.

The Education Centre for Architecture and the Built Environment in Fish Island explores an educational programme in its dual character DV FRQWDLQLQJ ERWK JHQHUDO SXEOLF DQG VXEMHFW VSHFLÀF IXQFWLRQV $V such the project acts as a bridge between the mixed-use conservation area to the north of the Greenway and the light industrial land to the south. In this way education establishments move away from the idea of isolated and contained campuses and back into their original integrated presence in the city. In a more immediate context the programme aims to respond to the Olympic Games regeneration process. The impact of the Games in London is divided into three phases: 1. Construction of the venues 2. The Games 3. The Legacy. Phase 1 is the most intensive process, which creates the biggest urban impact – businesses and communities are relocated to free land for the new Olympic Park, new satellite industries arrive to support the construction, but they too will leave once the venues are completed. The project suggests using a school focused on architecture and the built environment as a way to retain these new industries (concrete mixing, steelworks, timber yards) and integrate them in the longer regeneration process, while also allowing for the experience gained during the large scale construction of the Olympic venues to be utilized in training students and workers. The linear organization of the programme is inspired by its nature. The school is focused on Live Projects education. Live Projects happen in different places in the city with a common hub (the studio) and can be seen as fragmented activities, displaced along the city lines. This abstract idea is manifested in the use of a clear structural and functional strategy where linear solid load-bearing volumes (containing services) act as main lines and light framed spaces (holding activities) are displaced along them . The changing role of education is provided IRU ZLWK WKH à H[LELOLW\ DQG PRGXODULW\ RI VWUXFWXUH ZKHUH WKH IUDPHG spaces can be changed or taken away completely if necessary. 7KH FRQWUDVW EHWZHHQ VWULFWO\ FRQÀQHG DQG GRXEOH KHLJKW IUHH VSDFHV creates an interesting tension in the interior along with clear thresholds that help students juxtapose the effect of using different materials and construction techniques. The linearity also addresses the strong presence of the Greenway and allows the school to form active fronts to both the important public path and also to the less recongized but equally important crossing of routes from the overpass over A12 and the underpass near Victoria Park on the opposite side of the plot.

Each component responds to its ‘edges’ differently by the way in which they sit on the ground or the way they stand in relation to the street, creating a building conceived as one single entity whose envelope wraps around the steetscape yet which holds various sub-components and sections.

The concept for the building evolved from the subdivision of different ‘educational blocks’ forming the 4 different components of the campus each adapting and reacting to one anotehr as well as to the surrounding context.

The routes begin to merge and mould into the different programmes creating inbetween spaces, the /activity yards’ mimicking the existing yard pattern of the industrial foot print of the area and maintaining its characteristic.

Designed for the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) the project encompasses a research facility for the investigation of different urban growing techniques. The ambition of the project was to respond to the civic city by using the typology of the “building as city� to organise the programme as part of the city edge. The initial nature of the programme poses the question “how can growing space be organised within built programme?� Investigating how buildings can accomodate both solid and void spaces lead the development of the project through the analysis of courtyard systems, which also play an important role in the existing site fabric of Fish Island.

7KH )$2 LV D QHXWUDO IRUXP DIĂ€ OLDWHG ZLWK WKH 81 :RUOG )RRG Programme, focused on improving food security, agriculture production, and levels of nutrition. The organisation is present in over 130 countries, with headquarters based in Rome, and acts as a source of knowledge and information publishing numerous research papers each year and organising conferences and summits. Working primarily in developing countries, the FAO also runs schemes in developed countries such as the food crisis iniative. In recent years the FAO has received considerable criticism for being overly bureaucratic, too conservative and slow to adapt, and non transparent. In the current economic and political climate how food is produced, where it is produced and how we use valuable urban space is a critical issue. How do the technological advances in science impact the world of food research? What role can the FAO play in all of this?

Investigating the building as city in a post industrial landscape.

Architectural Strategy 1. Programme block located towards the North end of the site, freeing up Southern ground for growing. 2. In order to unify the individual blocks, walkways are inserted into the plan. This move also emphasises an East to West connectivity, which is currently lacking on the site. 3. Increasing the growing space by taking advantage of the stepped building heights and South facing facades through the insertion of active facade greenhouses. 4. Activating the roofscape by including roof access of some buildings as use for growing and for the location of plant room/services for the laboratory buildings. 5. Greenhouses run East to West ensuring that the longer envelope faces South. 6. Reacting with the edge. The cafe and seating areas are located on the road side to create a relationship with the street. At this stage peripheral courtyards and courtyards within the building similar to the exisiting logic of the site, start to become apparent. 7. A linear landscape of allotments, seating areas and public concourse unify the overall layout and empahsise the linearity of the building.

The brief for the building allows the design to accommodate traditional growing needs as well as producing more unconventional spaces for growing. Although some of these spaces are not ideal, this is similar to the landscape that food research projects could encounter in the city. So by creating a variety of different spaces, the building embraces the diversity of the project and that of the city. Below are 4 different research and growing techiniques ideal for urban food production; aquaponics, alloments, aeroponics and hydroponics.

building as city

93

The initial concept for the building was working with the idea of “building as city� and looking at how courtyards and allotments can be used to organise growing space within built programme. The linearity of the design developed through consideration of the sun path, and what would be the best organisation in plan in order to get sunlight as deep into the plan as possible. The linearity also allows for east to west connectivity, an aspect which was lacking in Fish Island.

Once entering the building the circulation is dictated by the design process of the scenic construction and costume design. The process begins with the research library where the theatrical curtain is initially formed and evolves. Forming an inhabited space the curtain expands to act as circulation above the main theatre.

The vertical pattern of the facade mimicks that of a real curtain where the regularity of the lines depicts whether the elements it is concealing are public or private. The smaller the interval between the vertical lines the more private the object of concealment. For example the changing rooms have very small intervals between the lines, whereas the library has larger spaces inbetween.

These also allow for PRUH GLI¿FXOW JRRGV WR EH WUDQVSRUWHG more safely than by road or rail.

Demolishing for the sake of building again is a pointless waste. It attempts to re-write the histories of our cities; redraw their topologies to make them kinder, friendlier, sterile. It is the architectural equivalent of burning books. This does not necessitate refurbishment on a large scale, however. If we all approached our existing, derelict, crumbling envelopes, scattered around the city like old crisp packets, as the new ground conditions, part of the geography, waiting to be torn inside, we would have an abundance of space and opportunity. This was necessary for this project, (a campus of applied research) in order to maintain academic integrity, but it could be applied in many ways, and it’s fun.

To mediate the deep plots, the project creates a spatial complexity that is derived from the monastic and cloistered buildings of Italy. The rhythm created by structure, sub-structure and light, is re-created through the building to create an engaging spatial sequence.

By utilising the intellectual assets that RIBA currently have stored in a Fulham lock-up, the project creates accessible archive towers that root into the post-industrial yards of Sugar House Lane. These are linked by events programmes such as studios, lectures and exhibition that reactivate the inactive street front that is typical of post-industrial areas.

The images show the use of these devices in creating a sequence and sense of rhythm through the building. The diagrams show the use of thresholds in the sequence to differentiate spaces and give a sense of transition.

RIBA east studios are aimed at start-up architectural practices and young noncommercial practices. To ensure that studios are kept at an affordable level, the rent will be subsidised by RIBA to maintain affordability. As a charity the RIBA is perfectly placed to offer this, in the same model as the Bow arts council who own the Sugar House building which is leased at affordable, subsidised rates. With RIBA east studios and the adjacent buildings offering affordable studios, the region will continue to offer affordable studios giving a stability to the creativity community.

Once and for all, the atmosphere of public realm has been under pressure of Neo-Liberalism logic and endless security paranoia. Hence, generosity of public education and urban space are less likely to occur in such climate. Perhaps, it is a last resort to strive for openness in Architecture so as to keep various qualities of space in which different activities by different kinds of people can happen along with each other.

The essence of the project is upon a question regarding Architecture and Urbanisms in recent years, following the Unit 9 agenda, closed/ RSHQ ,W LV ZKHQ DUFKLWHFWV QHHG WR ÀQG D ZD\ WR VXUYLYH DQG WR DVN what architecture/architect is to be in the future. Sustainability may be the right answer to it for now, yet sustainability is after all based on FRVW HIÀFLHQF\ ZKLFK HDVLO\ IDOOV LQWR WKH ORJLF RI SURÀW LQ UHJHQHUDWLRQ Furthermore, what if the economy of the western world booms once again in the near future? Or what if oil and metals become even cheaper? Budget is an ultimate limit for building design and economy does effect on architecture. However, the essence of architecture is not commodity of its value but radical use of space where people live, study and socialise with others. In doing so, architecture should include optimum openness towards the city.

The Institute proposed is to be an educational hub of architecture in Europe for interdisciplinary researches and workshop-based teaching in architectural realm. It provides the optimum uses of ground along with educational events for better interactions not only among membership students, researchers and schools but also between the institute and the public realm.

The internal void is formed by mesh that folds to form chairs and bookcases, with the folds forming lateral rigidity.

The section through the archive tower shows the envelope opening to provide views up into the archive whilst protecting from direct sunlight exposure. The archive towers act environmentally as chimneys to drive a stack ventilation, up the central void. The air intake is from the reservoir of fresh air formed by the envelope.

The programme reflects on three main issues. Firstly the fact that architecture students are not “work-ready” after graduating due to the current risk-free architectural education. Secondly, the rising need for vocations, especially in East London because of all the Olympics regeneration and development projects. Finally the negative regeneration aspects that have caused prices in the borrough of Newham to rise and forced residents to move out.

The project - “linking pedagogies” - proposes a building that will accommodate an alternative academic environment where architecture students and vocational trainees work together for the realisation of projects within the grounds of Sugar House Lane and its regeneration. The use of courtyards or “agoras” functioning as the principal interaction points alongside with the strong physical and visual links within the building, act as means of achieving the proposed programmatic link between the two different educational models.

The area of Sugar House Lane epitomises the state of the east of London in current times. A, once, highly active area is now an urban quarter in waiting with a plethora of neglected warehouses and a strong industrial character. The sense of abandonment and the abundancy of open land, make this particular area ideal for regeneration and the consequent expansion of London towards the East.

With the closure of the docks in the 1970s Sugar House Lane, as most of East London, fell into decay as factories closed and inhabitants moved away. A few remaining light industries, alongside with a pleothora of abandoned warehouses, are the only remaining elements illustrating the area’s active past. This largely forgotten archipelago combines many essential values in an area such as: robust yet adaptable old buildings, big amount of open space and two stretches RI ZDWHU IURQW 7KH DUHD LV DOVR EHQH¿ WHG E\ public transport and the close proximity to the Olympics site and Stratford Village.

building courtyard

- open (building courtyard) - semi-open (intellectual courtyard) - enclosed (within front volume)

Three main courtyard typologies are observed within the proposal:

The linkage of the different pedagogies is emphasised in the courtyards. The size of the courtyards is such as to allow the school activities to be tranferred outside anytime. They are the “agoras” of the proposal where students meet, tutorials and open lectures take place, structures are being built and there’s an intense exchange of knowledge and ideas.

Agoras

Bottom: Detailed Section facing North

The building is treated as a single brick volume out of which two smaller volumes are extracted forming the courtyards.The surrounding courtyard facades’ materiality of concrete panels expresses the importance of them as main interaction areas from where the regeneration of Sugar House Lane will be initiated.

Sitting within a conservation area the proposal aims to respect the industrial heritage while introducing more modern methods of construction in order to provide a variety of construction techniques to inspire the students in their work.

Top: East Elevation Bottom: Ground Floor Plan

In order to create a link between the re-cativised waterfront and Sugar House Lane, the North elevation is stepped back from the adjacent buildings. That way a trajectory is formed allowing pedestrian circulation within the area.

Being of a construction nature the school requires frequent loading and unloading activity, most of which happens inside or around the workshop spaces. Taking into consideration the existing large stretch of waterfront and the inactive nature of it, the proposal aims to re-energise the canal as a means of material transportation. The workshops are located adjacent to the canal side optimising the delivery process via a specialised gantry system. The gantry system penetrates through the workshop spaces and creates an immediate link between the building courtyard and the canal allowing bulky loads to be transferred easily.

Active Waterfront

Opposite page: Top Left: View from the CAD lab to the front volume Top Right: View from the studios to the lecture theatre Bottom: First Floor Plan

The front volume of the proposal accommodates the theoretical elements of the programme. These elements include spaces like classrooms, seminar rooms, reading spaces and generally spaces that require more privacy while in use. In order to achieve the desired overall linkage of pedagogies and maintain each space’s privacy the elements are divided by split levels and glass walls. The spaces are arranged alongside a continuous ramp that spirals upwards and are all overlooking the internal courtyard.

This page: Top: Exploded proposal & Circulation Route Bottom: Enclosed Courtyard (front volume)

The programmatic linkage is also expressed through the numerous visual links within the building. The open plan arrangement allows views from one space to the other enhancing the sense of mutual learning.

University of East London MA Urban Design www.ma-ud.blogspot.com Tutor: Christoph Hadrys c.hadrys@uel.ac.uk Students: Ana Denise Teixeira (former students working directly on Sugar House Lane with interesting work: Zaher El Afiouni, Yemin Yin) Open Land This year, we focused on the theme of Open Land, exploring ways in which urban scale interventions can mediate between urban contexts and diverse landscape conditions. The main sites of interest and student projects were located along Open Land in East London, stretching from the Lea Valley to Barking Creek. To name just a few conditions, the area is subject to some of the most diverse inner urban wildlife, highly deprived neighbourhoods, but also some of the most intensive urban developments in Europe. East London‘s urban areas are changing and they transform adjacent landscapes in an ongoing process. In many cases, the interrelationship between build form and Open Land has yet to be defined. This poses interesting social, spatial and environmental questions. As an example within the area of interest, the 2012 Olympic designs address an interdependence of urban space and Open Land. Here, intensive urban developments embrace the Olympic Park. In our work, we asked questions beyond the Olympic event. For the main urban design project, we investigated how proposals can be part of a synergetic urban life and relate to particularities of Open Land. This set the tone for interventions in a range of interrelated scales, from urban through to building scales. Collaborators: Uwe Schmidt-Hess With thanks to: Christopher Alexander (Architect, Urbanist and Mathematician) David Buck and the MA Landscape Design students Tony Fretton (Architect) Roland Karthaus (Urbanist and Professional Studies at UEL) John Lock (UEL Olympics) Renee Tobe (Subject Director, UEL Architecture) John Worthington (Architect and Urbanist)
