Manufacturing Landscape

Our students in Studio 8 will present their work for the year so far at the Cass today. This year we are looking at industrial sites in the wetland landscape of Chichester Harbour and the design of "Model Factories" like the Menier Chocolate Factory in Noisiel outside Paris, which we visited together on the Field Trip last year.

Green Belt

The Cass show opens tonight and runs until the 2nd of July. Our students in Studio 8 are showing their research and proposals for the Green Belt on the second floor.

William Morris imagined a future England as a productive garden of decentralised light industry, where beautiful factories would act as centres of education and harmonious gathering. Could London’s Green Belt within the M25 become a new productive landscape?

Market Stalls

We've been shortlisted to develop a concept for a new market stall to help traders in Chrisp Street Market in Poplar, as part of the RIBA Middle of the Market competition. The project is part of the Chrisp Street Exchange program and is supported by funding from the Mayor of London’s High Street Fund.

Brixton Design Trail

The new HustleBucks shop has opened for business in Brixton Village as part of the Brixton Design Trail. It's a social enterprise run by and for local young people, combining a fashion brand and a printing facility. We worked with the staff and apprentices to help them design and make the new fit-out; a yellow frame which holds pegboard panels, and mobile furniture elements which can be easily transformed and dressed for events. Come and visit if you're in the area!

South Downs conference

Our students from Studio 8 at the Cass presented yesterday at the annual South Downs National Park Authority Research Conference in Midhurst. Their work on the rural economy and industry in the Sussex Downs was shown alongside research from a wide range of other disciplines.

"It’s really inspiring to see geologists, ecologists, architects and historians all sharing their ideas, and such a wide range of high quality work being carried out which will support the future of the South Downs."
Tanya Rowan, South Downs National Park Authority

Two houses

We have submitted a planning application for two new houses in Chelsea, on a street behind Chelsea Embankment between the Physic Garden and the Royal Hospital. The elevations are detailed in patterned and textured brickwork, drawing on our research into the work of E.W.Godwin and the houses built nearby for the artistic community in the late 19th Century.
