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.

Collaborative workspace

We've recently finished a new collaborative workspace for the digital agency Havas Work Club.

Rough and smooth materials are used to articulate zones for different modes of work; a primary structure of black studwork and raw OSB is clad with continuous whiteboards to create a series of spaces for concentration, teamwork, and presentations. This image shows one of the team workspaces.

Arts in Brixton

The Factory space for arts and enterprise opened this morning at the Photofusion Studio in Brixton Market, running a series of workshops for young people. Its mission is to provide young people in the area with the keys to self-sufficiency through paid employment in art, design, music and media.

We designed a storage and room divider system for display and production using industrial components and upcycled waste materials, which was built with the help of a group of apprentices from 198 Contemporary Arts.

See @FactoryBrixton and @CarverHaggard for updates.

Exhibition in Bath

Our proposal for the RIBA Imagine Bath competition is on show from tonight and this weekend in the colonnades underneath Grand Parade in Bath.

We proposed that Bath could rediscover its radical enlightenment spirit to become the first agriculturally self-sufficient city in the world, with greenhouses on the rooftops of 1960s car parkes and mushroom farms in the basements of Georgian Terraces.

See @CarverHaggard for updates.

Camden mushroom farm

We're working with the urban farming startup Article No.25 to integrate commercial-scale farming into the fabric of the city. The pilot project has gone in for planning, and soon should be producing 750kg of Oyster and Shitake mushrooms every month from a disused basement garage in Camden.

Book Launch

The UK launch of the Visual Event is tonight at X Marks the Bökship in Matt's Gallery.

The book promotes and explores an extended situational practice of graphic design and tests the idea of the 'visual event'. It compiles contributions from different disciplines alongside the work of the System-Design Class at the Academy of Visual Arts in Leipzig, and includes our essay 'Event Spaces: Infrastructure, Interference, and Indeterminacy'.

You can read the essay online here and buy the book online here.
