CONTEXT: Unit 1 / Architecture BSc (ARB/RIBA Part 1) / The Bartlett School of Architecture
Unit 1 is examining an architecture which is able to sense, interpret, adapt and respond to an identified altering or evolving situation, an architecture which is in a constant state of‘Flux’. We are inspired by forms that can mutate, materials that can record, and technologies with embodied behaviours that perform; all tools that alter in state in response to changes within a condition. Our work is heavily contextualised within a certain place and a certain time. The consideration of the physical context at both the macro and the micro scale, as well as the design-life of our proposals has been critical to our thinking. The existing condition, fabrication/construction as well as occupancy and even post-occupancy phases within our work have all been key considerations throughout our design development. Making is a key part to our iterative design process. We nurture a design process where the drawn and speculated are swiftly realised through the making, testing, and prototyping of scaled or 1:1 components of our proposals, to be re-imagined on site as part of the built whole.
