Chris was here afew months ago writing his masters dissertation “Manifesto of Making, What does the architect, architecture and society stand to gain from architecture schools adopting a culture of making?”, in-between he snapped some lovely shots of the Friggebodar that he helped design and build.
We wanted to create a functional inside/outside space, this area also connects to the balcony via a door. Even though it’s not entirely finished yet you get the idea.
We just recived some copies of “Hyperobjects, Philosophy and ecology after the end of the world, by Timothy Morton”. This book is features Marijes mapping piece “Wellness over time”, looks like it’s going to be an interesting read.
Our current resident, Nina Horstmann, is giving a series of Wednesday lectures at UID in Umeå, this is the first of three titled Designing in a world of change.
Miguel gets busy with us at the weekend on some fine carpentry for the balcony that goes over the front door, only afew more sun days left before winter…
Thijs gets straight to it with Lisa’s pre painted planks, and sorts out the cladding for the balcony.
Together with Iain Borden we have been involved with the writing of the ideology behind a new architectural skateboard-able space that could be built on the Southbank, in London. Check out the press release here here.
We chose three architects, which the Southbank then commissioned, below are some of the design ideas that came back. Next stage is to take the design further with one of the architects who will work with us and some of the future users of the space to finalise a design to build.
Nina has arrived, another resident supported by Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs. While she is very busy writing her dissertation she also seems to find the time for some other activities, such as making a beautiful log table, digging, and generally carrying heavy stuff from A to B.
