Hello and welcome! Here is a brief summary of what we've been up to and upcoming projects.
Our immersive space in the British Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale is open! The pavilion (curated by Unscene Architecture) is themed around the privatisation of public space and Studio Polpo have examined the future of the high street as part of this. We have also been featured in the 2021 London Festival of Architecture, with our structure for Tereza Buskova's Hidden Mothers project.
Our outdoor play structures for The Hepworth in Wakefield are currently being made, and we have planning for a small structure as part of Grade II* Listed Perrott's Folly for Re:Future in Birmingham and a small all-timber music studio in Sheffield. Our Heeley Mushroom project has been awrded Arts Council funding and we are underway with mycelium tests ahead of a build in early autumn.
We're also working with contemporary dance company Northern Rascals on exciting proposals for a temporary structure for their Sunny Side production, but also in collaboration with South Yorkshire Housing Association on our own Flytower project.
You can read about some of our other projects in the RIBA Journal's "Practice Profile" which we were recently featured in here.
