Hello and welcome to our brief summary of what we've been up to and upcoming projects.
We've recently got planning permission for a demountable structure to house an aquaponics demonstrator starting on site early 2020. The project for the University of Sheffield and working with WeGrowSocial, uses connected systems of fish and soil-free plant growing to address issues of urban food supply. In a similar vein, we've inititated a project at Abbeydale Picture House to design a modular street furniture unit that uses algal bioreactors and green walls to explore how these can reduce air-borne pollutants.
We continue our exciting project around play structures with The Hepworth in Wakefield, and as well as a collaboration with artist Tereza Buskova for an Arts Council funded collaboration around and migrant mothers which we hope to launch at this year's London Festival of Architecture.
2020 sees us working with East St Arts and Leeds Community Homes on a Power to Change funded research on artist-led housing, and a carbon-positive theatre project in Sheffield with cycle-powered thespians The Handlebards!
