Hello and welcome! Here is a brief summary of what we've been up to and upcoming projects.
We're excited to announce that we are involved in the British Pavillion at the 2020 Venice Biennale. Curated by Unscene Architecture, the pavillion is themed around the privatisation of public space, and we've been examining issues around the high street as part of this.
Our Aquaponics Microfarm structure for the University of Sheffield is now out to tender. This 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, as well as a collaboration with artist Tereza Buskova about 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, a carbon-positive theatre project in Sheffield with cycle-powered thespians The Handlebards, and a community structure in Birmingham.
