YEAR 2: This year we set out to explore what role a designer plays in addressing racial, spatial and climate injustice; how can architectural design be a medium between communities and the local authorities and communicate inequity in Peckham? The Covid-19 pandemic highlighted the power of community action and collective response has become vital for communities worldwide, whether they are affected by racial injustice, health and housing inequality and/or the climate change crisis. Our initial research included community engagement and ethnographic practices to explore Peckham. The information was then translated into a series of Mapping drawings which documented the findings of the effects of coronavirus and environmental injustice. The Mapping output and visual documentation were presented to the local authority’s Regeneration Team, and led to early design proposals, challenging the students to design a place to facilitate community engagement. Students have been encouraged to learn through case study projects from around the world, such as the Baris Village by Egyptian modernist architect Hassan Fathy and consider architectural responses to the extreme environments and social inequity. These interactive methods and the findings have informed the final design proposals: A Civic Space/ Community Dwelling, on an urban site in Peckham using architectural landscaping and spatial formalisation, which responded to the environmental, ecological and social aspects of the context.Read More...
