Third year focused on the relationship between mental health, design and wellbeing. Drawing on conditions of isolation, our increased employment of digital tools, and inspired by the surrealists, term I began with a game of exquisite corpse: students paired up and co-created Exquisite Interiors, as composites of the space revealed in communication platforms, and that which needs to be imagined. With the guidance of practitioners, clinicians, experts and patient advocates as part of the Co-Production Workshop held with medical students from Imperial College, our group considered how design affects health and, how (pre)conditions of the mind inform the ways we perceive and design space. They pursued these ideas by designing Treat Trolleys for existing hospital sites, aimed to offer moments of comfort, pleasure and care. Term I concluded with innovative and transformative spatial propositions for the Marylebone Re-Treat(s), situated in our studio in 35 Marylebone Road, imagined to be requisitioned by the government for a post-covid centre. The Thesis Project is the main pursuit for Year 3 students. Each student identifies a host building and devises a programme based on analysis and personal design interests. Ideas are explored through an array of techniques including material experimentation, 3D scanning, and animation. The diversity of schemes and depth of speculation is indicated by the exhibited project descriptions and locations.Read More...
