Third year’s Spatial Narratives focused on the relationship of body, mind, and spirit. Drawing on conditions of isolation, the desire to reconnect with nature, and inspired by the history of Quintin Hogg’s Chiswick Sports Grounds as our site of exploration, term I began with in-depth archival research on the site’s history, followed by a collaborative site survey. Through a series of hands-on workshops, students studied the quality of light and the way it affects wellbeing and pursued their design ideas by integrating the surrounding landscape to support physical, spiritual activity, and offer moments of comfort, pleasure, and care. Term I concluded with innovative and transformative spatial propositions for the Polytechnic Retreat, reimagining the existing cricket pavilion as a prototype retreat for students and staff of our university. Following the successful paradigm from last year and, with guidance from 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 and body inform the ways we perceive and redesign interior spaces. 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 and, 3D scanning.Read More...
