Fragments: Future Cities This year our approach explored thinking and making derived from fragments – knowledge, perception, history and imagination – to create layered concepts for architectural proposals in relation to the theme, Future Cities.? Fragment sites and redundant buildings are where small architectural innovations and new directions materialise. Somers Town, a residential area in London, sandwiched between its heavyweight neighbours Euston, Kings Cross St Pancras and the Knowledge Quarter is the focus for Camden’s New Neighbourhoods initiatives and our site for student propositions. Considering local plans, initiatives and ambitious sustainability goals, we invited students to imagine activities and environments that would support local residents. Brief 1 Fragment - Working in pairs, the students constructed 1:1 fragments from redundant materials and photographed them on site in order to generate ideas for a socially focused programme, and to develop concepts for an architectural proposition. Brief 2 Building for Sustainable Practises - This architectural proposal should act as a demonstration building that reduces the level of embodied carbon in construction. The building is to provide a venue for discussion and dissemination of the ideas it embodies within the borough – and further afield.
