Brighton staff and students show how its done at Making Lewes

Architecture and design staff Duncan Baker-Brown, Nick Gant and Kate Cheyne took part in this years Making Lewes festival.

The festival was run over two weeks with a mixture of talks, workshops and exhibitions in and around the town that thrives from  its large community of artists and makers. Duncan Baker-Brown and Nick Gant presented their cutting edge work at the Remake:remodel symposium. They set out ideas on A Circular Economy and Innovative Use of Waste Materials including our UoB award winning project – The Waste House. Meanwhile at Lewes House Kate Cheyne chaired an enlightened symposium on Rethinking Housing, including talks from AshSakula, Henley, Halebrown & Rorrison and academic Francis Hollis.

Whilst staff were talking – our students were doing.  Architecture students worked on the Kinship: design & make workshop with Studio Hardie, making a portable timber structure for a local Chile Festival.  At the end of the week kids were found happily clambering over it and dancing under it
