Concorde – occupying a cabinet of curiosities.

The first year interior architecture students have been allocated Concorde2 as part of their design brief. Concorde2 is Brighton’s Multi-award Winning Live Music Venue and Nightclub. It has played host to a continuously diverse cross section of events for many many years. The 600 capacity Concorde2 is a classic Victorian building, originally used as tea rooms in the 1800’s. In the 1960’s it became a notorious bikers cafe and in the 1970’s an amusement arcade, before it was eventually transformed into all it’s current glory in 2000.To kick start the morning session Joshua Curtis and Harry/Long Hei Cheung were the first two students to present their ideas. They were both enthusiastic about their projects and showed a great start to their portfolios. The dual programme brief has allowed them to explore a collaboration of craft and performance and propose a way in which they can begin to work together.
It has been a great day of feedback and presentations, with engagement from peers as well as a lot of exciting ideas and conversation throughout the day.
