Studio BA 01

Studio 01 addresses themes of scale, place and the public realm in both urban and rural contexts, exploring the planning and making of the built environment in contexts with already distinctive architectural characters. The studio emphasises the close study of existing conditions as a way of initiating spatial investigations in relation to specific places, which are then pursued through the speculative manipulation of spatial qualities in drawings and models. These investigations inform the design and placement of new public buildings in often sensitive locations.
