Andrew has been back to his old school to give a presentation on being an architect. As part of the workshop, the students were asked to design their dream home on an infill site before swapping drawings with their neighbours to design a school extension (with varying degrees of sensitivity to their host building…). The students were impeccably behaved and produced some confident and original work which they then presented to their classmates. Keep an eye out on our ‘Other Ideas’ page where we will be posting all of the students drawings…

We were delighted to be asked to contribute to the Archifringe 'Frankentypes' exhibition in Edinburgh earlier this month. The exhibition featured drawings and models from a group of emerging practices based on hybrid typologies. Our project, The Villa Savoy, is an ark, based on Aalto’s classic Savoy glassware range and contains a mixed-tenure of housing and civic functions. We're looking forward to seeing where our model ends up next...
