Layers of Learning: Bringing Community to One Plate

According to Kandinsky when two lines cross each other, the point is created at the intersection. Adding lines to that point, makes it grow bigger. Research done by Vegan Society shows that the easiest way for each one of us to be sustainable is to reduce meat intake. By bringing people to one point, which is the building and teaching them about plat-based lifestyle will make a positive impact on surrounding area. In my opinion one of few positive things that can be taken from lockdown period is the fact that people had to slow down their lives and started to appreciate what they have. Taking inspiration from that the process of preparing food, this is broken down into a slow process, where a visitor can follow the journey of ingredients from the garden workshop to the meal on the plate in a restaurant by exploring the stages through senses. One of the topics discussed in my AiC 3 Research Document is the idea of layering explored by Piranesi in Campo Marzio and Bernard Tschumi in Parc de La Villette. By introducing the layers of historical site plans through conceptual grid the connection will be made to the immediate context.

BArch Architecture

The BArch (Hons) in Architecture course is focused on the creative and practical development of architectural design, investigated in a studio environment through a series of carefully considered practical and theoretical projects in a variety of spatial, social, cultural and topographical situations.

The purpose of the course is to align architectural concepts, thinking, techniques and values with current architectural thought and practice. It involves strategic thinking and creative imagination; problem-solving and research tasks; attention to detail and tectonic resolution; traditional and digital forms of representation; and public presentations and reviews. This course addresses the challenges of designing for diverse communities and cultures and develops Part 1 graduates with creative vision, practical skills and an ethical position in respect of the role of the architect in a globalised world.
