As our cities grow bigger and become more crowded, might we need new shared spaces in which to live, work, meet, eat and interact? How do we design shared spaces that empower the many people who are truly in need of a better everyday life? Explore shared spaces of tomorrow with Central Saint Martins, Anton & Irene and SPACE10.
We’re delighted to host an exhibition of recent work by students of architecture and narrative environments on Central Saint Martins’ Spatial Practices programme. The exhibition focuses on shared spaces and spaces as enablers for social interactions, and explores topics such as cross-generational co-living, rewilding and affordable housing for urban migrants. The exhibiting students include:
— Rihards Dzelme, BA (Hons) Architecture
— Sui Yu Au, BA (Hons) Architecture
— Viola Pititto, BA (Hons) Architecture
— Dong Liu, M Arch Architecture
— Fernanda Castelo Branco, M Arch Architecture
— Laurence Neal, M Arch Architecture
— Tom Atkinson, M Arch Architecture
— Zhan Wang, M Arch Architecture
— Andres Restrepo, MA Narrative Environments
— Beatriz Mickle, MA Narrative Environments
— Xin Zhang, MA Narrative Environments
In the evening, five of the students will present their work and vision. Also in the evening, Anton Repponen and Irene Pereyra—of the New York-based design studio Anton & Irene—will discuss their “playful research” project. Done in collaboration with SPACE10, the project explores what co-living might look like in 2030, and invites audiences to consider what type of co-living would be uniquely suited for them.
The exhibition is open from 12 noon to 4PM. The evening event starts at 6PM. Get your ticket to be on the guestlist for the evening event, but remember to arrive in time to secure your seat. First come, first served. The event is free but limited to 100 participants.
From 18-23 September, SPACE10 is hosting a pop-up in Shoreditch to explore the consequences of urbanisation and the spaces we inhabit. Over the course of six days, during London Design Festival, we will examine the concept of space from different perspectives. Learn more and sign up for the different events here.
