Room, City, Building III | Gastprof. Andy Groarke
The unit will be based around a cultural and local administration building for Greenwich, London.
The project will be set against the riverside context of Sir Christopher Wren‘s Old Royal Naval College, a World Heritage Site, described by (UNESCO) as being of „outstanding universal value“ and reckoned to be the „finest and most dramatically sited architectural and landscape ensemble in the British Isles“.
Resisting the tendency for Maritime Greenwich to be entirely consumed by a transient tourist economy, the project will test how the local community from the Royal Borough of Greenwich can be re-connected into the civic and political life of the town, with a new public building.
The project will be developed focusing on physical models as a methodology to test architectural ideas at a series of scales.
The students will visit London from 9th to 13th November 2016 for a series of seminars, building tours and to make a detailed contextual study of the site.
