THE JEWELLERS ARCADE

 

Beginning with a study into the occupation of land by travellers in the green belt around London, this project brings the act of “land grab” into the heart of the city. In a response to the threat of eviction, the jewellers of the Burlington Arcade extend and augment both their shops and the Arcade itself until it can support and sustain its shopkeepers. e roofscape above is transformed into accommodation, forges and jeweller’s workshops. In addition, the airspace above the passageway running beside the Royal Academy becomes the arcade’s back-of-house, housing the plant for the recycling of precious metals from London’s discarded electronic waste.

Commuting for Non-commuters

You begin walking to the local bus stop, but are confused to find opposite a second bus
stop, it looks similar to the existing jubilee bus stop, what you donʼt know is there is
something magically different. You see a simple bench, on the back wall of the shelter a
rectangular bus map is displayed. Wait. You step closer. This isnʼt a bus route for the
local village, but a mapping of another journey. Walking behind the bench to take a
closure look at the map, you find yourself sitting down facing inwards. A curtain shuts
behind and you are enclosed in darkness. A light pings on, and the bus route map begins
to slowly rise up and reveal a small window. Behind lies a alternative world- your very
own commuting experience.

the dragon kiln

ed grainge, lemma redda + sophie cole

The dragon kiln is conceived as a hearth and place for a small group of people
to gather. It stems from an initial investigation of the culture and
livelihood of traveler communities in Britain. The kiln is situated
at the edge of the farm's main field at distance from the farm house, creating
a new place within the site with a new relationship to openness of the
rolling landscape beyond. It is constructed as a series of thin parabolic arches
cast with concrete into a form which is an excavation of clay laden earth. The
cast elements were extracted and turned upright with the excavated void becoming
the flue for drawing a fire at the wide end.

way-maker

Ithomi Zafiropoulos, Jessica Klein + Wayne Mannings

The installation takes on the concept of a "Way-maker", a directional tool that is
intended to represent and articulate an accumulation of events and stories of the
surrounding landscape of Grymsdyke Farm and Lacy Green. The instrument, installed
on an upper floor window of the farm house, is derived from a selection of viewing
points that give a focus to not obvious historical or cultural events in the
landscape; the "Grim Ditch", "Hangman's Oak" etc. The focal points are expressed
as elaborately milled timber blocks as a hybrid form of directional points to be
viewed through from the window and experienced as an object.

Grymsdyke Farm Installations

7 Groups of 3-4 students built 1-to-1 installations at Grymsdyke Farm in November
2011. Each installation piece was derived from a different concept of rural life
and culture.

Broad themes for each group project were established:
- migration
- seasons
- boundaries
- livelihood
- boundaries
- craft
- landscape
- tools

Students were invited to develop site specific responses to the themes while
staying at the farm. With support of the farm’s workshop facilities, each group
was encouraged to independently consider the farm site within the context of
Lacey Green. Built installations explored a variety of approaches to the site,
materiality, techniques for fabrication and construction and cost.
