The Study Retreat aims to house and present the artefact, The Book of Kells, in a sculpted space, rich through a deep understanding of the book. Through a series of haptic mappings of the pages from the Book of Kells, the process aims to explore the layering of space and depth found upon the pages and to then use as a narrative device to influence the architectural form and journey.

The journey upon reaching the pages of the Book of Kells aims to manipulate the ones perception towards an atmosphere closer to the story and history of the book. The journey aims to achieve such a multi-sensory experience through the carefully designed spatial layering of the four staircases which produces formal and informal encounters of viewpoints and standpoints.

Christopher Dyson and Jock McFadyen

T e Field is a winning entry for a competition organised by Urban Splash to transform a derelict piece of land in Manchester’s New Islington area into a stunning temporary artwork. It is inspired by the powerful fl oodlights of the Edinburgh Festival. As well as the ordinary, the project is intended to celebrate the empty space and refl ect its status as space in waiting.

T e Cultural Centre in Zlin, Czech Republic, is part of the regeneration of the only town built in Europe between the two World Wars – severely damaged during the second and by the subsequent 40 years of communism. Together with the university library, the building forms the centre of the town’s cultural revival.

1033 Canada Water Library Film Piers Gough RA

Living Projects was commissioned by CZWG Architects to produce an abstract fi lm capturing the refl ections from the water basin onto the facade of Southwark Council’s new library. Canada Water ‘Super’ Library has an inverted pyramid form, whose perforated anodised aluminium cladding ‘shimmers’ in the sunlight and mimics the ripples of the basin next to which it sits.

T e Jewellery Gallery in the Victoria and Albert Museum evokes the rich lining of a precious jewellery box that displays through a playful juxtaposition of glass, light and colour. T e invaluable jewellery collection housed in this London museum is also a reminder of the Victorian period during which it was built.

1035 Autonomous Insertions Digital print Ellen Ward

In 2011, Ellen Ward’s work undertaken at the Canterbury School of Architecture involved an in-depth analysis of Folkestone, which culminated in an alternative masterplan. Autonomous Insertions is a conceptual piece to demonstrate an adaptive re-use of components and was the inspiration for that work.

Post Olympic Games, this will be used as ordinary housing stock. T e facade is made from pre-cast concrete reliefs; endlessly processing horsemen are randomly arrayed in an abstract grid and ordinary features of London domestic life are interwoven with the craggy relief panels.
