Jimmy Cauty’s Model Village Experience: The Aftermath Dislocation Principle

Bored of dystopian interzones?

Seen the destruction and mayhem?

Get ready for the utopian rebuild!

NEW BEDFORD RISING

New Bedford Rising connected to the main section, via a suspension bridge, will be a massive construction site in the shape of the Tower of Babel. A spiral city where an immense solid gold pyramid is being built to usher in a new edenic era that the constabulary believe is imminent. New Bedford is rising from the wreckage; a paradise where policemen can roam free, living idyllic lives and raising their young in a crime free epoch of law and order, peace, and eternal bliss. Sponsored by Greggs and the Panacea Society.

Cambridge 2015

The University of Cambridge Summer Show 2015

 

The University of Cambridge had their architecture exhibition in the Truman Brewery for a couple of days this week. The show was very spacious and well laid out, with plenty of room to move between the work and the various elements. The work was well balanced with plenty of hand drawings, models and exploration elements. It was the first time I’ve visited the show put on by Arcsoc, and it is run and organised entirely by the students, and they did an excellent job. I will be sure to visit again next summer.

Serpentine Pavilion 2015

The Serpentine Pavilion 2015

The 2015 Serpentine Pavilion by José Selgas and Lucía Cano (selgascano), is a playful and colourful event which I was expecting to hate. I wasn’t overly impressed by the images online of the pavilion, but when I experienced it firsthand I actually quite enjoyed it. I liked the tight little pathways guiding you through, surrounded by bright colours and translucent materials. The pavilion was fairly busy, with many children running around having a great time.

The AA Exhibition 2015

The AA Summer Show 2015

 

This morning I took a look around the AA 2015 Exhibition. Lots of fantastic work. Not as much 3D printed work as I was expecting, but that was probably for the best. I particularly liked the section studying double curved surfaces, which was fascinating stuff. There seemed to be more technical work, such as detailed sections, which I’m sure I didn’t see quite so many of last year, which was all very impressive. There was so much work on display that I struggled to take decent photographs as I couldn’t get the distance, which is always a positive sign.

Bartlett 2015

The Bartlett Summer Show 2015

 

Unfortunately part of the exhibition was closed when I arrived due to “an accident”, so I didn’t get to see one or two of the units work. The work I did see however, was as amazing as ever. The change of venue over previous years was a welcome change, as the work on display had a little more room to breathe. I believe it also helped that I visited on a Monday morning when the show was very quiet, but the whole exhibition seemed to have much more space than last year, which helps when trying to take in all the work.

 

ScanLab Projects have produced a great video showing the transformation of the space and the show itself:

CASS 2015

The CASS Exhibition 2015

 

I took a quick look around the CASS yesterday afternoon. The work on show was substantial and of a very high quality. The amount of hours of work that had been put into the year by the students was obvious. It was actually the first time that I had visited their end of year show, but after seeing the amazing work on display I will be sure to return.

LSBU Exhibition 2015

The LSBU Architecture Exhibition 2015

Earlier this week was the opening night of our Architecture Exhibition. Our studio decided to go all out and construct a Market House to stand above our work, with a strong market theme running throughout. After a few hard days working in the workshop we managed to complete the structure, and spent a good few hours laying out all the work and making the final adjustments.

It was a great way to end my time at LSBU, and the work on show was outstanding. I have a small selection of images below from opening night.
