Type: Public Realm Intervention
Commissioned by: Birmingham Architectural Association
Collaborators: Co-Lab + BCU Students
The Love Architecture Festival encourages people to enjoy local architecture through practical and engaging activities that celebrate the many aspects of buildings that we use regularly.
We were tasked to create a mobile piece that would engage with members of the public during the festival. The aim was to get people to observe their surroundings and draw or make a model of their favourite piece of architecture in Birmingham.
Working with BCU and Co:Lab students over three weeks, we went from concept through to fabricating a moveable structure that allowed people to draw or make in-situ. Parts of the structure could be dismounted to create a drawing board and two table-top making areas could be opened at the sides. These areas also featured digital screens to showcase examples and ideas to people participating.
