We worked with staff from the Bartlett and recent graduates from the courses to create proposals for the redesign of Battersea Power Station in Vauxhall, London. Our theme was ‘Excess’, and we were looking to see how this can inform architectural redevelopment.
We conducted site analysis, took part in group discussions and design charrettes, and then created models to propose our ideas. The two-week Summer School ended with a Super-crit with architects, staff from the Bartlett, and fellow participants of the Summer School.
Tutored by Matthew Butcher (Unit 12, The Bartlett), Rosy Head (Royal College of Art) and Tomas Klassnik (The Klassnik Corporation). Our project model featured in Bartlett 2010-2011 Course Booklet.
