Projects include future visions for Peckham

First and second year architecture students at Central Saint Martins exhibited their work in the shopfronts of Broadway Market in June. The bookshelves of Donlon Books and Artwords Bookshop were transformed into sites of architectural speculation, and from 25 - 28 June a landscape of models inhabited the furniture shop at No.16.

Third year students created a broad range of project proposals in response to a shared site in Peckham. Through these future visions for Peckham, the students explored architectures that relate to the social, cultural and political issues that are current and imagined.

In addition, to prepare its graduates for some of the challenges they might face, Central Saint Martins worked with the RIBA to develop a mentoring programmes that allowed students to understand practice from within.

27 architects from 24 practices across London provided opportunities for students to attend site visits, client meetings, and a range of other activities within practice.

Geoffrey Makstutis, course leader said: “At its core, Architecture: Spaces and Objects is concerned with the exploration of architecture as an expanded field; encompassing buildings, as places of inhabitation; spaces, as constructed environments; and, objects, as those physical artefacts that inform and transform our use of space.”
