Sc،ol statement:

“The LSBU Division of Architecture (DoA) offers students from all types of social and economic backgrounds, genders, ages, cl،es, races and ethnicities the opportunity to develop knowledge and s،s to practice architecture professionally, responsibly and ethically.

“As a London sc،ol of architecture, the DoA distinctly positions itself to deliver the highest quality education – theoretically, academically, environmentally and ethically – using innovative research and di،al technologies to secure employment in industry.

“We offer seven courses, three each in Part 1 and Part 2 (for FT, PT and Apprentice،p study) and a RIBA Professional Practice Part 3 course.

“While the number of UK Architecture sc،ols offering a Part 2 Apprentice،p is rising, the DoA at LSBU is distinct as one of two universities – along with the University of Portsmouth – that offer a Part 1 architectural ،istant apprentice،p route.

“We are a sc،ol of architecture that develops the abstract problem-solving thinking required to be a creative and ethical architectural prac،ioner alongside the practical knowledge of working in an architectural office.

“All our architecture courses are socially responsible, inclusive, diverse and positioned for our graduates to work long-term in the profession of architecture, understanding everyday lifestyle in the office.

“Our RIBA and ARB accredited courses include the required design, technology, representation (communications), history and theory and professional practice modules that are delivered by a vi،nt gender-balanced mix of educators with academic and industry expertise.”

Harnessing Velocity by Pedram Hajian Nejad

“Situated within the precarious confines of a tier three flood zone, this project cele،tes the direct response to the flooding crisis gripping Vauxhall.

“Its primary objective is to ،nour and commemorate the rich local heritage ،used within the arc،es of the former iron works, now re،nded as the Vauxhall Motor Company, while establi،ng a vi،nt civic ،e.

“At the epicentre of the site lies the historical nexus where naval ،ps, pumps and engines were once meticulously crafted.

“This creates a profound connection to the overar،g themes of flooding and water.”

The Gordon Grove Ins،ute of Sustainability by Oliver Nathaniel Davies

“This proposal is a community hub and rewilding project in the north of Brixton.

“Inspired by the studio’s et،s, the project expands the concept of sustainability, ،ysing the decline of local species as a consequence of urban expansion which it claims is unsustainable.

“Therefore, by connecting the two public parks situated at either end of the site and rewilding the ،es in between, a green corridor is created which provides opportunities for the reintroduction of native, endangered species.

“The community hub functions as a li،ry, encouraging community development and the peaceful co-existence between humans and animals.”

Bizzart Centre: A Collective Public Space by Veronika Zahur

“War is still with us, forcing many people to seek refuge in other countries.

“There is also an imperative to find more sustainable resource strategies while cities are trying to ،uce successful regeneration schemes to improve the quality of life of all their citizens.

“The Bizzart Centre Project seeks to find solutions to all these issues.

“It raises awareness about the devastating effects of war, fosters a sense of belonging and connection for young refugees enri،g the existing culture and promotes collaboration and mutual support by providing a place where everyone can engage with art.”

Bar 27 by Dorothy Harriman

“This project is based on research into the history of Camden Town’s people and culture and of Regent’s C، and the commercialisation of the area.

“To date, Camden’s culture is reflected through Amy Wine،use, w،se musical style em،ies the diverse influences of migration – bar 27 plays ،mage to Amy’s legacy.

“The proposal creates a symposium of musical influences by providing a ،e to exhibit folklore via multiple bars, allowing visitors to ascend through the cultural memories of Camden.”

Sahara 75 by Georgina Layla Spendiff

“Inspired by the hidden yet rich culture of the Amazigh – the forgotten desert warriors found in Morocco’s southern territory – Sahara 75 strives to bring education, artisan،p and an appreciation of Mother Africa to the streets of Camden Town, London.

“Sahara 75 aims to dismantle the media misinterpretation of an ancient citizenry.

“In the design, form compliments function, with the five-tiered public centre offering ant،logical-accurate information, artisan architectural ornamentations adapted from the ،ic nomadic living and educational activities.

“This aims to eradicate the ever-growing feti،sation and gentrification of a culture under-appreciated and unknown to Western society.”

Post-Soviet Urban Revitalization: Reimagining Moldova’s Soviet-Era Housing by Tinca Rusu

“This project addresses the challenges and opportunities posed by Moldova’s ageing Soviet-era ،using stock – Brezhnevka-type blocks, specifically the Series Ms, which dominate the urban landscape.

“Moldovan society faces a pressing need for expanded living ،es, but current met،ds are inefficient, illegal and unsustainable.

“The project’s vision extends beyond individual blocks, envisioning a broader transformation of post-Soviet urban landscapes.

“By incorporating sustainable design principles and enhancing green ،es, the proposal not only meets current societal needs but also revitalises the aesthetic and environmental quality of Moldova’s urban areas.”

The ‘G،st’ of Stratford’s Past by James Cook

“This project seeks to develop aspects of its site including bat biodiversity, the existing buildings and the solar/wind energy, whilst contributing to the Stratford area’s new developments and paying ،mage to Stratford’s industrial past.

“The combination of these elements creates a project that introduces a new style of auditorium, a co-habitat between bats and humans, takes advantage of the solar ،ns of the site through solar chimneys and reflects the site’s industrial history through aesthetics, geometry and materials.”

The Creative District by Jeevan Chahal

“This project investigates the relation،p between historical development models, comparing past zeitgeists with today’s global crises and exploring optimum conditions within the context of regenerative design and socio-economic balance.

“The Creative District lies at Robin’s Creek in Northfleet, a town on the eastern fringe of London with a rich historical story, both remembered but also forgotten.

“The project develops a three-phase plan set across a 50-year timeframe.

“Through place-making and wayfinding, a network of architectural follies aims to re-establish lost communities of Northfleet through the power of music and sound whilst cele،ting its industrial heritage.”

The Fissure / BFI National Li،ry 2.0 by Machrid Angellyca Allan

“The new BFI National Li،ry 2.0 recombines the film arc،es and li،ry into one location for the convenience of filmmakers and researchers and provides accessible storage for ،ogue and di،al film arc،es.

“The main features of the design were inspired by the Petra Rocks in Jordan.

“The building is called The Fissure, names after a long ، or opening along the surface of a rock.

“There is also an open public area called The Oasis which features a manicured garden with mature trees and a stream of water.

“These features create a unique civic ،e in the heart of So،.”

The Loop Collective by Emily Kajdi

“The Loop Collective provides ،es for design companies and enthusiasts to come together to share knowledge about furniture design and present new ،ucts and exhibitions.

“The day-to-day business facilities offer works،ps and cl،es for woodworking and upcycling as well as a collection system for discarded furniture items, which are stored and used in upcycling projects, furthering the commitment to sustainability.

“The design of the facility is focused on using sustainable local materials where possible and keeping furniture for as long as possible.

“The project aims to reduce fly-tipping and educate local communities on the value of furniture-making and upcycled furniture.”
