Our project for a new RCA proposes a spatial model that encourages creative collaboration across academic disciplines.
The project consists of three spatial archetypes: tables, shelves and ladders.
The table defines a clear space but does not have a boundary. It is a place of making and work but also of display and presentation.
Departmental boundaries are blurred through a system of large overlapping tables containing work spaces.
A spine accommodates shared resources in a shelf structure.
Studios are filled with northern natural light and are reminiscent of industrial spaces often adapted for artistic production.
