Following the successful Wood Architecture Workshop 2010, which Heterarchy ran alongside DeMontfort University with Travis Perkins as comerical sponsors, the development of a new design concept for a mobile Community Media Hub has been commissioned.
The project has been instigated by community media guru and journalist John Coster, of citizenseye.org, following his coverage of the Wood Architecture Workshop 2010. During the workshop John awarded a prize to one of the students, Grace Mbau, for her concept for the outdoor meditation space, with a view to progressing the concept for the Community Media Hub. Heterarchy will be developing the brief with John, looking at both the design produced by Grace and also alternative proposals.
It’s an exciting project for us, fitting in very well with our growing interest in small scale ‘micro’ architecture. It is to be launched in August 2010, so watch this space.
