Kingston School of Art, 2019

Curated by Annas Mojadiddi

While not all re-use proposals, strictly speaking, the three projects we present here are all concerned with building on the rich cultural and material infrastructure the students have identified within their sites. Through the re-playing of local building types, the surgical adaptation of existing buildings or the deployment of bold structural engineering to shelter fragile city life, the three approaches presented here demonstrate a pursuit of architecture as preservation through transformation.
