Stage 5

Located on the creek side of Deptford, this archaeology centre follows a journey that allows the community to learn, view and experience the creek. The brief was to create a space for archaeologist to come in and provide muk larking tours, including teaching and workshop sessions for the public. The exhibition space played a big role within the design process for the buildings. The site initially had a slope coming down to the creek, but through its design process, the land has been excavated even more and used within the process of creating eco-friendly and sustainable rammed earth walls for the building itself. The exhibition space now displays objects found from the creek inside the semi outdoor area with the mud exposed from beneath that connects down to the creek allowing water to flow in. This creating an atmosphere and tangible experience.
