Stage 5, MArch


This year I researched the architectural expression of a value system of ‘Solidarity’. This system was explored within quintessential British social establishments: The pub & the butcher. The culminating intervention was a ‘New Smithfield’ that would allow the meat traders of Smithfield to be able to continue their social, cultural & economic contributions to the historic site within a low operational energy and ecologically supportive scheme. Additional programme enhanced the traders’ abilities to share their skills.
