Artsdepot - Schools & Architecture Design Project
Sustainable Futures - Schools Design Project
The Ove Arup Foundation has recently announced support for a second Artsdepot project, based in Barnet, North London.
Building on the success of our schools and architecture design project Autumn 2018, we propose a further project working with three schools this Autumn resulting in an interactive exhibition in December 2019.
The project will place architects and artists in schools exploring the environmental impact of the design & construction process. Pupils from a primary, secondary, and special educational needs school will consider the sustainability of different approaches of sourcing materials looking at journey to site, origins of source materials, life cycle of materials, manufacturing procedures and carbon impact during & post construction.
Pupils will design and build wellbeing modules using Studio Bark’s modular U-Build system (and other materials) to feature in the exhibition. The modules will return to the schools after the project.
