"Through design we can change stories"
An experiential investigation into communities and hidden spatial events.
The ‘Unspoken Revolution’ is formed of a group of students from the Interior Design BA (Hons) at Sir John Cass Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design, part of London Metropolitan University.
We are currently exploring the narrative of the ‘Derelict’, through an investigation that looks into sensory physical spaces and their communities and those who sit on the fringe.
The aim of the year-long studio is to develop a thorough understanding of communities and materiality, in order to design meaningful spatial events.
The Hermitage Project
Through Design we can change Stories’
The Hermitage Project forms part of the ‘Unspoken Revolution’ studio. It encourages students to develop a sense of social responsibility. The project is in collaboration with Whitechapel Mission ‘Always the homeless first’, and BDG architecture + design.
Our design outcomes aim to highlight, focus and punctuate the issues through materiality, action, haptic skills and meaningful imagery, in order to challenge the public perception of homelessness.
The structure will be sited in The New Spitalfields Market on 12th and 13th December.
