Landscape and Material Culture 


The project seeks to bring together expertise from across the university to develop a new rural satellite workshop for the Department of Architecture’s new Design Tripos programme that allows students and researchers the opportunity to learn through making at 1:1 as part of a new holistic architectural education that tests building from natural materials that can grow in the surrounding landscape.

The fieldwork will consist of interviews and collaborations with local farmers, university staff and fabricators to establish local supply chains and social networks that can help to realise the ambition of the project. The thesis seeks to answer how might we envisage an alternative landscape for greenbelt land that is not urban, sub-urban or rural and instead hybridises recreational, agrarian and ecological land uses? It will also question, whether, to meet the government’s 2030 carbon capture and green building targets, can and should buildings be made from only locally sourced materials?
