(“from this place, we gain enlightenment and precious knowledge” - Cambridge’s motto)

This year S2 explored architecture through the lens of research buildings in Cambridge. Our interest was driven by the mirror like spatial relationships these interiors have to landscape. We examined examples like the Anchorite cells dating from around the university’s founding in 1209, to Newton’s garden, to the HQ garages of the early 2000s to today’s science parks. The imagined projects attempt to relate on their own terms to the diffused spatial qualities of 21st century peripheral Cambridge. The projects were explored through an architectural perspective in term 1, an urban perspective in term 2 and an experiential perspective in term 3.
