Bridge workshop

As part of our work for the pedestrian bridge in Charmouth (being designed in collaboration with the engineers from DEC) we conducted a bridge building workshop with children from the local primary school. After a short introduction to bridges and to the existing footbridge, the year 6 children designed and built their own bridges with drinking straws and tape. The designs were very varied and impressive, ranging from the very strong to the amazingly minimal and beautiful.

Glasgow and Edinburgh workshop

Last week was 4 days of workshop in the studio with our team for the "formerly known as the Visual Language" Project, 3 days in Glasgow and 1 day at the Geography department in Edinburgh (thanks to Eric for organising it). Quite an intense series of discussions and huge leaps forward.
It is so exciting and fascinating to follow the discussions between 3 artists, an architect, a geographer, a graphic designer and a project manager, all working in the same direction and building up the project together.
