External stone render - 1:20 - Antony James Graham This visual demonstrates the significance and importance of the buildings façade that relates to the 'STONE CITY' of Glasgow, a fluent and consistent trend that has been a major influence on the development and research into the projects growth. The vast majority of the building relates to the architectural pallet, materiality and character of the Stone city, Glasgow 'City of Facades' as a reminder to the historical and cultural heritage, identity and importance as we develop buildings in our modern climate.
Alamin Mandhry Not only is the relationship between the street and the building is maintained using barazas (stone bench) for people to meet, relax and sell goods, an internal street with the same barazas is created. The internal street is lined with dakas (outdoor porches) used as shops, restaurants and a space for people to play, socialise and relax. A visual link is created using the balconies on the first floor that over look the street and internal street. The connection between the hub and the dhow yard is enhanced using a "thread" that weaves through the the street providing spaces for activities such as socialising, commerce and playing that already take place on the street.
Urban Balcony 2- a perspective render. - Cham Zheng Chee The intertwining of human activities explores the mutual spillage spaces of the streets and the river, accentuating liminal experiences within the urban space
Promenade - Angelika Hajdasz The Promenade is located on French Street, which currently is used as street parking. It is a pedestrian-only route, from which vehicles has been redirected to Colvend Street. By removing cars from the street, space became a safe and pleasing environment full of nature and small architecture to slow down a little, sit, relax and enjoy the view.
View of the tower from the courtyard - Asya Gumus The tower is located at the heart of Haghill and the curtain wall facade offers the opportunity to empower, encourage and promote activities through signage on the windows. The central space can also be used to sit, meet, socialize and spend time in the day.
Proposed masterplan - Carla Feraru The masterplan follows a village-like typology, where a collection of buildings of various scales and functions are symbiotically employed across the site. After the mining process is completed, the landfill mound is remediated into a woodland whilst the masterplan, already established as a central hub of recovery production and consumption within the community, continues to perform these functions long into the future, sustaining the economic activities of the area.
Self-sufficient Building Operating Cycle - Gertie Leong Hei Li The building is promoting a self-sufficient operating cycle where customers from the Market will be able to contribute and participate in producing agricultural goods in the urban farm, then the outputs are to be sold back into the market. The Urban Farm operates with the 'Manual-Automatic' farming method where people come and purchase farming resources from vending machines, including fertilisers generated from any food waste in the Kitchen and Market hall. Moreover, Creative workshops are created to nurture the local art of making and the residents from Anderston will be able to come and enjoy the experience and share knowledge and ideas in the Co-Working Study Room.
Proposed care model - Asya Gumus This diagram shows the proposed care model establishing the location and different scales of the interventions.

View of Physical Model along Gorbals Street - Shivani Sarjan This view of the phigital model depicts the building from the landscaping, clearly showing the user's ability to 'climb' the building to the spaces above.
"To See" - Series of collages - Zuzanna Woznicka Semester one project "To See". Series of collages capturing the internal or external character of the temporary pavilions. Collages were made in Photoshop over the hand-drawn sketches.
Integrated Sustainablity - Carlson Ko To show sustainability has been taught through the building as how Global Warming is one of the factors that is in every designers mind now. Sustainability goals that are mostly integrated into a building are introduce here allowing the community to understand and learn from the positive effects and ways to contribute the world.
Aerial View of the Physical Model - Shivani Sarjan This view of the Phigital model, shows the landscaping, the arches and how the buildings interact with them. It also shows the access routes to the building and the parking lot.
Working Space - Andrew Devine Image showing a typical quiet working space off of the atrium.
Elements of the Open City - Ami Coulter Moving Toward an Open City through design interventions; Arx, Pnyx and Iter. Creating flexible spaces centred on citizen exchange, accepting and celebrating the city as ever evolving and unfinishable. Theory based design interventions tested in Glasgow with scope for deployment in other cities around the world.
The Structure & Design of the Building - Kirstin Mackenzie
Connectivity of an Open City - Ami Coulter Toward an Open City is an important infrastructure though it does not solve all the problems – as there can be no final solution. Through providing a renewed circular programme of interventions which continuously feed each other, it provides new and varied modes of citizen engagement at different scales, in different locations. Ultimately, building a climate which is more open; accepting of the other, adaptable, respectful and understanding. Inspired by Guy Debord, Psychogeographical guide to Paris 1957. Lazzaroni, 2012.
The Market Seating - Fiona Wylie Interior view of the cafe seating area above the public market stall, highlighting the glulam and CLT construction for a warm, earthy atmosphere.
Ground Floor interior view - Lewis McLynn Interior perspective from Library design.
Section of 1 Study Bay and Balcony - Shivani Sarjan Laurieston Education Hub This Section cuts through one study bay and the mezzanine. It defines the deep embrasure created by the window which the bench fits into. The partition offers privacy without completely enclosing the user; using sheer fabric and spaced wooden elements. The shelf, defines the entrance to the space while providing a number for easy navigation. Finally, the large lighting element also provides a sound buffer.
"To Engage" - Section C-C 1:100 - Zuzanna Woznicka In this section, we can see the difference between the height of the floors and how the light accesses those spaces. In the backyard is located a public graffiti wall, that can be used by anyone who would like to express himself. To introduce the gallery to another social group I proposed a mini ramp at the back. The brick in the back is the recycled wall of the preexisting building, and that was my starting point for this project. I wanted to leave one wall that would be a reminder of the past.
Market hall foyer space - Fatema Hassan This view shows the plaster render staircase that leads to the upper spaces including the food hall, workshops, and cafe. On the left, rentable kiosk spaces for people to advertise and sell products beneath a high ceiling braced in exposed timber construction and bathed in skylight light.
Cultural Studies Research Poster – Parallel Research - Giovanni Miscena
Elevation Of Ndia Kuu street. - Alamin Mandhry Great care is taken when designing the facade of the community centre. The proportions of the buildings and architectural elements, materiality and other Swahili architectural elements like decorative fascia boards played an important role during design. The building is divided into two volumes to ensure seamlessly it fits into the street elevation.
Element of the Master plan - Kate Melhuish Part A looks at the creation of a more celebrated entrance on the north edge of Glasgow Green along with the re-implementation of the train station. Part B Looks at the Redesigning of the Housing Development to give it greater connection with the green. Part C looks at reinventing the Peoples Palace and reinstating it original purpose as a place to store the people memories. Part D Looks at re-connecting the Gorbals with Glasgow green Finally, Part E aim to immerse the user in a story or memory in this case that is the story of the washer woman.

Mind-map Showing the Effects of Celebrating an Areas Identity - Kate Melhuish There is a habit removing or hiding it history and not preserving buildings for use and signifying their importance leaving derelict site and buildings throughout the Clyde area. By removing these areas of importance from their neighbourhood in turn you lose the areas identity and this contributes to a loss of community and connection to the city along with perpetuation the rise in mental health issues. By celebrating a places identity and history, bringing these areas back to life for their communities we can bring people back together and create spaces for communities, increasing their connection to each other and to the city as a whole.

Site Section - Viktoria Georgieva
The Facade - Sania Halim It’s quite evident that most of the countries suffer from great temperature anomalies, especially many parts of Middle Eastern countries and Asia. The facility aims to flow at significantly greater heights where acid deposition levels are the most. This will be anywhere near to 400-1000m. Hence the terraformer will be exposed to harsh climates and direct sunlight. Prototyping of new smart materials for the terraformer will be performed using graphene printed technology, which will consist of clusters of gills interfaced with sensors to enable the device to open and close in response to both human activity and carbon dioxide levels. The graphene mesh will absorb the extra heat and harsh sunlight from the atmosphere as well, hence turning them into electricity to run the facility. The panels will be able to simulate how they will operate in reaction to sun intensity and shifting incidence angles over the year. The panels would act as a curtain wall, extending 1-2m beyond the glass frame. The façade of the terraformer will have star shaped panels inspired from biomorphism, projecting out 2m, and will have implementation of advanced detection system designed to integrate the needs of the regions climate. The panels will be able to simulate how they will operate in reaction to sun intensity and shifting incidence angles over the year. The panels will reduce glare, improve daylight penetration when needed, less reliance on artificial lighting and over 50 percent reduction in solar gain, which results in a reduction of co2 emissions by 1750 tonnes per year.
Mavisbank House / A Descent into Chaos - Eilidh McGuigan The following artworks convey the regression of Mavisbank House. The Palladian villa was the first of its kind to be built in Scotland during the period of enlightenment, where it experienced an entourage of regimes. Originally built in 1727 by architect William Adam in collaboration with his client with intentions of being a stately family home, the building was erected with strict form and order which showed its stance in the local hierarchy. With being a sign of wealth and importance within the area, the building received high levels of care with a flock of maids and groundskeepers to maintain the property. Through time, and many pairs of hands, the building was eventually left in a state of hibernation after the property owner passed away. Eventually gutted by fire, the building was robbed of its elegance and hope of rejuvenation. The building then left in turmoil gradually disintegrated, finding purpose as a car park and scrap heap in the early 70s. Within this project, I wanted to reveal how although the building may not stand with its intended character, I think the building is far more interesting now nature and time have allowed it age and develop its own charm. I have compared the buildings in their two main phases of life through photo collage. In the first I show the building as if it had aged through time, maintaining the characteristics of the Palladian style with strong symmetry and organised features. In the second I have shown how the building has truly deteriorated, veering away from its original style and descending into a state of chaos. Personally I much prefer the style of the more chaotic artwork as I feel as though it represents the bitty and unpredictable life that the building has endured.
Model of a 'safe wing'- Advice cafe - Asya Gumus This diagram shows one example of a 'safe wing'. The ground floor is designed for quick and short term access/ support making it easy for residents to drop in without an appointment and seek support over the counter. The staff are dementia trained and will have the skills to support elderly resident needs. The upper levels are designed for longer stay where private councelling can be arranged and support group meetings can take place. Transparency, signage and familiarity within the design allow locals to feel comfortable when visiting.
Exterior View of the Laurieston Education Hub along Cleland Street - Shivani Sarjan Laurieston Education Hub This view shows the new 'street' created underneath the building. The commercial spaces have street level service counters here to interact with the wider public. In the back light cannons drive sunlight underneath the building.
"To Engage" - Section Model 1:50 - Zuzanna Woznicka Few shots of my physical model at a scale of 1:50. It was my first experience of building a sectional model, I understood how hard and time consuming it is, however, the model helped me to visualize how the building will work and feel the real scale. I want to definitely do more models in the future and try new materials and techniques.
Site axonometric - Elena Stefanova For the purposes of research and training, the Agrarian Institute has a flock of 45 sheep, pastures, and a model farm set up on site.
Transversal Sectional Perspective Zoom - Carlson Ko Drawing that shows the connection from the commercial area connected to the gymnasium. This would introduce great activities around Laurieston and how it would interact within the community and accessibility. Private Restaurant that would introduce jobs and great private time to have a greater view of Laurieston to Gorbals and Tradeston. Courtyard that would allow an interesting interaction with passerby within the building and with the curiosity will attract community to interact within the building.
The Site - Freyja Lehnen The project mainly occupies the upper half of the site as the site was already naturally split into two separate parts. The lower rectangle I left as it was in order to not disturb the view out off the neighbouring residential buildings.
1:50 Sailing Club Design Model - Lewis McLynn Final model I produced for AB208 Sailing Club project.
Seasonality of the building's programme - Elena Stefanova The functions of the Rhodope Council and the Agrarian Institute are determined by the seasonal rhythm of the land and resources. Together they create a system where each component plays its role at a given time and supports the functions of the other components.
RENDERINGS: Kitchen/ Outdoor Seatings - Gertie Leong Hei Li
Pnyx | Sections, Plans and Sketches - Ami Coulter The Pnyx are designed to encourage citizens to DISCUSS, enveloping pause points in the city. In Glasgow, these are often formed by green spaces offering the opportunity to slow down or stop for a moment. These spaces grant a particular opportunity for primary and secondary engagement with the programme. The reintroduction of the ancient form which has since been adopted and privatised, also reinstates the identifiable form associated with engagement in the public realm. Accessible to all, allowing citizens to gather together in their common moments.
1:20 Technical Section Through Entrance Lobby - Eilidh McGuigan The roofscape of the lobby and study carrells are specifically designed to enhance the user's experience within the building. The overhang on Market Street takes the user away from the street and creates a threshold into the building. The angle of the roof provides shelter from solar gain, creating a dark and intimate lobby space, emphasising the light and colours that shine in the wild flower garden. In addition to this, the roof is designed to gather rainfall with the large surface area and channel it into the central space to allow the flowers to grow.

Andrew McCluskie 1:20 Façade Accent Testing These images were created to decide the extents of Standing Seam Zinc within the Repurposed Sandstone Slips as well as to investigate how they would interact with the structural columns. The third test with the most zinc was chosen as it created the most layering and depth.
Exterior View of the Laurieston Education Hub along Laurieston Street - Shivani Sarjan This is a view of the east block along Laurieston Road. It shows the subtle interaction with the Gorbals, inviting the community to go through the arches.
Immediate masterplan - Angelika Hajdasz The project proposes a network of allotments connecting commonly used green areas of Glasgow (Glasgow Green, Richmond Park, Cuningar Loop) with the centre located on the opposite side of River Clyde from Richmond Park (Bridgeton). The masterplan proposes a pedestrian-only promenade located on French Street, which is connected to the Hub via viaduct. The route is established through series of interventions and allotments.

North and South Elevations of the Main Dock Shed - Ellie Carroll
Research background - Carla Feraru With accelerated consumption rates and unsustainable disposal practices, natural resource reservoirs are predicted to be depleted by the end of the century whilst our residual waste production is set to double. This thesis presents the opportunity for a new industry for the 21st century: ‘waste mining’, where waste streams both past (trapped in landfills) and future are mined and reintroduced back as resources in a circular economy model.
Interior view of the carers hub - Asya Gumus This space is used as a joint activity space for both elderly with dementia and carers. Regularly organized movie nights, exhibitions, theatre and concerts will be held in this space for the locals to enjoy.
Andrew McCluskie 1:500 Elevation to Old Dumbarton Road The façade is made mainly from stone slips formed from the existing on-site wall into which the new building embeds. Zinc Accents set within announce the programme within the wall sandstone. As the stone will match perfectly once weathered, the building should integrate with context as if it had always been there. In order to match the height datum of the existing wall, ceilings indoors have been raised to 4.5m which has resulted in better views to Benalder Bridge (the building’s physical connection in streetscape to Partick) from the Roofscape.
Typical section through production tunnels - Shravan George
Exploded axonometric model in 3D Context site model - Antony James Graham The 3D model allows for a thorough visual aid into the external and internal relationships of the building in relation the the special context of Clyde street, the River Clyde and the City centre of Glasgow. The model enables the floor plans, contextual plans and development investigation and research to be visually recognised in further detail.
Example of a 'safe wing'- Laundrette - Asya Gumus The laundrette is the most important medium sized intervention in this context as it is promotes an easy and independent activity that is also familiar to an elderly person. Informal encounters/ conversations can have a positive impact on an elderly persons daily life. The chosen coral/ yellow tones encourage social activity and invite the elderly to spend a longer times with their neighbours and other locals.

Site selection and remediation framework - Carla Feraru In Scotland, there are approximately 200 closed landfills with many more soon reaching capacity. This thesis looked at devising a framework that could be applied to remediate and valorise not only one but multiple of these historical landfills. The thesis proposes a trifold approach depending on the taxonomy of each landfill: green remediation, low-tech remediation and high-tech remediation. This project sets to test the high-tech strategy on the chosen site of Kilgarth Triangle.
The Floating Terraformer tackling Water scarcity and Acid Deposition Around the world - Sania Halim The project is setting is at the World fair because it gives a great opportunity for bringing everyone together in one place and inform them about the new technology that the worlds been encountering at the moment and encourage them all to be a part of it. A world’s fair in 2021 would bring millions of visitors and with them hundreds of millions of investments for the floating terraformer, a state of the art of technology. Other likely benefits of a New York world’s fair would include physical improvements to the city, the sprucing up of cultural and civic buildings throughout the metropolitan area; and renewed enthusiasm for the project in the eyes of the world. With its theme of connections, the fair would bestow greater recognition for the facility. It would be a world’s fair doubling as a civic celebration. By the year 2070, Most of our cityscapes like New York will be cleaned from inside and out, and the water scarcity problems will be at bay. Hence our future will be secured and much greener and happier.
Distribution of spaces inside the main recovery buildings - Carla Feraru The new industry proposes an integrated approach to waste management in such a way that resource recovery is maximised at each step in the circular economy chain. The entirety of the waste stream is divided into three categories: food waste, recyclables and residual waste. Each waste stream is processed on-site, minimising transportation distances, costs and pollution associated with the current waste management model.
DFN Proposed Buildings - Adele Melas The DFN masterplan proposal includes the following buildings: Primary Shops, Secondary Shops, Community Centre, Kiosk Wardens, Moderate Dementia Housing (Level 2), Severe Dementia Housing (Level 3), Medical and Health Centre, Admin Offices, Children's Nursery, and Public Toilets.
An Ephemeral Festival on a Floating Archipelago - Sowmya Mantha Design Studies In a rapidly developing world, high levels of stress have become an integral part of peoples fast paced lives. The proposed floating Archipelago concept is an initiation to uplift people and place by bringing together the issues in conjunction. Once the wellness of people is adhered to, through therapeutic benefits of water, it would then provide these individuals with an opportunity to pause and reflect upon themselves and together grow as a healthier community.

The landfill mining station - Carla Feraru The first component of the masterplan pertaining to the recovery part of the brief is the landfill mining station. Located by the landfill mound, The landfill station is where the dug-up waste is being sorted initially and separated from the soil fraction. Further, it is loaded onto the conveyor and proceeds towards the recovery buildings.
Masterplan - Mrunmayi Pandit The sensorial hub will encourage community involvement in achieving the goal of effective planning. It will create a place for the stimulation of the senses through green spaces. It will also provide a platform for self-created employment opportunities and sell them. This also ensures that people with disabilities learn the skill and will be able to teach others. It will provide the community with a safe and secure place to roam, educate, work and stay. The sensorial hub has 7 entrances in total. Pathway connecting to the station and site, railway station, and bridges over the canal is proposed for better access. The master plan is designed in a way to create a direct connection with all the surrounding communities. It has been divided into spaces such as gardens, a Reflection pool, amphitheater, Build spaces, parking and a Boating deck.
Fundamentals of The Lifeline - Shravan George ‘The Lifeline’ acknowledges London’s vast portfolio of abandoned infrastructure as an opportunity and an important medium for addressing the urgency at hand. At the heart of the project is a circular, zero-waste food production system that thrives on the flow of materials and waste products between the four food groups – Aeroponics, Aquaponics, Insect Farming and Algae Farming. These have been identified as four food groups that would be prevalent in our future diets based on research carried out in the 5A publication. While the abandoned tunnels provide controlled environments that are vital for aeroponic and aquaponic systems, the retrofitted buildings serve as physical manifestations of ‘The Lifeline’ at the surface and accommodate research centres, insect farming facilities, administrative offices as well as social and educational areas for public use. The controlled growing environments in tunnels and the associated systems in stations are made in a modular fashion so that they would be able to adapt to modern food trends and advancements in technology. The heat generated by the existing tube network, which would otherwise be lost to the environment is harnessed to power The Lifeline. This makes it possible to produce food with no reliance on conventional sources of energy. Moreover, algae tubes installed in the streets help remove excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
Social Services and Housing Section - Rebecca Irving The housing blocks and community services are located in the heart of the site. The requirements for the community services are based on discussions with a diverse group of women, who suggested we need ‘in-between’ spaces for people to access help and support, without direct intervention.
Sensory Installations - Mrunmayi Pandit All sensory installations are inspired by the natural form of the tree and each of them depicts an element of nature. The first installation depicts lights and colour showing playfulness. The second and third one depicts wood and earth respectively showing natural landscape and sense of place. The fourth one depicts metal, Constructed to simulate the sense of sound. The fifth one depicts water giving the effect of rain and creating a soothing sound.
RENDERINGS: Creative Workshop with Balcony - Gertie Leong Hei Li
Tenement Section 1:50 - Eilish O'Donnell For the "To Belong" project we were to work as a unit and survey a tenement block that we were assigned from Glasgow. We were to Survey the entire block as a group and then each person was to draw a small section and then we were to bring our drawings together to recreate the tenement block. This project gave me a better understanding of tenement structure and the tenement's place in Glasgow's history.
M8 Underpass - Rebecca Irving Ideas at the city scale include improving existing green spaces by increasing provisions of lighting and to ensure a community presence in such spaces. The M8 underpass, which leads pedestrians and cyclists to the centre for sisterhood, should also see improved lighting provisions and allow clear cycle routes.
Site Plan of Part E of the Masterplan - Kate Melhuish The Building aims to provide an immersive experience celebrating the Story of the Glasgow Washer Woman. This story if split into three parts. Part 1 is the Glasgow washer woman: The collective act of washing and getting clean has been prevalent throughout Glasgow's history. Before the creation of the bathhouse, or Steamie, the women from a certain area would gather together and head down to the river to perform the ritual of cleaning. The washing of cloths became a social and community activity, a time for women to communicate and support one another. Part 2 is the Goddess Clota: Depicted as a lone washer woman seated on the edge of the river or a ford the Goddess Clota was the Celtic deity of the Clyde. They worshiped the water and regarded the river as sources of fertility. The Clyde was known as the purifying as it carried large amounts of mud to sea when it flooded. an earlier name for it was Clwyd meaning heard from a distance. These qualities of the river were reflected in the Goddess she was known to be pure and hold the divine ear. Part 3 Is the Bean Nighe who is depicted as a lone washer woman. She is a female spirit or banshee, a messenger from the other-world. She can be seen washing blood from cloths at the ford of a river, it is believed that these are the cloths of those about to die. If approached with caution, a person may be able to get between her and the river they are entitled to the granting of three wishes or the telling of three truths. This varies within different versions of the legend.
"To Engage" - Floor Plan 1:100 - Zuzanna Woznicka In "To Engage project" we were meant to design the art gallery in the slice between the tenements. Since in this project we were quite limited with the form, I decided to focus a bit more on the interior design. I made a collage of the floor plan for each individual floor, to deliver the idea of the atmosphere I would like to achieve.
First Floor Plan - Anna Rogowska
The Lifeline Network - Shravan George The Lifeline consists of 5 distinct underground tunnel networks dotted across Greater London that are linked via the existing London Underground infrastructure. The produce that is grown in these networks is transported across the city at night using the Tube lines and is also made available at key Tube stations, markets and cafes. The whole tunnel network extends for 50.3km, producing 17,605 tons of produce annually - fruits and vegetables for over 45,000 UK households and fish for almost 100,500 households. Notably, the network replaces 4600 hectares of traditional, unsustainable farmland which could have produced carbon emission equivalent to that of 2200 households. Moreover, The Lifeline also produces insects, generates employments for thousands of people and supports 10 local foodbanks.
The Master Plan of an Individual Story - Kate Melhuish The image shows the master plan in perspective, highlighting the Architectural Time Capsule in the foreground and along with other part of the master plan such as the proposed bridge, re-imagining of the Peoples Palace, New Housing Development and a more celebrated entrance of the north of the Green.

Arrangement of Gathering Space - Mairi Watson A place for women and children to come together, fostering a sense of community and support.
First Floor Plan - 1:100 - Antony James Graham The first floor plan explores the educational and political nature of the building that offers further assistance in these fields for the public to learn, engage and participate in activities relating to Glasgow's heritage, culture, political and social status through workshops, galleries, lecture spaces, consultation rooms and the large main debating chamber.
Laundrette Cafe - Rebecca Irving A laundrette cafe in the centre for unpaid care & domestic work.
View Back to the Entrance Lobby Through Wild Flower Garden. - Eilidh McGuigan By designing the circulation space around the central wild flower garden, it strengthens the connection between the person and the outdoors. With views from every room to this lush green space, the library aims to improve the publics wellbeing and responds to the sustainable design outcomes.
Bird's-eye view of The Pends site with proposal - Milosz Cwiklinski
Photomontage - Nathan Constable Finally, then, is the finished concept. This was my first ever photoshop attempt and used a full SketchUp digital model and Google Maps images to create this photomontage. Thank you very much for looking at just a glimpse of my architecture folio from this year!
Ground Floor Social Study - Victoria Rozewska
Andrew McCluskie Reading Area for 4-5 year olds After the design of the external stair above, the lighting conditions beneath created an opportunity for a “secret cave” space at the West end of the ground floor plan. This means 4-5 Year Old Children are provided with a space whose atmosphere is evocative of storybook setting. The wall decals are intended to add to this effect. A hidden strip LED will illuminate the space while its discretion ensures retention of the imaginative atmosphere. In contrast, the book storage is in a more traditional Library format to help children make the transition to traditional libraries when they get older. The largest of the rooflights gives sky views from this area, opening up the internal experience while planting around will screen the books from afternoon sun.
"To Engage" 1;50 Final Model - Samuel Sharkey The final sectional model of the Blink Art Gallery, Kelvinbridge. This wooden model was used to photograph interior views of the proposed gallery.
Main Forum Section BB - 1:100 - Antony James Graham Section BB illustrates the diverse range in scale, hierarchy and spatial change throughout the building programme. Light is a crucial factor in enhancing the atmosphere, materiality and quality of the space, which is controlled by large overhead skylights that can be operated to change depending on the activity of the space. From Right to the left the public can be seen travelling through the building, rising and descending through gallery spaces, forums and media spaces that all offer opportunities to interact, learn and be heard.
The manufacturing workshops and greenhouses - Carla Feraru The production area of the masterplan is composed of greenhouses, communal gardens and workshops for local entrepreneurs. A central spine runs between the two levels hosting the production buildings and acts both as a ‘shopping street’ as well as an ‘urban’ intervention that mitigates the changes in level through publicly accessible green terraces. The layout follows the topography of the site, with the sinuous distribution of the volumes and their staggered layout allowing for unique views and daylight penetration.
Arrival to the visitor tour reception building - Carla Feraru The visitor tour is a very important component of the masterplan. Its role is to contribute towards better integration of waste management processes and society. By giving people the opportunity to observe first hand the activity associated with processing waste, they are encouraged to change their consumption and disposal behaviours.
Streetlights - Rebecca Irving The streetlight was imagined in response to the reality that women feel threatened by cities, night time, and strangers. It acts as a physical representation of safety in the city. It emits light which responds to movement and noise, and also includes brightness and emergency help controls.

Cross Section of The Lifeline HQ - Shravan George This section illustrates the HQ's connections to the tunnels below as well as to the newly pedestrianised Strand.
Materiality investigation - Jessica Gear Colour pencil drawing of the interior quality in the bath house element of the scheme
Rooftop Farming View - Finlay Ulrichsen The terraced farm plots stepping back northwards allows ample south light to reach each plot on top of a natural drainage and water distribution, with water moving from one plot down to the next following the pitched roof form. However it does more than that, it allows users to see the food produce from growth to consumption, getting that sought after direct connection with their food production. Its gives them an elevated view of the landscape and the community the design brings together similar to one you would gain from standing on top of the Necropolis.
Apparatus Drawing – Site Plan: St. Andrews Square - Giovanni Miscena
Interior View of the Entrance along the Study Bays - Shivani Sarjan Laurieston Education Hub This view shows the entrance as seen from the mezzanine. The entrance is centered along the main space creating a double height space which draws visitors in. the casselated beams are exposed to create the illusion of strong enclosure, while the brick detailing creates a human scale haptic environment along the walls.
Interior View of the Co-Working Space - Shivani Sarjan Laurieston Education Hub The co-working spaces is large open space designed for hot-desking as 'offices' become more flexible. It is a more public with its own elevator. The block also incudes more private spaces in the mezzanine above and meeting rooms. It opens onto two outdoor terraces and directly connects to the cafe block below.
Andrew McCluskie Flexible Workshop Space The Flexible workshopping space is designed to host School Trip Groups as well as everyday workshops for pre-school aged children that will be run by Centre Staff. As such the seating can be completely removed, folding away or stored in a bespoke unit built off of the retaining wall. A palate of light stained Larch is used for the furniture to maximise daylighting potential at the rear of the building.

AB208: The Sailing Club North East Technical Section Showing Gathering Space - Sophie Lathan
Site location - Daniel Kelly The Scottish government proposed new Scottish new towns located on the highlands and islands to deal with the overpopulated central belt. One of these site locations is on the Inner Hebridean Isle of Eigg.
Library Proposal - Expository Sectional Drawing - fineliner & watercolour (1:35) - Milosz Cwiklinski
Overpopulation of Scotland's central belt - Daniel Kelly Represented in comic book form, a fictional narrative of a future Scottish central belt is created. Here, the urban density has evolved into a conjoined megacity that covers the whole central belt area. Issues such as overcrowding and overpopulation have arisen, leading the government to develop population redistribution strategies.
The Structure - Fiona Wylie Construction of the building was heavily importance, taking sustainability and fire safety into account. As an image for sustainability in the community, the majority of the structure is glulam post + beam with CLT floor panels, in attempts to reduce the amount of concrete used unless necessary. It’s lightweight, versatile, and provides a warm + natural aesthetic within the urban farm, reinforcing the idea of eco-industry. Due to the tower being over 18m tall, it acts as an independent steel + concrete structure beside the timber structures, connected by an expansion joint. In case of fire the tower’s construction is non-combustible and a fire shutter can be placed in the atrium connecting the two structure types. A weathered Corten steel facade was chosen to give the building a lightweight feel in contrast to the building’s size over the heavy historical wall, complimenting the colour of the surrounding red brick buildings in Tradeston. The metal is a nod to Tradeston’s metalwork history. The Matrix rainscreen cladding system align’s with the required A1 non-combustible facade buildup due to the height of the tower.
Street Elevation - East, 1:700 - Giulia Panedigrano The pods aim to incorporate and re-interpret the same modularity within the M8: here, too, there is one commercial activity within each pair of pillars, and here, too, some variation is guaranteed by different colours, different elevations, different uses etc.

Andrew McCluskie Play Area and Roofscape Traditionally, a day out to a play area is almost exclusively a children's activity, with parent(s) acting as chaperone, arriving at the park, finding a bench and sitting on the outskirts of the space on which to wait. Partick Imagination Library's play area is conceived so that parents as well as their children are located within the play space, with the aim to get parents more involved with play, or facilitate social interaction between parents of more independent children. The Living Walls and integrated Raised Planters continue the atmosphere of the neighbouring Park onto the building roofscape.
Map of the Clyde Highlighting Existing Celebrations of History and Opportunities for New Ones - Kate Melhuish The Clyde is the main river that flows in the west of Scotland. It is a major feature in the natural landscape. Not only is it a prominent feature in the natural landscape but it is also key element in the development of places, memories and stories. This map highlights some of the told and untold stories that run along the riverside. Within this project I explored various stories and created an architectural time capsule of one, which can be used as an example of how to produce this corridor of memories, celebrating lost stories.
Urban Intervention of Interstitial Spaces. - Cham Zheng Chee Like a balcony, it creates a vast continuum of space with the city- awakening of the juxtaposition between the wide grasp of the city and the speckle of present self, translated in the vessel of an elevated pedestrian bridge against the city. The design proposal revitalizes one of the abandoned interstitial spaces in the city. The space shares the same railway line adjacent to the market space which allowed the liminal space within the urban realm to be continued. The façade facing the Bridgegate street is retained as the frame from its past. The pedestrian bridge along the railway stems towards the edge environment along the river, propelling human flow from the city centre.
Site map of the village of Gela - Elena Stefanova The site of the Rhodope Council and the Agrarian Institute is the village of Gela. Tucked away deep into the mountains, it used to be the site of a traditional gathering of local families
Main Chamber Presentation Visual - Antony James Graham In the heart of the building is the main debating chamber, located on the first floor, where the public and representatives debate, discuss and partake in events, conversations and moments to make change and be heard in the community. The rich interior of woods is a contrast to the ridged stone façade. The main chamber is flooded with natural light creating an atmospheric space of light, shadow and materiality when the activity is high. The exposed structure adds to the character and spatial quality of the volume drawing attention upwards to the gallery and light above.

RENDERINGS: Co-Working Study Room - Gertie Leong Hei Li
Floor Plan - Leena Hussain Coloured floor plan drawn at 1:100
Axonometric View - Diyana Mohd Fuad The building and the proposed masterplan. Due to the lack of context, several elements were introduced into the site - some of which are residential building blocks, and the wide open park.
Model of the carers hub - Asya Gumus This building is split in to the three. The ground floor invites the locals to join in coworker activities/ workshops and start up businesses, the middle floor proposes an activity space for both elderly residents with dementia and carers and the tower proposes private studio spaces that view the neighbourhood.
Models - Amelia Lepkowska cardboard/cutouts of development drawings/cutouts of Edgar Allan Poe's poems about dreams
Ground floor plan - Angelika Hajdasz The ground floor plan consists of a woodworking workshop, daycare, café and lounge areas. The centre provides multiple opportunities to expand someone’s interest and share talents. The activities offered to women are woodworking, which helps to boost productivity and sense of achievement, which boosts self-esteem as a side effect. Another important space in the building is the sewing workshop, a place where women can express their creativity through fashion and clothes.

City Brief Diagram - Rebecca Irving Sites were identified based on issues such as vacant and derelict land, feelings of safety, and areas of deprivation.
Centre Shared Kitchen - Rebecca Irving A communal kitchen and dining space in the centre for unpaid care & domestic work.
The Struture - Freyja Lehnen The structure of the project is half load-bearing walls and half structural frame. The idea for this specific structural split came from tenement buildings that have stores in the lower portion of the building. The lower half is meant to be very open and advertising what is inside, whereas the upper half is more closed off and private.
Location Plan (1:1250) for The Pends Site in St Andrews - Milosz Cwiklinski
The Floorplans - Freyja Lehnen The concept for the flooplans was to have an entrance area to the east, a more private area to the south and the north and west sides of the building are the main feature of each floor. There are also three points of circulation running on a diagonal through the building, the lift to the north-east, the main staircase in the middle and the fire stair to the south-west.

The brain of the Facility: Membrane - Sania Halim the brain of the facility: the membrane. It’s divided into three parts. The outer membrane or the collecting membrane, the inner membrane, and the transport system. The collecting membrane is further divided into two parts, the surface run-off texture which is a microchannel situated in the inner layer of the collecting membrane that condenses the tiny acid liquid droplets and directs them to the filter channel. And the porous membrane, which has a transparent outer graphene skin with tiny holes on it that effectively absorb the big acid droplets coming from the filter channel. Last but not the least the transport system consists of pendant tubes that acts as gas pipelines to collect the acid liquid from the membrane and transfer it to the purification center. Inspiration of the project taken from: PH Conditioner skyscapper, Evolo, 2012
Cinema Perspective Section - Anthony Mazeli Section cutting through ovoid shaped cinema drum to expose balcony seating arrangement for groups of six and three. The floating design intends to draw customers while protecting from virus spread and serving entertainment, with accommodation for scratch coated Perspex screens attached to balconies. Building programme is split into; circulation visible through transparent windows at the front of house; Cinema; and services at the back of house.
Main Public Forum - Antony James Graham The main forum space is a long double heighted volume that acts as a free space allowing for flexible function and use to accommodate the building programme to serve the communities of Glasgow. This space can be interpreted as a cultural venue, art gallery or a social gathering space where the surrounding amenities cater to public needs. A common factor in the buildings overall aesthetic and character is the use of stone, wood, light and shadow to create exciting, atmospheric and inviting spaces.

DFN Physical & Social Criteria - Adele Melas Findings from Mitchell and Burton, the key pioneers in the field of dementia-friendly neighbourhood research, have distinguished six principles which should constitute a DFN: safety, accessibility, distinctiveness, legibility, comfort, and familiarity (Mitchell et al., 2010). However, these factors focus primarily on the physical environment of a neighbourhood. Thus, for the environment to play a more holistic role in managing and preventing dementia, social factors such as safety, engagement, choice, sympathy, and inclusiveness, are proposed to accompany the existing, physically orientated set of criteria.
Collages representing the Past, Present and Future of Greenock - Ellie Carroll
Centre for Unpaid Care and Domestic Work Elevation - Rebecca Irving Externally, it is hoped that the streets would be activated by the activities from within and there would be a strong presence of natural community surveillance by the placement of openings, balconies, and windows across the elevations.
Mavisbank House / Symmetry and Order - Eilidh McGuigan The following artworks convey the regression of Mavisbank House. The Palladian villa was the first of its kind to be built in Scotland during the period of enlightenment, where it experienced an entourage of regimes. Originally built in 1727 by architect William Adam in collaboration with his client with intentions of being a stately family home, the building was erected with strict form and order which showed its stance in the local hierarchy. With being a sign of wealth and importance within the area, the building received high levels of care with a flock of maids and groundskeepers to maintain the property. Through time, and many pairs of hands, the building was eventually left in a state of hibernation after the property owner passed away. Eventually gutted by fire, the building was robbed of its elegance and hope of rejuvenation. The building then left in turmoil gradually disintegrated, finding purpose as a car park and scrap heap in the early 70s. Within this project, I wanted to reveal how although the building may not stand with its intended character, I think the building is far more interesting now nature and time have allowed it age and develop its own charm. I have compared the buildings in their two main phases of life through photo collage. In the first I show the building as if it had aged through time, maintaining the characteristics of the Palladian style with strong symmetry and organised features. In the second I have shown how the building has truly deteriorated, veering away from its original style and descending into a state of chaos. Personally I much prefer the style of the more chaotic artwork as I feel as though it represents the bitty and unpredictable life that the building has endured.
The Site History & Context - Kirstin Mackenzie
External Panoramic - Daniel Kelly Perhaps what is most interesting is where the infrastructure intersect with the island’s topography, especially the mountainous areas. In this specific area to the north of the island the machines have carved out large, volumetric, atmospheric spaces that inspire the citizens to contemplate and become one with their minds within the atmospheric spaces provided. The vertical elements of the infrastructure control the kinetic architecture whereas the human infrastructure is horizontal.
Left: View underneath the canopy of one of the greenhouse. Right: View on the lower platform between workshops towards the green terraces - Carla Feraru Underneath the canopy of the greenhouse roof an intimate seating space is created and offers beautiful views of the community garden and orchards beyond. From the upper platform, one can descend on the steps towards the manufacturing workshops. Each landing provides an opportunity to stop for a moment on the green terraces where you can have a picnic or just soak in the sun.
Sciographical study of the main markethall - Fatema Hassan This shadow model emphasizes the spatial environment of the main market hall. A sense of outline and shadows have a heavy influence on the overall spatial experience of the visitors. This sketch filters and shows light penetrating through the old and new facade throughout the day in a pattern. The timber frame structure supporting the roof and skylights extends through all heights of the market hall's form. The structural columns give a sense of order in a dynamic and clustered space where many activities happen in.
Urban Balcony 1- a perspective render. - Cham Zheng Chee The entry of the Clyde promenade distributes the pedestrians in the form of an extensive urban balcony, a gradual gradient that eases into the site while distilling the permeable edges of the riverfront urban space that interacts with the adjacent building as well as the liminal spaces surrounding it.
THE STACK - Ross A Aivaliotis THE CONCEPT: To retain a part of the existing tenement red sandstone façade. As the visitor wanders up through the building less and less of the existing facade is retained and the new building begins to dominate. This new build slopes over onto Dumbarton Rd. at a 70-degree angle. The angle of the new build gives the feeling of protection to the street below as well as becoming a very visible urban form to the vehicles and pedestrians whilst they move east to west and vice versa along Dumbarton Road as it appears out of the existing urban landscape. The allegory of a boat being set up on a dry dock dictated the angle and relates the building to the history of the area. The new building is sandwiched between the retained adjacent side walls of the neighbouring tenements and uses the warmth of the sandstone as a backdrop throughout the section of the building. Floating platforms create the gallery floor spaces. The new building form will be in white and opaque white emphasizing the stark contrast to the surrounding buildings not only in shape but in materials. The front elevation is internally illuminated and at night appears as a ghostly form floating above the road. Artwork by Toby Patterson
Long section of The Floating Facility and Plans - Sania Halim The [PH] floating terraformer, as the name implies, is designed to float in the air using maglev technology. The repulsion induced by the structure’s magnetism and the earth’s magnetic field would regulate the buoyancy of the structure, causing it to migrate up to altitudes of 700m, where acidic contaminants typically congregate. Acidic materials, such as acid fog, will be absorbed by the porous membrane attached to the airbags and accumulated in the central purifier, where they will be neutralized by an alkaline solution formed by nitrogen-fixing microorganisms by biological activity and deposited in the purifier center. The water and salt generated during the neutralization process are fed to plants, trees, humans, and deserted areas, among other things. Initial Location: Central Park, NY, USA Program: 1500-2000 inhabitants anticipated Total Height: 257.5 m Status: Reviving atmosphere, Technological Research and Development The terraformer will be seen as the first step towards a greener future without acid pollution, water scarcity and climate problems. Hence, reviving our ecosystem around the world part by part.
Centre for Sisterhood Site Plan - Rebecca Irving The centre for sisterhood design response developed based on brief requirements and existing site context- such as the residential building at Speirs Wharf. 5 key blocks were established with a central corridor linking typologies. Inclusion of green space throughout the site was driven by the aspiration to include safe, enjoyable outdoor spaces for women.
The education wing and museum - Carla Feraru In addition to the recovery facilities and associated staff and research centre, great importance was given to the education of the community and visitors alike, about the new industry. As such, an education centre, as well as a recycling museum, were included in the recovery area of the masterplan. The education centre is seen as a key space for the local community to use. Free access to the laboratories, classrooms and library are given to school groups and visitors alike, encouraging participation and knowledge gathering about the issues at hand.
St. Andrews' Character Collage - Victoria Rozewska
The Interior View of the Facility - Sania Halim A single terraformer will have a radius of purification index of 300m and a radius of influence of 450m. On an average one floating terraformer will be able to generate 4117.6 tons of water per year and 420.88 kg of fertilizer per year and 2826.6 tons of reclaimable water per year. The calculations give us an approximate timeline of years needed to clean one city, then one country and then the entire world.
Biodiversity Section - Rachel McLure
Cinema Section - Anthony Mazeli This section shows the cinema functionality through sight lines and projector throw. It also depicts the building programme with a spacious bar area on the ground level to encourage socialisation while maintaining a safe distance, hall areas with alternating floating bridges leading to cinema, and a gallery area on the 5th floor.

George Square Arx | During Protest - Ami Coulter The design centres on verticality, drawing the users up to be eye to eye with the City Chambers – a very prominent power/political symbol within the city. At this height there is an honesty of position, the citizens can see what is happening in their city, as they ascend, they are offered a panoptic view unhindered.
The Inclusion Insurrection - Anna Rogowska The Inclusion Insurrection is an architecture movement created by a group of young architects, who oppose widely spread xenophobia and intolerance in Poland. Fed up with passiveness of general population and visible acceptance of prejudice and bigotry of the ruling right-wing government, they have decided to create a new, culture fluid style, putting a spin on the old motto of the first activist architecture group-modernists: ‘form follows foreign’. In order to bring acceptance of multiculturalism to the monogamous society they plan to influence Poles with the following framework: introduce -> familiarize -> normalize. Starting out in one of the biggest cities, with a now seemingly forgotten history of diverse nationalities coexisting peacefully, they plan a set of architectural interventions utilizing the new style, created through breaking down of the language of architecture. As a starting point they have decided to work with an anti-racism organisation "Never Again" Association, creating their new branch combined with a cross-cultural hub located on the main historical artery and current representative promenade of the city-Piotrkowska Street.
Candle making workshop - Fatema Hassan Candles are hung on the timber frame to dry. The workshop is well lit with eight skylights aligned symmetrically against the main counter. The timber frame extends to the end of the space to form a grid of timber columns and beams to place candles ready to be packaged.

CULTURAL STUDIES- URBAN HOUSING - Kallia Ioanna Terraced Houses are significant and need to be treated with respect, as they form the foundation of cheap housing in Glasgow since the 1960s. People’s history is written in these houses and should not be kept and hidden away.
Exploded Axonometric - Fatema Hassan The workshop spaces are situated on the top floor in varying forms overlooking the courtyard garden. The void of the courtyard garden serves as a light well to penetrate light into lower public floors. Floors are connected by stairwells and stairwells that lead directly to the outside, these stairwells also lead you up to the food hall and top floor workshops. Ultimately, the whole proposed form is two separate volumes connected by public routes and gardens for a unique journey through spaces of various activities.
The Master plan of an Individual Story in Elevation and Section - Kate Melhuish
Approach to the 'safe wing' model - Asya Gumus Each safe wing involves a different activity. Other designs include gardening and sensory therapy that reduces stress and anxiety that can surface due to progressing dementia. Each safe wing will include a different colour/ character/ material in accordance to the interventions use, such as red promoting energy, motivation and activity and blue promoting a calmer and less stressful environment. These colours are important for elderly design as it can slow the process of the developing dementia amongst the ageing population.
The repair workshops, market and community spaces - Carla Feraru The consumption area is envisioned as a central space for gathering and leisure. Multiple routes converge to and from the square, making it a focal point for the masterplan and local communities. The buildings here host, on the lower platform a market as well as public workshops for the community, a material library and a repair shop. In addition, a community kitchen and meeting spaces for community groups are incorporated on this level. On the upper platform, the visitor centre is located to the left of the main community hall, a flexible space that allows the local residents to gather informally.
Concept Development - the programme / the influence / the form - Fiona Wylie The programme influences the form, splitting the building into 3 wings containing its 3 uses, tapering through use, to learn or to apply knowledge. The linear placement of programme reflects the journey of production: learning how to, seeing it done, and then doing it yourself. In each wing, there is a round central gathering point to break up the orthogonal qualities of the production spaces in the building, and promote community interaction. Looking at the exterior form, the perimeter of the building is parallel to the boundaries of the historical 5m tall perimeter wall of the site, whilst the interior is splayed to maximise south light for greenhouse production. When the concept meets the context, inspiration was taken from the typical solid Tradeston block with u-shaped voids, mixed with the tower typologies of the historical Tradeston tower in its context, the classic agriculture silo, the tree, the typical greenhouse, and tradeston's peaked roofs, to come to a final form.
A Sense of Playfulness - Nathan Constable During the design process, a concept takes many turns. That is no more evident than here. As can be seen in the initial sketches, the facade sat flush with the rest of the street. However, through digital and physical modelling and stretching the concept to its limits, a more attractive solution was found. Initially for those walking at street level, they main attraction to the gallery was a paint marbled piece of art on the pavement which would utilise the colours chosen on the block idea and create a sense of arrival at the gallery. The chequerboard squares used in the very first concept drawing evolved to jut out into the street and allow those inside to view, connect and engage with the street from multiple angles (and later it was decided colours through the use of adhesives on glass), as well as create a sense of playfulness within the space and an additional draw for those on Byres Road or Great George Street. This was an idea taken from the themes used by Roderick Buchanan in his art.
Arx | Plans and Sketches - Ami Coulter The programme and activities of Arx are rooted in citizen ACTION. The current city space which embodies this energy most are its urban squares, symbolic spaces of communication, assembly and expression. Arx looks to embody the meaning of the word, become a fortress for the citizens, a refuge. An entity which can be equally and freely experienced by all users. Illustrated architecturally as a beacon within the city, re-appropriating architectural monuments of power / control / the state, and instead granting it to the citizens.
Circulation System for Acid Fog/Rain - Capture and Release Process - Sania Halim The capture and release system of the floating terraformer of distributing water and cleaning air can be seen around the world, especially around the water-scarce lands and drought areas of North Africa, Egypt, etc, and deserted and devasted lands of Thar, Sahara, and Mohava, rainforests of Amazon and Africa and so on.

Axonometric of Glasgow Tenements - Laura Kennedy 1:200 Axonometric of the existing tenement block on Great Western Road. Used as part of AB108 site analysis to help understand the rules of the street.
Greenhouse and workshop typologies - Carla Feraru The greenhouses symbiotically coexist with the recovery facilities in such a way that one’s waste becomes another resource. Food waste from the crops is reprocessed on-site while CO2 produced in the waste-to-energy process is captured and used to enhance the growing process. The small scale manufacturing workshops are located on the lower platform of the production area. The workshop space is located on the ground floor together with a shopfront where products are displayed and sold. The design studio and meeting room are located on the upper floor.
Interior on the Largest Graving Dock - Ellie Carroll
Study Booth View - Eilidh McGuigan The main idea of this library design was to create a central focus around the wild flowers within the central garden space. Within this, there was strong inspiration from the architect, Peter Zumthor, who believes, “A garden is a very intimate space. It requires care and protection. To do this, we encircle it and give it shelter. The garden then becomes a place.” From this, I designed the study spaces around the garden so not only does the garden become a space to dwell and reflect, but the shelter also allows the person to be taken away from the street and left with the garden in a quiet intimate atmosphere.
Glasgow Dérive - Ami Coulter From dérive’s, various patterns which draw in the wanderer were noted: Beacon elements that break the skyline, Changes in pattern, material, colour, or texture, Key provocative elements, posters, artworks, activist boards etc., Repetition and rhythm, Layering and depth, Specific elements of intrigue which don’t seem to fit formally or are unexpected.
The recycling and energy production facilities - Carla Feraru The main recovery area of the masterplan is expressed through a series of spaces hosting a material recovery facility, an anaerobic plant, and a plasma gasification plant. These three components work together to manage incoming waste streams, retrieving reusable and recyclable products and turning the rest into energy and valuable by-products.
KSENOfilia - Anna Rogowska The proposed building - KSENOfilia includes the new office as well as an array of spaces encouraging dialogue and cooperation of people from all backgrounds, nationalities and religions. From a café with performance space, through a recording studio, to a multicultural content focused library, space will be provided to give voice to those excluded from mainstream intellectual and artistic discourse controlled by systemic racism. The form of the building was created through a playful mixture of different architectural styles from countries with considerable number of immigrants in Poland. Deconstruction and synthesis of forms, details, patterns, and rhythms led to creation of a design with a diverse and simultaneously unified identity. Just as all the styles come together in this one architectural piece, so shall all cultures in Inclusion Insurrection’s hopeful vision of the country’s future.

St. Brides Church Artwork - Lewis McLynn Comparative artwork produced for Cultural Studies.
Proposed Community Village - Asya Gumus Master plan strategy aims to connect, protect and reset ambitions of the elderly community. Inclusivity, accessibility and safety is created by integrating different scale interventions and reusing vacant/ neglected land within the area. Dementia design principles are integrated into this process including familiarity, transparency and wayfinding.
Sciographical study of the sectional model - Fatema Hassan This section highlights and emphasizes the contrast and structural relationship between the inner and outer facades. The outer facade is a series of carved openings into the masonry wall while the inner facade is composed of the grid of timber columns making it a transparent facade to the interior courtyard.
RENDERINGS: Kitchen/ Indoor Seatings - Gertie Leong Hei Li
Site Usage Plan - Fiona Wylie Due to the site's unique placement and size, it is ideal for not only indoor vertical farming, but also allows for exterior agriculture, community gardens, and public spaces to bring more open green space to Tradeston.
Interior View of the Mezzanine along the Study Bays - Shivani Sarjan Laurieston Education Hub This view shows the other opposite double height informal study space as seen along the study bays. These bays are acoustically protected by the wooden louvres and the cieling is lower to create a more private , quiet space.

Integration into everyday life - Shravan George These visuals show how The Lifeline becomes an integral part of the daily lives of over 2 million Londoners who use the Tube everyday. The innovative and sustainable food production methods are manifested outside the hubs by means of vending machines at busy Tube stations, Lifeline cafes dotted across London, as well as posters and visual media. Social media plays a crucial role in educating the younger generation as well.
External Visual Showing Connection to River - Kate Melhuish
F. Moderate Dementia Housing - Adele Melas The housing proposal is specifically targeted for individuals facing moderate stages of dementia, whom can no longer live entirely independently without forms of assistance. The concept embraces co-housing and intergenerational living with a young nurse practitioner, young carer, nurse or medical student, who are equipped to take on the role of the ‘carer’ by discretely offering assistance, in a non-institutionalised nature. Both residents would equally learn from one another, form a very strong friendship bond, and yet have their own privacy. Essentially, the two households join via the entrance-point communal kitchen and living room, and move into their own space through a progressive privacy layout.
"To Engage" - 3D view - Zuzanna Woznicka 3D view of my design is a photomontage of the physical model, photography and patterns. It was quite challenging because I had to work from 3 point perspective, which is still quite new to me. This project definitely made me understand that I still have a lot to learn about the drawing basics such as perspective, shadows and geometry. There is a lot to learn about digital design, which I am really excited about.
Long Section Through Wild Flower Garden - Eilidh McGuigan This long section displays the direct correlation from all areas within the building to the greenspace in the centre of the design.
Exploded Axonometric View of the Facade - Gertie Leong Hei Li The facade was designed to be modular where pieces can be replaced and restored very easily. There are three different types of variation, including Solid Walls, Glass Features and Green Walls. Green walls are to be placed facing the South and East side of the site where solid walls are featured on the North and West side of the site, designed with holes, which are to deliver a sneak peek of what's going on inside the building from the pedestrians.
The Stations - Shravan George Down Street – abandoned station takes care of seeding and germination processes. Charing Cross – active station takes care of packaging and storage. It also helps link The Lifeline to the Tube network (in this case, to the Bakerloo line).
Canal Street Urban Green Route - Rebecca Irving The urban green route of Canal Street connects to neighbouring communities and the city centre.
"To Engage" - Section B-B 1:100 - Zuzanna Woznicka In this section, the main focus was to show this "hanging staircase" in a dramatically tall hall space. The gallery space is located on the last two floors which allow the space to be used after opening hours as a community centre or meeting point.
The Section - Freyja Lehnen The section is defined by the void in the middle of the building that doubles as a staircase. The idea is the use the natural features of St Andrews, for example the rain, to power the building. The design form was based on the conditions of the site.
Technical detail - Fatema Hassan In comparison, a rendered model interprets the differences between the interior and exterior elevations of the selected region to cut through. The technical section highlights the material relations of the facade with the interior activities.
G. Community Centre - Adele Melas The Community Centre offers indoor venues for residents with dementia to enjoy leisure activities alone, with friends, family, or general members of the public. As the DFN encourages engagement with social and physical factors in the outdoor environment, the essence of this is brought internally within the community building. This is executed by continuing of the red path, the distinct orange entrance which responds to the High Street colour rhythm the internal skylight and courtyard, and exposure of light external materials on the interior facade which increase natural light reflected in the space. The building's curves, gently winding edges, surfaces, and paths, are regarded as more legible to dementia-users.

Iter | Plan and Sketches - Ami Coulter Iter looks to surpass boundaries, slow citizens down, allow time and space to THINK and experience others. In Glasgow, it assumes a largely disused railway track which flows through the centre of the city. The focus is on holistic connection, the experience of layering another street or Iter, within the city, and the connection points introduced. It offers a new completely pedestrianised route, removing the intrusion and speed of the car, returning freedom of movement over the speed of movement. It draws people closer together and transcends boundaries whilst utilising acts of compression and connecting different parts of the city similar to Luchtsingel in Rotterdam.

"To See" - Site Section 1:100 - Zuzanna Woznicka Site Section 1:100, representing the layout of the pavilions within the site. The site I have chosen has uneven terrain, which was quite challenging from a technical point of view. The site had a river view and multiple points of access which were the main reasons for me to choose this location. What I really like about this picture is the misty atmosphere, in the future, I would like to achieve this effect more often.

External Market View - Finlay Ulrichsen The design brings together the various communities of the surrounding area under the ethos for sustainability, teaching the residents and the next generation about a direction for a better future for Glasgow and the Townhead area. Creating a safe and relaxing environment for users in the site, an environment where a parent can bring their child to experience nature and sustainability in their very own local community.
C. Cross - Adele Melas As a common characteristic of crosses over time, both in history and in the present, a tall clock-tower is placed to mark the centre of the Laurieston Cross. This functions as a prominent landmark for orientation in the masterplan as it is visible from all parts of the neighbourhood. The streets in each bearing meet the cross as a market, forming a vibrant and active dwelling and transition zone, and further emphasising the literal shape of a cross across the site. The roofs over the markets exposed to the High Street (north and west wing) are structured in as rigid rippled effect, symbolising the rhythm and pattern of individuals shops in the High Street facade, whose life can be continued onto the streets.
Longitudinal Section through The Lifeline HQ - Shravan George This section illustrates the connections between The Lifeline HQ and the abandoned tube tunnels below. The tunnels accommodate a public exhibition space (tunnel) and a fine-dining restaurant. The tunnels are accessed via capsule lifts that take users through a vertical exhibition (lift shaft).
Elevation in Context - Eilish O'Donnell I wanted to use this image to show my building in context, to play with the perspective by taking a simple CAD elevation and bringing it to life with movement and depth. This project has helped me develop my CAD skills and I aim to develop these skills further in year two.
Ground Floor Plan - 1:100 - Antony James Graham The ground floor plan is home to the public elements of the building allowing free movement and interaction for cultural, political and social events and activities. Multiple entrances from the newly pedestrianised Clyde street and off the Clyde walkways frontage enter into gallery spaces, forums and into a multitude of free spaces detailed to fit a programme that assists the public in educational, personal and leisure related matters. The main spaces consist of large events forum spaces, a large public auditorium, free space lecture spaces, public representative offices and a public debating chamber. The entire building is present to respond to public needs and give voice to the individual and community that need to be heard in a building that is publicly directed and observed.
Glasgow Tenement Window - Laura Kennedy 1:10 Detailed drawing of a tenement window using CAD. Emphasising the importance of line weights and hierarchy of line through a digital output rather than a physical hand drawing.
Masterplan - Angelika Hajdasz To reach more people, the project provides a network of She Sheds in various parts of the city. Smaller sheds are focused either on woodworking or sewing depending on the community’s choice. The locations were chosen by analysing the need for mental health support in the communities and the proximity of the location to Men's Sheds, libraries and Mental Health Centres.
Sketch journey through library design - Lewis McLynn Quick sketches I produced for AB210 Library Project to generate ideas of how the journey to and through the building would look and feel.
Section and elevation 1:50 - Zuzanna Woznicka My first attempt at section and elevation, a combination of hand drawing and photomontage.
Royal Infirmary View - Finlay Ulrichsen The design provides a scenic view from the hospital wards of rooftop farming and biophilia, with the design’s large disc roof “peeking” above the various layers of greenery and planting. The site creates an inviting and relaxing natural space for in-patients, who may not be able to travel far from the hospital, to go for a bite to eat with family, watch a performance or simply stretch their legs for a change of scene.
Structural & Environmental Strategies - Amy Aquilina
Welcome to the Grand opening of The Floating Terraformer, World Fair, Central Park, NY ( The Manifesto ) - Sania Halim Pollution is one of the most significant challenges that humanity is facing right now. Pollution percentages have been rising exponentially since the 18th century’s industrial revolution. This industrial outbreak has caused a variety of environmental problems, including ozone layer destruction, decreased oxygen-to-carbon ratios, and acid deposition. Acid rain washed out trees in Europe, wiped out wetlands in areas of Canada and the United States, and affected human health and crops in China, where the problem remains. The cause was sulphur dioxide and nitrogen oxides released by the combustion of fossil fuels in automobiles and manufacturing facilities such as smelters and coal-burning utilities. When these atmospheric toxins react with water and oxygen in the soil, they chemically convert into sulphuric and nitric acid. The ecosystem disruption caused by acidification is clearly seen in the Adirondack and Catskill Mountains of New York in the eastern United States. Many wetlands and streams in these regions are no longer capable of supporting aquatic populations, and water quality is severely impaired. To combat the acidity crisis, the project ‘the [PH] floating terraformer’ has been set out at the midst of New York City in Central Park. The project’s goal is to create a system that gently removes acid and toxins from the atmosphere while emitting zero carbon in the process.
Axonometric - Anthony Mazeli Exploded view and seating arrangement separating building into its smaller features. The building is made up of (from Left to Right): balcony façade intervention, existing faced plus extension, circulation stairs, floating bridges + service area, skylight, and cinema.

The Cross Concept - Adele Melas Crosses are conceptually chosen as the ideal settings to accommodate the Dementia Friendly Neighbourhood. Being vibrant in character and centralised in location, they offers individuals with dementia the opportunity to continue life as normal, participate actively and integrate with society. Often stemming into high streets, they increase accessibility and safety between homes and primary services, which heightens independence and confidence. Vitaly, they facilitate the creation of a ‘walkable zone of experience’ for individuals with dementia (Blackman, 2006).
Urban Balcony 3- a perspective render. - Cham Zheng Chee Like a balcony, it possess contemplative means, gravitational gestureS, and perhaps an out-of-body experience; with all in a singular experience.

Andrew McCluskie View from Benalder Street Bridge Initial analysis of Yorkhill Park, which the site is bound by, revealed a need for improved access and public realm. Therefore the access stairs were rotated to receive pedestrians from Partick and accentuate their desired path. The scheme will also provide disabled access to Yorkhill Park for the first time. A green buffer and internal balustrades will ensure privacy in the main library space and increase biodiversity on site.

Future Riverfront Masterplan Diagram - Ellie Carroll
Phases - Mrunmayi Pandit The program is divided into 4 phases as development in 2-5 10 and 15 years. Phase one consist of leisure spaces such as sensory trail, gardens, and accessible boating. Phase 2 is a built space which is co-working spaces, workshops, library, etc Phase 3 is for plaza and Accommodation for future commercial and shelter needs. Phase 4 is to provide sensory spaces all over the city as a small intervention or in form of a sensory place.
Past conditions and proposed masterplan - Carla Feraru Historically associated with an array of industrial activities, today the site of Kilgarth Landfill sits derelict, awaiting a new life. The role of the new industry would not only remediate the land, returning it to the ever-expanding surrounding communities, it would also create new and diverse employment opportunities in the process.
South Satellite - Rebecca Irving The South satellite transforms Old Caledonia Road Church into another centre for unpaid care and domestic work. This would primarily serve existing communities in the Gorbals and in Laureiston. A tower element is included to form a connection to the other sites for sisterhood which helps establish cohesion throughout the scales.
Research and Manifesto - Anna Rogowska Despite its turbulent past Poland has had a long history of tolerance for other cultures and religions. It has unfortunately seen a decline in recent years with acts of racism, hate speech, and xenophobia becoming an almost every day occurrence with no visible repercussions. The two main questions that this project aims to answer are: ‘why is it happening?’ and ‘what can be done to stop it?’. Insurrections and Uprisings have been an inseparable part of our history following multiple invasions and attacks. So much so that there is a separate page on Wikipedia collecting all Polish uprisings featuring 16 pages and 23 subcategories. Just as in the past Poles had to rise up against invaders and occupants, it is time to rise up against intolerance and injustice. After analyzing the timeline and recent events certain conclusions could be drawn and overall society profile with four main factors could be recognized. All of these factors served later as a guideline for creation of the Manifesto. While creating the manifesto, lessons derived from previous analyses have been applied. Thus the following workflow model has been developed: recognized issue -> possible solution Based on proposed solutions the specific manifesto points were created, after which the architectural solutions were modeled.
Stair Design - Laura Kennedy 1:20 Construction drawing of stair design. Using the technical handbook was vital to ensure that my design complied with the regulations.
View of Consumption Space - Conor Ryan McCormack Down the Rabbit Hole_3B To Play.
Program - Laura Krumina Rehabilitation can be a long and complicated process. Without integration between phases, this can very quickly turn into an isolated environment. We need to redesign the way we approach this as just having rehabilitation facilities without integration within the community can emphasise further problems. I propose a facility that blends these boundaries and accommodates a healthy rehabilitation environment that concentrates on four aspects of recovery: Body_Soul_Mind_Hearth.
Labelled Site Plan of the Shipyard - Ellie Carroll
The Main Entrance - Fiona Wylie After entering the building from Cook street and rising up through the building, the main entrance acts as a "tree" base for the rest of the growing tower, with a glass floor looking down into the seed library. At the center of it is introductory information about hydroponic growing, and the space splits off into the learning spaces, the main atrium, growing spaces, and the wellness wing.
Recycling Factory - Viktoria Georgieva
Masterplan of proposal - Axonometric of Souika, Constantine, Algeria (1.7m x 2m) Pencil, Chalk - Nassim Belgroune This drawing helps to contextualise the proposal within Souika with all 5 phases incorporated, it views the gorge as the centre rather than the perimeter edge of the scheme creating a better understanding of the vast changes in levels at each point of the site.
Long View Through Wild Flower Garden to Entrance - Eilidh McGuigan By only providing views towards the green space in the middle of the building, the user develops a strong connection physically and mentally to the outdoor world. Not only does the direct connection to the green space physically transport the user away from the busy city surroundings, but mentally it is proven to enhance students learning, reduce stress and improve general wellbeing too.
South Satellite Shared Kitchen - Rebecca Irving The communal kitchen provides a shared productive domestic space. It should allow users to take control of the space and form social connections.
The elevated walkway - Carla Feraru The landfill mining station is also the place where the elevated visitors’ walkway (orange) enters upon a viewing platform over the landfill. From this point onwards the visitor walkway sits on top of the conveyor structure (purple)and proceeds towards the reception area of the residual waste facility.
Flat Type B - Exploded Axonometric - Giulia Panedigrano
Section A-A - Angelika Hajdasz The stairs are one of the main gathering points in the centre. This is a place from which the majority of the centre is visible so it is a perfect place for socialisation while on the move from one workshop to another or to just sit back and enjoy the views.
Elevating Building - Entry Zone - Sania Halim Everyone visiting the floating terraformer will be entering the worthy zone first, the place where one is elevated mentally before reaching to the beyond. The worthy zone or the elevating building welcomes people and inform them about the present global climate change that we are facing right now and how dire it is to change the inevitable before its too late therefore introducing everyone to the first of its kind future technology which changes our future and give us our planet back by cleaning it from inside and out. The facility welcomes everyone who wants to help in this cause and offers jobs and employment to millions of people around the world. The user groups will include Researchers, Scientists, Engineers, Architects, Doctors, students, funders, businessmen, tourists, etc.
Interior of the Education Hub's Atrium and Reception - Ellie Carroll
Long section - Andrew Devine Section through the length of the building which shows the tower and how it intersects the existing building
View from the upper terrace of the consumption area down towards the square - Carla Feraru The amphitheater seating not only makes the transition between the upper and lower level of the site at this point but is imagined to be used in conjunction with the ‘square’ and act as spectators seating for activities such as concerts, theatre shows and movie displays. During weekends, the indoor market ‘spills’ onto the square and local residents and visitors alike are invited to sell unwanted goods or sustainably produced products here. Together with the ‘shopping street’, this area of the master plan is designed and imagined as a walk-through town. Despite the language of the masterplan following clues and conditions from the urban environment, the surrounding park context is highlighted and enhanced.
The Lifeline HQ - Shravan George This visual shows how the interiors of The Lifeline HQ capture all the different food production groups in one space and serve as a portal for the pubic to experience them.
Section B-B - Angelika Hajdasz The centre provides multiple opportunities to expand someone’s interest and share talents. The activities offered to women are woodworking, which helps to boost productivity and sense of achievement, which boosts self-esteem as a side effect. Another important space in the building is the sewing workshop, a place where women can express their creativity through fashion and clothes.
Plaza - Mrunmayi Pandit A Plaza has been provided as a market space and community area. A Plaza mainly consists of shops and also small covered spaces are proposed for the pop-up shops and kiosks on the weekends. Plaza is designed in such a way that it has a visual and direct connection with the surrounding. It is accessible from all sides and creates ease of movement. The Plaza is one storey structure with metal sheet cladding and glass with bamboo columns for aesthetic purposes.
E. Severe Dementia Housing - Adele Melas Level 3 Housing proposal is for individuals facing severe stages of dementia, whom require assistance 24/7. The proposal is bungalow in form, low is scale, domestic in style, and accessible in function. To battle isolation and enhance physical and social stimulation, residents live in small groups of 3-4 per household, and are encouraged to participate in all aspects of normal living to the best of their abilities. The immediate neighbourhood setting of the homes de-institutionalises the generic appearance of long, narrow, and dark double loaded corridors in conventional care homes. In the case of the neighbourhood, the ‘corridors’ between homes are in fact real life streets.
Interior Elevation of 3 Study Bays - Shivani Sarjan Laurieston Education Hub This interior elevation shows 3 Study Bays ranging along a mezzanine. It shows the relationship between these spaces as well as the larger building. The large windows frame the space while the desk forms and interlocking partition to divide but not entirely seperate the spaces. The bay accomodates several ways to work, including a formal desk, a bookshelf and a bench.
The Cook Street Entrance - Fiona Wylie As existing, the tall historical wall surrounding the site creates an imposing barrier along Cook Street, but this proposal plays with the thresholds along the street edge, to make it more inviting. The placement on the corner emphasizes visibility and transparency from a distance, with the restaurant perched over the sidewalk to create a clear entrance, and the growing production clearly visible as a green beacon.
The History Timeline - Anna Rogowska In order to gain a better understanding of the nature of current situation within Poland it is crucial to explore its rich, but painful history. To aid this, a timeline of the country’s past has been created. It gives a quick overview of the turbulent past, together with most important events directly impacting the modern outlook on foreigners in Poland.
Section - Laura Kennedy 1:50 Section taken through gallery proposal showing art work.
The Garden Approach - Fiona Wylie The exterior view of the south side of the building, among the community gardening plots and the courtyard. Alongside the greenhouses, a secondary facade of algae growing panels are on the south side of the building to help generate renewable energy in the form of biomass, which then feeds back into an anaerobic digestor to create energy for the building.
