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.
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.
