3rd Year // Academic
The project is connected with Bluecoat, in my view the most lively art gallery in Liverpool, also because they are dedicating part of their 2017 programme - which focuses on 300 years since the building’s foundation - to concrete.
In 2008 Bluecoat reopened and a new wing was added by the Dutch BIQ Architecten. The mission was to engage and innovate the existing building, making it more dynamic and effective. Eight years after its completion, how did it work? Is it the extension fulfilling all the requirements?
As a final year student, through an open and responsive pedagogy. I will be analysing spaces that are working and effective while placing the whole context on ruins. Thus, emphasising the importance of timeline through grade listed buildings in the UK as well as the concept of as found spaces.
