THIRD YEAR – BSC (HONS) ARCHITECTURE
In offering students alternative typological design options related to present day categories such as leisure, culture, micro-industry and agriculture, the goal is to explore with project outputs as not merely an illustration or vision, but as a demystified distillation on the contemporary urban predicament. Located in Morecambe, the first semester project induced an engagement with framing as an imminent architectural condition of analysis that raises questions of de-territorialisation. The Ichthyic Centre proposes potential functions ranging from fish and shellfish sea farms to an associated seafood/fish market. The facility is also an opportunity to house support facilities to aid in educating and supporting coastal food production as a major contribution to the local economic profile of the town and its historic associations with the sea.
