Kingston University School of Architecture and Landscape Exhibition 2016
Posted / Wednesday, May 25th, 2016
The School of Architecture and Landscape at Kingston University invites you to the opening of its Summer Exhibition for 2016, showing the work of our Architecture and Landscape courses alongside those of the wider art and design courses in the faculty.
The work in the School has built upon the wider projects of the last few years and the longer traditions of the School, and reflects our commitment to a material, social, ethical and situated understanding of our constructed environment. Projects range in scale from landscapes, to cities, buildings and interiors, and focus on a social understanding of our environment and its inhabitation, addressing both past, our own time and the possibilities and dilemmas of the future.
The Pavilion reception takes place Saturday 4 June at 4.30pm, in the grounds of the Dorich House Museum, 67 Kingston Vale SW15 3RN.
Saturday 4 June 1.00pm–7.00pm
Sunday 5 June 1.00pm–5.00pm
Monday 6 June to Thursday 9 June 1.00pm–7.00pm
Friday 10 June 1.00pm–5.00pm
Private view – a practice evening: Thursday 9 June 6.00–8.00pm
To coincide with the opening of the Summer Exhibition, Unit 5 will be exhibiting their new Japanese ‘Red School’ inspired viewing tower looking over Richmond Park, containing an intimate room inside for informal meeting. It is dressed with zinc, hand split wooden shingles and charred timber, all crafted by Unit 5 students in collaboration with Terunobu Fujimori during his residency at Kingston in March 2016.
