project title Podyssey

project description Designed to be Scotland’s first open access, post-pandemic co-work hub, Podyssey is a collection of five ‘nodes’ across Glasgow: Work, Live, Care, Learn and Grow. Reusing the former ambulance building on Maitland Street, the Work node aims to reflect post-pandemic work by offering non-traditional amenities for office workers, including artists’ studios. It consists of portable plug-in pods that host shared facilities. The framed construction allows for customization and a sustainable way of working, with the pods easily adaptable to a changing business.

project title Redivivus – a way to overcome oblivion

project description The project examines how the Venetians can regain control of their city, which is too often seen as just a tourist commodity. Located in the Arsenale di Venezia, Redivivus presents an imaginary architecture in which skill restoration and boat building become a core element in reforming the Venetian economy and reducing its dependence on tourism. The project envisions architectures arranged according to the spatial logic of pre-industrial shipbuilding coupled with a revival of craftsmanship and the use of contemporary materials.

teacher quote The design response here is among the best we’ve seen in recent years – not only due to the compelling drawings, but also thanks to the clever balance between rigor and openness in the testing and development process. Gordon Murray and Piotr Lesniak
