Year 1 Students at Pitzhanger Manor House
5 December 2011
In Soane Annex(ed), the Bartlett presents new work by BSc Architecture Year 1 students which annex six areas throughout the Pitzhanger Manor house, using it as a testing ground for new ideas and concepts - challenging the traditional understanding of 'architecture', 'design' and 'space'. The temporary nature of the installations offers students a freedom to experiment with materials and crafting.
As Professor of Architecture at the Royal Academy, Sir John Soane had a tradition of opening up his home to his architectural students. Pitzhanger Manor's fourth collaboration with Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL, continues this practice, engaging Soane’s historic Pitzhanger Manor-House with contemporary architectural installations.
