LASSCO was proud to donate reclaimed pine boards to WORKSHOP Architecture for their upcoming exhibition, Not What, But How.
WORKSHOP is a non-profit organisation that deals primarily with impoverished communities, building schools and learning environments.
The centre piece of the exhibition is a large live/work space comprised of shelves, desks and a ladder system – made entirely of Reedyford Mill Pine. It’s on display in the Front Members Room of the AA Bedford Square, from the 16th of November to the 14th of December.
Details of the event can be found on the AA website here.
WORKSHOP architecture is a non-profit design and make studio that focuses on participation, learning by doing and cultivating a deeper understanding of place. Living temporarily within the communities they work with and engaging with local building crafts they aim to bring about an architecture which is both challenging and pragmatic.
Originally installed earlier this year at the British Council in Delhi, this exhibition will include new material from Project Hariharpur (due to be completed by September 2013) as well as preparatory material for the next project, which will be implemented in collaboration with the Indian NGO Aarohi. An AA Visiting School will be held in the two weeks prior to the opening, in order to explore ideas for the next project through hands-on making in the exhibition space.
WORKSHOP architecture is led by Clementine Blakemore, Alexander Furunes and Ivar Tutturen.
