  • 11th December 2018 - 19th Jan 2019
  • Project Space

L-R: The Periscope Pavilion (Dewdney); Hotel Mollino, The Bedroom (Lezou); The Bladder (Wilford)

A recent project by Max Dewdney is presented alongside the projects of this year’s RIBA Presidents Medal winners and nominees. RIBA Serjeant Award Winner for Part 2, Marilia Lezou Hotel Mollino and Alexander Wilford winner of RIBA Bronze medal commendation. Also included in the exhibition is the work of Liam Bedwell and Simona Moneva, President Medal nominees.

Marilia Lezou’s project, Hotel Mollino: Staging Spaces of the Everyday as Heterotopias of Performance in Scenography and Architecture, explores the performative potential of a series of scaled models through a set of film stills that navigate the viewer through the design.

Alex Wilford’s project, The Smithfield Meat Market sits in Clerkenwell and suggests a structure that furthers the local context, providing for both the meat market by night, and the public by day.

Liam Bedwell’s The Lithium Empire is a project that speculates on a rapidly developing lithium industry and the subsequent birth of a new architectural built environment.

Simona Moneva’s Remnants of War: UXO Risk Assessment HQ is a project unfolding the issue of unexploded ordnance being unearthed at building sites all over London.

The students’ work will be showcased alongside Max Dewdney’s most recent research piece: The Periscopic Pavilion Glass Study 03, as part of an ongoing design project by Max Dewdney Architects [in collaboration with Gosia Malus & Martin Aberson]. The Periscopic Pavilion Study 03 acts as a testing ground for Max Dewdney’s architectural practice, which uses curation and architecture to address projects across a range of scales – from residential and community buildings and gallery / exhibition design to the scale of the pavilion and object.

This joint show is dedicated to the demonstration of excellence in design from both students and tutors at the University of Greenwich. The display is a testament to the importance of design teaching as ‘research hubs’, with student – tutor creative collaboration in the field while simultaneously celebrating a successful academic year for Architecture at the University of Greenwich.

Private View: Tuesday 11th December 2018, 6-11pm.
