Meet The Collaborator

We're mainly collaborating with The Architecture School for Children (TASC), along with Tam Dibley who is a member of TASC and Rogue Artist's Studio.

TASC used to be recognized as 'Places' serving as a a community Interest Company based in Greater Manchester. TASC has worked with children and communities for the past 18 years, effectively engaging with them by bringing together schools, artist, developers, architects, educators, children and the wider community to look at and contribute to the development, design and build of their environment in a creative and collaborative way.

Initial Design Proposal

Before the first meeting with TASC, we came out with a few Events proposal based on the activities and programs usually held by TASC in their website

Having focused on working with the communities and children, our proposals mostly include engagement and experience with the design products.

1. Play Library
Play Library is an interactive installation that provide spaces for kids to use as a library and play area. It includes variations of different spaces like open space, enclosed space, different materials for different experience as well as spaces for fun activities like jumping, hiding and climbing.

2. Self-sustaining ECO tools
We're looking to engage with kids and teachers to design a self-sustaining eco tools that help plants grow with minimal effort, learning the importance of ecosystem and how we can help to contribute as designers. The idea aims to utilize the different methods of recycling and use of natural resource.

3. Modular Play-thing
The aim is to design a big scale modular components that can be used by kids to create useful or fun objects in school

4. Sensory-based Interactive Play
This proposal was an installation proposal that use sensory as main concept, playing with different potential of sensory experiences for kids to engage with.

During the first meeting with TASC, we were welcome by Dan, Catherine and Dan. The main topic of discussion was to structure a brief and understanding of EVENTS20 final outcome specifically for our group.

TASC were very supportive with our design proposals and suggested we proceed with what we want to do along with BA students despite having a design brief themselves.

We were asked to design a gallery for young people, aiming for it to be flexible as well as being used by young artists locally and globally. TASC gave us a tour to site after discussion. We have decided to proceed with designing the gallery space using one of the initial design proposal as our concept.

The Space

Aiming to create a space for youth to bring their works to life, we collaborate with The Architecture School for Children (TASC) working on proposals for a flexible exhibition gallery for young artists. The space is located in a Grade II listed building, which currently operated by Rogue Artist Studio. The proposed space is located on the second floor of the building, highlighted in green.

Precedent 1 - TASC Publication

TASC has published a few books providing information and data regarding the activities and events previously held by TASC. The publication help us understand how the agenda and aim of TASC was fulfilled through activities and design, as well as how TASC engaged with children and communities in the best way to achieve a successful outcome and joyful experiences. We intend to hold an event that has a similar impact towards the communities and target clients.

Precedent 2 - Exhibition at the Deutsches Hygiene-Museum, Dresden

Another precedent study we referred to was the Kéré Architecture's Sceneography Designs for Exhibition on Racism at Hygience-Museum located at Dresden.

The exhibition space was separated into 3 different rooms representing and giving off the vibe of 3 different atmospheres. Each room used different materials of exhibition structure, different methods of exhibition and different theme of exhibit works. The transitions between each room create a journey to narrate the works in a timeline form, showing a conflict between people’s desires for stability and the organic need for social transformation, emphasizing the charm of the temporary and importance of conversation.

Each rooms also uses different ways of lighting and illumination, particularly studying how the lighting will enhance and amplify the exhibits. The layouts of each rooms are organized with consideration to the narrative of the works exhibited.

One of the method of looking at what a Gallery for Young People mean is through understanding the difference between older generation of artists and younger generation of artists. In a discussion, we look at different interests and hobbies as well as the different types of art works resulting from the interests.

From listed variation of exhibits, we try to develop a design that enhance and showcase the artworks in the best way in the gallery space.

Tutorial & Talk Session

Dan will be sharing a session to talk about his working experience in TASC, along with the different construction, design and structural approach in realizing activities that have been successful in the past.

We will also be working on site at TASC's studio and gallery space together with Dan and Catherine to experience an on-site live project, dealing with TASC as clients through tutorial sessions.

Because of the current Covid-19 situation, Young Rogues' Exhibition event unfortunately had to be cancelled due to it involving engagement with communities, collaborators and students.

The whole process has tremendously helped us understand and learn about the pros and cons of holding an event and engaging with people, with consideration on our roles as architects as well as our possible contribution and positive impact we're leaving to the society.

With the project having the potential of being a live project, new doors of opportunity was open for us to work with our collaborator in the future and create new connections along the way. It has been a wonderful experience to be working with TASC, and we wish to continue being involved when given the chance. Despite being cancelled, we're hopeful that the overall process can help contribute to future collaboration and proposals for the project.

We deeply appreciate and are sincerely thankful to all collaborators, lecturers, artists, and students that have helped us in any way throughout the process in making our events fun, educational and interesting!
