A vision with Pitsmoor Adventure Playground updating the current facilities to ensure longevity and continued success for the children and wider community of Pitsmoor and the Burngreave Area. Collaborating with artist Steve Pool, we used loose parts play to engage with the children to investigate how architecture and play can be combined.
The Future Factories Live Project was tasked with addressing the question of collaboration between makers in the context of the emergence of new industries and modes of work in arts, crafts and manufacturing. The clients provided two distinct issues; firstly, how to encourage collaboration among makers and craftspeople, secondly, how to improve the use and development of historic industrial spaces turned to new use. We were provided with Live Works as a space to work within and were invited to exhibit our work and ideas as part of Sheffield Design Week 2016. Our response was an adaptable exhibition to facilitate the meeting, conversations and events that facilitate connections between makers, as well as a smart phone application that created a dispersed network of individuals linked through their common interests and productions.
