Hooke Park Architecture, Making and Place

  • 15 August — 19 September 2015 *on now

Architecture, Making and Place presents student-designed architectural works from Hooke Park, a 150-hectare ancient woodland located six miles North-East of Bridport and owned since 2002 by Architectural Association School of Architecture (AA).

The site contains an educational campus dedicated to developing sustainable rural architectures and innovative applications of timber. Students use the workshops and woodland as a site for their learning, research, designing and constructing.

The premise of the projects is that architecture is best learned through engagement in its making, material and place, whilst considering the wider community of West Dorset’s rich craft tradition.

The exhibition presents the activities of Hooke Park through photographs, drawings, models, video works and full-scale prototype components of live architectural projects.
