Group 17

Our agenda is to safeguard and transform a music venue into a vibrant community resource. With a vision that will take place over the next decade, it will become a space for local people to gather. An institution dedicated to promoting local culture, arts, heritage, inclusion, community resilience, well being and citizen participation. We will bring our building into full and productive use and be able to expand the potential of the club for the next ten years.

About Me: I am interested in Adaptive Reuse and the Story narrative method through architecture. Carlton Club is a great historical building with lots of potential for re-use. It’s a good opportunity to transform this old house to promote local culture and attract more citizens. I am keen to share my skills in hand-sketching and software with all the students in the group! Outside the studio, I enjoy travelling, video games and drawing.

Atelier: Continuity in Architecture
Skills: Adobe Creative Cloud, Revit, Hand Sketching, Modelmaking
About Me: I am interested in a range of architectural typologies, from large residential schemes to small interventions in public spaces, and have a particular interest in contextualised design that responds to people and place. Outside of University I have a passion for music, walking, anything food related and a mix of sports. Carlton Club 2032 presents an exciting opportunity that combines a personal interest of music and events with a design project, and I’m excited to meet the team and see how ideas develop through collaboration.

Undergraduate: Sheffield Hallam University
Atelier: MAKING
Skills: AutoCAD, Revit, SketchUp, Photoshop, Drawing Express, Modelmaking
About Me: I am interested in conservation architecture and people-centred design. I chose the Carlton Club Project because I was intrigued by the idea of envisaging how the Carlton Club building could be repurposed or brought back to its former glory. I thought that my previous architectural experience of working on heritage projects and prior to that, working behind the bar at a pub, could bring a fresh perspective to the team, helping focus on ideas that would be liked by club members. My hobbies include playing weekly football for a local women’s team and I enjoy taking my dog Hugo for long walks in the mountains.

About Me: I am interested in residential projects. The Carlton Club project appealed to me because I wanted to combine my architectural interests with my interest in music.

Undergraduate: Brighton School of Architecture and Design
Atelier: Infrastructure Space
Skills: Revit, Adobe Creative Cloud, AutoCAD, Vectorworks, Modelmaking, Knowledge of RIBA work stages 0-7
About Me: Within architecture I am predominantly interested in large scale residential projects and urban masterplanning. However, I also have a curiosity for smaller scale interventions like that of the Carlton Club 2032 project. The scheme is related to music and events, these are two things I am interested in outside of architecture and I am looking forward to working on a project that combines my work and hobbies. I am also a keen sportsman, and I am particularly interested in football and cycling. I would love to be able to help students with my software knowledge and design process skills.

Day 6: Team Building 2.0

Marshmallow Challenge: We play a game which is to build the tallest free-standing structure with a marshmallow on top. It is a great way to encourage team members to collaborate, problem solve and to model design thinking such as testing and iterating. By constantly trying something new, receiving immediate feedback and implement the new learnings in the next prototype, Innovative ideas will continue to emerge.
