From 29th July to 10th August the studio will be collaborating with STORE Summer School in Coal Drops Yard to lead a collaborative design project with local school students.
STORE’s annual Summer Schools are presented in the form of a two week workshop in architecture, art and design. Each year, students are bought together to work with experimental design and construction projects to create large scale installations and ambitious public performances. The Summer School culminates each year in a celebratory final event.
This year’s Heatherwick x STORE Summer School will work towards creating a mini food market. Through material testing and engagement with Coal Drops Yard and its surroundings, the students will explore the dynamics of the city while developing the skills to intervene effectively and creatively on the project. Regular design critiques, photography and portfolio tutorials will provide valuable opportunities for critical reflection on their work both as a team and as individuals.
This course is open to local state school students (16+) with varying levels of experience.
