OSA REVIEW: Cullinan Studio, OxArch Resilience Lecture

In the latest OxArch lecture, Roddy Langmuir from Cullinan Studio spoke about collaboration as a design methodology and their work on the National Automotive Innovation Centre. Credit: Cullinan Studio Cullinan Studio pride themselves in their holistic approach to design and their active interest in embracing and incorporating innovation into their work.

OSA REVIEW: Architype, OxArch Resilience Lecture

As part of OxArch’s Resilience Lecture Series, UK's leading Passivhaus practice, Architype, spoke about the importance of approaching sustainability as a holistic method of design. The Enterprise Centre (UEA). Credit: Architype It is easy to fall into the trap of thinking, both in practice and in academia, that sustainability is a far-off problem.

Geography meets Architecture in Shelter Work for the OxArch. Credit: Professor Cathrine Brun “A disaster zone where everything is lost offers the perfect opportunity for us to take a fresh look, from the ground up, at what architecture really is.” - Toyo Ito Focusing on her work in Sri Lanka, where she, as a geographer, collaborated with architects in order to re-create the community after the civil war
