National Saturday Club - designing for co-existence
TateHindle hosted a masterclass for the National Saturday Club, an educational initiative which aims to inspire the next generation and help young people discover the creative industries.
A workshop on the theme of co-existing took place at The Cass, London Metropolitan University’s School of Architecture, and explored how changing lifestyles are impacting how we live and work today. TateHindle’s Nahdya Thebault, Jemma Miller, Gus Mirmalek and Louie Wilkes discussed new trends in co-living and working which are gaining in popularity in the UK. The group was tasked to consider different house types, from student accommodation to family homes and housing for the third age, alongside workspaces, the public realm and green open spaces. Equipped with glue guns and coloured wooden blocks representing different examples of living, working and recreation, students designed a community for co-existence. Bringing their ideas and sketches to life with a series of colourful models, the group demonstrated an abundance of enthusiasm and fresh thinking about making places for people.
We’re looking forward to seeing their drawings and models exhibited at the National Saturday Club’s annual show at Somerset House this summer.
