September 11 - October 31
Harvest is a new temporary open-air meeting and learning space, created using straw bales as building blocks. This exploratory project has developed in response to the legacy of post-war architects Alison and Peter Smithson, their connection to the University of Bath and in particular their installation Patio and Pavilion work (1956). It also resonates with utopian urban thinkers such as Walter Segal (1907-1985) and those engaged in the Back to the Land Movement. Situated in the unique architectural context of the University, Harvest will operate as a ‘free’ space open to all.
The structure will host a series of free events, discussions and workshops co-curated with Griffiths and will consider the university as a walled city, a capital force and a utopian space. Visitors, students and staff are also encouraged to use the space for their own discussions and informal meetings. more >>
