Check out Greenpeace’s Detox Fashion Manifesto.
it urges consumers to challenge brands and demand that they create fashion free of toxins. (The good news: a number of companies, including H&M and British retailer Marks & Spencer are already at work pioneering green chemistry, and phasing out some majorly harmful substances).
The Centre for Film and Visual Media Research Birkbeck College
Architect: Surface Architects (Richard Scott)
Location: University of London, London, UK
The Centre is a unique research facility within the School of History of Art, Film and Visual Media. The project’s chief objective was to provide the Centre with a range of purpose-designed accommodation that will enable it to expand its activities, recruit additional staff and ensure its long-term future.
The auditorium of the centre is a tapering black volume at the heart of the project. Around this is the richly diverse break-out and circulation space. This space can been seen to have an ‘other–world’ quality of complex form, colour, light and texture. From this environment, occasional glimpses are offered to the familiar context of London’s Bloomsbury. Numerous connections are made to the original terrace that has been simply refurbished with a grey-scale palette to provide further teaching and office space.
Conceptually, the break-out circulation space is created by a ‘cutting block’ that tumbles through the ‘solid mass’ of the extension, morphing into different configurations. This movement is frozen at particular points in time like a stop frame animation. It creates a 3D cutting pattern that carves out the space and leaves a reciprocal imprint on the space. The material characteristics change as the shape changes, giving a variety of colour, texture and reflection.
