INSTAGRAM TAKEOVER! by MASS @massatcass - the Architecture Student Society at London Met Uni. This year, Unit 09 will develop proposals that engage with a ‘scale shift’ and develop from studying the work of Berenice Abbott who photographed the rapid transformation of the scale of New York from 1929-39. Like Abbott’s images, the proposals will be above and beyond their immediate context, they will set a new scale for an evolving city. The unit is working at the scale of an entrance or stairway, testing spatial research from a collective typology study.

INSTAGRAM TAKEOVER! by MASS @massatcass - the Architecture Student Society at London Met Uni. Unit 04 is continuing its interest in 3D scanning, drone photography, Virtual Reality (VR) and game engine technology as augmented tools to engage more directly with the extreme topography and textural conditions of this complex context. This year, the unit’s site is Mount Etna and the volcanic area of North-Eastern Sicily. They will aim to deploy VR not only as an immersive representational opportunity, but also as a design apparatus permitting design experimentation using 3D painting inspired by Pablo Picasso’s experiments with light painting and 3D modelling and compositing in first-person view. The intent is to free the design of conventional scalar considerations challenging the projection and the projected image as the primary form of architectural representation. Unit 04 strives for an architecture adapted to both the natural landscape, extreme topography, and the climate but with character and unique qualities springing from both design technique and a meticulous exploitation of the local volcanic and timber materials used in combination with emerging technology. The hybrid material condition, augmented by our proposed design technique, allows us to appropriate the complexity of our terrain and texture of the context in a different way. It aims to re-discover new grounds for architectural representation and design. #Londonmetuni #thecass #thecassart #studentlife #studentwork #architecturedrawings #architecture #architecturestudent
INSTAGRAM TAKEOVER! by MASS @massatcass - the Architecture Student Society at London Met Uni. Unit 02’s site this year is St Anne’s Close between the optimistic modernism of Walter Segal on the north, builder's-classical Swains Lane on the south, developer’s Neo-Tudor Holly Lodge Estate on the east, and leafy North London suburbia in Highgate West Hill on the west. The character of the area has been formed by the casualness of the architecture and the way that people have occupied and used it. The unit is aiming to design residential architecture as freely as that which is already there, according to the style and issues of the present times, which is low in energy consumption, spatially generous, open to interpretation by successive occupants, reconfigurable, extendible and community forming, where children can play freely and safely as they do in the Segal scheme.

◾️Down on the farm: puddles, poultry and piglets. ◾️London Met Journalism first-year students pulled on wellies and anoraks and made a wet-weather visit to Freightliner’s Farm, an urban oasis in central Islington. ◾️It’s all part of the hands-on Reporting Skills module, which involves writing about the local area as part of crafting a Holloway-based blog. Other visits include trips to a homeless shelter, Arsenal Stadium, local cinemas, hair salons and a Christmas market. ◾️This year, students clucked at chickens, fed apples to goats and marveled at an 17-year-old cow with arthritis. But the main highlight was undoubtedly three 15-year-old piglets – two spotty and one plain – who were part of a litter of 12 New Zealand swine that will grow to be knee-high and weigh about 20 stone each. ◾️Coming in close second was when an over-zealous goat tried to eat student Nikos Papanikolaou’s headgear, chomping away at his hoody as he tried to listen to farm manager Liz McAllister speak. ◾️”The goat found my hoody tasty. But [fellow student] Cheryne was scared,” Papanikolaou said. “She thought it would chop off my head or something.” ◾️Freightliners, which this year is celebrating its 40th anniversary in Islington, has about 40,000 visitors a year, according to McAllister. “For me and a lot people who come here regularly, having a city farm is one of the best things you can have in the city,” she said. ◾️”I love the farm. It’s kind of creepy but I’m enjoying it,” said student Alison Edge. ◾️#londonmet #londonmetuni #londonmetropolitanuniversity #journalism #studentjournalism #journalismstudent #reporter
INSTAGRAM TAKEOVER! by MASS @massatcass - the Architecture Student Society at London Met Uni. Unit 06’s focus throughout the year will be concerned with loosely fitting together things which are made at different times and then endure; so that made pieces fit with both a past fabric and future needs. The units preliminary project based in South Bermondsey which is full of a diverse array of brick, steel and concrete sheds, formed the fabric of a proposal to either convert, adjust, extended or re-assemble an existing building to better suit the needs of the existing inhabitants. This year, Unit 06 offered students a choice of three sites: Athens, Greece; Calabria, Italy; and Freetown, Sierra Leone. All three are, or have been, migrant gateways, and transitional settlements for the uprooted and offer opposing civic scales (top down v. bottom up) within which the drama of urban change is being played out. Images in order by Angali Bhatia, Lionel Giordano, and a site map by the Sierra Leone group. @cass_unit6 #Londonmetuni #thecass #thecassart #studentlife #studentwork #architecturedrawings
INSTAGRAM TAKEOVER! by MASS @massatcass - the Architecture Student Society at London Met Uni. Unit 15 @cass_unit15 strives to produce projects that are grounded in economic reality and hands-on practice. The unit will explore what agency our abilities as architects equip us with to challenge the status quo and address critical, contemporary urban issues, employing the diverse skills our architectural education equips us with to produce diverse strategic architectural proposals that have the potential to become prototypical models of the future. The unit has been carrying out collective research of Erith in the London Borough of Bexley, casting 1:1 plaster models of the building fabric, and drawing and mapping the urban condition. The unit will produce a common vision for Erith, working on publicly owned sites across the high street, industrial estate and riverside to realise an ambitious vision for the town. At a time where London’s cash-strapped boroughs are implementing deeper cuts to public services, high streets are ailing and land for industry is increasingly vulnerable to housing development, they will test the potential for new forms of civic architecture, social enterprise and proactive policymaking to positively and radically renew the built environment. #Londonmetuni #thecass #thecassart #studentlife #studentwork #architecturedrawings #architecture #architecturestudent #plastermodel
INSTAGRAM TAKEOVER! by MASS @massatcass - the Architecture Student Society at London Met Uni. Unit 05 @cass_unit5 begun the term collectively studying a series of private houses, drawing, modelling and painting the interior passage of rooms from front door to garden, engaging with and developing a focus of the relationship between the House and the Garden. The unit is currently developing proposals for a small cluster of houses on the site, translating spatial research from each precedent study, as well as research developed on the unit trip to Marrakech. #Londonmetuni #thecass #thecassart #studentlife #studentwork #architecture #architecturestudent #architecturemodel #modelmaking

INSTAGRAM TAKEOVER! by MASS @massatcass - the Architecture Student Society at London Met Uni. Unit 14 has been making drawings about the Roding River that runs through Barking, East London, and the adjacent sites. The brief is part of a wider research project, currently being carried out by Barking and Dagenham Council on the area. Engaging with a variety of protagonists with interests in the area to evolve proposals for the Roding riverfront and environs, the aim is to contribute to the revitalisation of the borough for the benefit of local residents as well as newcomers. The unit will look at the history of land ownership and its economic impact on the lives of ordinary people and ask how they may procure and design urban settlements in which to dwell more equably.

INSTAGRAM TAKEOVER! by MASS @massatcass - the Architecture Student Society at London Met Uni. Unit 07 has been undertaking the collective design and self-build of a polyvalent structure made of grown materials, timber and hemp, at full scale on land at Margent Farm in Cambridgeshire. The images show the proposed structural model at 1:10, and then on site under construction last week. The unit is focusing on the practice of architecture as a partially autonomous discipline, to experiment with applying a pre-defined model to place and to see how the dialogue emerges. The pre-defined model that they are interested in is characterised by polyvalence – it should be able to adapt, with minimal modification, to accommodate different uses. The next phase of the major project will look at how the model might be adapted further when applied to sites inside and at the edges of social housing estates in London above the 100-year flood plain. The unit continues to be concerned with how material and industrial cultures will shape the world in the near future and are still driven by a desire to intelligently and creatively challenge the regulations, supply chains and processes that to a large extent prescribe how the buildings we inhabit are made, function and feel. #Londonmetuni #thecass #thecassart #studentlife #studentwork #architecturemodels #timbermodel

INSTAGRAM TAKEOVER! by MASS @massatcass - the Architecture Student Society at London Met Uni. Every day, we’ll be introducing the different postgraduate units at The Cass. Let’s get going... Today’s image is by Unit 08 who continue their interest in the Midland Cities. This year, the site is Stoke-on-Trent, a city with a legacy of expressive building and industrial heritage that is now diminished. The unit spent the first few weeks of term in the workshop, making 1:2 detail models of facade fragments of existing public infrastructure in Stoke-On-Trent. After a unit trip to Florence to study the work of Alberti and Brunelleschi, the unit is currently preparing proposals for a small-scale council service centre for the constituent towns of Stoke, which will experiment with the language of the Venturi’s ‘Both-And’ to define the civic in the every-day. #Londonmetuni #thecass #thecassart #studentlife #studentwork #architecturemodels #timbermodel

This morning I went to London Metropolitan University to sign my contract. I’ll be teaching Business Translation to MA Translation students in January. It’s only one lecture, but it’s a BIG win for me. It proves that if you work hard for something you want, then the chances of achieving your goal are pretty high. . . . A few months ago I created a vision board where I collected pictures that represent my short and long term goals. Guess what: one of the pictures was the logo of London Metropolitan University. . . . The best thing is that I was referred by a colleague that I truly admire, someone who has inspired me to be the best professional I can be from the very first day I decided to go freelance. . . . So here’s to dreaming big, to setting goals and working hard to achieve them. If I made it happen, you can too. Cheers! 🥂 . . . #dreambig #smartgoals #goals #objectives #dreams #dreamon #makeithappen #translation #translationstudies #translator #highereducation #londonmetuni
