Building Studies


SPACE_PLAY

Space_Play is a design studio run by architectural and urban designers to research, challenge, and develop ideas about the buildings and cities we live in. Our passion for both designing and making has led to establishing a base with dedicated studio space and equipment. We currently operate in-house laser-cutting and 3D printing along with workshop space for the production of architectural model-making and crafted designer products and artwork. We take a proactive stance in developing our own projects, artwork and research, but also accept commissions and collaborations. We are a very small team with extensive experience in architecture and urban design both in the UK and abroad, but our passion lies in collaborating with others to challenge, define, and develop ourselves through every project.

Central Library

Jan 2019

There is, unfortunately, a recent trend of brutalist architecture being demolished, particularly in the UK. Our investigations into some of the UK’s best brutalist buildings over the past four years has seemed increasingly focused on buildings that are either due for demolition or sadly already lost. But this has inspired us to create a range of artwork that mourns these losses and emphasises them being “Missing”. Our first blog on this series revisits where is all started for us. Birmingham Central Library. .

Welbeck Street

February 2019

In anticipation of our new artwork releases on Welbeck Street car park we have prepared a building study to investigate this amazing structure. It is an exciting example of British brutalism and we’ll be exploring the beautiful and tragic story of this gem as a commemoration that is hopefully worthy.
