- Project Title
- Paper Farm
- The self-written project brief explores the relationship between craft and technology and how modern technology is dislocating us from place and architecture from genius loci. The approach to designing within Gloucester was to reinforce the positive aspects of its past, such as trade and industry, whilst finding a way to resolve its fragmented nature. The Paper Farm, for Gloucester’s youth not in employment, education or training, is an expression of the paper making process. Intrinsically rooted to site, the priory becomes a symbiotic microcosm of paper production, fusing agriculture and industry within the city and re-introducing local craft and trade. The symbiotic nature of the scheme employs a holistic approach to sustainability, unifying the processes within a continuous origami canopy.
