Project Details


The project exploits the creative synergy of the new ECA by bringing together staff and students from three diverse disciplines, architecture, textiles and glass in an innovative research-led workshop. The workshop will explore surface, texture and light, predominant characteristics of the buildings of Dieste.Through studies of ecclesiastic buildings, most notably St Peter’s College, Cardross and a series of
practical material based workshops cross-disciplinary teams of students from the three disciplines will study the cultural, architectural and practical aspects of materials. Working in teams, students will develop and construct large-scale experimental pieces that draw on the contemporary practise andnew technologies in concrete, glass and textiles.
