The #Flitched initiative

Startacus RSS

by Startacus Admin

A couple flitched of weeks ago, we highlighted the frankly quite awesome Canning Town Caravanserai initiative which is proving properly innovative in its’ approach to regeneration.
Well, the good news is that if design, architecture or ecology is your thing, you now can get involved and help to put your stamp on the Caravanserai thanks to its’ #Flitchedinitiative.

The project which launched just last week has an open call out for architects, designers and ecologists to work alongside structural engineers and to design a structure for the Caravanserai site using materials and components from their inventory of construction waste.
The structure itself, once built will be in essence a ‘workshop garden’ - an open plan workshop where it is hoped a whole host of making and horticultural activities will take place.

Submitted designs will all be evaluated and assessed on a range of criteria including how well makers’ needs have been considered in the space and what techniques have been used to integrate the natural environment with man made technology.

All design proposals must be submitted via the Flitched site where full details of the application process can be made. Entries must be made by 9 January 2013 and it is hoped that the winning project will be built in February 2013.

Interested? Well, if you happen to be in London next Monday (10th December), get yourself along to the Flitched networking event at 1 Naoroji Street, WC1X 0GB and get networking and planning...
