Today’s generation is more climate conscious than ever, but we’ve grown accustomed to having bigger, better, now. Train stations have become the new shopping meccas, hosting commuters on the continual grind.  Our lives are commercial art, every moment captured and commodified. The high-rise allows developers to capitalise on the connectivity of the iconic abandoned station. As we chase popularity through cycles of trends, humans produce themselves as a waste product. Our lives online are pixelated, obscuring the absence of true craftsmanship. The tower performs as a stage presenting the perfect backdrop – when the angle is right.

Project: Tracing Thresholds; Landscape Production

Tracing Thresholds: Landscape Production, by Kyle Stone

Tuti Island, located in the Nile River Basin, faces cultural insecurity due to urban development and a lack of dialogue among communities dependent on the water. The Cultural Thresholds brief aims to integrate stakeholders and their agendas to design interventions on the island. The Tuti Haddam Centre intervention plays a key role exploring building techniques and materials that respond to environmental challenges. By creating threshold conditions within the agricultural landscape, the intervention promotes recognition and preserve intergenerational knowledge tied to natural clay and palm. This strengthens cultural security, fostering dialogue between self and other.

The Architecture Today Student Prize is awarded to the best student project that tackles the challenge of adapting an existing building. This project looks at regenerating the Fleetwood Hospital, located 40 miles north of Blackpool, which was made redundant in 2009. The proposal introduces a new function and makes necessary adaptions to transform it into a community asset, whilst respecting the building’s values and improving the sustainability of the site.
