"Spatial design is hugely important as it bridges many disciplines and connects together different aspects of contemporary experience. LCC’s BA (Hons) Spatial Design course is therefore rich in possibilities and can equip you for a wide range of activities and professions." Charles Holland, Ordinary Architecture.
Collaborative Project – Designing for the Senses: RNIB (Royal National Institute for Blind People) redesign
Second year students engaged with the RNIB (Royal National Institute for Blind People) to redesign their lobby and waiting area, in order to make it more appealing to the senses, more inclusive for disabled users and more in line with RNIB’s brand communication.
This video is one of the group responses to the brief, documenting their design process.
After the Fire: Re-imagining the Cuming Museum is a live project to be co-designed by LCC and Cuming Museum staff and year 2 students from BA (Hons) Design Cultures and BA (Hons) Spatial Design. The aim is to support our industry partner the Cuming Museum, following a fire which seriously damaged its buildings and resulted in the closure of the museum to the public for the foreseeable future. Reduced government spending, radical regeneration plans and complex local politics have contributed to uncertainty regarding the museum’s prospects, the future of its collections and its role within the local area.
Working together in the creation of a project brief that aims to offer tangible benefits and support to the Cuming Museum, staff and students will design and curate an exhibition and related events in order to stimulate public debate about the future of the institution. By working with a range of museum staff, stakeholders and community groups students will develop useful transferable skills for employment and lifelong learning. The experience of collaboration, knowledge sharing and dissemination will help students to understand the challenges and benefits of real-world socially engaged projects.
Monday 14th of October, we took the BA (Hons) Spatial Design students at LCC on a sketching trip to Greenwich. We started our journey at Embankment where we took a boat to take us to Greenwich, then our first stop was the Cutty Sark, followed by Greenwich market and through the park to the Royal Observatory and the fabulous view of London. Students learned to draw time, movement and scale, the rain waited nicely until we got home and everyone had a wonderful time. A great way to start the week!
The Spatial Communication programme degree show private view took place on Tuesday 11th June. The projects on display were fantastic and students were highly praised for the quality of the work and use of creative curation and display solutions. Below are a few images from students across the programme.
