Furnishing the Landscape, Hooke Park, Dorset

Session 2: 28 June - 4 July 2013

The Maeda Twisting Concrete Workshop will take place at Hooke Park and is open to AA students and members.Building on a series of workshops experimenting with minimal surface fabric formworks, the Twisting Concrete Workshop will make further explorations on design applications of GRC (Glassfibre Reinforced Concrete) at the scale of landscape furniture. This will involve the making of site-specific furniture by taking sectional measurements directly from the landscape of Hooke Park. Session one will focus on the textural reading of the microtopography and geo-strata within a chosen area of Hooke Park, on which we will test various site-specific formworks. Session two will focus on the construction of finalised component pieces on site. Participants are encouraged to join for both sessions.
