Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, the architects who created Plymouth College of Arts crafts building and designers of the Plymouth School of Creative Arts (PSCA) building are celebrating 40 years in practice, and 20 years in London with an event at London’s Southbank Centre Undercroft on 4 December, where Plymouth College of Art Principal Andrew Brewerton will speak, and work co-created by students from the college's Digital Media Production degree and PSCA will be on display.
As part of a week-long festival of events, Feilden Clegg Bradley have invited their art school clients to create a reflective installation at London's Southbank Centre Undercroft, which will be accompanied by an evening of talks and discussion in response to the spaces they have created, as well as the surrounding architecture of the Southbank, an area famed for it's "unofficial" skate park, which has been a destination for London's skateboarders since the 70s.
Speakers will include the artist Bob and Roberta Smith, the Co-Director of the Cultural Learning Alliance Samantha Cairns, and Plymouth College of Art Principal Andrew Brewerton.
The installations will include work by Plymouth College of Art and Plymouth School of Creative Arts, Manchester School of Art, Chelsea School of Art (UAL), Bedales School and Long Live Southbank. Work from the college will focus on our "proposition" campaign, a campaign that focuses on people and activism. Read more about the campaign here, and add your own proposition to our wall here.
Feilden Clegg Bradley is an architectural and urban design practice with an international reputation for design quality, for pioneering environmental expertise and a progressive architectural approach.
Their striking designs for the college’s impressive crafts building (completed in 2014) created a bold architectural statement with industrial black metal cladding, large glass windows and high ceilings, providing space for the college’s Fab Lab, textiles workshops, glass, ceramics and jewellery studios.
Feilden Clegg Bradley also designed Plymouth School of Creative Arts - affectionately known as the Red House. The build for the 4 - 16 all-through free school founded in 2013 by Plymouth College of Art was completed in 2015. Feilden Clegg Bradley's aim was to provide a creative educational habitat that would be a space for making things - making ideas, technology and art.
