ReGenerative Evolution

Diploma 16 continues its exploration of, and search for innovative and visionary design responses in Regenerative Architecture and urban formation addressing large scale infrastructure and extreme urbanization in our rapidly changing environment.

Working with the largest urban expansion in Europe, we continue our design investigations and experiments of East London with a new emphasis of the Thames Estuary (alternative premises and theses within the unit theme are open for discussion with final year students).

Can the design and materialization of architecture as both infrastructures and cities capacitate a positive ecological footprint exceeding the adverse environmental effects of construction and building operation? Is it also possible to do so without compromising design quality and sensibility and yet instill a sense of hope and optimism forged by new technology and human endeavour?
