The physical patterns of PATTERNITY utilise the texture of the materials and forms they are made on to add an extra layer to their 2D shapes. Plus they have a sweet daily pattern section here : http://www.patternity.co.uk/
Great to see a number of exhibitors from the LINES show, which we organised two years ago, at the IMAGINE - Fictional Architecture and the Liberation of Ideas show in Bahrain. It’s on until the 30th of June if you’re in the area
We’re five architectural designers, members of a newly formed collaborative group called Ada, working with a composer Adam Donen, and we’ve been given a major square in the middle of London for a day. We are going to fuse architecture with music and performance, and create the first ever dramatic piece with a stage as the lead actor.
The Bloomsbury Fete will be filled with pieces of interactive architecture - there will be see-saws, slides and tables all of which will be used by around 3000 people that will be drawn to the festival. They will all be beautiful and functional, but also built very cunningly so that at lunchtime they can take part in the main performance of Europa. These apparently separate pieces will ‘subsume’ Europa as it happens.
Hugh McEwen, Catrina Stewart, Freddy Tuppen,Kevin Greenand Omar Ghazalare founding members of Ada, a Bloomsbury-based collective of professional artists and architectural designers who work together to create spectacles of forward-looking architecture. Ada believe that by combining individuals who are the best in their field from different disciplines, the most aesthetic and intellectually stimulating results can be achieved. Since early 2012 the collective has been working closely with local organisations to produce interactive architectural pieces.

Illustration What began as a sketch got slightly out of hand! I love doing drawings like this, this began as a little experiment in seeing how well I could combine some pen, colour and pencil work and ended up as this. I’m hoping to bring a lot more of this fun, lively abstraction to my work during third year and beyond.
