AboutStudio in the Woods, founded by Piers Taylor of Mitchell Taylor Workshop, is a unique architectural workshop in which students learn and test ideas through designing and building occupiable structures at 1:1 scale.
Over the course of a long weekend each summer, the students use recently felled trees that are milled into required sections as a form of âconstructed analysis' of a place.
Now in its fifth year, Studio in the Woods has developed a cult following with students seeking ways to work with award-winning architects and teachers from the University of Cambridge and the Architectural Association, such as Peter Clegg, Ted Cullinan, Meredith Bowles, Charley Brentnall, Kate Darby and Gianni Botsford.
There is a frenetic and intense energy generated by the process of physical making in a short timescale, and a sublime beauty to the projects. This exhibition presents work from the last five years, including a purpose-made piece for this exhibition.
This exhibition is kindly supported by Carpenter Oak & Woodland.
We are currently looking for volunteers who are interested in invigilating during this exhibition to get in touch. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.
