Friday 20th 10:00am – Sunday 22nd January 2023 4:00pm

God's House Tower, Town Quay Road, Southampton, SO14 2NY

‘a space’ arts and God’s House Tower present an exciting exhibition from Southampton design collective, Studio B.A.D Architects, as they launched an innovative 2023 programme.

‘Architecture Through a Shared Collaborative Process’ celebrated four years of working collaboratively and highlighted the process and potential in working collectively to achieve inclusion and equality. 

The possibility that architecture can be developed through shared collaboration was an ambition and lived experience for Architects Studio B.A.D, based here in Southampton. The practice ethos was to collaborate with clients, designers, architects, artists and academics to bring a range of voices and perspectives to enrich their projects.

The process was inclusive; all collaborators were equal.

The practice worked with community groups through a process of listening initiated at community consultation workshops to develop shared visions and goals with the client body. The practice developed proposals with clients that were about the long-term sustainability of the community, with the architectural practice as partners in this relationship.

This exhibition ran from Friday 20th January to Sunday 22nd January 2023 at God’s House Tower.
