BA (Hons) Architecture

Zhi Zhao

Studying in the ‘Continuity in Architecture’ Unit has been an incredibly enriching experience for me, introducing ideas such as that of the ‘City as Palimpsest’ which has informed my approach to design this year.  Research into the geological formation of my site on Tib Street unlocked an understanding of the area for me and led to an architectural proposal which in its formal expression aims to reinstate a lost historical urban grain to the street.  The introduction of a hybrid programme of glass making studios and thermal baths brings back an elemental connection with the land into the modern city.
