coop coast

coop coast is a design & research unit within the graduate diploma school of CSA. Over the course of the academic year 2010/11 the studio is investigating the political, socioeconomic and spatial realities of coastal towns, both in Kent and across the English Channel. Oscillating between macro and micro scales, between urban and rural, temporal and typological conditions, the studio embraces strategic and activist design practices alike and explores the potential for cooperative action within the realms of regional design, programmatic urbanism and performative architecture. studio | Pauline Harris, Alasdair McNab, Joao Neves, Sarjay Patel, Benjamin Reay, Sara Resende, Migle Saltynite, Richard Saunders, Rhea Shepherd, Lawrence Sherwood, Hannah Wyatt tutor | Gabor Stark blog |
