rosetta reset 

Rosetta Reset is an ongoing research project that explores the evolvement of language and the influence of emoji-based communication on society. By translating the original text of the Rosetta Stone into emoji’s we draw parallels to ancient image-based languages to speculate about future modes of communicating.  more info

flash back city - riyadh

the bakerloos x minhaj

The Flash-back city workshop series explores the power of collaboration, and collective imagination. Through a gamified interface participants collectively draw, explore and develop an urban fabric based on crowdsourced associations and memories - creating large scale propositional, collaborative drawings through the collation of personal memories of a city or culture. This workshop was commissioned by Minhaj for Al Faisal University and was tailored to the unique historic context of Old Riyadh and Ad Diriyah. more info

social seating

the bakerloos x Store Projects

This installation commissioned by Store Projects explored the use of pool noodles to construct a social seating landscape for Clapton Girl’s Academy. The design of the structure was produced using grasshopper to maximise efficiency and the construction took the form of a workshop with sixth form students at the school. First a net was woven using cable ties, pool noodles of set lengths and colours were then carefully inserted and secured according to a predetermined base plan. more info

 

RIBA late Live Drawing Marathon

The Bakerloos were invited to participate in a live drawing marathon as part of RIBA Late: Reaching peak Pastiche, an event that explored questions around neo georgian architecture. For the drawing marathon we developed a strategic card game that uses elements of classical architecture to construct facades drawn from unconventional elements. more info

barbicanisms

The Barbican is the identity-establishing protagonist of Culture Mile – the estate imposes itself inescapably on its surroundings. Iconic snippets of the interior worlds – following the idea of bringing the ‘inside out’ – serve as mobile, multifunctional incubators: what about a living room concert along Beech Street, playing from a mobile penthouse loggia raft? What about turning a Lauderdale Tower balcony into a theatre stage, or taking an outdoor cooking class in a displaced Barbican kitchen in Speed Garden? The Barbicanisms orchestrate the existing, but underused public spaces of Culture Mile in novel ways, reintroducing the domestic scale into the urban. more info

colvestone

A collective drawing experience at Colvestone Primary School, Dalston. Switching scales, functions and commands, the pupils created a back-up city based on their memories creating an unique urban proposal based on the river Thames. The drawing process trains the ability to look out for emerging spaces and opportunities, making quick design decisions on the fly by reacting to each other, considering urban layers such as transport, housing and infrastructure. more info

Portable portico

The Portable Portico was a performative installation which was the result of a two week summer school at the Bartlett School of Architecture, taught by The Bakerloos in collaboration with Matt Lucraft.  Students were allocated a 1 x 1m 'patch' of the Classicistic Portico in UCL's main quad. After a series of survey, scale drawing and modelling exercises the students designed and fabricated wearable reinterpretations of their patches. The summer school culminated in a parade back to the portico. More info

A collective, water-themed drawing experience with the Summer School Extended at the Bartlett School of Architecture. Switching scales, functions and commands, the students created a back-up city around the river Thames based on their memories – creating an unique urban proposal. The drawing process trains the ability to look out for emerging spaces and opportunities, making quick design decisions on the fly by reacting to each other, considering urban layers such as transport, housing and infrastructure. more info
