Department of Architecture & Landscape, Kingston School of Art
At Kingston we are interested in what it takes to make thoughtful work in the built environment today. We share belief in architecture and landscape as a continuum of cultural thinking and our studios marry exceptional students to leaders working in practice and in the academy, encompassing a diverse range of positions as befits the contemporary context of pluralistic practice. The work in our show demonstrates that a school does not need to get lost in esoterica or avoid the real practical issues at the heart of our discipline to produce beautiful and poetic work. Our ‘Register’ podcasts, recorded conversations with visitors to our Department, have reached 26,000 listeners since their launch a year ago.
