Challenge of the Ordinary Project
Design: Various Architecture Students
Location: Cuningar Loop, Glasgow East End
The Challenge of the Ordinary: Scott Sutherland MArch
“We saw a crematorium, a monastery-cum-brewery, a “cidery‟ in a tower, a bench, a theatre and an exploration of the caverns of Naples. We did not see a house, an office, a warehouse, a hospital or a supermarket. Where were the schemes pushing everyday architecture down exciting new paths?
Richard Waite, Juror: 3D Reid Student Prize 2010
I’m sending this because of your commitment to architectural education and interest in talented students. My MArch Unit at Scott Sutherland is just about to complete its 2 year study for the creation of a new settlement in the east end of Glasgow.
The work was set in motion by comments made by Richard Waite of the Architects Journal after the 3D Reid student prize in 2010. The unit set out a master-plan and development strategy for the Cuningar Loop, including ideas for transportation, housing and landscaping and were encouraged to explored the “ordinary” in architecture for their individual buildings.
“Ordinary” projects that the students raised to extraordinary levels. The students develop their projects through drawing, the unit is hand drawing and models only.
