This week EUSAS welcomes Lee Ivett from Baxendale.
“We value ideas and facilitate public agency in the re-imagining of place through collaboration, active making and thoughtful analysis. We believe that conceiving ideas, prototyping interventions and creating local capacity to enact sustainable change can be an organic and responsive process that brings communities together to work towards common goals.”
Baxendale has projects at a variety of scales and duration, from immediate and improvised interventions to the establishment of more permanent pieces. They focus on multidisciplinary collaboration by engaging and inspiring both individuals and communities in a participatory and sustainable way. As well as identifying and using reclaimed material in creative ways, Baxendale also creates projects that are embedded within social, economic, cultural and physical contexts.
A Glasgow based practice, Baxendale has projects in architecture, art, design and education. Their work has been recognized internationally for its innovation, impact and quality. They have exhibited, produced and presented work in Poland, Hungary, Nuremburg, Los Angeles, Venice, Ljubljana and throughout the UK and the practice was selected for inclusion in the recent publication New Architects 3 – the definitive survey of the best British architects to have set up practice since 2005. Baxendale has also written for the Architectural Review, Architects Journal, the RIBA Journal, Metropolis and within academic publications.
After the lecture, join us at our sponsor bar Pilgrim for a drink and to continue the conversations from the lecture!
