The semester involved the development of two interlinking projects, a precedent study and the proposal for a new shed for Shatwell Farm in Somerset, UK. The studio considered the shed primarily as an expression of structure; the modulation and organisation of space is defined between the members of the structure, to form a frame. Case studies of contemporary framed buildings were transformed into new structures, via an exercise of frame translations. A new relationship to the ground was found, and new room sequences emerged.
The space became a place of storage and archive of food and knowledge, with asingle long table placed in response to the direction of the structural frame.
