Picking up the Pieces

Colin Priest from Studio Columba is putting together a show of recent academic enquiries by students on the areas around Hackney Wick. 'The exposition showcases the coincidental diversity of thought and endeavor by the next generation of architects, designers and writers in time for the London Architecture Festival 2012'.

As part of the show we will be holding a Wick Session entitled "Picking Up The Pieces" which will bring together makers and cultural producers from the Hackney Wick area who explore issues around, recycling, reuse, and the collective production of public situations. The session alongside the academic exposition Between the A12 and Lea River, will feature projects and practitioners which draw from the physical, cultural and creative resources of Hackney Wick and its proximity to produce inventive solutions. Highlighting ways of working and thinking which encourage a hands on and bottom up approach to making with results ranging from stools to temporary cultural spaces and everything in between. Speakers will give a short 5 minute introduction to their work followed by an open discussion.

Full list of speakers to be confirmed shortly
