On January 30th GreenSCIES partner, Cullinan Studio, was pleased to host an online National Saturday Club Masterclass for the Nottingham Trent University Club of 13-16 year old students from the Nottingham area.
The masterclass drew on the cross-disciplinary and future-facing brief of the GreenSCIES project, which is looking at innovative ways of integrating green energy infrastructure in a dense urban setting.
The Club members were tasked with taking this brief and creating a ‘mollage’ (model + collage = mollage) exploring how distribution piping could playfully integrate into the street. There were some wonderful, creative interpretations; from an integrated community pizza oven to hanging gardens of edible greenery. One club member commented “I don’t think I’d ever thought that I would have a say in what’s being built around me, but today has made me realise I actually should have my say.”
