Program Overview: 

You may want to consider joining us in Oxford, England this summer for a two-week ‘live project’ design collaboration that will bring together the design and construction skills of architecture students from Oxford Brookes University UK and Montana State University.  No construction experience is necessary and all undergraduate and graduate students in the school of architecture are eligible.  The design/build collaboration will also coincide with the Live Project Pedagogy Symposium to be held at Oxford Brookes University from May 24th-26th.  For more information on the Live Projects Pedagogy Symposium, please visit:


Proposed Project Description

In response to the London Festival of Architecture’s theme for 2012 – The Playful City – students from Oxford Brookes University and Montana State University are invited to design a Playful Pavilion; an interactive and ‘playful’ installation intended to engage the public in exploring ideas in architecture and provide a catalyst for public interaction and spatial choreography.  The pavilion will be featured as part of the Oxford School of Architecture Design Show in May and installed at Chetwoods Architects in Clerkenwell for the London Festival of Architecture from June 23rd thru July 8th.
