Hooke Park Build VS


An intensive short program whose participants assist in the physical production of experimental wood architecture at the AA’s Hooke Park campus

In 2016 I took over the running of the Hooke Park Build (previously SummerBuild) AA Visiting School program with Dorset based craftsman Jack Draper. The program is an annual 4-week intensive in which participants work on active projects alongside full time MArch students. Within this condensed timeframe participants were offered a mini D+M program, exposed to all aspects of timber building – from forestry operations, to traditional building methods, to innovative robotic fabrication.
