Unit 3 Thesis Project: Museum of the Environment
Director Pippa Nissen, Senior Associate Marie-Lise Oulmont and Associates Andrea Hickey and Kate Coghlan of Nissen Richards Studio are leading a new postgraduate teaching unit at London Metropolitan University. The unit challenged students to design a ‘Museum for Now’. Here is one of the responses to that challenge.
My Museum for Now is a Museum of the Environment which creates memories for the future. By exposing nature and its value and shifting sustainability and preservation perspectives, we explore anthropogenic paradigms within the reality of the city/urban landscape.
Engaging and reconnecting with local nature and landscapes. Enabling a collaborative path and creating a sense of belonging and shaping the future.
Imagining, thinking in order to change. Inspired by trees, which are elongated, robust and fragile – and how they observe the world around from their imperious vantage point.
