t-sa FORUM Vol. 5 : Refurbishment
Date: Friday 5 June 2015
Venue: AA Bookshop
This limited edition volume documents the work of Takero Shimazaki’s visiting school t-sa forum x AA.
At t-sa, refurbishment projects of existing structures and places are continually undertaken which lead to questions of why and how we 'refurbish' something and indeed why do we refurbish rather than rebuild; Why do we refurbish? Why is it so common in the UK? What are the stories worth preserving through refurbishment? How much do we wipe away?
t-sa forum 2014 explored why and how refurbishment is executed by investigating 3 case studies; Osterley House, The Attendant and The White Cube Bermondsey.
The research was carried out through photography, text, drawing and printing with accompanying workshops on each new technique. t-sa forum approached the research as a design process in a research studio.
