Four Characters for Newtongrange

Part 1 Project 2017

The project deals with the Scottish town of Newtongrange, an ex-mining village. By investigating the totemic potential of previous architectures in the vicinity, the project proposes a new architectural language (expressed through four small libraries/archives) that is deeply connected to the site’s past. The project embraces the theatricality of Newtongrange’s architectures and hints towards alternative futures by learning from the site’s material, cultural and socio-political histories.
