RCA Collaboration - Pipe Up

Over the past few months we have collaborated closely with a wonderful group of MA architecture students (ADS6), at the renowned university The Royal College of Arts, in London.

For this project the students took inspiration from the mid-thirteen century London; a time where water was undrinkable, and heath issues were dramatically high. Due to such problems the sanitary revolution finally arose.

Using ceramic as their material, the students designed and created several objects to beautifully story tell this historic problem. We assisted in the making of the focal pipe sculpture, using the skills of our great craftsman to perfect the form and structure of this design, resulting in a beautiful creation.

We are extremely thrilled to have been involved in the manufacturing process for this unique project, and we thoroughly enjoyed working with such an enthusiastic and talented group of students.

The collaboration 'Pipe Up' will be up for an amazing prize, where by the winning RCA students will have their final sculpture built in Vauxhall. We wish ADS6 great luck with finalising their work, and we look forward to potentially working together in the future.
