In this podcast Laura Evans and Matt Wells interview William Burgess and Stephen Davies of 31/44 In the intro I mention our new books project. If you want to support us by pre-ordering copies of our first books please visit the crowdfunding site here Will is well known to us in Kingston as a studio tutor in third year, where he runs a unit with Kate Micklin also of 31/44. The work of the unit is a good way to understand some of the interests of 31/44 as a practice. There is a careful approach to understanding and researching context, and using this to inform their projects. This contextual read is not one grounded in a literal formal or material transposition, but in a sensibility which allows contextual work stand in sympathy both with its own time, and the histories of the sites they work on. As such their works are to an extent a distillation and a refinement of particular observations, a retelling of a story of how the city has been made. --------- Credits: Register is the Research Centre in the Department of Architecture & Landscape at the Kingston School of Art, Kingston University London Head of Department: Mary Johnson Producer: Laura Evans / Andrew Clancy Interviewer: Laura Evans / Matt Wells Editor: Andrew Clancy Music: Poddington Bear - Rainbow Architecture
