2015 graduates: Blueprint’s ones to watch

Polina Pencheva
University of Sheffield
Architecture

Polina Pencheva

Pencheva made a remarkably formally sophisticated scheme to combine a variety of functions and uses at the St Andrew's Dock Assembly. Overall the ambition of the studio was laudable, rooted in the real, hoping for the best, reminding us that architecture belongs to all of us, designer and user alike, and architects clearly benefit from remembering that.

Chan took a highly sculptural route fulfilling the brief of using material and textiles that could 'inform or inspire choreography' and in this case constrict, control and proscribe movement for specific, but not pre-ordained results. JT

This powerful image used text about the life and work of Bauhaus designer Lázló Moholy-Nagy, and was designed as an introduction page to the constructivism and simplicity of Moholy-Nagy's work. JT

Simple and clever - warming up muscles and a squash ball pre-play combine in Warm-Up.

Peter Howes

The ball is placed inside the compartment where it is compressed and then moved back and forward by leg power.

It all saves wasting valuable, and these days expensive, on-court time. JT

Aaron Ho
Royal College of Art
Architecture

With the Church of England being one of the largest landowners in the UK, Aaron Ho asked, what if it was to provide housing, and how would it do it? What would its architecture look like? Initiated by the Diocese of London and the Hackney parish of St John, the project speculates on a self-build housing community.

Aaron Ho

In Ho's world, housing would be allocated through self-build plot bidding, recommendations of local charities and housing associations, parish appointments and charity raffle-ticket draws. In a festival over the summer, construction would commence for the selected tenants, who would all join together in building their own homes. Perhaps a bit idealist, but wouldn't it be nice if every project had this spirit? CSH
