50_Bryce Bessell: The Revival

Bryce Bessell

About myself: University of South Australia, Final year (recent graduate)

Quality in design for me exists in addressing all projects at all levels of scale, ranging from the design of the macro environment, down to the detailing of the micro whilst simultaneously designing with a direct understating of the client’s requirements and expectations. The ability to positively impact and make both individuals and communities lives better through the creative application of skill in order to design bespoke architectural forms in response to specific functions is what drives my passion for design and will be an integral principle throughout my career.

Name of your project: The Revival

Statement/concept about your project:

A proposal that seeks to rebel against societies ever evolving technologies and machinery, through the revival of artisan trade skills of which are slowly dissipating with the elderly who possess them. The programme attempts to diminish the current divisions in society that exist between workplace, living and leisure space in order to create a socialist environment. The Artisan Trade School will not only be a centre for education but a place for the younger generations to learn their craft, even as such a notion of growing of age.The use of technology of today will be guided to record the learning of skills occurring and stored on media devices within a cinematic library for future generations to explore and use the potential each skill set with holds. The process of recording observational learning and then archiving and distributing it attempts to blue the boundaries between the analogue and digital worlds, much like the skills of which each generation possess today. Working the two simultaneously to create an outcome that improves learning, saving of dying skills and whilst creating an inclusive environment that provides accommodation in exchange for knowledge.
