This is an asset for the Street Project that is to be attached on to my butchers shop.

Building design ‘The Street’

As part of The Street project for Craft and Media Tech 2  we were given the task to design a building that could be found on a typical high street. This building should be no more than 5.5 meters in width and no more than 3 storeys high.

I decided to design a butcher’s shop that would have been seen of a 1960’s English  high street, the building itself would have been constructed in the early Victorian period.

Other Practitioners ‘The Street’. Claude Parent

Claude Parent’s design for the Venice Biennale 1970.

The style of architecture seen in Claude Parent and Paul Virilio’s designs are very angular and futuristic looking, even though they date from the 1960’s. Some of his work must have inspired the building design used in several science fiction movies from the 1970’s through to the 1990’s.

Other practitioners ‘The Street’

Whilst looking for architectural artists and illustrators, i stumbled upon a digitized version of a architecture journal ‘ The Canadian Architect and Builder (CAB)’ which was published in Canada between 1888 and 1908. There are some great and useful sketches, photos and technical drawings that are well worth a look at.
