Materials in concert with their context.
Jonathan Tuckey Design explores the cultural, social and emotional connections formed with buildings over time. The practice has become expert in transforming existing structures, through adaptive reuse of built fabric, and pioneering sustainable construction methods. They produce buildings that are rooted in their environment, layering modern interventions in a sensitive and tactile approach to architecture that aims to elevate historic materials and define contemporary spaces for living, working and learning.
In this lecture Jonathan Tuckey will discuss his studios ethos and examples from their portfolio where materiality has been critical in anchoring projects within a diverse array of landscapes. From transforming a cod liver oil factory into a cultural venue in the arctic circle, to completing a new school theatre in rural England, sensitive material choices have always been at the forefront of the practices methodology.
