The Wood Museum

  • Ioana Olariu

This is a selection of pages from my 3rd-year portfolio, casing 2 projects that deeply explore aspects of adaptability, mobility, and efficiency in building with wood. Project 1 involved creating a small-scale architectural intervention within the Barbican Estate, aiming to challenge conventional notions of public and private spaces, emphasizing resource-sharing with the surrounding estate. Project 2 required the design of a mixed-use development near the Barbican. This design was to feature a blend of public and private spaces, with a focus on understanding and defining the thresholds between these spaces. Sustainability was a critical consideration.
