In 2015, we joined forces with Architecture 00. Together, we enjoy collaborating in a shared environment where strategic, urban and social designers, architects, programmers and economists practice design beyond its traditional borders. 00 work with individuals, governments, corporations and communities to solve problems and anticipate change, and to design successful platforms and places. As a studio it aims to reach beyond the design of objects themselves to the social, economic and environmental systems behind them.
Terrell is an installation for University Hospital Bristol, funded by the charity Above and Beyond.
The project brief was to create a visual centrepiece for the atrium of a new ward block that absorbs sound from activity on the ground level of the atrium as well as shielding sightlines from upper floors. Our installation references the Terrell Rope Works, a family-run rope and twine business; the Terrells’ house used to sit on the hospital site.
