Studio 7 is a group of thirteen postgraduate student at SSoA. The studio is led by John Sampson.

The theme which Studio 7 is investigating this year is: Resilient Communities.
Set in the Lower Ouseburn Valley, close to Newcastle’s city centre, we aim to explore and create strategies for urban resilience. We will be working at two scales, at the urban scale we will develop Urban Design Frameworks, whilst designing individual projects that investigate the role of the individual (or the architect) within a community.

An extract from the brief is available from the M.Arch Handbook, on SSoA’s website.

“The aim of the studio is to research and develop strategies of community reliance through the proposition of new networks of locally closed ecological cycles, which offer an alternative to producing, consuming and living in the UK.”
