STORE Summer Schools are collaborative two-week courses in architecture, art and design. Each year, the programme brings students together to design and construct ambitious and experimental design and construction projects, culminating in large-scale installations and inspiring public events.

Now in its seventh year, the Warsaw Summer School will team up with the Osiedle Jazdow community. The Osiedle Jazdow community is a dynamic local collective based in a colony of twenty-seven wooden huts which were built in 1945 to provide temporary housing for those responsible for rebuilding the city. Having fulfilled their temporary purpose, the huts themselves have now become an integral part of the fabric of Warsaw and a symbol of urban renewal.

During the duration of the course, The Warsaw Sumer School will behave as a temporary extension of the Osiedle Jazdow community. This will involve eating together, watching film screenings and attending public lectures, integrating with and learning from local artists and craftspeople and working collaboratively to design and build a exciting new addition to the historic Jazdow colony.

Our summer schools aim to engage both participants and the wider public in exciting and innovative ways. Over the past seven years, our students have built a rooftop pleasure garden, built and choreographed an open air stage, and transformed a public square into a living room for a night.

Our summer schools are each led by experienced architects, artists and designers teaching at leading universities. The breadth of expertise they provide allows us to offer a programme which considers architecture in terms of urbanism, performance and craft while giving students the chance to test their ideas in the public realm.

As part of a diverse, energetic and creative group, students are guided by our tutors through hands-on, design processes driven by physical prototyping and testing. They gain experience in effective collaboration while also getting the chance to develop their confidence and leadership skills. Regular design critiques, photography and portfolio tutorials will provide valuable opportunities for critical reflection on their work, both as a team and as individuals.

Who can apply

This course is open to students between the ages of 15-25 with varying levels of experience. It will be of particular benefit to students interested in studying architecture, design or art at university level but also those currently enrolled in further education. Equally the course will provide an introduction to ambitious beginners with no design background.

STORE’s ethos of design through making ensures accessibility to those without extensive experience. Each and every student will be challenged imaginatively and creatively by set themes and by the scale of activities undertaken.

Further Info

Accommodation is not included in the course fees. However, we would be very happy to recommend somewhere suitable to stay for all students who are not based in Warsaw.

For students wishing to enquire about recommended accommodation for the Warsaw Summer School, please email school@storeprojects.org for further details.

Cost

£400 – this includes all materials, equipment and a digital copy of the course documentation. Travel and accommodation are not included. Meals are not provided, but refreshments will be available throughout the day.

STORE Summer Schools are collaborative two week workshops in architecture, art and design. Each year, we bring students together on experimental design and construction projects to create large scale installations and ambitious public performances.

Last year, the inaugural Athens Summer School was a two week workshop focussed on challenging the notion of the ‘plateia’, or public square, in contemporary Athens. Together in our group of 10 students and tutors, we created a number of bespoke concrete fragments which were the base for our own ‘micro plateia’. The process was inspired by the pioneering work of Dimitris Pikionis – specifically his ascent to the Acropolis, which is a assemblage, or collage of bricks, tiles and other fragmented pieces, carefully inlaid into the pathways.

This year, we are setting out with the bold intention of crafting a new public performance space in Votanikos, Athens. We will work closely with two new partners, Scrap Coop, who will offer us their large workshop space and a local dance school, who will ‘activate’ our new space with a site-specific performance at the end of the workshop.

Throughout the ten day intensive workshop, we will hold regular design critiques, as well as photography and portfolio tutorials, offering valuable opportunities for critical reflection on the work both of the collective design team and individual work input. It is our intention that students should leave the Summer School with the capacity to independently initiate and develop socially engaged design projects.

Who should attend

This course is open to students of all ages and with varying levels of experience. It will be of particular benefit to students interested in studying art, architecture or design at university level but also those currently enrolled in further education.

STORE’s ethos of design through making ensures accessibility to those without extensive experience. Each and every student will be challenged imaginatively and creatively by set themes and by the scale of activities undertaken.

General arrangements

The school will run from 9:30am to 5pm every day from Monday 22nd to the following Wednesday 31st July, with an evening event on the final day (31st July). Students are expected to provide their own lunch and to arrange their own transportation to and from the workshop site, at Scrap Coop in Votanikos.

We will provide all general workshop/construction materials, but students should bring a sketchbook and drawing materials.

Tessa Silva-Dawson

Back by popular demand – The workshop will go through the process of extracting the protein from milk to form a natural alternative to plastic, in order to produce small handcrafted objects. The Protein project seeks to re-envision milk as a resourceful and valuable raw material, utilising waste milk from the dairy industry. As we know, the 20th century facilitated the worldwide manufacture of synthetic plastics, providing us with a cheap and easily accessible material. However, the economic benefits of designing with artificial plastics no longer weighs up against environmental drawbacks.

This natural milk plastic is composed of the proteins (otherwise known as casein) extracted from skimmed milk, which when processed appropriately forms a hard mass. Casein plastic was produced commercially during the early 1900’s in the UK, however faded from use due to the development of polymers derived from oil. In this workshop we will adapt the production techniques of the past to influence the future of making. Pigments will be used with the milk to produce a range of colours and effects, and hand shape small pieces with the clay-like material, which will harden overnight. The skimmed milk will be provided by Hook & Son organic farm in Sussex.

Tessa Silva-Dawson is a process-lead designer maker based in London, graduated from the MA Design Products course at the Royal College of Art. Projects are born from an ongoing fascination in our material culture, throughout the past, present, and into the future. The work is often intended as a catalyst for discourse – shifting perceptions of the material world and stimulating the creative exploration of the weird and wonderful resources available. Her ongoing project, Protein, is an investigation into the use of milk proteins as a natural material for the handcrafted production of objects.

This workshop is open to a maximum of 10 participants (age 12+). Attendance at the workshop costs £40 (£30 students) with all proceeds supporting the SCHOOL SCHOOL after school club for the local state school students.

Dimitris Pikionis, the Greek architect, constructed the ascent and landscaping to the Acropolis in the 1950’s. His method involved collecting debris from numerous surrounding buildings and repurposing them into a walkway. This gathering, collecting and reconstructing is a common theme in the contemporary archeological space that is modern Athens. Due to a dynamic history Athens has evolved into an archipelago of differing stages of inhabitation, yet the public life has remained the same. The Plateia is always central to the life in the city.

Taking Pikionis’ unique, quintessentially Greek methodology students proposed a micro Plateia to be constructed in the city of Athens.

The Plateia hosted a public event which was co-curated with members of the surrounding community in Kipseli.

ABOUT

STORE is a London-based association of artists, architects and designers composed of three core elements: an educational programme of art and architecture courses, wide-ranging public events and exhibitions, and a socially engaged design practice.

Operating from spaces across London, STORE aims to facilitate and drive local change within the urban environment. Since its formation in 2011, a group has developed to form an association whose output and ethos reflects the values and talents of its members.

SWIMMERS

Swimmers is a cross disciplinary – though primarily literary – project consisting of regular events and a series of print pamphlets, combining contemporary literature and original artwork. The series was founded by Store associates in 2014 and has always constituted a conversation between writing and visual practice, learning important lessons in hybridity, dynamism and experimentation from visual art institutions and practitioners. Seeking to hold attention in relation to the tactile and surprising object, the pamphlet series has been an exploration in value, exchange and community.

In its original iteration, Swimmers presented a series of events based on ‘City Narratives’ and included poetry readings, talks, performance, and film screenings. In 2016, designer/artist Kevin Green and writer/editor Catherine Hamilton reconceived Swimmers as a series of limited run pamphlets and events, bringing together their respective disciplines and drawing on relationships built through Store’s previous activities and the original Swimmers series. Past and current editors include:

Declan Ryan, Eleanor Griffiths, Maria Dimitrova, Ralf Webb, and Will Harris.
