The Institute of Making Homes

Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent

6th Year Thesis Project

The Institute of Making Homes provides a radical solution to the housing crisis. Building upon and rooting within the making culture and strong community spirit of the people and place of Burslem. Driving innovation, encouraging collaboration and facilitating community involvement in the research and testing of improved strategies and methodologies for the design, manufacture and construction of homes. Reconnecting the town through the reintegration of redundant pottery sites, and engaging the community in their redevelopment. The institute connects into and repairs an existing urban block adjacent to the town centre, considering architecture as layers of change and reuse.
