We are thrilled to announce that Daniel Orford has won the RIBA East Midlands Student Awards for his Master of Architecture project titled ‘Hedonistic Pleasurescape’ in Blackpool. He will receive the award on the 27th of April at the RIBA Awards!
This project explores the hedonistic environments, which are prevalent at the edge between the physical and natural. In understanding the complexity of spatial augmentation in operation we can begin to re-establish and create a landscape that celebrates hedonism and the carnivalesque within society. This project explores the British seaside as a place of leisure and frivolity, allowing people to escape from the everyday normality. These liminal spaces once at the heart of the society have become increasingly dissected and sanitised by the regulated modern culture.
