The School of Architecture & Design welcomed Baroness Warwick, chair of the National Housing Federation, to the University this morning.

The occasion was the launch of a new guide to building houses for older people in Lincolnshire.

University of Lincoln students from Architecture, Health and Business had worked on the six-month project organised by Dr Primali Paranagamage with Nick Chambers from LACE housing.

They drew on a large body of existing literature to co-design a series of architectural solutions that would work specifically for Lincolnshire – a large, rural county with a high percentage of older people.

Baroness Warwick presented students with certificates recognising their participation in the project and then visited the University’s Computer Science Department to see at first hand their work with LACE around assisted living with robots.

MAIDE Student Creates Street Fashion Range

The project has used abandoned or waste objects to create print formers for the street printing and making of different garments. The object used have included an old car door, an ironing board, a hello kitty TV dinner tray, table tennis bat, skateboard, scrap wood and many other objects.

In April 2016 Senior Lecturer Dave Bramston, created print work using found objects in Xuzhou China which was experimental and led to the development of the street fashion project by Miyoung Jang.

In early July 2016 Miyoung Jang (MA International Design Enterprise) and Dave printed garments on the street in a small Chinese village in Guangzhou China. Locals printed and made garments on the street, followed by a street fashion show. The same project was conducted in the Sincil Bank area of Lincoln and again the local community printed garments on the street and items were made for a fashion show.

Miyoung Jang, Chantelle Ho and Steve Nash (both Fashion) and Dave worked on the project with local residents. Dora is a local resident who has connected with the project since July 2016 printing and making garments and other wares.

In September 2016 Miyoung Jang and Chantelle Ho and Dave went to Tsinghua University Beijing to conduct the project in China. The work involved students from the international foundation programme at Tsinghua and the 33 piece collection was shown at Beijing Design Week 2016.

The techniques and approaches to print have continued and the garments have been many.

Miyoung Jang graduated January 2017 with MA Distinction and continues to develop the practice. The association with communities both in China and in Lincoln has provided opportunity to work closely with both Lincoln City Council and Lincolnshire City Council. The aim now is to develop a range of street printed garments and to meet with parent companies of high street retailers to get what has become know as the WHITE GARAGE brand into a high street store. The project aims to be developed in other cities in the UK if successful in being retailed in Lincoln.

The project uses abandoned materials, brings communities together providing enterprise and entrepreneurial experiences and aims to generate some income for the community members. Being locally produced the garments have a low carbon footprint as they are not being shipped and those behind the WHITE GARAGE brand know exactly the ethics associated to all the garments.

It is hoped that a retailer will provide a rack for 10 garments that are locally produced each week from different found objects. This will show the retailer directly engaging with the communities, will provide community income and will bring an increased number of local residents into the store.

The hotshot this morning is to prepare documentation for sending to London to a recognised parent company of many high street stores. A second photo shoot will probably take place and all those involved will be asked to join a panel to decide on the most appropriate photographs to send to London. The brand is street and edgy and so this was the art direction for the photoshoot.

Good Luck to Dave Bramston & Miyoung Jang!
