A House for DAD

The DAD Urban Room

Culture & Artists-led Urbanism in Dover

Three weeks into the autumn semester, UCA’s Master of Architecture students presented their first design project of the year, delivered in close collaboration with DAD. The brief asked students to design ‘A House for DAD’ – a building that combines the provision of artist studios, communal workshop and exhibition spaces with a place for exchange, debate and community engagement.

Dover Arts Development is delighted with the research, vision and creative thinking that went into the ‘House for DAD’ project led by Gabor Stark and his team, for this year’s Master of Architecture students at UCA Canterbury. The students’ attention on DAD and what it might need in its ’house’ comes at a perfect time as DAD is moving into a more multi-voiced organisational structure led & shaped with a new generation of artists.
