Overseen by Professor Alan Dunlop, former Prospect editor Penny Lewis and Simon Leeman the class were tasked with meeting ‘The Challenge of the Ordinary’ by shifting their attention away from fanciful work dreaming up elegant monasteries, theatres or wineyards and focusing instead upon everyday architecture such as supermarkets, factories and housing whilst resolving challenges relating to transportation and landscaping.
