February 2013

October 2011, 6 week project


The Story Museum invited year one architecture and interior architecture students to design prototypical environments for storytelling. The projects utilised everyday and recycled materials and ranged from interactive shelves to hybrid chairs and were all presented to representatives from The Story Museum. The Story Museum's Cath Nightingale said: "They were asked to design seating for those listening to, and telling, stories." Story Museum co-director Tish Francis said: "The designs were fantastic – we were surprised and delighted. The quality was amazing." Continuing, "The Story Museum aims to surprise and delight – and we were thoroughly surprised and enormously delighted by the wit, imagination and enthusiasm which Oxford Brookes University first year architecture and interior architecture students brought to their debut assignment. They picked up the brief and ran with it, understanding our approach to story and storytelling and to the building itself."
