Agriculture College Interior

AGRICULTURE COLLEGE

Biddenfield College was a conceptual design project Janna did back in 2013 for her Part 2 in Architecture, based around the need for a re-education in farming and sustainable land management.  The conceptual college was to be situated near Southampton, and would provide a range of agricultural courses up to degree level.  The design works to integrate land, food, fuel and space, so linking the indoor and outdoor spaces was crucial.  The design was based around a series of courtyards and gardens, using the buildings to enclose and create spaces.  Cutting at an angle through the heart of the college is the 'Food Hall', which is a modern take on a grand medieval thatched hall, using a scissor -strut roundwood timber frame and strawbale walls.
