In architecture and public life we now take certain typologies for granted; in terms of how they look, how they operate and how they are used. We recognise a house as being different from a library and a leisure centre as being distinct from a farm.
During last year’s Architecture Fringe we examined the visual language of our civic infrastructure through a commissioned exhibition called New Typologies. For this year’s programme, through the commissioning of five emerging practices, we seek to explore how hybrid typology at personal and local level can be developed to address current and projected societal issues.
