Charlotte Skene Catling
Charlotte Skene Catling calls her unique approach ‘geoarchaeology’, seeking to excavate meaning from context to develop architecture.
This method sees her taking observations of the composition of the earth, historical artefacts and the cultural landscapes of her commissions, which she uses to respond to her clients’ wishes in an original way. She is working on some housing projects, seeking to question the ‘underlying assumptions about the way groups live together’.
Projects include Flint House in Buckinghamshire, ‘extruded’ from the landscape in strata of flint and chalk with the appearance of a natural, geological form, winning RIBA’s House of the Year 2015.
