Collingwood's Vessel

The final project of my undergraduate work involved the treatment of dementia in a home for the elderly through the use of memory pathways. A home for retired trawlermen used a system of allegorical architectures to evoke memories while a system of heated surfaces and components allowed them to navigate the space through touch, the sense least eroded by age. The project won the 2005 RIBA Bronze medal as the best undergraduate design project in the UK and affiliated countries.
