“Tactile Knowledge: Identities through Craftsmanship”
Across centuries, people’s habits and traditions have been shaping the path to define a culture’s identity. The importance of preserving these habits, particularly through craftsmanship, has become central to the development of this thesis. The project investigates the necessity of preserving craftsmanship within the contemporary scenario, with a specific focus on crafts that reflect the identity of London’s inhabitants. Finally, the thesis proposes a scheme which would enhance the site’s historical value by augmenting its potential, and ultimately, protecting it from its decay.
