People in Process: erect architecture

erect architecture is an award-winning architectural practice led by Barbara Kaucky and Susanne Tutsch. They have developed an expertise in the fields of user-centred architecture for leisure, culture, education, work and play.

As a practice erect architecture treasure the cross-fertilisation and innovation that comes from creative collaborations and teamwork. They seek new and creative ways of working with other disciplines as well as users and stakeholders.
erect architecture’s projects are firmly routed within their communities, and their community engagement takes many different formats, which is developed in response to project specifics. The work with users often serves to establish a brief and to teach skills. It aims to generate involvement and always attempts to increase the sense of ownership amongst different user groups.

As part of ‘People in Process‘ erect architecture will be exhibiting a project which they designed alongside the community interest groups in Brixton, Dexter Road Adventure Playground, and showing how the engagement process influenced the design outcome.

Barbara Kaucky will also be talking more about the project and about erect architecture’s working processes at ‘People in Process – An Evening with the Artists‘, tickets are available here.
