Atmospheric Pressures

Braelyn Hamill, Interior Design

Winner: Scott Brownrigg Design Award for Inclusive Spaces

This project re-thinks the ecosystem of London Underground. How can we harness latent conditions within the London Underground to cultivate cleaner, more enjoyable environments throughout the network? This project proposes using air pushed in front of trains as a low heat, pressurised braking system. Resulting air is then diverted to air filtering tiles, and passive groundwater based systems.


 Judge’s comment:
“Why do we have to accept that the tube is a hot, sweaty, smelly environment? This idea reinvents the space and the service, focusing on different scales from a water bottle to the architectural level.”
Laurence Orsini, Scott Brownrigg
