'Visually beautiful'


COMMENDATION JESSAM AL-JAWAD THE BARTLETT SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE Angel Courthouse Tutor: Brendan Woods This dissertation accompanies a design proposal for Angel Courthouse, serving as a theoretical underpinning to the design process undertaken over the course of the final year. It explores the interpenetrating relationship of body and space, concentrating on the psychological effects that result from this dialectic. The processes explored in this thesis were brought to bear on the design proposal for a courthouse on the site of the disused London Underground station at City Road. The complex relationship between 'body' and 'space' is captured in one site: visible and invisible structures, freedom and confinement, the individual and society and the 'spaces' of psychological interior and physical exterior.
