My final thesis project explored the idea of ‘civic’ within architecture and specifically how the reworking of part of an existing building can provide a public space with a civic atmosphere that can contribute within the urban framework of the city. Much of the development took inspiration from early modernist works in Vienna by architects such as Wagner and Loos, with specific attention on the tuning of atmosphere through design and materials.  

My name is Leigh Davies and I am currently completing the final year of the RIBA Part II MArch at BCU.
I have always had a passion for architecture and design, and I am particularly interested in the reworking of existing architecture and retrofitting, providing new uses to existing spaces.
