OF THE TIMES -
Dott 07 is a year of community projects, events and exhibitions
based in North East England that explore what life in a sustainable
region could be like and how design – in it’s widest
and not necessarily product based sense - can help us get there.
The Dott 07 Festival is an event which will bring together the results
of the projects and enable all the people involved to share experiences.

SHS BURRIDGE ARCHITECTS proposed 3 concepts for the festival which attempted
to embody and celebrate the ethos of Dott 07; trees, canopy + enclosure.
Trees: An urban forest of 200 trees
was proposed for it’s positive effect on the health &
well being for the habitants of the North East & the environment
as a whole and as a permanent record of Dott 07. On route to their
final home the trees were to spend 3 weeks at the Festival laid
out as an internal wood with clearings where the project would be
animated and discussed.
Canopy: Suspended coloured etfe cushions
provide an animated canopy to the festival space with exciting opportunities
for up lighting and projection.
Enclosure: A dramatic tented central space which provides orientation
and direct links to all outer project zones.
Floor Area: 2500 sq.m
