One of the most interesting learning spaces projects has been the recent summer works for Visual Merchandising course at JPS. The course was being taught at Elephant & Castle and moved from LCC for an October start with two year groups. The old BA Performance Technical Effects rooms were completely refurbished to create a seminar room, studio, workshop and prop store, together with a staff office and tutorial area. A considerable amount of detailed planning work was carried out working alongside the academic team, estates, contractors and other stakeholders.
The photographs below show the original rooms through the building works to the final layout and occupation by the course.
