PHASE3 Architectural Score

Here we see the architectural score of PHASE3. It is the combination of practice, teaching and research, from its manifestation at the Architectural Association, to the future-focused practice we are today. It helps express the PHASE3 ecosystem and evolve the office’s agenda.

What is an architectural score?

An architectural score seeks to define the life cycle of a project through five key themes: Time, Community, Spatial Context, Architectural Language and Legacy. It brings together, or plays, what has been done and what can be done in a constantly evolving timeline. When constructing the score, we consider format, language, sequence and motif. We ask how these will contribute to the whole. A key agenda drives the score’s program, enabling us to create a strategy to support a future community.

We constantly use the architectural score as a research tool – both to influence the development of practice and to distil the complex down to its very essence.
