PHASE3 Architectural Score

Here we see an architectural score illustrating the history and future of PHASE3. A combination of practice, teaching and research, from its manifestation at the Architectural Association, to the future-focused practice we are today. It is an expression of the PHASE3 ecosystem and evolution of the office agenda.

What is an architectural score?

At PHASE3 an architectural score seeks to define the life cycle of a project through five key themes: Time, Community, Spatial Context, Articulation and Legacy. It brings together 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 and ask how these will contribute to the whole. Each 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.
