Learning From Kilburn
Learning from Kilburn is a tiny experimental university with its curriculum rooted in Kilburn, NW6.
The project, directed by Tom Keeley for Spacemakers, used the high road and its hinterland as a campus, occupying a number of locations for classes led by architects, artists, writers and thinkers during the fall and spring terms of 2013-14.
An instantly deployable classroom set was designed for the University, forming a functional and unifying backdrop to the classes, be it in an empty shopfront, under a railway arch, or in the Tin Tabernacle, a corrugated metal structure home to the Kilburn Sea Cadets. The kit is made from appropriated photographers’ C-stands, infinity paper rolls, and chalkboard paints: it includes two tilting tables-cum-blackboards and a chalk A board in hyperlink blue.
