#SocialSpace is a new bar and seating area designed by Prof Lokko, Eric Wright and The Coloured Cube to provide GSA students with a much-needed gathering space at FADA. Two giant benches and a generous bar area with a specially-designed and made chandelier light fitting by Trevor McGurk bring light and warmth to a previously under-used area. On opening afternoon, Eric Wright doubled up as barman and cocktail waiter, mixing trademark drinks for students who'd been up all night putting together their portfolios. No great school of architecture is without a bar (or so it's rumoured)! So now we have one.
