CSM Insider: Meet Cecily, 1st year Fashion Knitwear student

My phone buzzes glowing with a message… “Hello! Jus checkin…. you’re still okay to come at 11?” Cecily’s doing me the favour of inviting me into her flat for a shoot, and she’s the one messaging me to check if I’m still available. I arrive 5 min early and after a quick message, I see a blur of wild red locks appear before me. Chocolate kale smoothie in hand, golden boots unzipped and flapping, Cecily shows me up to her flat.
the Futuro House

Craig Barnes, the man who owns a spaceship house

The Futuro House is perhaps one of the most poignant incarnations of the utopian spirit of the 60’s and 70’s and its downfalls. Conceived as a ski cabin, it embodies a time where technological advancements seemed to have promised a future of leisure and economical prosperity. However, it was hated by the public, and most of the units were destroyed. Artist and CSM alumni Craig Barnes bought and renovated one of the few remaining houses, and set it up first at Matt's Gallery, and now on top of Central Saint Martins. In our definitely less optimistic times, we met him inside the Futuro House to talk about his relationship with it.
