In October 2019, members of Studio Bark were arrested for their part in the Extinction Rebellion protests in Trafalgar Square. The practice adapted their self-build system U-build, to make modular plywood roadblock towers, stages and seating for the protests. Nick Newman, director of Studio Bark, joins us to discuss the importance of protest architecture and reflect on the use of architectural skills for Non Violent Direct Action (NVDA).
