Political Power Clubs: An investigation into women’s empowerment

Oxford Street’s House of Fraser is re-purposed in this thesis. Designing a new haven for women in politics and power, it proposes a radical transformation of space, responding to the possibilities of women’s voices in a world of tradition and order. By reprogramming the generous voids of the 1920s building with engaging content, a new typological paradigm will form.
