In an urban environment that is constantly changing and expanding, what happens to that which no longer fits the mould? When our vertical aspirations fall short? Imagine an environment that listens to the past of site and speaks to its future aspirations, one that’s inclusive of history through the use of materials; addressing its ambitions through colour and form. Mimicking the palliative tendencies of architects and property developers. The work aims to question areas of tension rooted in today’s society: enquiries into the role and function of the private sector and civic space. Taking standardised objects and forms from industry, the work begins to subvert them through the alteration of context and material.
