Concrete Geometries: the relational in architecture

Installation, 2011

Description

‘A white platform was built into the space, both blocking and opening it up. The platform took its levels, pattern and configuration from two different sets of elements and activities: the site: the architecture of a period room with its own features and decorations formally, structured through the geometric elements it retraced: an oval, an astroid and circle segments; and its definite and possible usages: the presentation, display and dissemination of work through viewing, talking, circulating, meeting and debate, and its use as an everyday social space.’
