‘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.’
