Concept design for a ‘pop-up’ local library box to be installed in disused retail units. Rather than simply focussing on the materiel of books, the solution targets programmatic affordance, with projective and interactive surfaces, acoustic treatments that double as re-configurable seating seating and high density book storage and ‘vending’.
Completed with Surface Architects, who were appointed to work with LOCOG and ISG in the design and delivery of a family of high profile Wayfinding structures for the 2012 Olympic Park. The proposals combine historic vectors and iconic influences into a highly distinctive design that fits LOCOG’s original ‘look and feel’ brief. Each form incorporates LED backlighting, creating a field of glowing beacons across the Stratford Park. Six 7m high zone beacons, five 15m high major beacons and two 12m […]
Micro-Installation produced for Bompass and Parr in 2010 as part of their exhibition and venue ‘The Complete History of Food’. A ‘bioresponsive jelly’ was made to pulse in time with the observer’s heat-beat, providing an instant and amusing interaction as they ate it. It is suprising what people will willingly push their fingers into.
A large installation constructed in a warehouse near Euston, London, in 2009, ‘The Switching Labyrinth’ provided a framework for two weeks of real-time interactive experimentation and observation. 250 metres of black curtains constructed a wrapping of pathways around a central ‘room’, where sliding curtain ‘doors’ periodically shifted, ‘switching’ openings to offer alternative entrance and exits. As an occupant navigated and learnt about the installation, it too observed them, learing about how it was explored and unilaterally modulating its entangling paths […]
Animation of design proposals for a finish arch for UK Triathlon’s elite series hosting in Hyde Park, London. A series of folded steel barriers form the transition zones where athletes switch from swim to bike to running; before rising up to a triumphal finish and timing archway. Notions of the body as a wrapped form informed the folding geometries of the steel plates, which were provided to reflect Corus’ sponsorship of the event. Completed with Surface Architects.
