Portfolio, Practice Based, architecture, models


The output consists of a body of 22 hand-made, small-scale architectural models that replicate European street kiosks. The research addresses questions about the nature of kiosks as symbols of aspects of contemporary culture such as transience and the fragility of small-scale commerce. Through this, it explores larger issues around the way disused architecture can incite reflection upon the impact of global systems of production and consumption on collective urban experience. Kiosk was selected for two international exhibitions: Intersection, Scottish Architecture Fringe 2017, Edinburgh, 14–16 July 2017 and Make-Shift, Collyer Bristow Gallery, London, 12 October 2017 – 13 February 2018.
