Unit 3 – Installation City 3013

Lawrence Lek, Onur Ozkaya & Jesse Randzio

This unit develops temporary site-specific installations of public spaces that address the evolution and obsolescence of the city. A language of growth and decay will be developed through a collective 1:1 installation and large-scale models drawn from studies of hyperactivity within London today. Students will develop prototyping techniques to address two complementary rates of change – the way materials agglomerate to form a city, and the way people interact directly with their environment. In a thousand years, whatever seems significant today will be a faint memory of collective culture. By projecting so far into the future, disbelief will be suspended long enough for students to express their imaginations fully.
