Description
Summary:This project examines ways in which architectural tropes might operate within an installation practice. Looking specifically at suburban architecture and the idea of renovation and DIY within a suburban context, this project explores the particular associations, ideals and value systems that become embedded in architecture through the subjective question of taste. Furthermore, this project examines the role of both language and material properties within the practice as a means of both evoking subjective association in a viewer and probing further notions around 'taste' and 'lifestyle'.
