Landscape modification structure
This temporary conceptual installation discovers hidden space in two simple actions; cut and pull.The lightweight structural insertion is capable of supporting landscape skins of changing environments and exposing real or magical/ imaginary spaces hidden under the surface.
On the beach at Dungeness, the shingles covering the structure provided a mini shelter making it look like it was dug into the ground. Using the stone of the site as cladding formed a camouflaged space during the day. At night, light shone through the perforated stone skin exposing a gem like object on the beach.
Placed in a playground, Stockwell London, the surface tore the lawn to discover a ‘hidden’ play space which uncovered a surprise – a layer of colourful shingles under the ground.
