PUBLIC PLINTHS - CAMDEN

 

This project was devised as a discursive tool to reimagine rooftops from comatose architectural vistages to vibrant and visible spaces for public life and assembly.

A scalable installation utilising a common outdoor chair as the single repeated element in a series of familiar yet ambiguous arrangements. Proposed over a network of rooftops across Camden High Street, London, these configurations hint at evidence of past social scenarios, from celebration and recreation, to vocation and organisation.

The week-long exhibiton acted as a space to invite guest speakers and practitioners including local labour councillor Sally Gimson to discuss and further explore proposals pertaining to the social aspect of the street.
