FAT ARCHITECTURE

In collaboration with artist Grayson Perry


Tower of Fable is a fantasy about a very real piece of architecture: a toy sized remake of the Balfron Tower. This transformation brings out qualities of Goldfinger's architecture that lie just beneath its surface. Brutalism here is revealed as exciting as a country cottage. High architecture joins with the imagination of inhabitation and fantasies of play. Which of course, is exactly what architecture should always be. 730mm(h) x 500mm(w) x 210mm(d) Tower of Fable: laser-cut MDF with spray finish.

JAMES RAMSEY RAAD STUDIO

In collaboration with artist Lara Apponyi


The Grimm’s House is not just a dolls' house, but an interpretation of an illustrated fairy tale book for blind children. White, enigmatic, and somewhat menacing, the house is meant to be explored by touch. The story of Hansel and Gretel, written in braille, circumscribes the exterior, its jagged path mirroring the narrative of the story. The interior cavity is a tactile exploration of the fairytale, sculpted from hard candy, braided hair, and bones. The house translates an unnerving yet universal experience for children with sight into a new interpretation for those without. 200mm(h) x 750mm(w) x 750mm(d) Wood, paper, paint, candy, hair, bones. 22.5kg

and the sea is bluer than a swimming pool

STUDIO EGRET WEST

In collaboration with artist Andrew Logan


Puzzle House is a house with 2 distinct embodiments, when not in use it's a tidy colourful rectangular box and when in play mode, the construction explodes into 7 separate pieces, which are hollow spaces. Each space contains a jewellery-like object designed by artist Andrew Logan: a stair of mirrors, a ladder, a diving board, a few thimbles, a chain, a propeller. The house avoids any inhabited formal space and instead stimulates play focused on performance. The emphasis is on imagination rather than re-enactment. 200mm(h) x 200mm(w) x 660mm(d) Plywood, brass, plastic, found objects. 2kg
