FALSEWORK


False-work is a language of temporary building systems and techniques. It is the building that builds our buildings. Deployed throughout the city in the perpetual cycle of construction/demolition projects, it now constitutes a permanent presence of materi...als and forms in the urban visual landscape.

False-work is a language of temporary building systems and techniques. It is the building that builds our buildings. Deployed throughout the city in the perpetual cycle of construction/demolition projects, it now constitutes a permanent presence of materi...als and forms in the urban visual landscape. Manufactured to be adaptable and easy to assemble on location, the structural elements adhere to a strict ethos of economy and function. Perhaps owing to these very principles of utility, they evoke a curiosity. In a range of mysterious, difficult to understand, even hubristic gestures, we are peripherally made witness to the very birth and death of the city and its sites. The gallery provides a frame, a moment in which to review both the familiar and unfamiliar qualities of these constructions. The physical environments that we have made reflect our investigation into these qualities as well as an exploration into their spatial possibilities and emotional resonance.
