Encampment#1

2014
Kestle Barton, Cornwall, UK.

A series of architectural investigations using a fusion of locally found post-consumer waste and traditional 'low impact' techniques.

An encampment of 'benders' was made during a two day public workshop using locally grown willow, discarded yacht sails, bailer twine and silage wrap. The encampment was exhibited as an integral part of the 'Lizard Exit Plan' exhibition narrative.

Exploring 'the apocalyptic vernacular' - the residual field of possibilities presented by a given site following its withdrawal from global networks of commerce - the project examines connections between environmental politics and site-sensitive architecture, rethinking the local-global relation in imaginary post-capitalist apocalyptic scenarios.
