An exploration of process and social phenomena, the studio derived from an interest in sub cultural environments and their exploitation in mainstream culture. Inspiration was taken from 1980s skateboarding and the recent pushes from fashion powerhouses to distance their brand from traditional catwalks. During the time of the project, anxiety from social insecurities and inauthenticity shaped my representational composition; the image of the girl taking a selfie is an ode to the contemporary acknowledgement of architectural production and the overemphasis of aesthetics. The project goal was to seamlessly integrate building systems with the overall aesthetics of the design.
