DIGITALISING POLARISATION

5th YEAR

 

Dubai exists as an architectural and economic phenomenon. It exhibits extreme polarisation by means of landscape, built environment and sociology. This project aims at representing this polarisation through varied methods of digital techniques and physical models. 

The 4 week project resulted in explorations of how to represent the polarisation in the city, and resulted in a very propositional 'bridge'. The bridge for Dubai was symbolic on multiple levels. The most evident is that of bridging between extreme extrusions in the landscape through buildings. A suggestion of a crossing, a plaster or mending adhesive to help smooth out the landscape.

This was a collaborative project with Sam Rigby.
