Entombment of Fear: A Progressive Architectural Movement Towards a Nuclear-free Japan, 2020

SketchUp, Vray, Photoshop

‘The site for this project is the recently recommissioned Hamaoka Nuclear Power Plant on the east coast of Japan. There is a high likelihood of an earthquake hitting the region and causing a nuclear disaster like that of Fukushima. The project dwells on the theme of our response to the unmeasurable force of such disasters. Its uncanny appearance, associated with Shinto religion, is intended to provoke a sense of fear of their unimaginable impact.’

Fetching a Bucket of Steam, 2020

AutoCad, Photoshop, Sketchup and Revit

‘In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the north of Ireland was one of the most important linen-producing areas in the world. This project suggests an ulterior way of viewing Belfast’s ubiquitous linen mills, exploring the use of architectural drawing techniques to depict oral histories. By visualising lore it presents alternative and plural narratives, looking beyond the physical and the written history of a site.’

Here Everywhere: Orchard, 2020

Rhino3D, Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop

‘Here-Everywhere illustrates the delirious experiences of disturbed places in lockdown. Quarantines physically limit people to their homes. Historically, patients spending extended periods in care settings have experienced delirium, causing short attention span, incoherence, poor orientation and cognition. Extended quarantine has led to a similar imbalance.’

‘This drawing, in the form of a site analysis, presents a proposal for San Francisco’s Sunset District. It aims to create connections between residential and commercial areas using the example of Francesco Borromini’s baroque Sant’Ivo alla Sapienza in Rome.’

Theatre of Fictions, 2019

Digital Drawing and Collage composed through Rhino, Cinema4D and Photoshop

‘In March 2019, the results of the so-called ‘climate change election’ rendered visible Australia’s blind devotion to fossil fuels and unbridled growth despite the detrimental effects of these industries on the Great Barrier Reef. ApoState imagines a post-extractivist society for the Great Barrier Reef, built on alternative social and ecological contracts.’
