Three drawings of a tower made from aeroplanes

Winner - Lockdown prize

Victor Hugo Azevedo, Cheryl Lu Xu
Robert A. M. Stern Architects, New York, USA

Aeroplane Tower, 2020

Autodesk Sketchbook for the Ipad Pro

‘Covid-19 halted air travel and exacerbated affordable housing shortages. If aeroplanes are buildings that fly, why not upcycle them as building materials? Our proposal of vertically stacking decommissioned aeroplanes into a residential tower also creates the poetic irony of sending flightless aeroplanes back to the sky.’

Apartment #5, a Labyrinth and Repository of Spatial Memories, 2020

Pencil on paper, Rhino

‘Locked in my home, I am left with memories of times and places past… The dwelling, set in London, re- creates atmospheres of places remembered from a recent voyage to India. Separate pencil hand-drawings (over a Rhino base), are digitally composed, corrupting and curating places into a labyrinth of spatial memories.’

Choate Colony Hall, 2019

Free-Hand/Photoshop/Wacom Monitor/Cinema4D

‘Executed during an extended planned hiatus from professional work, during a difficult time, this became a contemplative exercise, almost meditative. Commissioned by RAMSA as a gift for their client, a collector of Piranesi’s works, it renders RAMSA’s own design for Choate Colony Hall as a ruin, with homage paid to Piranesi, and references to Hubert Robert.’
