THE DESERT OF THE REAL
University of Sydney, 2016
'The Desert of the Real' was conceived in my final year of undergraduate architecture at the University of Sydney. It is a speculative project exploring the political implications of architecture, influenced by the work of Lebbeus Woods. The project develops a system for creating a city which is a continuously expanding 'grid' of non-Euclidean geometries along a river, constructed by its inhabitants.
Ultimately, 'The Desert of the Real' is a heterotopia of nomads - a shifting architecture released from the grains of hyperreality, an architecture which constantly reinvents the human condition within an abstracted grid; a sprawling continuous monument to the void.
