Space of Spectacle
The University of London is one of the most crucial catalysts to London as a city and the proposal seeks to augment this catalyst.
The project takes two observations of the University of London's Bloomsbury Area into account: 1. The student strikes and occupation in 2011 and the fashion in which the students transform their ordinary environment into the extraordinary, using the existing university fabric as a backdrop to their stage. 2. The parasitical way in which high-pressure groups use the university for recruiting new members. Learning from these observations and translating the urban choreography these groups employ, Space of Spectacle creates a non-conditional space, intensifying the frictional overlap between university and city.
