the dirt wall : construction week

the dirt wall, a wall built by using fabric as the formwork. four timber aparatus's are bolted at both ends which limits the boundaries of the dirt. dirt is then poured inside the fabric and rammed down by an electric earth rammer. without any usage of adhesive, the wall stands proud mimicing a mattress.

questions of materiality

the proposed site of the garden institution currently houses the heygate estate, which was home to thousands of people. known for its shady corridors and crime, it is still loved by the people who have lived there for years and call it home. destined to be knocked down for the new development, the garden institution will harvest the demolition debris and use it for its own.
