Home Sweet Home installation

Tuesday, July 15, 2008

I've been creating a home - at Home Sweet Home, part of the London Festival of Architecture. Home Sweet Home is a large city plan on the floor. Those taking part are given plots, houses and a blank canvas structure. Houses are created with paints, glitter, pipe cleaners, stickers, feathers and lots more.

Mainly, it's great fun, and touches on issues of housing, what makes a home, what works in cities, how cities work, democracy and community.

Our house was number 47, and we recreated a little bit of Austria in London, and then invited the neighbours around for delicious Austrian cakes.
