Hackney Wick Co-operative
Hackney Honey Gardens exist as a series of towers that run parallel to hackney wick rail station and adjacent to the Hertford union Canal. The towers function as Honey making, collecting and processing systems as well as dwelling spaces for resident beekeepers and co-operative members. The collected Honey is jarred and sold or traded within the central Hub of the operating co-operative, at the Lord Napier Public House towards the entrance of Hackney wick Station

Margaret Bursa - New Local Zlin
The Czech town of Zlín is the site of a social, industrial and architectural experiment begun by Tomas Bata in 1894. The shoe-making factories that were once the town’s driving force no longer operate and so the social and commercial structure of the town and its suburbs are in decline. Responding to the New Local Manifestoa layer of facilities is laid over and interwoven into the residential neighbourhoods where seven housing typologies are afforded dual functions of work and domestic life.

Hans Hollein, Aircraft Carrier Projects, 1964
All of Hollein’s drawings in this book are from his Transformations series, created between 1963 and 1968. In each, an agricultural or urban landscape, often apparently barren, becomes the site for a monumental object. The drawings are visual parodies of Le Corbusier’s concept of architecture as an object in the landscape, an idea exemplified in his seminal book Vers une Architecture (Toward a new architecture), with its images of ocean liners, automobiles, and airplanes-examples of technological ingenuity that stand as singular objects, more worthy of an absolute and dominant place in the world than any other current example of monumental architecture.

“This house works like a chessboard. The pieces move according to the rules of each object… They must always return to the starting point to restart the game… Hence the floor, which set the existing items back in front of the windows… or the paint on the walls, which reveals the discovered fragments, are the rules of the game… Amongst them, moving in an orderly fashion, are tables, books, chairs…” Enric Miralles
