Concrete Opera

Concrete Opera is a libretto telling the story of a new tower being built in London. It features the multiple actors and the often invisible infrastructure behind physical spaces.

Alongside a publication, Concrete Opera is formed of a metaphorical set inviting re-enactment of a story everyone living in London is part of today.

  • I am a designer, researcher and lecturer. 

    My studio work consists mostly of printed matter (books, posters), identity and type design. My research practice takes the form of writing, talks and speculative or critical design. 

    My design and research practices are complemented by teaching, which I see as an area where experimentation, questioning, trial and error take place.
