  • The project explores external forces, which affect our relationship with forms of failure in the built environment. It attempts to re-frame an existing vacant tower block through the overlapping and contrasting of both real and fictional perspectives. These perspectives are inscribed in the landscape and presented through various forms of media in an effort to re-think how it is perceived. Can we start to understand failure as an, not only ‘allowed’, but ‘necessary’ condition in our urban environment?
