Alison Brooks Architects have been invited by the 16th International Architecture Exhibition curators Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara of Grafton Architects to respond to this year’s theme of ‘Freespace’ by addressing the subject of housing and urban dwelling.

We have created a large-scale, site specific installation that simulates the critical freespaces of their work in housing as four inhabitable ‘totems’: Threshold, Inhabited Edge, Passage, and Roofspace. The totems invite exploration, emerging from a unifying plinth to frame an amphitheatre and collective gathering space. Each totem offers a particular spatial, emotional and sensory experience, harnessing the Corderie’s specific qualities of light and volume. It has been this practice’s mission to reveal  housing architecture’s civic role and its potential for meaningful, subjective experience.

ReCasting will be on public display in the Corderie, Arsenale at the 16th Venice Architecture Biennale from Saturday 26 May until 25 November 2018.

Following her keynote lecture in Toronto, Alison Brooks was interviewed by The Globe & Mail, Canada’s most widely read newspaper, on the responsibility of architects to make great buildings, better cities, and to deliver high quality design, joy and beauty.

“Her career of three decades in Britain suggests a lesson for design professionals: That fighting for the ideal building and city is their job, and sometimes they can even win.” writes Alex Bozikovic. “Her buildings are respectful of traditional urban design, sensitive to the city around them and are both beautiful and inventive.”
