In collaboration with the artist Pablo Bronstein, this piece explored the history of London in the form of an urban grotto. It's abstract external form is sliced into sections that create an irregular internal space, reminiscent of urban spaces in the City of London where its medieval street pattern conflicts with the giant forms of contemporary office space. Internally, each face takes on characters of traditional London architecture, create an internalised and compressed public space.
