1 Naoroji Street’s transparent surfaces, windows and archways have been designed to facilitate openness and communication. Its uses have ranged from, Victorian schoolhouse, Software Company and now project management HQ for designers and architects. The School House imagines how the building would make sense of these histories. It considers the role of the architect, as designer of space and teacher of human behaviour. In 1962, artist-architect Hans Hollein called to ‘liberate architecture from building’. In The School House, the brick and mortar disintegrate into pixels, becoming a ‘virtual game’ that will give you the tools to hack any space.
Video installation comprises ceiling projection and stereoscopic video played through goggles.
