Critical Structures

Investigating structures that criticize other structures.

Collection of opposition drawings in Zurich, CH. Posters to convince the public to vote in favor or against a project within mandatory opinion polls.
The "Viehsperre"—a structure that enables and supports trespassing on other people's land. A variety of Viehsperren from Austria and Switzerland.
The Chimney—a structure that is now about to go, in the past, however, had a strong physical appearance. Here: chimney versus window, Venice.
The Lean-to—criticizing the main structure for obvious reasons.
The Party Wall—as ubiquitous urban element.
The Elevated Structure—trying to redefine the object's relationship to the ground.
The Outhouse—out of harm's way.
