Metropolis Transformed: King's Cross
26 May 2014
Drawing the Future on the Past
Drawings and photographs that piece together layers of architectural history in the largest area of urban redevelopment in Europe (the King's Cross project) by appropriating fragments from print archives, transforming them in scale, context and content to evoke a sense of passing time. The unbuilt places of the future and the disappeared buildings from the past are imagined and revisited. Part document, part fiction, the work presents architectural regeneration as inevitable, while considering its effect on the environment and communities of today.
