Together with UID in Umeå we designed and built this photobooth for student portraits. Inside is a two way mirror, with the camera and lights behind in the dark, so when sitting inside you cannot see the tech, or where the image is being taken from.
There is audio feedback from the camera shutter, when the user presses the all important biggish red button.

Hungerford Bridge Space

For the last 8 months we have been working together with the professor Iain Borden and then the appointed architect Soren Nordal Enevoldsen to realise a new space at The Southbank centre, on the river Thames in London. This public space has been designed in the sprit of the current skatable location, but has been tweaked to be really great for skateboarding.

This space will be made from high quality materials consisting of mostly granite slabs, and bricks, it has been legally guarantee for this use for 125 years, and the design allows for change, adaption and re-appropriation.

Many thanks for the input from all the skaters, bmxers and artist who came to the public meetings, and the others involved in the focus group meetings. We all hope that this design will help preserve the integrity of the cultures involved for the foreseeable future.



More information and a press release can be found here.
