for the moment i'm looking at contrasts in architectural styles, like the Victorian redbrick houses of Hampstead and Maida Vale versus the brutalist (social housing) estates of Robin Hood Gardens, Trellick Tower and the soon to be demolished Elephant & Castle Heygate Estate
i hope to capture some of what it might feel like to live in these very different types of buildings and using elements of the two (which are generally either loved or loathed) combine them to create a more balanced type of housing for everybody

i think this figure adds just enough to the understanding of what the image represents and also compliments the abstractness of the wall

below are two variations of the text wall with texture applied in different colours

not sure what i think of this... the rather long-winded idea behind this was the olive trees as a metaphor for peace (the Bible) being destroyed by the wall. basically this wall is a symbol of resistance in this case against peace in the middle east
