    3013 Installation was one of five units at the AA's Summer School 2011 programme.
3013 Installation
The unit developed a sequence of three skins to connect the upper terrace and lower courtyard at the AA in Bedford Square. The surfaces were formed from pairs of twisted plywood strips cut from salvaged exhibition panels. These were joined together at their edges to form flexible skins tailored to the site. The upper skins were suspended from above, lightly touching the existing brick walls for support; the fabric-like behaviour of the surfaces allowed their final form to be determined by how they rest naturally under gravity.

This installation revealed the hidden relationships between different levels of the building, creating temporary shelters and flexible gathering points that address how the city might be occupied today and in the future.
