_Richards Stanisich’s entry explores how the human essentials of shelter, sanctuary, hygiene and intimacy have remained largely unchanged for thousands of years, but technology is rapidly altering how we respond to those needs

_The outer layer of this installation is wrapped in black gloss tiles bordered by blue light, representing the the digital world.  The centre of the space, the kitchen, living and sleeping zones are handmade, tactile and textural;  earthy qualities representing our natural needs

_directors Aaron Roberts and Kim Bridgland speak of the necessity for  dissonance within architecture, its ability to “dilate” and “sensitise”.  A building must quietly yet firmly awake and invigorate one’s appreciation for its landscape.  This consciousness provides a sympathy and sensitivity for the environment, rather than imitating and reflecting the landscape.
