Creative Tensions

The exploration of opposites is a theme that runs through much of architectural practice; inside & outside, public & private, solidity & lightness, natural & fabricated (and particularly in our work – historic & contemporary). The grey area between the two poles offers a creatively fertile opportunity for analysis; one of hard thresholds and vague ambiguous middle-grounds.

Last weekend some of the architects from FCBS undertook some drawing exercises that attempted to express some of the delight, or even discomfort, that can be found when opposites collide.
