Process and Documentation

Substation2601 is a proposed Art Gallery and public transport platform on the corner of Station and Main Road. Observatory, Cape Town. The building attempts to recycle wasted space around an electrical service building to better serve commuters and have a positive effect on traffic congestion. Through the physical manipulation of flat bar steel an object is created that is based upon a subjective feeling of the site and its environment.

Initial images show sculptural/formal conceptual development in the processes of 'making' the building.
