Atlas of the Unbuilt World
Atlas of the Unbuilt World was an exhibition by the British Council for the London Festival of Architecture 2013 which showcased 66 architectural models of unbuilt projects from 40 countries across the world. The exhibition design used common construction materials such as scaffold poles, debris netting and recycled building wrap to create a backdrop for the architectural models. These were placed across a field of nearly 100 scaffold pole tripods, arranged in a loose grid according to each project’s global coordinate. Layers of white debris netting filter light into the space and provide the framework for a slideshow of associated project imagery. A set of scaffold pole tripod stools with seats stitched from recycled building wrap were unfolded for talks, events or discussions during the exhibition.
