Unit G will seek answers through 4 projects; testing and exploring spatial and conceptual relationships between place, people, purpose and permanence; employing “transformative architecture” as a catalyst for positive change, celebrating diversity, identity, export, exchange, and migration between home and outpost.
The projects will engage with community, explore architectural, cultural and social possibilities, and propose radical interventions between permanent/transitory, old/new, traditional/revolutionary, here/there; yours/ours, mine/theirs: you will need to take a position.
