Writing on the wall for Brighton architects
10:00am Tuesday 26th June 2012 in Business News
A MODEL house is not making headlines – it is made out of them.
This paper house was built from old copies of The Argus by Yelo Architects, based in Marlborough Place, Brighton.
The director of the firm, Andy Parsons said that the quirky structure had a serious point.
He said: “Under the proposed City Plan more houses need to be built in the city. That means we will have to build smaller homes.
“This 12-square-metre model shows it can be done.” The event was part of Threshold Architecture Hub – a pop-up architecture centre in Brighton during the Love Architecture festival.
The architects took over the basement car park at myhotel in Jubilee Street to put on a series of exhibitions, talks, performances and architecture related games.
It was led by RIBA Sussex Branch with a:b:i:r architects, Chalk Architecture, architectural photographer Jim Stephenson and arts consultant and curator Cara Courage.
