Black Tent Theatre

Founded in Japan in 1968 through the merger of three dramatic groups, the company took its name as the actors used to perform all over Japan inside a large mobile black tent, carried by two trucks. The assembly was made using the same trucks as a supporting structure for the textile. Images by Kappa Senoo illustrate the ingenious mechanism used to deploy the tent and set up the theatre.

Quinta Monroy Housing by Elemental

In 2003 the Chilean government commissioned the Elemental to create housing for a community of nearly one hundred low-income households on a 1.25-acre site in central Iquique, a desert city in northern Chile with a population of 200,000. The budget consisted of $7,500 per unit for land, infrastructure, and building.

Elemental developed a variation on the traditional row house in which each unit consists of one built segment flanked by an empty area of equal size—a building type that can be inhabited immediately and also incorporate significant change over time. Over a period of nine months, ninety-three basic reinforced-concrete units were built. Each was equipped with the barest of basics: plumbing but no fittings for kitchen and bathroom, an access stair, and openings for doorways. Once the modular outlines were completed, residents moved in and began finishing and customising their spaces at their own expense and at a pace that their incomes allowed, adding colour, texture, and vitality. Living space in completed Quinta Monroy Housing units is more than double—roughly 750 square feet—what the original tiny budget could fund.

As promised a long time ago, some of my own work from a long time ago:

We were looking at flooding in Lewes, and I was imagining methods of dealing with the regular problem. Here I imagined lifting the town above the flood line, and the huge structure this would require, with the help of Konrad Wachsmann.
