Exploring the concept of compartmentalisation within my design, I separated the distinct compartments of my sculptor’s studio into living, working and exhibition spaces. By basing the form of my proposal on the spatial installation titled ‘The Room’ by my sculptor Roman Sakin, the building became a monumental sculpture in itself. At the same time, the use of concrete provided a neutral backdrop against which my sculptor could exhibit the wide variety of his colourful monumental and kinetic sculptures in the outdoor exhibition space. The curations of spatial installations for members of the public to interact with was also possible, since the exhibition area is made up of a grid of blocks that can be kinetically manipulated in terms of height, making it flexible to accommodate for all the types of work Sakin creates.
