Omnitecture - "Building for all"

The Omnitecture project ran for 5 days in May 2008. This blog documents the projects progress.

Omnitecture at Talent 2008

The Omnitecture project will go on show at the Designhuis from the 18th October until 30th November as part of the Talent 2008 exhibition. This exhibition will showcase the work of more than 100 graduates from 50 European Institutions.

"Talent 2008 gives an overview of the current state of European Design education and its future stars as selected by Li Edelkoort, Art Director, Designhuis."

The Brief

The Guerrilla Gardeners are a global movement of people who cultivate derelict public spaces without the permission of the authorities.

Inspired by their actions, I wanted to see if the same was possible with architecture.

I placed five small buildings, each with a different function, around Edinburgh and recorded what happened after they went on site.

You can see the results and reaction of the public below.
