The DIY House by Asylum – Oct 2012

The installation is an exploration into the potential of an unexpected material realized through makeshift architecture. The ‘DIY House’ is a structure, which intends to utilize the material qualities of tape by cladding a framework to make a shelter. By utilizing an accessible and versatile material, the audience can appreciate the properties of a common and industrial household product such as the combined elements of the strength of the tape and the form of the metal, allowing the house to retain its balance and to stand.  Come visit the DIY House at Dream Interiors, as part of Saturday in Design showcase on 6 October, 10am – 7pm.
