At the Venice Biennale 2018

proposal B was commissioned especially for the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale. The festival organisers said, “When we visited Salter + Collingridge’s recently completed Walmer Yard building in London we felt it to be a built testament to their position, a work of radical resistance to the contemporary pressure to obliterate craft. The building feels like a kind of contemporary medieval construct built with love and dedication, by uniquely creative and original architects.”
