On my way to the academy I pass by a house that is still under construction. Again, and again, I make a pitstop - and sometimes a photo, fascinated by its appearance. Similar to brutalist architecture, the dark grey, artificial shapes and hard concrete make the building somewhat inhumane. And yet it is being created to accommodate people. Through my project I want to reconstruct the oppressive feeling of emptiness that modern architecture casts upon the human spirit.
