Mobile Studio Architects creates a handmade model made up of built and unbuilt residential buildings

Mobile Studio Architects introduces their work Planning Permission Granted (2010-15) with a colourful handmade model made up of their unseen private residential projects so far. Mobile Studio Architects won the ARUP Prize for Emerging Talent for Architecture and the studio's works are now exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2016, which will be on view till August 21, 2016. 

A playful survey of the practice’s private residential projects mostly focuses on unseen private projects by placing the raised models onto a highly stylised map of London, creating a fascinating landscape that juxtaposes both realised and conceptual projects.

The proposals are all handmade at 1:100 scale, elevated above a highly stylised map of London narrated via a series of annotations. Each project tells a personal story by pointing out different elements; from contextual surroundings to family life that takes place within.

Mobile Studio’s largely unseen private projects work symbiotically with the practice’s public projects – where ideas infiltrate one another. They all, however, share the common interest of a personal narrative within.

The studio's some proposals are completed, some under construction whilst others remain unbuilt. Each residential project model is raised up by metal sticks and displayed with colourful magnets. The whole model becomes a new showcase in an undulating landscape within a compound box.
