Gordon Matta Clark, Conical Intersect c.1975
This project provides no additional floor area to the building but instead a new dwelling is made through a number of minimal interventions offering an architectural service on a tight budget.
A number of incisions were made in the building to provide new connections and flexible living arrangements. Each opening is repaired by simple joinery items that become useful pieces of furniture.
A language of the informal and imperfect sees these tiny bits of architecture start to infect the building, creating connectivity and flexibility within the existing cottage. Acting tactically in this way means a maximum outcome is achieved allowing light, program spontaneity and freedom to reign.
