Auckland Strip 24 Jun 2015 – 26 Jul
Review Gallery

Within her practice, Raphaela Rose engages with architecture as a political device. Her work is in the form of ‘paper architecture’ which considers the use of design as an instrument for social intervention.

This exhibition consists of a series of drawings, plans and marzipan-like 3D printed ceramic representations of 13 buildings comprising a small scale city. Each building is represented visually through an axonometric drawing objectifying the design, a plan revealing the power behind the architect, and a perspective drawing describing the sexual narrative of a new Auckland.

It is intended that each drawing be read simultaneously as a singular print in a larger patchwork schematic of the city. The show intends to test the speculative nature of architecture by promoting innovative solutions to some of the sociological issues of the 21st century.

Drawings from top to bottom:

  • Teahouse
  • Hire a Hubby
  • Josephine Bakers Blue
  • Passion Pit
  • Seed Bank
  • Speakers Corner
  • Titilating Observation
