Across the rooftops of several prominent buildings in Geneva’s Plaine de Plainpalais are nine neon sculptures, which create an additional visual space in an already dense urban environment.  The project, 'Urban Parallax' was officially inaugurated in October 2012 with an exhibition and an international conference at the Salle du Faubourg.

The People’s Canopy

The People’s Canopy was a mobile architectural structure designed specifically for the city of Preston by award-winning Beijing architects People’s Architecture Office. The People’s Canopy was a two-storey high expandable roof structure on bicycle wheels. The ten units were designed to collapse to the size of a double decker bus to be pedalled from one location to another and thereby transform underused public spaces; spaces for auto transport are turned into spaces for pedestrians and events, and open streets connected. The aim of the project was to develop a bespoke, temporary architectural intervention for Preston that would create new, visible connections between the university and the city centre, as well as celebrate UCLan’s international links.

Harris Flights

In Certain Places worked with architectural practice Research Design to examine the original plans for the Harris Museum & Art Gallery, drawn up by architect James Hibbert, and to create a new temporary staircase, which invited people to move directly from the space of Preston’s Market Square into the heart of the Harris building. The Flights took people through the ‘front door’ of the building on the first floor, allowing them to experience the neo-classical, Grade I listed building in an entirely new way.
