The Dendriform

In the 1930’s, Frank Lloyd Wright was commissioned by Herbert Johnson to design the headquarters for S.C. Johnson & Son, a company specializing in household cleaning supplies. One of the key features of the design was the “Great Workroom”, a communal space whereby staff of the company could work within a vast expanse of space while the administrators watched from the mezzanine above. To support this space, Wright designed the dendriform column, a concrete structure inspired by the organic form of trees.

Billboard Landscape

Hong Kong is a city of signage. Buildings, especially those in older neighbourhoods, feature advertisements and billboards of varying design and composition overhanging onto the street, creating a dynamic layering of elements which contribute towards a richly diverse landscape. Designed as a standalone object with little consideration of their surrounding other than to proclaim its messages to the street, these billboards are a physical representation of the economic undercurrents at play on the urban fabric of the city.
