Additions & Alterations: Recent Built Work by Local Studio in Johannesburg 2012–2015
- Counterspace was commissioned by Local Studio, a young local architectural practice, to put together an exhibition of their recent capsule of public buildings.
We were drawn to the notion of showcasing the building in use. Our animated graphic style displays the day to day soap opera of the life of the buildings.
- // Superpowers. To us, almost as intriguing as Local Studio’s architectures, are the stories surrounding them. The work is almost always borne from smaller projects undertaken in a spirit of immense generosity.
// Superabundance. The exhibition celebrates the narratives of the buildings pre, during and post construction – capturing a small snapshot of the complexities, actors, networks and conversations that extend beyond the architect and the architecture.
// Superstudio. The determination to deliver thoughtful architecture. The photographic and drawn exhibits shows the deep appreciating of context and how the building facilitates the spirit of people and place.
