The Piling of the City is a fictitious exhibition that highlights the work of Lebbeus Woods and Raimund Abraham, two architectural theorists known for their unrelenting opinions. Both of their works existed primarily within the spectrum of speculative writing and drawing. I created a spatial component as part of the project which extended the notion of metaphor into a physical form, constructing life–size letterforms spelling out the word CITY which could be piled into an infinite number of variations. The title was used as a means to act as a critical opposition to the title of The Building Museum, In order to question the nature of our need to build over and dominate the natural environment.
