There are no miniatures in nature
1:1 proposes a series of architectural products to question the status of the scaled model.

Depicting a world in which society is free from the dominance of industry, individuals now solely strive towards the production of knowledge.

The ObTower is inspired by the idea of protecting nature from the actions of man and is designed to have minimal impact on its environment.
The Circuform is a round table platform accessible through a circular runway – a temporary place for technocrats to meet and debate.
The StandTour imagines nature as an endless open-air stadium. Movable stands provide joyrides for nature enthusiasts.

I am fascinated by the ambiguity of scaled models and our ability to read the code of their scale. Architectural models are commonly understood in their abstracted and conceptual intention. Unlike real architectural proposals, my objects sit in between idea and product and are neither meant to be scaled up nor to be produced as a product. They are extrapolations of current ideologies or political mind sets that would eventually manifest in artefacts.



Circuform – A round table platform accessible through a circular runway. It is a temporary place for technocrats to meet and debate. Model made of anodised aluminium.

ObTower – A radical, one-person living space, designed to have minimal impact on its environment.

ObTower – Modular living units made of wood and painted resin.

StandTour – Movable stands provide joyrides for nature enthusiasts.

StandTour – Track clips made of polished stainless steel.
