MultiPlace examines syntax and a non-reductionist idea of object to object relations. Whole architectures rather than parts are extracted, decontextualized, and reconfigured through techniques that bring latent and otherwise unnoticed qualities to the surface. The proposal consists of six ensembles that make up a micro-manufacturing complex in Silvertown, London. Real-time rendering techniques are applied in tandem with distance-based surface effects to represent the project as a play on tectonic and aesthetic resolution. Paradoxically, as in the digital world, resolution decreases with proximity while the architecture appears as a whole resolved image only at a distance – further reinforcing the strange and irreducible traits of the project.
