BA (Hons) Architecture

Sorina Siddall

A Platform City.

One way of approaching non-spaces within the city is through that of the Drift. Coined by the Situationist group in France, their distaste for consumerism produced a need for “wandering around the city, drifting without destination”. Debord, G. in Sadler, S. (1999).                 

It is in this way that we can investigate and immerse ourselves in order to look for clues of history. Platform city transforms an existing non-place in the city, where the superimposition of programme involving differing individuals, has meant that only architecture has allowed them to coexist side by side in a given space.
