Architecture is significant as it surrounds us in one way or another, therefore undoubtedly has an impact on the general public. I am interested in exploring Manchester and the different incidents that happen every day, from road works to buildings becoming derelict, focusing on shapes, signs and vistas symbolising the unpredictability of the environment surrounding us.

I have been inspired by the different buildings in Manchester from The Town Hall to overlooked, abandoned and derelict industrial sites. I am intrigued by the shapes from different buildings, such as the elaborate archway doors, the triangular roof tops and the overlapping silhouettes, skylines and interrupted panorama of the city. These fragments of the city and its architecture have been synthesised onto various scrap materials that I have found around Manchester, such as wood and cardboard. They have been displayed at different levels to interpret my experience of encountering the city; disorientation, decline, chaos.
