‘Beginnings are usually more interesting than elaborations and endings. Beginning means exploration, selection, development, a potent vitality not yet limited, not circumscribed by the tried and traditional. For those of us concerned in our work with the adventure of search, going back to beginnings is seeing ourselves mirrored in others´ work, not in the result but in the process.’ (Albers, 2017)
Stress in weaving is explored in my community proposal to reconnect the people of Drummond Street. 

Lightweight, transformable timber components and tensile elements form a framework made by the community and inhabited by variations of spatial qualities. Simplicity in structure opens the possibility for complexity through materiality, process and collaboration. The architecture offers flexibility and non-prescribed space. The principle of opposites is an underlying theme of the project.
