A set of drawings about decay and abandonment; about once functioning cities, neighborhoods, and buildings falling into disrepair while simultaneously being repurposed by potentially new communities for new uses. Visually distilled to basic architectural motifs: structure, facade, and urban plan, the drawings, in their banality, allow for broader contemplations on the reappropriation of culture, class, and communities. The works are also a commentary on architecture and urban planning that is developed as a commodity rather than centered on the human as a social and natural being, therefore reproducing and reinforcing the repressive aspects of economic deprivation and political marginalization.
