Building on Snarkitecture’s exploration of excavation as an architectural process, the Topographies Collection transforms a three-dimensional exercise into a two-dimensional wall covering. Stacks of paper were torn by hand to reveal a stepped topography, implying an unknown architectural depth within the image. The textured contours play between the looseness and depth of the torn excavations and the prevision and flatness of the wall surface. Alluding to the aging process of layered wallcoverings, Snarkitecture’s design reveals an unexpected relationship between destruction and construction.
