Images of sculptures from 'Why buildings stand up/Why Buildings Fall Down', solo show at Malgras|Naudet, August 2013. The show presented drawing, projected images and sculpture created in response to a month long period of research into post-colonial architectures in Namibia and South Africa in late 2012.  The title of the show comes from the books Why Buildings Stand Up (Salvadori: 2002) and Why Buildings Fall Down (Salvadori, Levy: 2002).  The texts outline the principles why buildings weight bear, and why they sometimes collapse, in relation to engineering and human narratives.
