To mark the launch of RIBA North, Un-veiled visually and spatially interpreted the aims and purpose of the new national architecture centre.
The resulting pavilion in the Winter Gardens, a covered public area at the entrance to RIBA North, used curtains of mesh fabric, used on building site scaffolding, to create sections through some of the most iconic architectural structures across the Northern Powerhouse. Scale negatives of these buildings wafted in and out of focus as visitors walked through, beyond and within, The Sage in Gateshead, Imperial War Museum North, Liverpool Catholic Cathedral and York Minster.
