A MAarch student from the Bartlett School of Architecture is proposing a game of world play.

The landscape will transport a child from their bedroom to another far away place through the use of layered imagery, craft and imagination. The purpose of this game is to raise awareness and help children gain an understanding of other cultures in the London boroughs and the world.

Through the use of digital technology and projection mapping in order to create layers of imagery, this will articulate the design and transform a space from one place into another. This layered imagery will also portray the amalgamation of cultures in London society. The form will change to reflect the children’s cultural imaginations.

 

Transformation of place.

From certain perspectives the colours appear to overlap and create a beautiful landscape within the geometric form. The children will receive layers of imagery, an amalgamation of the country they are travelling to, as well imagery that define their own borough. When children congregate once a month to combine their creations, this blurring and combination of imagery will be achieved.

“The imagination is not an escape, but a return to the richness of our true selves; a return to reality.” George Mackay Brown
