Grey Matters: We take inspiration from the city of Beirut to investigate the relationship between the figure and the ground in an abstracted manner. A figure-ground illustrates a mass-to-void relationship; in a city like Beirut where the void has become an increasingly valuable and disappearing space we choose to emphasize it and give it prominence.
While the mass remains dominant in the form of apartments, buildings and skyscrapers we choose to extend the ‘ground’. The ground which is no longer a virgin terrain has become an urbanized entity. We exaggerate this space in an attempt to re-imagine the city.
