Micro Architecture in Ashdown Forest.

Studio M2 student Andreani Papaioannou’s ‘device’ replaces a missing plank on a bridge in the Ashdown Forest as a piece of micro architecture which bridges a gap and improves something on the specific location as well as collects data. It is inspired by the water flow on site and it is the development of earlier ‘façade’ studies which focused on the flow between different elements and the re-activation of the in-between space. The device is used to measure humidity levels by placing artificial soil inside the covered ‘pockets’. The artificial soil will absorb water from the condensed water vapour and expand allowing measurements to be taken.
