Title: Pop vs Old

Keywords: diversity, time, style

Description: In Day 1 in London, the diversity of the South Bank impressed us greatly. This diversity is exhibited in not only the style of architectures there, but also in the way people use the space on the South Bank. Through our collage, we aim to illustrate both aspects of the diversity by contrasting post-modern brutalism against classical style as well as Shakespeare (the symbol of Renaissance) against modern objects such as advertisements (standing man). Graffiti is also used to decorate the brutalist architecture. All these diverse objects and buildings form a strange neighborhood across time and across artistic ideas. However, on the South Bank, this strangeness is replaced by harmony among the buildings and among how people use the space.
