Modern? Classic?

Title: Modern? Classical?

Keywords: classical, modern, social

Description: The social housing site that belongs to the Duke of Westminster fascinated us in Day 2. Because the designer of this social housing specialized in classical style, this social housing site is based on modern style while many classical elements are incorporated into it. This collage attempts to illustrate this interesting interaction between modern and classical styles by imposing different images of the social housing sites onto each other. These different elements, including marble carvings and classical-styled doorways, are contrasted against each other, since they are packed to the same architecture, but also form an interesting harmony among themselves.
