Title: Modern Social Housing
Keywords: symbiotic, rich, poor
For this image, we used the glass windows, often seen as a symbol of the ‘modern’, and juxtaposed it against the checkered public housing. This was inspired by Prof Dennis, who spoke to us about the symbiotic relationship between the rich and the poor. In the same way, our manipulated image seeks to portray this interweaving relationship of the rich and poor. In the built environment, they may be well apart; but in reality, they are truly mutually constituted. The reality of the rich needing the services of the poor is thus seen by how the lifestyle of the rich, represented by the glass structures, is only maintained by the stable base of the poor, represented by the public housing.
