"Your twenties, whether you choose to be an architect or not, are crucial years that greatly impact life thereafter. Whether you are able to live your impressionable twenties with vigilance will determine if you will be able to live the life you desire by the time you reach your forties and fifties."

- Tadao Ando, Conversations With Students, p.16

OSA/Merzen at CUBE Manchester 
As part of the ongoing Manchester Merzman festival, the Office for Subversive Architecture have begun an ambitious reinterpretation of the interior of the Manchester Centre for the Urban Built Environment. 
A celebration of the German artist Kurt Schwitters and his influential ‘Merz’ form of collage art, the OSA’s construction makes use of found materials to subvert the dominant framework of the gallery and blur the line between installation and architecture.

Mezquita, Cordoba
This beautiful mosque was designed to give the illusion of spatial infinity. In its original configuration the interior was open to a courtyard full of trees, allowing light to spill through its 850 columns and make them appear like an extension of the trees themselves. Without any physical landmarks inside the visitor would be immersed inside what seemed a never-ending expanse of shadows and echoes.
