Apostrophy’s Billboard House discusses the interface between advertising and architecture, as well as portability and mutability of living spaces. However it is the use of patterned panels which is particularly evocative in building up shifting spaces of visual overlay.

In some ways, despite the positive outlook of the project, these become somewhat reminiscent of the patina comprising layers of mesh, laminates, grill and bar that the Unit witnessed at certain points within the main cell blocks of Alcatraz prison on our SF study trip.
