#ODA are delighted that Chris Johnson has recently joined our increasingly busy and growing team as a Part 2 Architectural Assistant.
Chris has recently graduated with a Distinction from Newcastle University and we present an example of his final year Thesis work, the Liminclave.
“Situated along the Irish Border, the Liminclave confronts the challenges of physical infrastructures caused by geo-political borders in rural landscapes. Through artistic studies of the Border, drawn as if viewed by a Cow, the project questions the reality of international borders in a future of climate and political change. Based within a ‘Liminal Space’, the project depicts a fictional transformation of a cattle bridge into a structure based in between the border. Within the Liminclave, everyday activities and local businesses lost in a ‘Hard Border’ can survive, forming around the creation of a cross border assembly, the Border People’s Parliament.”
