A bursting bubble, tumbling stocks, bears, bulls and futures for sale. Modern markets are obscure, unpredictable and dangerous places. But they also dictate whether you have access to necessities like toilet paper and water, whether your job will still exist tomorrow and whether you can buy a cup of Columbian light roast on your morning commute or not. To get what you want, you have to navigate the flow of trade and exchange. Sell what you have – your labor, your possessions, your first-born child – and buy what you can. Everyone does it. So how do you? Which markets are you a part of? What are you buying? What are you selling? And at what price?

“Graphic designers are now becoming more and more specialised. We must explain our business, give people the keys to understand what graphic design is, what its role is, what are the rules… France is culturally attached to writing and it would be good to give greater attention to the image and its understanding.”

This project imagines a future in which Google enters the construction industry with a pilot housing scheme in Abbey Wood. Utilising opensource technologies and global data analytics (and adhering to the opensource principle of individual customisation), residents are offered a choice of components from the vast onsite SketchUp Warehouse. This model therefore promises to address the housing crisis through providing exactly what the market demands. This project is part of the Royal College of Art Show 2015 – sweeping up the student award at New London Architecture and is now being exhibited at the Building Centre in Bloomsbury, London, until 17 SEP, 2015.
