The project title was Ornamentism and was actually a fairly broad topic that was begging for interpretations for all angles. My group mates and I decided to take the meaning of Ornamentism and look beyond the surface of the word itself. Amidst this process we realized that when people mention Ornamentism, often what we fail to notice is the system that gives rise to the Ornamentism and thus makes it possible in the first place, and when you look at it in detail, is actually a form of Ornamentism on it’s own and arguably a far more beautiful one on top of being functional. We drew inspiration from motherboards of computers, the inside of a clock, the mechanics behind a piano and thus “gave birth” to our child, our project Modus Operandi. There is always more than meets the eye. Modus Operandi explores this idea by providing not only an appealing facade on the outside but also a look into the inside of the system, the one that keeps the process going, the heart that pumps the blood to keep the body alive, the Ornamentism that matters. 
This project was for a visual studies course in Sci-Arc.

'Fictional Constructs' establishes a seamless hyper-real fantasy world where a series of design interventions reveal various levels of deceptions of scale, time and place. The site is Kraftwerk located in the centre of Berlin - a former industrial power station, built approximately at the same time of the Berlin Wall between 1960-64.The design proposes a new open film studio/public space that constantly evolves, grows and performs, acts and expands, merging the boundaries between the everyday and the iconic, the real city and its representation in film. https://vimeo.com/95659081
Kairo Baden-Powell is an architectural designer, based in London.  He is interested in digital prototyping and the potential of fabricating buildings to the same level of precision as the aviation industry.  His fascination in the potential of heterotopic, hyper-real spatial imagery explored in the film industry translates into unique work that is on the edge of fact and fiction.

FRACKPOOL: The Legacy of Hydraulic Fracturing in Blackpool
Jason Lamb / M.Arch / The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL / Advisors: CJ Lim and Bernd Felsinger / July 2014
New Pier Construction Urban Agriculture and Water Integration
Chinese investment prompts the transitory integration of hydraulic fracturing within Blackpool, for the exploitation of shale gas. An unconventional approach towards hydraulic fracturing instigates urban regeneration and provides a framework which cultivates new industries, generates sustainable water systems and induces renewable methods of energy production. Thirty-five fracking stations are integrated and a sustainable offshore community is constructed to offset effected communities. During fracking the station serves as a platform from which shale gas can be extracted, processed and distributed. Over an 80 year timespan, the project speculates the transformation of Blackpool from an industrial Petropolis, to a less resource dependent and decentralized sustainable city. Industrial infrastructure once used for hydraulic fracturing is re-purposed to process energy crops and grey-water from the region. As a method of urban regeneration, the legacy plan aims to enhance socio-economic and well-being opportunities for communities in Blackpool.
