Berlin-based artist Olafur Eliasson, conceptualised Your House. The book, designed in 2006 by Michael Heimann and Claudia Baulesch, is a limited-edition artist’s book with a laser-cut negative impression of Eliasson’s house in Copenhagen. Each of the 454 pages are individually cut and corresponds to 2.2 cm of the actual house.

Commissioned by the Library Council of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, Your House is a remarkable arrangement of cutouts and imagery presented in a minimalist yet technical format. Readers gradually build a physical and mental narrative, whilst also examining the perceptual and spatial experience of domestic architecture of the house.

Although I haven’t had the pleasure of reading one of the 225 printed copies (perhaps one day), I love of the combination of sculpture and architecture and the illusion of being inside the house.


Threatened with closure since a failed application for listed building status by English Heritage, Preston’s famous bus station – considered one of the largest in Europe – is one of those pieces of architecture that will forever polarise opinion. Considered by many as “ugly” yet heralded by others for it’s utilitarian elegance… Capturing its current state – darkly depressing with a melancholic beauty, much like the setting of a Shane Meadows film – Jonathan Kenyon, has delicately captured the bleak rawness of the concrete behemoth.
