Poché, a term used in architectural drawings to describe solid elements such as walls, partitions and the void inside these structures, typically appears hatched in a solid colour on building plans, sections and details. Through this installation, we explore another way in which space and poché can be formed, based on human habitation as opposed to structural representation. We suggest this human presence carves out the positive space and thus, renders the remaining space as an extension of the building’s poché. By exploring the traditional borders of the poché, we question the relationships between human space, scale, form and structure.
