"The studio is working on the development of what we are calling "ghostly" architectural characteristics (through the design of a museum). The interest is in studying the possibility of both material effects (for example, multiple readings through layering and reflectivity -with something like Mies' Friedrichstrasse or H&D's switching station as the model) as well as the more caricatured figural associations that the term conjures (smoke, curtains, Casper, for example). Among the things being explored are - the nuanced "doubling" of the original, multiple readings of the same object, ephemeral material effects, i.e. fleeting effects and blurred edges."
