Collage/painting featuring stones collected from the Kamo River in Kyoto, Japan.
“I collect mundane things from places I travel to and find ideas to transform them into art. This one resembles a riverbed, a waterfall or a path.”

Time (Orchestra Version) music video
“This is our entry into an international competition run by composer Hans Zimmer to reinterpret his score, ‘Time’, from the film Inception. Our video is a fragmented portrait of a city in lockdown, with themes of isolation, reflection and time running through. We wanted the video to portray the feeling of a fleeting memory, a journey blurred in the passage of time, through the use of multiple locations, a mysterious central figure and various visual effects.”
Initial rendering for a lockdown project that reimagines a tree branch at a larger scale, functioning as a realm for humans to explore and dwell.
“The project explores biomimicry as a way to soften our public realm and embed them in nature.”

Katie Cunningham and Charlie Pye
Winning entry of the International Association of Shell and Spatial Structures’ 2020 sculpture competition. The sculpture is made of six glue-laminated elements with discrete connections, supported with tension cables, and secured to the ground with helical piles. Planning permission is currently pending at Surrey University’s new campus buildings.
“The brief required us to respond to the subject of climate change. The design – created in collaboration with engineer Volodymyr Opanasiuk – is a three-dimensional representation of the deterministic chaos theory, which was developed by Edward Lorenz in the 1960s. It is a call to recognise the fragility of the world we live in. We must appreciate that small actions now, both positive and negative, can lead to vast differences in the future."

The Floating Studio
Illustrations of a floating architecture studio that take inspiration from real-life and fictional floating architecture, from the floating theatre in Venice to Howl’s Moving Castle.
“The design transforms a traditional fishing trawler into a double-height studio space that allows architects to be inspired by their constantly changing surrounding environment, both sea and sky.”
