Meltdown (1997)


Client: Newcastle Upon Tyne Eco Centre

Location: South Shields, Newcastle Upon Tyne, U.K.

Materials: Recycled glass bottles, steel, double glassed units.

Brief: Open / Wind Break


A collaboration with Rachel Joynt.
This porch/windbreak took the form of a ‘greenhouse’ like steel frame containing panels of slumped and fused bottles sealed in double glazed units.
The overall effect is of a semi transparent cascade of brown, green and clear bottles composing down to an organic state.
