The (Not)Architecture projects use an adaptation of ancient building methods that have recently been used as alternative ‘green’ building practices in which earth is packed into forms. When left un-plastered, objects built using this method recall geological or archeological strata. What is in fact seen in these strata, however, is a record of the production of the work and how it changes as the material – commercially available potting soil - dries, hardens and cracks over the course of an exhibit.
