Roof on Roof

2014

– Installation, Documentation and Fictional Marketing Material

Roof on Roof is a play on the juxtaposition of vernacular and modern building practices. By attempting the solve the leaks caused by the modern flat roof and air conditioning units by using age-old shingled pitch roof construction, it tries to raise questions about displacement, construction industry, consumerism, functionality, practicality, longevity and nostalgia.

The projects consists of the installation of eight tiny roofs on the roof of Star Store coinciding with the spots marked by the maintenance crew on a leak chart, the documentation of this installation and the placement of flyers for a fictional roofing around throughout the common spaces in the building.
