Section106 is proposing to create a unique temporary structure to be the venue for the exhibition in December 2015. A World Expo type building, it will have several functions. Built out of a simple industrial style scaffoloding, the building will support as an outer shell an eclectic arrangement of emergency housing units sourced from different companies specializing in this field from around the world.
The outer shell of this structure has both functional and aesthetic roles. Some of the units will be used as additional exhibition spaces and some will be used solely as part of the structural outer shell. The units’ presence within the Section106 event represent issues beyond the sole topic of art, reflecting back to global problems such as global warming and displaced populations.
