The city can be looked upon by us as a machine which

processes people’s movements efficiently and mechanically. Beneath the aesthetically appealing skin of the city, are spaces through which thousands of commuters, shoppers and sightseers are directed and channelled. Within these spaces the romance and delight of travel are lost to the mundane imperatives of safety and convenience. Movement from place to place becomes at once a pleasureless and an automatic act. I want to explore the way in which the architecture of these spaces serves to order and focus our movements, depriving us to some degree of our autonomy.
