Chinese investment prompts the transitory integration of hydraulic fracturing within Blackpool, for the exploitation of shale gas. An unconventional approach towards hydraulic fracturing instigates urban regeneration and provides a framework which cultivates new industries, generates sustainable water systems and induces renewable methods of energy production.
Thirty-five fracking stations are integrated and a sustainable offshore community is constructed to offset effected communities. During fracking the station serves as a platform from which shale gas can be extracted, processed and distributed.
Over an 80 year timespan, the project speculates the transformation of Blackpool from an industrial Petropolis, to a less resource dependent and decentralized sustainable city. Industrial infrastructure once used for hydraulic fracturing is repurposed to process energy crops and grey water from the region. As a method of urban regeneration, the legacy plan aims to enhance socio-economic and well-being opportunities for communities in Blackpool.

Mister Mourao (aka Vasco Mourao) is a Portuguese architect turned into a freelance illustrator with (as he explains) “a tendency for obsessive drawing“. His methodical and detailed illustrations represent real or invented structures and buildings always from different perspectives. The buildings are sometimes exploded or distorted, fragmented and reassembled. The simplicity of the black line contrasts with the richness of the compositions.

Airtight Encryption, Fragmentation, Dissonance, Self-Contradiction, Anti-Humanism: all words that ring out of Sroka’s self-defined deconstructionist roots. Sroka’s drawings slip in and out of legibility; he blurs, sharpens, quotes, and layers. His drawings appear to be considerations of architectural questions more so than statements.

What if the houses done by some of the most famous architects would have been think inside a cube?
The idea was to deform and stretch the houses made by the most known architects, to put them inside a cub, and then to reveal what make them so singular, starting by the choice they made concerning the proportion of their houses, but also all the decisions they took to make these house so unique and famous.
