Glenn Walls – SUPER CREATIVE GRID

Super – Nothing for Me

Posted in Super - Nothing for Me by Super on February 13, 2021

Nothing for Me centres on redefining the masculine/heterosexual dominance of modernist and not so modernist structures and spaces and present and realigns it with a sexual minority and citizens who would never have access to these forms of architecture. By utilizing the language of modernism that created clean, clinical spaces, free of interpretation, this photographic series counteract the seemingly accepted view of modernist design and continues my interest in how society continues to humanise modernist/minimalist theory and practice to reflect an interpretation of the individual relating to identity and sexuality. 

The photographic works consist of images of my father in front of his house. These images were taken over various years starting in 2011 and is an ongoing project. Each image is juxtaposed with an image of famous modernist houses.

The Plan Voisin is a solution for the center of Paris, drawn between 1922 and 1925 by Le Corbusier. 
The plan for 1925 seems to be a direct transposition of the diagram of Contemporary City for three million 
drawn in 1922. Included are buildings available in a regular orthogonal grid occupying a very important part 
of the right bank of the Seine. The space is highly structured with two new traffic arteries pierced through 
the city, one on the east-west, the other on a north-south. Their role is not limited to the organization of 
Paris, as were the advances of Haussmann: they pass through the fortifications and the suburban area. They 
have the ambition to link the capital to the four corners of the country, the major French and European cities. 
The crossroads at the intersection of these two avenues is the center of the plan, the center of the city 
in central France. (http://densityatlas.org/casestudies/profile.php?id=99)
