The crit highlighted the importance of emphasising the central aspect of the gesture – vertical and horizontal. The plinth is expressed as a horizontal element that is raised vertically, elevating the meat and exposing the process.
As the design process moves from contextual gestures to finer detail, it is advised that the biopolitics of the proposed abattoir are explored and established through drawing.
