Just so f***ing beautiful

Just so f***ing beautiful

MADA lecturers Nicole Kalms and Gene Bawden have created Just so f***ing beautiful for exhibition in TIME – SPACE – EXISTENCE – a Venice Architecture Biennale satellite show.

The work is based on feedback from a participant in a recent study into Melbourne’s urban spaces. The participant reported having the phrase whispered to her by a passerby while walking through the city.

Nicole explains, “Architecture and design directly impact how people experience cities and public spaces. These experiences can be inspiring and uplifting, or isolating and terrifying. As this work shows, the impact of the built environment and our experiences stay with us long after we have left.

“Architects, designers, town planners and the community more broadly have the ability – and responsibility – to ensure our cities and spaces consider the perspectives and safety of all users.”
