This is an extract from the film "Trawsfynydd", made in collaboration with Emptyset and Clayton Welham.
Developed for Tate Britain's Performing Architecture programme the film was produced inside the decommissioned Trawsfynydd nuclear power station in Snowdownia, North Wales. Designed by the Modernist architect Basil Spence the power station is currently awaiting demolition in 2083 as part of the sites gradual dissolution across the next century. Trawsfynydd continues on from Medium examining a secondary premise within the architectural cycle, shifting from a space never to be completed to one that has instead finished its functional arc and now faces a gradual dissolution. The project considers the site's presence as a shadow that is to be gradually returned to the earth examining the transition of space and what architecture becomes when function is lost. The film sits within a broader body of work titled Material examining wider themes of architecture, nature and recursion.
