Always taking a lateral view, the project starts by spreading one dot over 100 sheets of paper, and extruding these as an oblique field of gridded columns; then developing symmetries from a Rorschach test, and remaking these as cast and glazed blue and white triangular tiles; finally composing them into a single, vast sphere cantilevered over Parliament Hill – Boullee meets Buckminster Fuller via Wedgwood. In Semester 2, the Law Courts brief generates at least two and a half conceptual projects: relocating the existing 1980s Law Courts;  wrapping them in an elaborate folded “shroud” designing to highlight, publicise or screen various aspects of the justice system; and finally ‘exporting’ British justice on a boat to its former colonies
