Dark Arches

Paula Jankowska


Leeds University

An exploration of the Dark Arches in Leeds, using various media, in order to promote the location and integrate it more into the city life. It’s an individual response to the architecture and the surroundings, focusing on creating a multi-sensory, immersive experience. Taking adaptive reuse and industrial architecture as initial stimuli and using movement around the city as a tool to create a narrative.

The outcome consists of three books – ‘Memories’, ‘Now’ and ‘Unfolding’ – with inserts, alternative city guide and an installation piece.
