In Birmingham city centre, builders from R.Bau and local construction apprentices simultaneously constructed and deconstructed a series of five-metre high house shells using new dry-assembly construction techniques. By completion of the project, two separate structures reminiscent of interlocking terraces had been built in the same place at the same time.

The build and deconstruction of house-birmingham was captured in a short film and as a series of long-exposure photographs.

House-birmingham was curated by Jonathan Watkins and Nigel Prince IKON Gallery, Birmingham
