Site Studies is an ongoing visual study which deals with the spaces of built up residential areas within Portsmouth. Using Portsea Island as a Metaphor for Britain’s expansive pressure for the development of vertical expansion due to its limited horizontal periphery and increasingly dense population. Focusing on the architecture of the time where rapid erection of residential developments were necessary to cope with and cater for the basic human needs; in rehoming the devastated population during a time where the optimist of Socialism reigned. This project seeks to explore and pay homage to the surviving architectural embodiments of the postwar social housing motives, studying the remarkable spaces created from this movement in isolation of who and how it is lived.
