Hostile Bathroom 2019
My hostile bathroom began as a research project into the presence of hostile architecture within London. Hostile architecture was nowhere near as present in my hometown of Sheffield, and i wanted to look into why this approach towards dealing with rough sleepers was so popular with London councils. After talking to rough sleepers, activists and charities, I discovered that a widely ignored aspect of a hostile city is the removal of public amenities as to push rough sleepers out of the central areas, especially through the removal public bathrooms. London presents itself as a concrete desert to those without the finance.

In response to my research, i turned my halls bathroom into an instillation with the intent of drawing attention to these matters. I essentially attempted to remove any form of comfort from the space, as is common practice with hostile design: a toilet where you cannot sit and a shower without privacy.
