A photographic jaunt taken over the course of four site visits during the construction of a steel frame, Four Visits to Fifty-Two Posts is a publication that documents with sincerity how something can exist after one house and before another.
Across four timelines, a collection of photographs present an array of construction idiosyncrasies often not recorded. The accompanying text follows these escapades by earnestly detailing the frame’s material composition, construction anomalies and spatial operations. In this way, Four Visits to Fifty-Two Posts focuses on the formation of a house by renouncing its final form.
Four Visits to Fifty-Two Posts is a publication by Office MI—JI (architect) and Ben Hosking (photographer).
12.6 x 18.7 cm, softcover, Office MI—JI (Melbourne).
