Huntly Street\ Footscray is the record of a recent project by the Melbourne architecture practice Mirror Systems. Mirror Systems specialises in the Customised Architectural Resolution Of Anomalous Metropolitan Atmospheres in the Nebulous Melbourne Complex.
Huntly Street\ Footscray demonstrates that the inhabitation of Melbourne’s vague and unresolved spaces requires surgical skills operating with specific neologisms, syntaxes, and aesthetic exactitude. In an age of catastrophic metropolitan overproduction, Mirror Systems argues that organised theorems of restraint constitute seductive and virtuous paradigms.
Huntly Street\ Footscray is a collaboration between Mirror Systems and the graphic designer Luke Brown, portraying a restitution in architectural communications bearing the caprice and amnesia of digital media consumption.
