Kintsugi City [RCA_MA ARCHITECTURE_2019_ADS11]

The beauty in our city lies in its imperfections. Fractured streets of London remind us of this, broken pavements revealing our traces of life. The intervention aims to highlight the natural cycle of use and decay through infilling these cracks with an illuminating gold. We can learn to celebrate the defected city, to draw attention to the beauty of the existing through its repair, rather than replacement.
