ROCOR (MDF) NLS

Flatpack school redux. A Russian Orthodox faith school, church and community centre in Harringay. The Orthodox Church is at the centre of Russian life: religion, education and community have come together as the spine of the population, and are deployed here in an emerging migrant worker community.

Constructed entirely from MDF, inherently fragile and responsive to change when exposed to weather and use, the building acts a barometer for shifting policies and politics on a local, national and international scale by being in a constant state of construction, decay and repair to counter erosive effects of occupation and to prepare for future use.
