Nigel Coates presents a fake digital design program in which the traditional architectural views have been replaced by Place, Use, Narrative/sign, and Situation. His Ecstacity project, including a series of large paintings, is meant to propose a London developing with a more responsive type of architecture, in a process closer to biology. The project proposes that every building should be mandated to devote 10% to what Coates calls “intermediary architecture.” Coates shows some of his furniture designs including the Tongue Chair and his early work as examples of his interest in how classical furniture incorporates animal parts.
