Paper Gentlemen is the collaboration between three masters of architecture students studying at the University of Dundee. Out of the material studio a group of three has come together as a collective. A collaboration formed from a dynamic of differing agendas, we all strive for a common architectural ideal.
Our approach is direct. Through city integration it is the collaborations agenda to become immersed into the role of site specific activists.
Becoming antagonists it is our intention to force the city into considering itself a rapidly decaying entity. The collaborative will identify, select and highlight the degraded, ignored and redundant spaces and present them as models of regeneration or, where appropriate, collapse.
