There is a strong correlation between the current cotton gloved approach to the preservation of Historical Architecture, and the overarching regulatory restrictions suffocating Sydney’s nightlife. 

This project reimagines the remaining buildings of the Bedford Brickworks (St Peters) as a catalyst for the exploration of both physically and metaphorically un-surfacing the cities desires through a subterranean labyrinth theatre of experience. 

The experience is orientated downwards, to the hidden and the secret. The architecture becomes a social condenser, by creating a socially equitable space, a labyrinth to loosen up and explore the subconscious and unconscious parts of the city.
