The Silvertown Ship Breaking Yard by Jonathan Schofield is the creative evolution of place, society and architecture explored through some amazing plans, section, renderings, sketches and models. Through a process of deconstruction the project exposes the hidden potential and future life of the Royal Docks, Silvertown, East London. Ships are broken up and inhabitants of the city are encouraged to reconstruct the pieces into new forms of creative architectural language. A deeper understanding of this project can be appreciated through the writings of Henri Bergson and his philosophical theories on our evolutionary qualities found through creativity.
