The Los Angeles Hop Printworks was designed to investigate the relationship between ephemeral processes and surface structures. The building over the course of four years, dried and soaked imported hops for use in LA's brewing industry. This process would gradually embed itself on the replaceable zinc panels of the floor and internal walls, which in turn would become external cladding, in an ongoing operation.  Click images to enlarge.
