Foundations of Masculinity (Gender contained within architectural vessels)

This project shows the transference and containment of masculinity through architecture. Furthermore, the investigation of how gender representation and psychoanalytic theory is represented and presented through the phallic shape. The phallus being an inherited symbol of power and dominance. The images in this project materialise the concept of phallic masculinity, focusing on buildings of power and dominance. It exposes the vulnerability and confusion masculinity possesses. Through the containment of the architecture follows the entrapment of the social norm. The extensions and abstraction of the symbolic power, both reinforce the power by making them bigger, but also destabilize them as they are not strong and secure.
