The main concerns of this work lie in examining the role of architecture in staging the sensation of the psychological uncanny. This document describes my research and practice since the Proposal was written in 2008.
Central to this enquiry is the notion of the uncanny house - that of my childhood in post-war suburban London. Buildings and lives had been lost and damaged. I attempt in my research to acquaint myself with, and understand, the background to my early years. My memories as the child in the house, together with my later experience of being within built spaces, form the basis of the investigation.
