Whiteread’s studio on Bethnal Green Road and Geosynthetics

Whiteread chose to buy and convert a deconsecrated synagogue at the same time as she was surrounded by controversy over the creation of the Judenplatz Holocaust memorial in Vienna.
The extended and remodelled building provided Whiteread, her partner Marcus Taylor and their growing family, with an apartment, library and roof terrace at roof level.  The main body of the building accommodates workshops, studios, storage and an archive for the artists’ work.

Looking for a something -a skin, a shell- that I can use as a separator between the building and the city of the Dead above, especially now that I am bringing soil..
