Hugo Moline & Heidi Axelsen work across architecture, installation, and situated public art. They create site-specific installations, ‘machines for living’ and social infrastructures. Their work has so far included: personalised vehicles, adaptable shelters, handmade maps, edible cities, a story-collecting tea cart and a galvanised-steel park shelter that can predict the weather. These lean devices actively engage people encouraging them to question, understand and act upon the built structures which frame our lives. Moline & Axelsen are the principals of Sydney-based practise MAPA Art & Architecture.
