PANKOF BANK

From 2005-07 Sam Causer collaborated with artists Simon Fujiwara and Manon Awst, working together under the name Pankof Bank.  Our work drew upon a diverse background of practices including architecture, visual arts, texts, teaching and performance.  Through the act of construction, Pankof Bank aimed to explore ways to communicate the complexity of social and political issues that arise in the act of making architecture.  The process of transformation and use of spaces they constructed was continuously documented to expose the complexity, energy and personal connections formed in the making of a place for functions as simple as dining, or bathing. By drawing upon existing resources, including human relationships, they explored the possibility of a more immediate and connected way to build and consume.


Operating directly in and learning from the field of architecture, their physical experiments not only question the ways in which our public spaces, cities, institutions and homes are procured and made, but act as ‘protests’ against the increasing control, sensual deprivation and commercialisation of designed space.

“Extremely interesting architectural provocateurs…

Charming, energetic and sharply intelligent.  I'm certain they're on to something.”
