The Trojan Project

Part 1 Project 2020

Inspired by the Guilds of London, The Trojan Project is a critical examination of the balance of power in modern society. By corrupting and rigging our socio-economic and political systems in their favour, the elite ruling class’s wealth and influence over our society’s values continues to grow rapidly. They launder their criminal white-collar money and activities through fake philanthropic foundations and convince the public that they are society’s saviours. The project exaggeratedly showcases this duality between criminality and philanthropy; serving as the criminal head quarters of the Trojan Guild while masking itself to the public as a charity foundation, serving and merging the two opposite but parallel programs. The Trojan Guild itself is a fictional guild, symbolic of the elite ruling class more broadly. Three main structures – The Trojan HQ, The Leader’s Suite and The Trojan Gallery – form the basis of the masterplan. A set of smaller architectural and landscaping features such as the Trojan Plaza and the hydroponic community garden complement the masterplan and contribute to hiding the guild in plain sight.
