Making Enhanced|
History + Design Collective

Helen Kearney

Making Enhanced was a collaboration between historians and designers or architects, working on joint briefs. Exhibiting in the Saatchi Gallery during the Craft Council’s ‘Collect’ exhibition, we displayed our multidisciplinary projects using a group-made house structure, in which we hosted a series of talks. 


Helen was a partner in with the architectural collective PUG, creating work titled, ‘The Pompous and the Populace’. The project combined research, writing, architecture and product design to create a critique about the relationship between design and democracy focusing on the renovation of the Houses of Parliament. Helen and PUG proposed moving the function of parliament onto a specially-designed gothic train operated by Pugin Trains, which would travel around the country during parliamentary sessions and provide a more active, accessible democratic process.
