Series: The Allegory

Developed for Ronald McDonald House, a 'home away from home' for families with hospitalised children, Lean II presents the framework of a supporting structure. Two I's lean against each other, balanced on a white field, rendering both a primary human need for emotional and spiritual support, and the physical shelter and protection provided by Ronald McDonald House. In construction terms, 'Lean-to' refers to a sloping roof addition built onto one side of an existing structure, typically to accomodate a growing family. Clean, white and glazed, Lean II expresses the human condition within a clinical context.
