Van Halm creates sculptures and paints gouaches that breakdown and investigate contemporary domestic architectural obsessions. Her scale models of rooms and her evocative aerial renderings of homes illustrate how leisure, class and social standing are expressed through architecture, demonstrating, for example, that the more expensive the home, the more the design is steeped in nostalgia leaving more modest dwellings to utilize modernist notions of simplicity and utility. Essays by Roberston (author of the ongoing project Office for Soft Architecture) and McKay (professor at the UBC School of Architecture) discuss Van Halm's work as art, architecture, design and popular culture
