The architects words:

“The project is about testing the possibilities that ultimately arise with the collapse Iceland has seen. The modern ideological system which governed Iceland in every way has failed and Iceland is now about actualizing opportunities, not admiring false visions. How do designers navigate within this new reality? Are we going to look backwards and let the future happen or are we going to find a way to nevigate forward using what we have at hand? DIY Reykjavik Pavilion is about political controversy, new economy, new technology and community to ask questions about Iceland´s future.”

The architectural framework for an exhibition in Oslo by Fantastic Norway

The architectural framework for an exhibition in Oslo by Fantastic Norway

The Norwegian architects of Fantastic Norway have recently designed the architectural framework for an exhibition in Oslo, displaying young Norwegian design talents. The exhibition open this week end. The installation resembles a large pixilated cloud, constructed by more than 3000 hanging cardboard boxes.

The architects´statement:

‘Being that the exhibition is set to present brand new design objects, we decided to base the architectural concept on the thrill of unpacking. The installation consists of over 3000 hanging cardboard boxes resembling a large pixilated cloud, hovering over the exhibited material. The construction creates a large variety of spaces, from cave like to lifted and open areas, inside the 350m2 exhibition hall. The objects and design concepts are exhibited both inside and outside the boxes.

In an environmental perspective the ambition was to create an exhibition with focus on reuse and low material cost. The cardboard boxes will be recycled at the end of the exhibition, which only leaves wires as leftovers.’

Creating spaces with a minimum of material, this is the aim of the Los Angeles based architects of Ball-Nogues Studio. The temporary outdoor installation ‘Maximilian´s Schell’ – a featherweight shade structure, which casts beautiful, colored fractal light patterns onto the ground – is an impressive example of their strategy.

Ball Nogues invested more than a year into a development process that involved several prototypes, though actual fabrication took only two weeks. The designers achieved their aesthetic effects by manipulating Mylar reinforced with bundled Nylon and Kevlar Fibers on a computer-controlled (CNC) cutting machine. The result was neither a tent-type membrane nor a cable net structure in the manner of Frei Otto, but a unique tensile matrix comprised of 504 different instances of a parametric component or “petal,” each cut and labeled using the CNC system.
