A collaborative project with Aedes International Forum for Architecture, Berlin
Exhibition from May 17 to July 04, 2013
Aedes am Pfefferberg, Berlin
Within the scope of the design seminar Grid Structures a group of 23 students from FHD Düsseldorf University of Applied Sciences, Faculty of Design, developed spatial concepts based on the notion of grid and network structures: open spatial interfaces for the exhibition Smart Cities – The Next Generation at the Aedes Architectural Forum in Berlin. The seminar consisted of two phases: phase 1 - analysis, experiments and spatial concepts and phase 2 - realisation. The selected exhibition structure "Klettwerk" consists of spatial lines that are made out of Velcro tape, tensed up into Aedes´ gallery space. The interlocking and joining of those black linear ribbons provides an levitating open grid-and city-like structure, an open space that is both continuous and multi-directional. The line´s materiality (hook-and-loop band) and its geometrical manifestation in space offers opportunities for visitors to perform, to participate, to change.
