IMA Exhibition


The pavilion’s interior in its refurbished status is enriched by fluid forms that structure the torus-like exhibition loop and therefore differentiate the visitor’s tour. The aim is to utilize the existing quality of the sculpted internal walls and space divisions to enhance the visitor’s experience and provide rhythmical spatial sequences for a sensually differentiated walk-through.

The design refers to geometries and matheamtics of minimal surfaces. Minimal surfaces, or Optimal geometries, are surfaces with a mean curvature of zero. Minimal surfaces are equivalently described as one that is equally bent in all directions so as to have zero average curvature, and can be understood as the surfaces of smallest area spanning […]

This is a table sculpture that splits into 4 elements: tea pot, coffee pot, milk jar and sugar pot. Like a three-dimensional puzzle, the pieces fit together to form a whole. They sit within a tray that guides the user through the multiple configurations, the form changing according to whether or not the set is […]

A fluid form of curvilinear geometry, the Scoop is a continuation of the morphological design language Zaha Hadid has explored and developed over the past three decades. Whilst at first appearing unscripted and spontaneous, the total fluidity of the Scoop’s volume follows the overriding formal logic of Hadid’s research into systems of continuous transformations and […]

Aura


The architecture of Andrea Palladio represents the built manifestation of Palladio’s utopia of synthesizing all humanistic values by establishing theexact role and relation of each part of his architectural compositions – from the organism as a perfect whole to each single room. The proportion ofeach room is in fact determined by a specifi c set of “harmonic“ relations that derive […]
