Art Fund Pavilion competition – submission for cre8architecture

artfund-boards-1-mini

The objective of The Art Fund Pavilion architecture competition is to provide The Lightbox in London with a semi-permanent summer pavilion which will sit alongside their RIBA award-winning building by Marks Barfield Architects.

This is one of the two entries submitted by cre8architecture.

The concept of the pavilion is to experiment with a developmental pattern in the evolution of an organism, to let spontaneous forces go without mediation. This results into an organic structure that wraps itself with a protective membrane. The main structure is a plywood frame assembled into ribs-like elements in a 200x400mm perpendicular grid. Ribs depth & thickness are integral and adjustable parameters of the model.

Clydebank Canopy – RIAS competition

Posted in Competition by pierre forissier on October 1, 2008


Clydebank Canopy – RIAS competition – submission for cre8architecture

Our response to the Clyde Rebuilt / RIAS Competition brief was to extract a shape from Clydebank’s ship-building heritage and abstract it into a dynamic new form that energises the canal.

A myriad of interpretations exist … flower petals, leaves, feathers, propellers, vertebrae – we see a beautiful sculptural form that glides across water.

The canopy takes the ship propeller as an initial point of reference and abstracts the form through sinuous lines to reflect motion, rotation and cover. The apparent complexity of the canopy belies the simplicity of the repeated form.
