AD ARCHITECTURE as Architects

The project is a temporary exhibition space for displaying paintings and kitchen products — two things that areunlikely to be exhibited in one space. By focusing on how toperfectly integrate the two in a 60㎡space and evokedialogue with visitors, we createdan"art gallery" that integratedimpressive, diversified experiences.Considering the dense crowd of visitors, weutilized triangular structures to segment the space, to create a free yet directive setting. The goal was to guide the smooth flow of visitors and create a free visiting route with a rich sense of rhythm. 

 

This exhibition space was situated in a large exhibition hall with lots of exhibition stands andvariousdisplayed products. It neededtostrengthen its identity at the larger space and to impress, surprise visitors. We brought red stone pieces to the floor, whichsenta signal of danger andsurprisesto draw visitors' attention.The metal walls featured wrinkled textures,creating a strong visual impact. The glass was customized, which enriched the layering of the space and evoked visitors' curiosity to explore the space and exhibits. Allof those elements wereintended tobringunexpected surprises, so as to efficiently help the brands to attract and impress visitors.

 

As visitors moved in the space, the triangular mirrored glass showed varying images by reflection. It reflectedindividuals, others, objects, changing scenes and what weregoing on in the space. The mirror images had nothing to do with form, function or aesthetics, and everyone might have different understandings. There was no definite answer.It wasa five-day game, and wewerejust experiencers and observers.Strolling in the space, visitors could feel the changing relationship between the real and virtual.This is a temporary space,but for us what matters isthe process.
