DESCRIPTION:


This ephemeral architecture is the common ground between architecture and art.


This is not only artwork but also a first Zipper Architecture in the world.


This unique work, exhibited at the Kobe Biennial 2013 in Japan, has been designed to please the eye and meet easy-assembly requirements, zipping any of it’s components to the next one making a perfect art piece that changes as you walk inside of it. It is also like a human kaleidoscope.


The relationship between the structure itself and the visitors is quite close, since anyone can open or close any of its parts as if it was a window. The intention of this work is to show anyone how architecture can be also, lightweight and mobile. To achieve it we have to find new technology, Zipper is one of possibility. Although assembling was completed in 4 hours, a problem did not occur at all during the two months of the exhibition.
