The Malleable Space Pavilion by Michael jantzen studio

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015

Article source: Michael jantzen studio

The Malleable Space Pavilion is an experimental interactive structure made from a system of components that allow for a wide variety of spacial configurations that range from symmetrical simplicity, to chaotic complexity. The pavilion consists of 192 white colored horizontal elements that are held into place by two gray vertical support columns. Each support column contains 96 of the elements, and each is held into place separated from the others on tracks, which allow all of them to be easily moved back and forth.

Theatre 95 in Cergy-Pontoise, France by gpaa

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015

Article source: GPAA

The challenges of the project

The contractor’s definition of the project is articulated around a close link between reshaping the Théâtre 95, outlining an urban morphology, and finding free spaces in the urban island.The theatre’s extension is framed by a dialectic vision of interactions between town and theatre: the theatre stretches beyond its limits while the town must find in it a porous space, a space of journeys, echoes, dreams, encounters and everyday life, devoted to contemporary modes of expression and deliberately placed at the very heart of the town.
