Initial diagrams were used to understand the nature of the space prior to intervention.
A uniform ribbon of corten steel freely flows through the warehouse, creating programmatic spaces from its twists, bends, and curves. The project focuses on and details one specific room of that warehouse.
Existing material and intervenion axonometric was developed to emphasize its contrast.
The structure of the ribbon is created with a low-gauge carbon fiber super structure for strong support. The corten panels sandwiched to the structure.
In a refurbished warehouse-turned-museum, a spoken word lounge exists near the shore of a river in Copenhagen. A new installation for this space calls for a stage, seating, and display that complements the historic nature and earthy materials of its context, giving purpose to the spoken word program of the space. To truly admire the space, the juxtaposition of a geometry, shape, feel, and even color combines the languages of a historic pass with the embrace of a bright, vibrant future. Verband emphasizes the resilient strength of human perseverance with the robust strength of corten steel.
A uniform ribbon of steel permeates through the space, visualizing the influence that our words have when they disperse through a room. The ribbon then becomes all parts of the program, including the seating, stage, and shelter space. Constructed from a carbon fiber space frame infrastructure, it also divides the room into an engaging public space, and a contemplation area to admire the statues independently. The ribbon continues throughout the entire building and influences the program within each room separately. It becomes the unifying piece for both human interaction and the existing building.
