Junya Ishigami: Architecture as Air
Venue: The Curve. The Barbican, Londres. 28 June 2011 - 16 October 2011.
For his first installation in the UK, he conceived a new structure built in response to The Curve’s unique space, which he describes as ’melting endlessly into space’. The structure comprises a single curved line of delicate 4 metre columns running the entire length of the gallery, which appear to be held in place by air and atmosphere alone. Only on close inspection are the transparent structural components revealed.
This work is a development of his experimental installation Architecture as air: study for château la coste, which was first shown at the Venice Biennale of Architecture in 2010 and won the Golden Lion for best project.
