Students of the Faculty of Architecture and Design at Aalborg University, Denmark, terminated Art615, a Digital Design Miniproject with a social aim: the art pavilion will be located in a crime-related park in Aalborg, in order to draw attention from the unsafe area, and ensuring the feeling of a safer environment.
The project was achieved with the collaboration of architects, CNC-manufacturing companies, media artists, sociologist and the Danish National Crime preventing council. The workshop encourages research in the crossing between performative formations and interactive light systems.
As well, the 43 students explored the concepts and developments of dynamic architecture and computer-generated geometry. It lead them to explore spatial systems for organizing and articulating new social complexities.
Among 43 projects, the winning one, Art615 will be realized full scale, solely in MDF-wood. Inside the pavilion, three monitors display art from local artists. The lighting creates a picturesque environment inside the pavilion, giving the visitors a chance to “step into the art” itself.
Its main form is focused to create a semi-closed space and emphasize the increasing build-up of the shape from the smaller end to the larger. The surface is then dissected into 32 vertical and 4 horizontal struts, defining a structural waffle-system. The main idea with the outer shell is working with transparency.
“We wanted to work with the inside and outside of Art615 and also make a spatial connection between these two spaces. By perforating the shell, the scales are able take advantage of the displayed light on the inside and at the same time create a visual and audible connection between the two spaces.”
