Spacelab is featured in a thirty seconds video in the 2010 Venice Biennale, inside the stunning Fehn’s Nordic Pavilion.
“30S” is a crowdsourced video installation project by AGENCY, selected to exhibit at the Nordic Pavilion, acting as ambassadors for SUPERFRONT-NY in collaboration with At Work With.
Thanks to the AGENCY founders Ersela Kripa and Stephen Mueller, who kindly invited us to contribute, we are in pole position in the continuous, looping Youtube playlist: a still-life of our workspace during last weeks (“Purple Haze” in the background was an unexpected – and uncut – phone call during the filming of the video…). In the words of Ersela Kripa: “The idea is to highlight the every day, mundane, and quotidian of architecture, and what it takes to make architecture”.
The installation will be exhibited inside the Nordic Pavilion fromOct 19 to Nov 22 2010. Enjoy!
The Spacelab Firm has a brand logo.
At first sight it’s an iconic mark, an hexagon with a curious white picture inside.
But it’s also an open cube in axonometric view, containing an X-Y-Z diagram (as architects, Space is our daily subject). Origin and ends of the axes are four “entities” – cubes too, representing the four founders of Spacelab Architects, directly connected each other.
Down in the hexagon, the words “Spacelab Architects” in a dry and objective Helvetica font.
All others recalls to sci-fi, or to the space-modules collective imagination are, I swear, unintentional. Or it isn’t so?
