Our “Heracles gets smarter” on display in The Gopher Hole gallery, London


Heracles gets smarter, our entry for the “Project Heracles” call for ideas organized by Domus last weeks will be on display inside the exhibition ‘Project Heracles: 300 ideas on a Euroafrican connection‘ in the Gopher Hole Gallery, London.

The exhibition is the result of a project initiated by Domus magazine, who in turn were inspired by the Arab Spring to invite architects and designers to take vast leaps of geopolitical imagination and create a physical link between Europe and Africa over the Gilbraltar Strait
Hundreds of designs from around the world were sent to Domus & The Gopher Hole as postcards: here is ours (http://spacelab.it/heracles), designed – and internationally patented – by Spacelab Architects featuring Agency Architecture.

Take a look and let us know what you think about it…

Bonus track: as part of the exhibition Project Heracles: 200 Postcards from the Eurafrican Border, launching this Thursday 19 July at London’s The Gopher Hole, Bjarke Ingels/BIG makes a unique contribution: Ingels created two designs for banknotes commemorating the speculative yet all-too-overdue Eurafrican connection that Domus has dubbed Project Heracles. The highest denomination so far of the Euro—the €1,000 note—accompanies a projected new money, the Afro, depicting Egyptian activist and Arab Spring organizer Wael Ghonim. Like the new Euro bill, this imaginary pan-African currency commemorates the construction of the Eurafrican bridge. Learn more in Domusweb.
