Exhibition: Horizon Pavilion at the South Bank, London

Thanks to artist Rob Olins and photographer Anders Gramer great pictures where made of the Horizon Pavilion during its exhibition at the South Bank in London. From February 23rd to April 20th 2012 the Horizon Pavilion featured at a wonderful location on top of one of the terraces of the National Theatre.
The National Theatre is located in between the London Eye, the Hayworth Gallery and Tate Modern.



UP by Droog

Initiated by Droog, UP is an investigative economic model that aims to increase the value of dead stock through re-design. An alternative to recycling and disposal, UP treats leftover goods as raw material for creative re-interpretation in order to bring leftovers back into circulation. Studio Jenske Dijkhuis was asked to brainstorm on a couple of materials and find new applications for these. For this process Alexander Mooi was asked to help and join in, assisting in both the design and execution phase.

Studio Jenske Dijkhuis chose to transform old trespa desktops into a garden fence, referring to the materials use in many building projects.
The typical urban material is now used to create a garden or balcony fence that creates a city skyline at night.

In another design a lamp was created from an old airplane window to give the feeling of the ultraviolet light coming through as it would in a plane that floats in the air.

Are you in or are you out?

The way people claim and use spaces is intriguing. By creating a border, space is defined and given a name and purpose. Both in the private and the public realm these borders define our spatial experience. Are in you or are you out? crosses boundaries by being a physical transition between one place and another. It’s a Tent trailer for the great outdoors, but with a twist. It addresses a strange paradox:
Why do many go out to the countryside and bring a fenced off miniature version of their home comforts? Why do people need the safety of home when going outdoors? Doors, walls or fences are used to define the border between inside and outside, city versus countryside, public versus private, yours versus mine. They imply a culture and feeling of belonging that often accompanies these (invisible) lines. Are you in or are you out? is an effort to make people more conscious of the space they choose to be in and how they interact with it.
