The design of ‘(R)evolution’ derives from the idea of the ‘NEW’ flourishing from the ‘OLD’. It centres on the technological advancement of art in all aspects - making use of screens, projections and holograms. The building acts as a frame for artwork, not taking away from the art, but rather enriching the experience of the viewer.

The windows on its façade encourage a sense of transparency, engaging the interest of the streetscape. The interior aims to simulate creativity and be a catalyst to social interaction around the artworks on exhibition. Skylights create a play of light and shadows...

‘(R)evolution’ is a triple volume space with a celebrated circulation in the form of an elevator wrapped in circular stairs. This structure is the first thing you encounter when entering the building, and immediately gives you a sense of how to navigate the space.

Process

Various material from Group 4’s design process, and the artworks that inspired (R)evolution.

The artwork of interest focuses on the move through time into a new era where technology is a big part of our lives. The artwork referenced shows three variables that work together to bring information out in a balanced manner… The screen alone shows a slanted picture, yet with the books propping it up the line becomes straight - this can be interpreted as the new era of technology needing support from the old era.

We believe this can create a narrative of where we are headed being supported by where we come from. The books support the screen to tell its story better, showing how the past gives foundation to building the future.
