Our idea of the new A4 Arts Foundation structure was inspired by Igshaan Adams and Kyle Morland’s ‘Stoflike Oorskot’ 2016, Walter Battiss’ ‘My Typewriter’, and mainly Turiya Magadlela’s ‘My womb is at fault’, 2014.

Our concept to make it resemble a womb, both internally and externally, lead to the idea of having a  circular and earthy façade, and on the inside be spacious and seem of a different dimension.

Process

In a discussion concurrent to #unleash, APG lecturer Sonja Spamer spoke about the womb as the greatest threshold - this ignited a conceptual idea for us in relation to Turiya Magadlela’s ‘My womb is at fault', 2014. Initially we planned to have no windows within the building as “windows aren't essential in a museum, the art­works are”.

The idea was to make it an adventurous space. Using elliptical shapes, an early concept to use a tent-like structure was connected with the ‘womb’ inspiration - a compelling threshold leading into a large ambiguous space.
