Rintala Eggertsson Architects: Installation as LaboratoryTues 29 June 2010 6.30pm
Join us for a workshop-style evening of ideas, inspiration, and discussion with Finnish-Norwegian architects Rintala Eggertsson.
Organised in collaboration with the V&A for the V&A Connects... programme strand.
What happens when architecture becomes installation art? Does it expand the traditional scale model’s demonstrative reach to a navigable human scale? Does it exist to translate the utopic digital rendering to the third dimension? Or does it become something else? How can the installation be used to further spatial investigations that can later be played out on a larger, building scale? Are these polemic attempts to position architecture within the plastic arts, or extensions of discursive and curious architectural minds, keen to explore the limits of the discipline with new models of function and form?
Join celebrated Finnish-Norwegian architects Rintala-Eggertsson for a workshop-style evening of ideas and inspiration. Beginning with a presentation of their site specific installation for 1:1 Architects Build Small Spaces, Sami Rintala and Dagur Eggertsson will go on to explore the relationship of their buildings to their installation and exhibition work.
The evening will continue with a live brief for the workshop participants, who will have the hands-on opportunity to collectively contribute to the architects’ next project – a set of structures fit for Unstad's surfing community, built on the Lofoten peninsula, Norway.
