Floating Architecture @ Tasmeem 3ajeeb in Doha, a diary

Landed in Doha  at VCU Qatar for the extraordinary week of Tasmeem 3ajeeb, together with other extraordinary people to make workshops and lectures, all linked by the ajeeb theme “strange in a strange way, cool in a cool way, and slightly weird in a slightly weird way”.
We arrived with 200 pink swim rings + 850 meters of white tape to create Floating Architecture, a bigger and pink version of the installation made in 2010 for AILATI at the Venice Biennale, a space to stay, to interact with, or a strange pink monster to place in the University.
WP_000631On Sunday the 8th of march we start brainstorming with the students, searching for the best way to make a physical model of this modular and organic architecture, we opt for a form in between a tent and a manta…
WP_000848WP_000694Third day: we start to hang the installation in the main atrium, while a group of students inflate the 200 rings.

Into the screen

Once there was a videogame museum in Rome that we were asked to study…

A3.inddBased on a very simple principle, of a sequence of tables / screen in sequenceA3.inddMarking the different eras of the videogame history, both with the white frame/table and a transparent screen for videoprojections


DET_ANGOLO_defInserted in the thickness of the table/frame the space for the memorabilia, screens and so on…
DET_NINTENDO A project as many others lost in the unpredictable flows of events and some days ago re-emerged from our archives.
