Xintiandi, Shanghai | Winter Festival | KTGA
 
100architects was commissioned to develop an interactive installation for the Winter Festival 2015 of KTGA (Kick the Gong Around), a company specialized in organizing immersive events and festivals as Narrative Environments, physical or virtual spaces in which stories can unfold.

The project took place in an unfinished structure of a shopping mall right in Shanghai downtown, at Xintiendi, one of the most glamorous streets of China.
The unfinished mall opened its doors for becoming a semipublic space to host the KTGA winter festival 2015.

For this specific event, KTGA and the event sponsor, PERRIER WATER, requested us to create a vivid journey across detailed spaces, building a unique experience that would remain in visitors minds forever.

In order to achieve that, we reinterpreted the concepts of installation and interactivity. On one hand, morphing the proposal from a simple installation into a people’s attractor, catching the attention of visitors, and on the other hand, running away from trendy high-tech interactions, and, instead, focusing on a simplistic vivid journey across spaces as generator of the attraction itself, reducing the meaning of journey to its bare minimum: the path you journey through.

Therefore, the installation was conceived as a signage project, but rather than concentrating it on the destinations (different spaces across the venue which one could reach), we opted for emphasizing the paths themselves, creating unique visual experiences for each path, prioritizing the enjoyment of the way over the destination.

Seeking to maximize the visual impact, the project was displayed in both, 2D and 3D paths combined together, beginning with a three-dimensional sculptural signage, which would colonize the central void of the venue to make it visible from any place, and materialized with colored nylon strings. Those strings would provide first hints about destinations to reach.

Once the 3D stripes collide with the floor, they become a two-dimensional splash of vivid colors invading the whole floor with funny and intriguing patterns that would provide second hints about the destinations. Those 2D stripes were materialized with PVC vinyl stuck on the floor.

    A excellent article. My husband and I run a diving center in Cyprus. We want to offer something more than diving to our customers, something different, thought provoking, unique and absolutely appealing. Open to any ideas? Complimentary refreshments already a given…

Interior Intervention

What is an interior intervention?
It is the type of intervention that takes place in an indoor space, related to the altering of buildings and other spatial configurations, by inserting or installing new alienated elements within an existing interior environment.
 
This typology requires a careful adaptation to the context, the form and the structure of the host space, in other to proceed with a surgical or parasitic intervention that revamps the attributes of the space, changing completely the way it is perceived and used by its users.
 
Usually, this tactical intervention is based on the colonization of the existing surfaces of the space, without altering the three-dimensional configuration of the building. By coating or covering the existing surfaces or even by inserting alien objects, placed on top of the existing surfaces, we are able to add aesthetical and programmatic features that can enhance the functionality of the interior space.
