The installation comprises 2 almost identical red ribbons that serve different purposes. Each section has a defined function intended for one type of user. which are carefully bent in order to create an artificial and continuous topographical profile providing activities such as seating features, swinging objects, sliding ramps, slopes and mini amphitheaters among others.

Taking advantage of the highest bends of the ribbons, green & blue functional boxes were plugged-in as add-on capsules with playful slopes within.

Both ribbons are confronted to each other, almost creating an infinite symbol, resulting with 2 different enclosed areas for EDUTAINMENT (education + entertainment). The green area is intended for educative workshops and performances, while the blue area is more focused on educative games and entertainment.

The project was designed as an indoor activation of the public space within the main atriums, generating a meeting & entertainment spot for social interactions at the heart of the retail space, visible from all the floors, encouraging the gathering and interaction of people.

The Twin Ribbons not only create an eye-catching cyclical platform as a challenging path to be traveled by jumping, climbing, sliding and crawling up and down. It also provides functional shapes to host different adult-related activities, such as speeches, workshops, performances, etc…

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.
