Olivia is a temporary and multiple uses laboratory. She’s so seductive
that everyone wants to interact with her.
Different activities can take a place inside and outside her round
wall: workshops, informal lectures, debates, theatre pieces and
Her shape creates a promenade offering a tube-game, a performance’s
point, a picnic carpet, a bench, a drinking area and
at the end if you don’t want to enter you can take the stairs and
jump on the ‘roof’.
Olivia’s roof is not only a space for the audience of concert and
presentation, but it’s a space for everybody. It’s transparent. A
string net and a waterproof polyethylene sheet compose it. The
net can be used for lying, sitting, jumping, thinking and speaking.
The polyethylene sheet is waterproofing, it saves life and
it lets light passing. A hole permits natural ventilation. Thanks to
her inclination Olivia doesn’t represent completely closed space
but it opens towards the archive.
