The temporary environment of this informal lounge has been created with 160 modules made entirely of cardboard.
Each module weights approximately 1kg and is connected to other modules with dry joints. No screws or nails have been used in the assemblage of the whole.
The project brief called for an environment that had to last for less than one week and represent the Architecture profession.
All components are completely flat-packed.
No construction waste has been produced after dismantling, since all the material has been completely recycled after its use, minimising construction waste and...leaving behind only good memories!Draisci Studio won a competition to design an eye-catching and vibrant visitor lounge occupying 200m² area in a prime position in the Olympia exhibition hall. The space embodied the partnership between the leading property show MIPIM UK and the RIBA, Royal Institute of British Architects.
Draisci Studio poetically re-interpreted R.I.B.A. acronym as Romantic Individually Beautiful Architecture.
The design for this installation evokes the world of architecture in the most open sense, from Lego child-playing to the creation of large modular buildings.
Utilising flat-packed modular units made from honeycomb cardboard that are easy to assemble in a matter of hours, the temporary installation seamlessly combines spatial concerns, sculptural texture and colour, in a joyful environment.
