DESIGN LAB: THE FACETTED GALLERY
The Facetted Gallery is a wall – a folded and pleated surface that wraps around an existing structure, sometimes concealing doors and at other times (and in most places) nestling display boxes to house a rather large collection of shoes and vintage artefacts. It is a museum in a wall.
We made scaled models to help the local craftsmen visualise and measure out the components to be constructed, as part of the process. The thinking and making is perhaps a scaled down version of what could be a building or its façade; and we employ the same tools of drawing and making models to explore and communicate our ideas in a very haptic approach wherever possible.
