The Austrian Winery Boom
New York - invited
The mobile exhibition design for “The Austrian Winery Boom” provided SPAN with the chance to explore the issue of Performative Surfaces as well as The Economy of Form in a deeper extent. The Az W (Architekturzentrum Wien) asked for a design that had to fulfill various criteria: It had to be lightweight for transportation purposes, it had to protect the architectural models on display, additionally it had to protect wine bottles and it had to display graphics with the plans and images of the projects. To fulfill all this demands Matias del Campo and Sandra Manninger relied on the concept of minimizing the amount of parts necessary to create a display case, as well as integrating as much of the necessary functions in only two surfaces. The design process resulted in a very specific topology of the surface, which enabled the programming of the shells with a specific form.
