Unit E Exhibition
Oxford Brookes School of Architecture · BA Year 3
Plumb-line from site location on Parma map to model.
Designed to accommodate a large range of models and drawings from Unit E 2015. Student projects focused on a range of public buildings regenerating parts of Parma, Italy. A teal coloured timber frame floats above the existing flat display surface, lightly touching the ground. The frame allows for a large model with bespoke supports to hover above a lower layer of sketch models, material tests and artifacts related to the same project. Plumb-lines hanging above the physical models trace back to their location on a city map.
Bespoke corners, lifting the drawing and creating a shadow gap.
Timber frame floats above existing flat display surface.
Screen integrated into display table with video documenting Unit E research trip to Parma, Italy via Lyon, France.
After success in Oxford the frame was redesigned to be the main feature at the Oxford Brookes School of Architecture exhibition in London. It accommodated a new range of models from different design units alongside Unit E. This involved creating a new lower table with improved lighting system.
LIGHTING & SPACE
Integrated lighting for work above and below the frame. Cut-out space allows you to get close to and amongst the models.
