ROOMS: No Vacancy
On January, 2014, Fake Industries Architectural Agonism through MAIO commissioned us to design a catalogue for the presentation of the project “ROOMS: No Vacancy for the Young Architects Program” for MoMA PS1. The concept of the intervention, in the words of Cristina Goberna and Urtzi Grau: “Rooms: No Vacancy recuperates the tradition of the New York party scene, raising the question of how architecture could start, ignite, or boost a successful celebration through a typological and technological approach. Celebrations are never activated by spectacular architecture, but by the public in its interaction with different technologies. Festivities taking place in big-scale spaces such as raves, concerts, etc. use devices that are mostly atmospheric (light, sound, music) or related to our bodies (drugs, alcohol, sex) to keep the party going. Small, medium, or very reduced festive settings such as apartments, bars, dark rooms, etc. use more architectural methods to provide tactile experiences (surface materials) and to unveil or conceal (walls, doors).”
Featuring Fake Industries Architectural Agonism (Urtzi Grau, Cristina Goberna) with MAIO and in collaboration with Luis Úrculo, Daniel Fernández Pascual, plus the consultancy of Pol Esteve and the editorial advice of Daniel Perlin and Craig Buckley.
