LIGHT-SPACE ENVELOPE

project team: Vlado Danailov, Gordan Vitevski, Monika Novkovik with Meri Batakoja

year: 2011

The light-space envelope is created from two layers: louvers inclined according to sun rays throughout the day, and colored glass panels. The concept is dual in its nature: simple and overly static box from the outside, and open patterned-colored, ever-changing from the inside. As a pavilion prototype, it is universal, without fixed dimensions. It is specified by proportions and the sunlight. It can embrace nothing and everything – urban rudiment, abandoned house, wasteland segment, tedious bus stop, bench, tree, rain. The goal is to bring the invisible and unnoticed into rediscovered city quality.
