    Student in a Master of Environment Design, in the Ravensbourne College of Design and Communication, I am working on the expression of the architecture. Analysing how it could be better related to its content, I am mainly orientated in the exhibition design field. Through this blog, I will try to share my reflexions, my experimentations, analyses... Enjoy!

Hortus Conclusus

The Serpentine Gallery invited this year Peter Zumthor to design the annual pavilion. This architect famous for his sobriety and power of simple form, choose to insert himself in this beautiful area of Hyde Park, in integrating a sober and minimal rectangular volume for his pavilion.

DAY 4

Today was the day of the finishing: we added the fabric on the frames, to allow the translucency,                         gathered the ceilings to check all details                 before gathering everything, ready to leave the workshop! The last step … Continue reading
