Contribution to Metamorphosis. Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Philharmonic Hall, Scale 1:20
Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, Lisbon, Portugal
Exhibition 8 November - 1 December 2013

LISBON, PORTUGAL, 8 November 2013 - This exhibition is the result of a research project centered on cork that looks into innovative and creative uses for the profoundly Portuguese material cork with its unique properties. Metamorphosis is part of the 8th edition of the Experimentadesign Biennial (EXD'13). Our contribution to the exhibition consists in a model of the philharmonic hall of the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg in scale 1:20, milled in cork. The model is integrated into a wall, allowing visitors to get a physical impression of the space of the future philharmonic hall. With cork we use a material that addresses the senses: visual, aural, haptic and olfactory.
