4 of 7 shared their PingPong project with us, which began as a competition entry for the Serbian Pavilion at 12thVenice Biennale of Architecture. The firm has taken the initial ideas and developed them further to complete a second version of the project for the Mixer Design Expo in Belgrade. The idea of the PingPong project is to provide architectural means for spontaneous change of use throughout the exhibition life cycle.
More images and more about the proposal after the break.
In essence, the exhibition space acts as an open invitation for guests to play a game of table tennis. Playing under an amazing ceiling constructed of one hundred and thirty thousand hollow plastic balls, the visitors experience different spatial organization due to the ceiling’s geometric properties. “21 alcoves may define changing spatial boundaries in support of diverse activities.”
Yet, the project has a stronger foundation than merely enticing people to play a recreational game. The architects are rooted in the desire to experiment with a flexible architecture that can change accordingly to users needs.
