From the architect. WEDGE-1 is the latest of architectonic explorations by the firm in creating projects which are highly refined in architectural morphology and yet fulfilling the programmatic agenda of the brief.

The architectural intent was to dissect the simple ‘shoe box’ and manipulate the architectonic character of the box in the most economical way. (The project had a very stringent budget limit and delivery schedule).

The name WEDGE comes from the character of the spaces within the dissected box, which largely are trapezoidal.

The space has been organized as centripetal, pinwheel form as the central gathering space holds the different wedges around it’s periphery with its undulating volumes and roofline.

The peripheral wall sets the tone of the encounter with the exhibits with its unique cut-outs, which reveal and mask the displays simultaneously to lure the public in.

This two dimensional cut-outs on the skin, transforms the project from a simple container of products to an architectural ensemble of multiple meanings and unparallel perceptual values.

WEDGE is painted white, including the exhibit floor to heighten the perception of encounter with the products.

The central gathering space has a series of light ‘vectors’ (1200 mm long T5 lamps), which forms an enclosing canopy and fuse the space to complete the Box.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

???????????? ???????? · April 20, 2014

I've very little expertise in computer programming however I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyway, if you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share. I know this is off subject but I just had to ask. Thank you!

I'm extremely inspired with your writing abilities and also with the structure for your weblog. Is that this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it is uncommon to look a nice blog like this one today.
