- Best of Livegreenblog 2015, installations
Even temporary architectural installations enjoy great respect, not only by our editing team but also with the wider public, as feedback from our readers shows.
So, we're giving you a short overview of some of the most iconic installations of 2015.
We'll start with “Ocho quebrada” by Catalan architect Josep Ferrando. Final output of a workshop with the Architecture School of the Finis Terrae University in Los Vilos, Chile, the ephemeral architecture is striking because its historical references engage with the natural landscape.
On the other hand, in France Atelier YokYok with Ulysse Lacoste and Laure Qaremy designed Les Voûtes Filantes an installation in the cloister garden of Saint Stephen's cathedral in Cahors. The visual tension between the bright colour of the soft wool and the dullness of the hard stone used to build the cloister, between the eternity of the place of worship and the temporary installation becomes its focal point - increasing our perception of the space and encouraging reflection about the concept of time in architecture.
Of course, there's no way we could leave out Brazilian urban artist, Narcélio Grud who created the “3D Grátis”. installation in Brazil. An artwork that highlights the behaviour of the citizens. A single theme is proposed in a number of aspects – from food to toys through to flowers - thereby clearly improving the environment. His art encourages citizens to engage with their surroundings and releases a truly renewable energy - joy.
