Our office has made the lighting design for the Greek participation, named “Athens by sound”, in the 11th Biennale of Architecture of Venice “Out there. Architecture beyond building ".
By entering the installation space the visitor could interact with the space around him, via his presence and movement. Entering into a large dark space, the visitor was confronted by a “forest” of hanging cables with earphones and optical fibres, recessed monitors and a minimalistic map of Athens. Wooden prisms were highlighted with concealed lighting at their base so as to give the impression of floatation. The optical fibres created a game of reflections as the visitor was passing through them.
