Trans(Inter)ference

Location: Montpellier, France
Type: Pavilion
Year: 2015

For the tenth edition of the Festival des Architectures Vives in Montpellier, Syracuse University commissioned us to design and construct a three-dimensional drawing in the courtyard of Hôtel Audessan, which received the festival's special mention award.

Trans(inter)ference seeks to construct an armature for a series of flickering moments of alignment — an in-between object that weaves subject, object and context into one.

The facades of Hôtel Audessan are projected through one another to become a series of labyrinthine thresholds. 

 

The result is a convergence of drawing and sculpture in space. While its solidity is defined by material densities and line-weights, its perception is dependent solely on one’s position, creating new relationships with the existing building.
