Exploring ideas of lightness and perception, PAR has created an interactive installation for the exhibition Time Space Existence at the 2016 Venice Biennale. Through materiality and light, the installation engages fundamental architectural themes of space and existence; its reflective forms changing according to the surroundings. The extraordinarily thin, suspended aluminum structure offers an undulating field for interaction where people can come together during events at Palazzo Mora.

Curated by Global Art Affairs Foundation
Vernissage on 26 to 27 May 2016 from 18.00 to 22.00
Exhibition from 28 May to 27 November 2016

With special thanks to Arup for their in-kind engineering and Lorin for their generous fabrication and sponsorship.

PAR has been commissioned to design a home in the West Hollywood district of Los Angeles. The project involves adapting an early 20th century spanish revival structure into a family home including a guest house, terrace and pool. Our strategy embraces the character of the existing building while inserting contemporary elements that transform the space into a 2,300 sf home for exhibiting art that opens up to two private gardens. Construction is scheduled for Summer 2015.

Our proposal for the Guggenheim Museum Helsinki has won the US Embassy Special Prize in a juried exhibition at Interarch 2015, the XIV Triennial of Architecture in Sofia, Bulgaria. The building is a collection of eight soft pavilions of varying sizes and undulating heights that reflect the surroundings while creating a porous urban condition. The volumes lightly intersect with one another leading to a collection of exhibition spaces surrounded by public gardens. The resulting 12.100 m2 institution is a transparent and light building, clustered between Helsinki and the Baltic Sea. Check it out on World Architects.
