Exhibition Design at the Spanish Embassy in Washington D.C.
Team: Alejandra Navarrete Llopis and Jaime Yndurain Llopis
The project proposes to articulate the exhibition design through two equal modules. Connecting, rotating and enclosing them, multiply the display variables and offer countless possible combinations: a continuous line of exhibition at the perimeter, a free standing stand, or an enclosed room. The configuration of two independent pieces, allows also each module to be located in different rooms, activating two spaces at the same time and establishing a dialogue between them.
Each module follows the same design of a very light triangulated structural frame, that together with its V-shaped plan, presents a stiff and stable free standing structure. The hollow metal tubes that form the structure serve not only as a support for the exhibition panels and the art works to be on display, but also as an infrastructural system for lighting.
The repetition of the modules and reduction of the number of elements facilitates the fabrication process and reduces the production costs. Both modules are also foldable through a series of hinges, allowing an effortless assembly and disassembly, relocation and storage.
