Feasibility Study: A Renovation in Three Stages
Gendai opens its new workstation at 1265 Bloor Street West!
Gendai's 2011 Fall project Feasibility Study is a deconstruction of space which improvises with materials found during the renovation of the site. This project is an alternative design strategy where the process is slowed down, broken into three stages, and made transparent to the public.
Stage 1: Line Projection - 09.09.11
Lines are drawn at 1:1 to clarify the space, test spatial possibilities, create circulation, and set in motion a performance of construction.
Stage 2: Material Assemblage - 10.10.11
Lines are solidified into an assemblage of found materials.
Stage 3: Architectural Construction - 11.11.11
Each part of the space comes to life through open-ended architectural elements.
