ARCHITECTURAL COMPETITION EXHIBITION
The briefExhibition of the entries in the architectural competition for ephemeral constructions in Athens for the 2004 Olympic Games
Cultural Olympiad 2001-2004
To create the necessary exhibition area for the 813 panels we designed five mazes, each for one of the competition’s themes. The maze as a space transmitted the idea of getting lost in and being surrounded by all the architectural projects, since due to their high number, trying to view them all like in a normal exhibition would be impossible. The gradually lowered levels of the museum provided the opportunity for revealing the complexity of the mazes by highlighting the upper ends of the walls with light, forming the plan view of the installation. Among the different themes the sorbet booths were placed: five green plexiglas portals, where a recorded message was repeated, informing the visitor that they are changing categories. The sorbet booths helped the visitors refresh their senses before passing to a different section of the exhibition.
