KANAL: Thinking - Book #1
BOOK #1: THINKING, is about the ideas of the project from the competition to the Building Permit and includes written texts, visual essays, drawings and photographs. BOOK #2: MAKING, is about the making and materiality of the project, about the technical drawings and material sampling, about the colour strategy and a sense of unfinishedness and about the construction and mock ups. BOOK #3: SHARING, is about the finished spaces and what happens after handover to the curators, users and public. It records the occupied and working public spaces, revealing the spontaneity and creativity of use.
BOOK #1 outlines our reactions to the building itself and to the way we chose to work in a collaborative way. The underlying objective is to describe our adopted process of designing – questioning the meaning of an art institution and questioning the usual conventions of architectural practice. The process of showing art in a public space – allowing the existing building to become a key protagonist. The process of connecting to community – encouraging the breaking down of physical, social and mental barriers. The process of production and education – making them both spontaneous and visible actions within the everyday life of KANAL.
