"This project involves the design of a small pavilion on the site you worked on for Project #1 at the start of the term. The pavilion will feature the work of graffiti artists in Montreal. The pavilion may be a permanent structure, a temporary structure, or a movable structure."
This project involves the design of a graffiti museum in the same location as the plant in the first project. I started of designing a very complex museum with different modern lines and curves. But I wanted also to commemorate in the shape the industrial history of the place. So I have decided to play with the tree non-architectural features of the site, the engineered piles. Therefore, I have placed one rails three containers, all directed to the three different piles. The rails remind people not only of the industrial trains that used to come and the beginning of graffiti that started in the metros of Paris. At night, they would project on to the piles pictures or videos of graffiti. And, in order to not make the containers too enclosed, too private, I’ve decided to explode them, open them up.
