Friday Five: Architecture That Goes Pop!
October 19, 2012
This week’s news about a conceptual design for an inflatable trampoline bridge in Paris had us buzzing with ideas for pneumatic high lines, tubular skyscrapers, and moon bounce roadways, where the chief means of locomotion would be, of course, somersaulting. While we didn’t get any of this into Rhino, architects are clearly already on the case. Snarkitecture recently unveiled their plans for inflatable “drift” pavilion for Design Miami. Raumlabor’s “Spacebuster” was exhumed from the studio archives and toured around Detroit last month. And Diller Scofidio + Renfro‘s “Bubble” expansion for the Hirshhorn Museum is set to blow up next year, making playful sport of Gordon Bunshaft’s Brutalist bunker in the process. There’s plenty more example, but you’ll have to click through to see them all.
