FEENY UNCORKS ART BOX PLAN

  • Comment
NEWS IN PICTURES

London-based Peter Feeny Architects, with 3P Urban Process, has won an international competition for an 'art box' in Cork, the Republic of Ireland. The duo saw off competition from four other shortlisted submissions, including fellow London firm Eldridge Smerin. The winning design features a small mirrored box - the 'art box' itself - sitting within the outer frame. This frame, which is 12 x 12 x 24m, is composed of rectangular white fibre-reinforced plastic.

This was designed to 'provide a filter' between the internal and external surroundings, which acts as a potential site for concerts, lectures and film screenings.

The firm also designed a 'carpet', to link the box and frame to the outside world. The carpet will be made up of an LED system linked to a computer that responds to the movement within the art box.
