Album of Young Architects and Landscape Designers
The scenography of the ‘Albums des Jeunes Architectes et Paysagistes’ (AJAP, formerly NAJAP), is entrusted to one of the winners of the previous edition. This is how Projectiles, winner of the NAJAP 2005-2006 cession, was chosen to design the project for the 2007-2008 following edition.
The ‘IN’, the itinerant sequence
We designed an exhibition highlighting a collective dimension that was in opposition to the individualism of our daily practices. We wanted to simulate the best of all worlds by imagining future exchanges between agencies: a system of interdependencies forming a chaotic and indomitable universe. The jumble of informative luminous sticks created a landscape of intertwining. The result was a gigantic game of ‘pick-up sticks’, each one corresponding to an architectural or landscape design agency. These translucent polycarbonate strips were printed with portraits and agency projects, all backlit. An inlaid digital photographic frame provided additional information, integrating projects, a world map and a sequence expressing the working environment of each of the winners. The system allowed for a variety of arrangements based on an assembly variation adapted to each location that made it possible for the exhibition to travel, giving it the opportunity to be shown in several French cities.
At the end of the ‘tour’, the bars were offered to the corresponding agencies.
