Synopses & Reviews
This study of five polycarbonate structures designed by Chicago/Paris based architect Ammar Eloueini, documents a retail space for Issey Miyake in Berlin, installations in Kansas City and New York, a runway backdrop, and the portable interactive set for a dance production that traveled from Cannes to California and ended up at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
CoReFab combines three works / fields: Concepts + Representation + Fabrication. The book documents five completed projects by Ammar Eloueni that were designed and implemented between 2003-2005. The projects are here grouped for evident similarities as well as differences. They are similar in scale, budget, materials and fabrication. They are all designed for a short life span and have a distinct familial look. Most importantly, they share a consistent research agenda in the use of certain materials, structural techniques and geometries. They differ in their wide-ranging purpose and institutional framework; the projects were commissioned by a variety of clients ranging from choreographers to fashion designers and those requiring art installations to perform very different tasks.
