Under the glacier
At the beginning we wanted a cloud but it turned out to be an iceberg."
On the outside, an expressive construction of animal shapes, on the inside a translucent canopy resembling the ceiling of a glacial cave.
The liveliness and randomness of the resulting form reflects well the way the object was created. Apart from vague ideas about the future form and material, not a single detail or structural solution was planned. Each contact, rib or joint was devised and added only when the need for it arose; the shape of the shell was also spontaneously dug into the ground and laminated.
The object was created in a workshop at the FA studio of Kristýna Smržová and Barbara Ponešová, focusing on the Design-Build methodology. The Design-Build methodology has been tested to the literal essence of its name by the aforementioned process.
