OSA office for subversive architecture designed in 2006 a temporary structure for the roof of The Blade Factory, a 700 square meter space that is part of the new art center complex.
The architecture office created an interesting, playful structure that inhabits the roof and one vertical side of The Blade Factory. The installation is a building as well as an outdoor installation, literally embracing the building and connecting its roof with ground level. The structure physically divides the roof into two spaces but at the same time has a permeable facade that can be walked through.
Made from the type of PVC curtain used in modern factory buildings, an outer, white translucent layer protects the whole space against the weather, and an inner red translucent layer adds thermal and noise protection to create a gathering space for lectures and talks.
