The architects at FXFOWLE realized a design for the inaugural Miami project art fair. The sculpture created at FXFOWLE is known as the FXFOWLE Lounge. This installation features a self-supporting architectural pavilion housed within a well-selected lounge and bar area. Using technically sophisticated scripting software with simple museum board were the tools that the architects used to create such a pavilion.
It is composed of 180 varying components that, when together, make up the form of parametrically structural geometries. Each component was pre-assembled in a factory by hand into 19 different ribs. They connected each piece using only Elmer’s glue and a stock adhesive. After this process they were installed upright and fastened to each other through zip ties.
Beanbag chairs and Prince Aha stool that were provided by Fatboy and Kartell thoughtfully compliment the pavilions complex structure. The 20 foot long carbon fiber bar that the architects designed in house was custom fabricated by SCRA, an applied technology research corporation. 3M to further highlights of the structure provided the lighters.
