A building is just a building? Meet a group of young, forward-thinking architects who may change your mind.
Revenant, held at the CoXist Studio (next door to The Whole Ox) this Saturday from 6-11 p.m., is an architectural exhibition of ambitious, unbuilt projects by young architects from across the globe: Dimitri Damiel Kim from Honolulu, Angel Garcia from Barcelona, Chao Wei-Su from Shanghai, Owen Nichols from NYC, Matt Hung from London, and Herman Lee from Hong Kong.
The exhibition, part of Night Market, is a collective effort to resurrect the legacy of novel ideas of avant-garde work and innovation in architecture and urbanism. The exhibition’s goal is to reintroduce the concepts of bold, vanguard, and utopian styles in contemporary architecture, and get people talking about the future of what can be built.
In addition, Dimitri Kim of XMANIFOLD A.D.R.L. (Applied Design Research Laboratory), together with Oahu Makerspace, will be heading up an architectural installation at the Pinch of Salt warehouse, a conceptual 3D archipelago that people can view as they enter the warehouse. Commemorating Earth Day, “Pae moku, pae ʻāina,” or “The Archipelago” is built from over 80 unique pieces of laser-cut recycled MDF boards, each equipped with grass. Together, these pieces form a walkable boardwalk that will serve as a themed entryway to the Pinch of Salt pop-up retail vendor area.
For another impressive Earth Day-themed abstract architecture project, drop in to ii Gallery at 687 Auahi St. to see Honolulu-based designer and architect Sean Connelly’s installation, “A Small Area of Land (Kaka‘ako Earth Room).” Connelly and his team of volunteers have created a temporary earth sculpture with 32,000 pounds of volcanic soil and coral sand, coaxed into a freestanding structure that is seven feet high, nine feet long, and four feet wide. The sculpture, presented by Interisland Terminal and made of two of Hawaii’s most politically-charged materials (dirt and sand) is intended to inspire dialogue on the issue of Hawaii’s environmental decline, and how we can help create a healthy and self-sustainable future for Hawaii’s land.
“The sculpture will act as a centerpiece for open dialogue on form, aesthetics, outdoor-indoor spaces, urban-agriculture zoning, and the cultural-ecological-economy of the future Hawaiian City,” Connelly said. “Ultimately, the goal is to re-imagine what it means to be urban in Hawaii, and how this may fulfill or obscure our expectations for the future of island living.”
Come and explore the fascinating new concepts in architecture at this month’s Night Market!
