RE-LAVA ED: GEOMETRIES BEYOND THE BLOB

July 2010

LAVA`s Chris Bosse has sliced up the 1967 Panton chair as part of the Re-loved: designer stories at the Powerhouse Museum 31 July – 30 September.
Bosse is one of several designers commissioned by the Powerhouse to use a pre-loved chair to tell a story about a piece of furniture they love.

http://www.sydneydesign.com.au/2010/index.php/exhibitions/re-loved-designer-stories

“We’ve chosen to represent this shape as slices, similar to an MRI scan in order to make visible its complex 3dimensional geometry. The chair is metaphorically and physically carved out of a sliced box, ” says Bosse.
“The project retro-digitises the chair design, although it was the chair that preceded the digital design revolution.” Bosse believes that today we understand better how to derive form from geometry, such as the underlying geometries in nature, and can incorporate buildability into the form from the inception through parametric modeling techniques.

Re-loved is on display at the Powerhouse Museum from 31 July – 30 September 2010 during the Sydney Design Festival.

The Raumwelten Art & Research stream sees international experts, creatives and curators present trends and developments of communication in space in different panels. Wallisser will curate - “Beyond Construction“ – Innovative approaches to space production.

It’s a long way from vision to reality. LAVA showcases that journey in a new exhibition "visionAreality" featuring its major German and global projects at the renowned Architektur Galerie in Munich.

The projects featured are in varied states of construction giving visitors an opportunity to experience LAVA’s vision for the world of the future, a world where the interface between man, nature and technology is merged.

The exhibition showcases LAVA’s latest projects ranging from a research campus in Saudi Arabia, innovative small scale projects in Australia and Germany, facade prototypes for high-rises in China, to a new generation of hostels in Germany. The show runs parallel to the BAU fair in January 2015.

LAVA'S 'SPATIAL HOLLOW' AT VENICE ARCHITECTURE BIENNALE

27 May 2014

If you’re in Venice for the Biennale in June why not pop into the “Alpitecture Meets Biennale – Topographic Structures” exhibition at the Palazzo Bollani to see LAVA’s installation?

Inspired by "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" by Washington Irving, LAVA's creative solutions are featured in a ‘spatial hollow’ made of cardboard boxes, a layered, topographic structure with information at various scales.

Three mirrored canyons feature images, geometric patterns based on nature’s systems, mirrors and cardboard that can be choreographed by the viewer. Every move creates a new visual perception fusing contextual relationships and dynamic conditions - a trademark of LAVA’s projects.

Featured inside the hollow are some of LAVA’s key green projects: a research and innovation campus for KACST in Riyadh, the mixed-use development THE:SQUARE in Berlin, Bonn’s Green Climate Fund and the Jeju Island resort in Korea.

LAVA is one of 11 internationally renowned architectural firms featured in the exhibition, which also includes Hadid, GRAFT and BLAURAUM ARCHITEKTEN.

Alpitecture Meets Biennale, 04 - 08 June 2014, PALAZZO Bollani - CASTELLO 3647, VENICE, near the Arsenale.

LAVA BUBBLES OVER AT BEAMS FESTIVAL

7 September 2015

Yesterday we had a big official event at Bayreuth for the new youth hostel. The ‘Y’ shape 180-bed sports hostel will feature innovative spatial configurations, sustainability at environmental, and structural and social levels, and integrated sporting facilities and include facilities for wheelchair athletes.
The event included breaking ground to mark the beginning of construction and LAVA members who took part at yesterdays event were Tobias Wallisser, Alexander Rieck, Julian Fahrenkamp (project leader of the youth hostel) and Angelika Hermann (construction planning, youth hostel).

Soap bubbles, champagne bubbles, water bubbles. Who doesn’t love bubbles?

LAVA is excited to be part of BEAMS Festival in Chippendale with a bubble installation on Saturday 19 September 2015. 

‘BEAMS Bubbles’ will fill up a terrace house, stairwells and a new office block in the Kensington Lane precinct. Made from inflated latex, the installation fills hundreds of cubic metres of space, is air supported and uses only 1 kg of material – its highly efficient, creating a big impact with limited means. MORE WITH LESS – something LAVA is passionate about.

More than mere form, the bubbles are activated by coloured LED lights, the installation is animated with a dramatic play of light, reflections with refractions in the full colour spectrum, just like the rainbow light on soap bubbles.

BOSSE CREATES A CHOCOLATE CORAL LOUNGE

28 May 2013

Chris Bosse has designed a ‘chocolate’ lounge for Sydney’s Powerhouse Museum ‘Eat the Collection’ event.

‘Eat the Collection’ explores the interaction of design, food and technology - in chocolate. Bosse and nine other designers were commissioned to re-mix a favourite Museum object. Their designs will be printed in chocolate using a 3-D printer, with the edible designs on show at the ‘eat-in’ on 30 May 2013. 

Bosse’s Chocolate Coral Lounge is inspired by the museum’s contemporary furniture collection, in particular Marc Newson’s 1988 Lockheed Lounge, and its coral artefacts. 

Bosse will speak at the sold out event.

BOSSE ON THE CUSP

2 JULY 2013

Chris Bosse is one of twelve Australian designers exhibiting in CUSP: Designing into the Next Decade at the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, Sydney, 6 July - 1 September 2013 and then travelling Australia-wide.

Exploring the potential of design in our lives, Object Gallery's CUSP designers 'generate ideas that could change the way we inhabit the world’. 

Cloud City: An urban ecosystem is a sculptural rendition of Bosse’s vision of a future city - a soaring, stretched membrane-cloud anchored to the ‘city’ on the gallery floor by high-rise towers that have been re-skinned and revitalised. 

‘The future is not about what buildings look like, but how they perform, interact and how they connect with each other. Think of a coral reef, where thousands of species thrive in coexistence of each other and the elements, air, water and sun. The reef is like the city of the future.’

‘Our installation asks: can cities of the future be organisms that respond and adapt to their environment?’

The networked city is a connected, inter-dependent organism where buildings are not singular structural entities (designed, serviced and accessed as isolated units), but part of large networked system. 

An distributed cloud communicates, shares smart building technology and joint infrastructure, connectivity and data transfer allowing transport, housing and urban infrastructure to adapt in response. 

Bosse replaces outdated passive building facades of the skyscraper with high-performance smart translucent cocoons that create their own microclimate, generate energy, collect rainwater and improve the distribution of natural daylight. By re-skinning these inefficient buildings the past is transformed into ‘super-abled’ buildings.

Following the Casula showing the CUSP exhibition visits Launceston, Adelaide, Dubbo, Port Macquarie, Brisbane and Mornington Peninsula from 2013-2015.

LAVA CHOSEN FOR AUSTRALIAN PAVILION, VENICE ARCHITECTURE BIENNALE

22 OCTOBER 2013

LAVA'S 'Tower Skin', the proposed reskinning of the UTS Tower in Sydney, has been chosen as one of 11 'contemporary unbuilt projects' for the Australian virtual pavilion at the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale.

It engages with the broader Venice Biennale theme of national identity and modernity.

Chris Bosse, director of LAVA and Adjunct Professor of UTS, said: “The UTS tower highlights how national characteristics were erased in favour of a single modern language in the 1960s. But where national identity is erased in the tower, ‘Tower Skin’ brings it back.”

LAVA’s solution to revitalising the generic style 1960s modernist building was to reskin it with a lightweight membrane envelope.

Surface tension allows a high tech membrane to freely stretch around the existing building, referencing the Sydney Opera House sails, nature, the harbour and all that is Sydney.

“It addresses the timescales of fashion and technology versus building life spans, whilst incorporating 21st century technologies with local identity to achieve maximum visual impact with minimal material effort,” added Bosse.

21 unrealised Australian projects will be brought to life through three-dimensional augmented models, images, voiceovers and animations in the virtual exhibition ‘Augmented Australia 1914-2014’.
