Here is the latest published work by R&Sie(n)
called Things which necrose
, for the current exhibition Green Architecture for the future
in Lousiana Museum of Modern Art (Denmark). By designing a bio-plastic pavilion, I feel that R&Sie(n) emphasizes the ambiguity of the paradox between biodegradable and sustainability like all their other work always question this politically correct dogma of ecology.
This pavilion is thus going to die little by little during all the time of the exhibition and its degradation can be manually controlled by the humidity degree in the atmosphere. The program asking for a temporary building is thus considered as litteral here, as long as, its own death is included in its protocol of life.
This pavilion has been realized thanks to bio-plastic with hydrosoluble polymers and then casted in CNC moulds.
