ecomuseum

  • The ecomuseum, the place where the main exhibitions of the Green Design Festival 2008 are held, is in itself a way of expressing the environmental awareness and as such, it becomes an exhibit on its own.

    It is an open building, set in a public space of the city and its goal is to provoke the by passer to get in, wonder and feel free to join the exhibitions and happenings, combining entertainment and information. The exhibitions are organized as a series of boxes along a route, some accessible, some not, and they are all joined under a perforated shade.

    The items used are re-usable, ordinary containers for the exhibition rooms, and wooden pallets to form the routes. In that way apart from the exhibits, also of the construction of the space is an example of the environment sensitive design.

  • Το ecomuseum, ο χώρος που φιλοξενεί τα κύρια αντικείμενα της έκθεσης του Green Design Festival 2008, είναι το ίδιο ένας τρόπος έκφρασης της οικολογικής συνείδησης και ως τέτοιο, μεταμορφώνεται και αυτό σε έκθεμα. Είναι ένα ανοιχτό κτίριο που στήνεται στον υπαίθριο χώρο της πόλης, προσκαλεί τους περαστικούς να περιπλανηθούν και να συμμετέχουν ελεύθερα στις δράσεις, τις εκθέσεις και τα happenings, προσφέροντας παράλληλα ψυχαγωγία και ενημέρωση.

    Οι εκθεσιακοί χώροι οργανώνονται με τη μορφή κουτιών (επισκέψιμων ή μη) γύρω από μια διαδρομή και όλα μαζί κίνηση και έκθεση, ενοποιούνται κάτω από ένα διάτρητο σκίαστρο. Τα υλικά και τα αντικείμενα που χρησιμοποιούνται, είναι containers για τα εκθεσιακά περίπτερα και ξύλινες παλέτες για τις διαδρομές, ικανοποιώντας με την επιλογή αυτή τη λογική ότι εκτός από τα εκθέματα, και ο ίδιος ο σχεδιασμός του χώρου είναι αντικείμενο αναζήτησης τρόπων επανάχρησης και ανακύκλωσης.
