SKIN, Portugal

by P-06 Atelier
2010
 
 
‘The Pavilion of Knowledge’ is an interactive science and economics museum. In collaboration with architect João Luís Carrilho da Graça, P-06 Atelier created a “SKIN” employing a perfect mix of bold graphics, tactile patterns and typography that also functioned as a wayfinding system.

 
 

Moveable walls have the American Standard Code for Information Interchange cut out of them as an analogy for the museum’s intention of sharing information. Through the different sized stencils, both noise and the white LED light are filtered differently at different points of SKIN.

 
 

The environmental design intervention SKIN was distinguished alongside 10 others, from a pool of 6,468 entrants, with a Grand Prix at the Red Dot Communication Design Awards in Essen, Germany.
