This year at the 16th International Architectural Exhibition, architect Ricardo Blumer designed an installment called Space and Wall to start to break the barrier of the the structure-bearing wall. Instead of traditional drywall, brick, or concrete these walls are made from a stretched soapy lamina.
With the use of this material, it allows the Wall to be transparent yet very fragile and ready to break. The installment has a total of 11 segments each with a different longevity due to the nature of the material. The Space is constructed out of 81 wooden blocks that are continually in motion, moving up or down, in order to create a shifting “landscape”.
