ARCHIFEST PAVILION

The Reclaiming Connectivity pavilion was originally inspired by OWIU Design Studio Founding Partner Amanda Gunawan’s photographs on abstraction of natural landscape. The Pavilion’s design uses photography print on Light Emitting Surfaces (LES) glass to capture the subtle details of water as an attempt to distort its original way of being perceived. Similarly, the Pavilion’s concept of Reclaiming Connectivity is a relook at what is current, and aims to inspire reflections on humanity’s innate need for connection, juxtaposed against the current reality of social distancing in public spaces. The LES glass is kindly sponsored by SG-Glass and Kingboard (FoGang) Specialty Resins.

OWIU Design Team: Joel Wong, Amanda Gunawan, Claudia Wainer, Eduardo Cortazar
