Eme3 was born in 1999 in response to the need to find a space for architects, urbanists and artist from different disciplines, where they could meet and present innovative and unconventional projects that went beyond common trends in urban planning and construction. It was the volumetric concept, the measure unit in cubic meters that gave it the name.
The 8th edition of eme3 Festival will take place in Barcelona from June 27th to 30th at Fabra y Coats under the topic of TOPIAS, Utopias becoming real
We were selected to present the result of our research project KIUI – Kit for istant urban interaction.
Pop up device The project is a common object, the door, that can be used at the same time as an exhibition device and as a tool for an anomalous use of the space. This module is composed by a wooden frame on which two doors are fixed. Through its opening the visitors will access to the informations kept in it. The aim is to overcome the visitor’s habitual passive practice, and to transform it in a direct and active experience.
In addition to the exhibition content, fixed in the inner sides of the doors, the module contains a pop-up system, consisting in customizable folding structures. Once opened, it declares different ways to live the space. Thus the door becomes the gate that connects and blends two different realities, indoor and outdoor spaces, which represents our approach to the theme of common urban space.
