fluidity

Fluidity is an installation designed by GGlab + Paulo Flores from the occasion of MADE exhibition in Milan, Italy and Cevisama exhibition in Valencia, Spain. Today’s social reality forces public spaces to be more compound. It is not enough to create only a place where people can gather. Modern public spaces should be well connected with society on the one hand but on the other hand they should have relation with the environment.Fluidity is an urban element with a double skin: the outer surface is made of elements which decontaminate the air, and is connected with an inner surface generated out of extruded ceramic tubes. On the inside the floor bends to form waves which generate a dynamic space synergically connected with the outer skin.

Today’s global society requires a greater continuity between public and private, indoor and outdoor spaces, from which new synergies arise, and lead to more dynamic urban spaces with a better relationship between cities and their inhabitants. Fluidity uses the characteristics of ceramics to respond to these needs, creating urban elements characterized by a double skin, in other words with an outer side, composed of elements that decontaminate the air, and an inner side consisting of extruded ceramic tubes. The floor is flexible, forming waves that move in synergy with the various layers of the skin. Walls, ceilings and floors interact with each other. The public space of the future is a varied space, composed of elements which interact with one another through the use of diverse materials and various building systems, leading to design projects with versatile functions.

The Ceramic materials that make up the project are the result of a continuous technological innovation, the pursuit of environmental sustainability and modern design from the Spanish ceramic industry has always stood out for its creativity and ability to innovate.

Les architectes de l’agence GGlab + Paulo Flores ont projeté ” Fluidity ” dans le but d’interpréter les besoins de la société globale contemporaine. Les besoins mis en évidence par ces derniers sont en particulier : la demande d’espaces urbains dynamiques, de meilleurs rapports entre les villes et les habitants, d’une plus grande continuité entre les espaces publics et privés, les espaces intérieurs et extérieurs vécus comme les promoteurs de nouvelles synergies.
Fluidity est un élément urbain avec un double revêtement : le côté externe constitué d’éléments qui décontaminent l’air est relié à celui interne formé de tubes en céramique extrudée. À l’intérieur, le sol se plie et forme des vagues qui créent un espace dynamique relié de façon synergique au revêtement extérieur.

Le matériau qu’ont choisi les architectes pour satisfaire ces exigences et donc réaliser Fluidity est la céramique, considérée comme le matériau principal pour une conception durable des villes. Fluidity a été présenté au salon MADE de Milan et sera également exposé au salon Cevisama de Valence, en Espagne.

Gli architetti dello studio GGlab + Paulo Flores hanno progettato “Fluidity” con l’intento di farsi interpreti di necessità della contemporanea società globale. Le necessità individuate dai progettisti sono in particolare: la richiesta di spazi urbani dinamici, di migliori rapporti tra le città e gli abitanti, di una maggiore continuità tra spazi pubblici e privati, spazi interni ed esterni vissuti come promotori di nuove sinergie. Fluidity è un elemento urbano con una doppia pelle: il lato esterno è costituito da elementi che decontaminano l’aria, si collega a quello interno generato da tubi di ceramica estrusa. All’interno il pavimento si piega e forma delle onde che generano uno spazio dinamico collegato sinergicamente alla pelle esterna.

Il materiale scelto dai progettisti per dare delle risposte alle esigenze individuate e quindi per realizzare Fluidity è la ceramica, considerato come il materiale principale per una progettazione sostenibile delle città. Fluidity è stato presentato al MADE di Milano e sarà esposto anche in occasione del Cevisama di Valencia.

Die Architekten des Büros GGlab + Paulo Flores haben “Fluidity” mit der Absicht gestaltet, zu Interpreten der Notwendigkeiten der zeitgenössischen Gesellschaft zu werden. Die von den Gestaltern bestimmten Bedürfnisse sind insbesondere die Nachfrage nach dynamischen urbanen Räumen, nach besseren Beziehungen zwischen der Stadt und ihren Bewohnern, nach mehr Kontinuität zwischen öffentlichen und privaten Räumen, internen und externen Räumen, die als Förderer des Zusammenspiels der Kräfte erlebt werden. Fluidity ist ein urbanes Element mit einer doppelten Hülle: Die Außenseite besteht aus Elementen, die die Luft reinigen und verbindet sich mit der Innenseite, die aus extrudierten Keramikrohren besteht. Im Inneren biegt sich der Fußboden und bildet Wellen, die einen dynamischen Raum schaffen, der im Zusammenspiel mit der Außenhaut verbunden ist.

Keramik ist das von den Gestaltern gewählte Material, um Antworten auf die erkannten Bedürfnisse zu geben und um dann Fluidity zu realisieren. Keramik wird als das wichtigste Material für eine nachhaltige Gestaltung der Städte angesehen. Fluidity wurde auf der MADE von Mailand vorgestellt und wird auch anlässlich der Messe Cevisama von Valencia zu sehen sein.

Green Geometries Laboratory founded by Andres Arias Madrid (Mexico), José Ramón Tramoyeres (Spain) and Sangyup Lee (Korea). It is a young Office, we do architecture for the global society as a network of independent research that works from Valencia – London – Seoul, we are committed to redefining architectural and urban design through computational techniques and sustainable means.
Our believes:
1_we believe in sustainability, but this has to be environmental, social and economic.
2_network, we believe in networking and teamwork.
3_exploring and applying new technologies and advanced geometries for the future by learning from the past.
4_take part of the society, in its development, we do so based on two pillars: research and innovation.
a_research (generating knowledge) through our teaching.
b_inovation (apply knowledge) through our practice, in direct collaboration with the private sector.
Our work on digital architecture and design has been widely published and presented in various media and international competitions in Spain, China, Italy, USA, Belgium, Mexico, UK and Russia.
