Expo Design & Build Brazil

Exposition for the International Symposium “Social Housing in Brazil and in The Netherlands” at Hogeschool van Amsterdam, November 2009

 

The exposition Design and Build Brazil was part of the International Symposium “Social Housing in Brazil and in The Netherlands” held at the Hogeschool van Amsterdam. The exposition, displayed at the entrance hall of HvA Leeuwenburg building, presented all student graduation projects done for D&BB since 2006.

Three were the main requests of the event organization for the assignment: a low-budget, flexible (easy to transport and to assemble) and “informal Brazilian looking” setting. The design of the modular display consists of a large (honeycomb) cardboard panel where the posters are attached and a few piles of old wooden crates arranged at different heights over which the models are placed. Groups of four of these displays together form islands that allow the visitor to move 360° around them.
