Support Structure

location: London

date: 2003-11-29

Support Structure is an architectural interface. Support Structure aims to create a space which is continuously reinvented by its users in relation to its context. Support Structure houses artefacts as well as activities and aids reconsideration of existing spaces as an impulse for future change.

Support Structure is an evolving collaborative project between architect Celine Condorelli and artist-curator Gavin Wade. Our aim is to design and create a universally adaptable support structure that approaches the specific rather than the generic. To acheive this we are putting Support Structure through a learning process.

1. We will design and create a universally adaptive Support Structure in support of artefacts, information and human activities.
2. To achieve this we will put Support Structure through a learning process.
3. Support Structure will manifest a process of adaptation and development in relation to a series of different activities and sites.
4. Support Structure is universal but never generic, each application is specific to a particular situation. Each output will generate a different result and, through a cumulative process, will also contain a process of translation. Support Structure is not an exhibition, but can be used as a tool to translate and facilitate the idea of exhibiting.
5. Support Structure embodies the temporary through an aesthetic positioned between ad hoc and permanence.
6. Existing support systems such as scaffolding and stud walls will be combined with examples of radical exhibition design from the early 20th Century such as Frederick Kiesler's L and T-Type Display Systems, 1924, Vienna, El Lissitzky’s Room For Constructive Art, 1926, Dresden and Lilly Reich’s The Velvet and Silk Café, 1927, Berlin.
