Bricklab: Absolem

18 October @ 8.00 am - 5.00 pm

For this design intervention coinciding with Dubai Design Week, architects Turki and Abdulrahman Gazzaz of Jeddah-based Bricklab studio are constructing a “synthetic intervention” that funnels visitors through the Alserkal Avenue entrance on Street 6A.

Bricklab approached the opportunity as “the threshold to a French formal garden – a spatial construct that emphasises a position of apprehension and meticulous control found in the composition of an 18th century allée”; a glossy metallic grid, lined with plastic trees, constructs a forced one-point perspective for the public. Says the blurb: “by manipulating this perspective, the designers challenge the collapsibility of experience into a single, two-dimensional image, and highlight our multisensory comprehension of space …”

The installation will be there till 1 November 2020.
