Studio Toggle was invited by Nuqat, a non-profit organization based in Kuwait to createan outdoor space for their cultural forum “The HumanCapital 2018”. The location given was the outdoor plaza of the newly openedSheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Cultural Centre in Kuwait City.
These parameters then informed the varioustaxonomies of voids that catered to the programmed activities and were mappedon to a modular grid. A low-tech, cost-efficient, incremental, modular systemwas developed using re-usable construction scaffolding and laser-cut IKEA drapes.
A modular grid 3x3M grid is made fromconstruction scaffolding and IKEA drapes are cut and arranged in a patternderived from a parametric algorithm. The differences in height and width resultin people reacting to the spaces in different ways and colonizing itintuitively.
Light is used as a sculptural medium toelevate the perception of both the grid and space. It frames and defines theway the users engage with the pavilion. The pavilion represents an up cycledhabitat generated from a utilitarian and modular grid system.
