co+labo radović with urban cloud, co+labo team wins Keio Competition for HAPP Pavilion
A team of co+labo Masters and undergraduate students, Ueno Wakataro, Tsuji Soyoka, Ayumu Magome and Kusano Shota have won the Keio University Hiyoshi Art and Performance Project - HAPP Competition 2015. Their imaginative and poetic design of the new pavilion will be built at the Hiyoshi Campus, making one of the attractions of the forthcoming Hiyoshi Campus Autumn Festival. The event is organised by Keio Research Center for the Liberal-Arts, with an aim to facilitate communication between the University and its broader community.
The main feature of our In the Cloud - on the Cloud pavilion is that it will be reusable, and thus become the next in the series of co+labo urban research pavilions which we use in investigations of quality of urban and architectural spaces, for data collection, various interactions with local communities and passers by and for various, Situationist-inspired, Debordean détournements and creative provocations. It is our hope that the Cloud will do what co+labo urban table and co+labo urban cupboard could not give - travel with us to many locations in Japan and abroad at which we operate and conduct our research and design-research.
co+labo was the winner of HAPP competition in 2011.
