Shared Identities
by vora

"Shared identities” is a temporary exhibition that explains the architectural production of Barcelona-based office vora from a conceptual approach.

The content of the exhibition is divided into 3 topics that are repeated in our architectural processes. 3 tools to define the identity of spaces, whether they are domestic or urban: type, matter and memory.

The exhibition layout creates an inner space within the interior of the gallery, generating tension and new situations between the two. This new interior is fractionated in linked spaces, a spatial concept that is essential to the typological research of vora.

Those 3 topics are explained in 3 “boxes”. Each topic, 8 works or projects synthesized into a picture and a drawing; and a complete work deeply explained: a text, a graphic board (drawings), photographs and a conceptual model. The three “boxes” define a circular tour through the gallery, displaying contents inside and also on the outside.

The exhibition is temporary, itinerant, with a very limited budget and built with their own hands. vora designed a removable assembly system, quick to implement, lightweight and easy to transport.

Pine wood slats with assembled joints, fixed by butterfly screws, and wooden boards as a bracing and stiffening of the “boxes”, screwed to the slats with lag screws. Boards incorporate the exhibition content. The slat system also creates tables that are deployed from “boxes” to support models and publications.

The system allows multiple configurations and different spatial articulations, to be placed in a different way each time the exhibition is assembled in a different place. The tables can be deployed in different positions and the boards can also be screwed in different positions to those of the first assembly in Belgrade.
