ORIGAMI LAVA, or how to create a paper volcano
The assembly of ORIGAMI LAVA has been the end point of a long adventure. A project that began in mid-2017 and which this last weekend we have finally seen it finalized. An ephemeral installation with more than 10,000 pieces of origami simulating the lava flow of a volcano.
We love sharing our work as architects with our daughters, and giving them the chance to participate in it. The ephemeral architecture festivals are the perfect opportunity, because the typology of projects and constructive processes in many cases, are (or we make it) compatible with all ages.
In this case, the ORIGAMI LAVA installation has been ideal for them to participate, as we have worked with a well-known element for them: the origami figure of the fortune teller. Who has not ever played with it? In this case, we have used 10,000!
We have used an everyday object, the origami fortune teller figure, repeated thousands of times, creating a tapestry of paper that adapted perfectly to the urban topography of the surrounding space and illuminated the darkness of the night.
A project designed by David Oliva (SP25 Arquitectura) and Anna Juncà (Atelier 4), which has been possible thanks a lot of friends and relatives of all ages. An ephemeral installation part of the Lluèrnia light and fire festival, which takes place every year in Olot, Girona. An installation inspired by the volcanic landscape of the environment.
Months of collective work that, like any project of ephemeral architecture, is consumed in a few hours.
