The focal point of the Bayer Leaps Pavilion, designed by DREAMLAND CREATIVE PROJECTS, emulates the actual concrete stair in Lyons, France, the location where Pro Skateboarder, Aaron “Jaws” Homoki attempted the longest skateboard LEAP. Injured by the leap, Jaws made a complete recovery and returned to the stair to try it again.

The Leaps Stair touring installation is a symbol of the ‘leap’ and the attempt to achieve the impossible. The 25 steps of the staircase, brings the brand mission of Bayer Leaps to life, and is a story of never giving up. The design uses the concrete stairs foremost, as the generator and seed for all design elements, finishes and details.

THE DETAILS

Since the design is generated from the stair, all the details flow from the proportions, dimensions, joints, finishes and alignments with the stair.  The massive doors, have hidden pivots and move with the touch of a hand. The exterior of the doors is a concrete finish, applied with a craftsman's hand to match the concrete panel of stairs. Inside the door finish is a softer finish and reveal the sanctuary interior. It is a minimalist monument

STAIR INTERIOR SANCTUARY

Underneath the stairs, and hidden behind the massive doors is a sanctuary, an experiential space for mindfulness, gathering, conversations, relaxation, meditation, yoga, tea ceremonies, and fireside chats.

The soft, organic sanctuary finishes on the interior, contrast with the hard concrete finishes of the exterior. Simplicity of modular details, fluid and flexible continuity, over scale and perspective, create cohesive unity.   The experience is then enhanced with transformative day and night interactive digital messaging, which tells the story of the leaps. The stairs and sanctuary welcome, invite and inspire the big dream.

Designed to harmonize with the beauty and mountains of Aspen, five key design components were implemented in this 33,000 square feet museum: The Moving Room Elevator , Grand Staircase, Wooden Screen, Wooden Roof Structure and the Walkable Skylights. The design captures the experience of ascent and descent, similar to the experience of skiing, using locally inspired materials in innovative ways to integrate the connection with the beauty of Aspen.

LIDO

London, UK

Lido is a proposal for a re-interpreted Lido facility inside a park adjacent to the River Thames in London. Lido spatial fragments are dispersed and submerged into a pool of water, creating platforms for performance. Water levels are controlled for dry and wet shows. An L-shaped corner wall contains a vertical ampitheater with spectator seating for concert and fashion events.  With Dreamland.

EL DORADO

A Visionary City

El Dorado is a visionary city proposal which attempts to capture and re-translate energetic memories of New York City. Based on personal dream vignettes of experiences in New York City, choreographic notations (rather than architectural drawings) inspire the design of mysterious dance sequences, which were performed interactively with energetic street patterns projected on the wall. Performed in London and Paris. With Dreamland.
