SOUQ

Included in Projex’s scope of works was to produce a special commission for the fair designed by Prestigious Pritzker prize winner Shigeru-Ban in the shape of a Souq. Made almost entirely out of recyclable cardboard cylinders and all locally sourced materials, the series of stalls formed an inviting space for the event visitors to engage with local designers.

The structure symbolised the heritage and culture of the region and was also used as a meeting point for workshops and talks from local craftspeople. The lightweight and reusable materials stood out brilliantly in contrast to today’s flamboyant designs.

Art Zone

As part of the event Projex were asked to create a purpose built area to accommodate the fair’s Art Zone. The result was a 600 sqm structure set over 2 floors, comprising of a series of dedicated zones. The modern, fun space acted as a children’s studio hosting all day activities, allowing the children to create art inspired by pieces from the event.
