Industrial Space on a Gyroscope

Gimbal-2

Fantastische Arbeit von Emma Colthurst, ein Architektur-Modell als Gyroskop, das in rotierenden Gebäudefragmenten die Geschichte der Londoner Docklands erzählt. Sehr clever und sieht ganz, ganz großartig aus. Toll!

‘Destination Docklands’ seeks to reconnect the remnant memory of the submerged industrial landscape. A Gimbal—a mechanism, typically consisting of rings pivoted at right angles, for keeping an instrument such as a compass or chronometer horizontal in a moving vessel or aircraft—holds the Dock’s spatiality in fragmented balance. Previously a device used for ship navigation, the Gimbal realigns glimpses of the area’s connected history, and its axes pivot perpendicularly, bringing their own relationship and meaning to the Dock. The Gimbal becomes a capsule for the connected ‘players’ of this industrial world.
