Studio Akane Moriyama did a collaboration with Swedish architect Petra Gipp for the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale at Time Space Existence, Palazo Bambo, Venice, Italy. The collaborative work inserts itself in the ancient dialogue between architecture and textile. It develops spatialities between the heavy and the light, the hard and the soft, the specific and the general, the material and the immaterial – through the interaction and manipulation of two different materials; two different orders and material states. The investigation considers the impact of the selective qualities of a membrane. How its’ different levels and forms of permeability effects both the membrane and that which penetrates. For this collaboration the membrane constitutes the framework of transformation. A barrier is not absolute within the context it forms, instead it is, in its turn, formed by that same context.
