Un espace pour souffler - Передышка
Moscow (Kursovoy Lane)
Reception Hall, Embassy of Canada
Design Commission awarded: 2010

The design for the wall of the Reception Hall of the Embassy is a visual composition of colour-coded sound waveforms rendered in layered panels of mouth-blown glass inset in LED light boxes. The waveforms are digital outputs of recorded voices reading texts in different languages. They call for enough ‘breathing space’ to permit tolerance.
