Recording Room

Our garden needs its flowers: Flows and artistic narratives at l’Hospitalet Cultural District was developed in the Center For Arts Tecla Sala during the spring of 2021.

The exhibition hosts the cultural production of artists living in the city of L'Hospitalet de Llobregat.

Inside this exhibition, and due to the poor acoustics of the museum exhibition spaces, TAKK proposed the construction of a space that would improve these conditions in order to present the works of the musicians who participated in the exhibition.

As an initial requirement, the installation was meant to be self-supporting without getting attached to any of the elements of the exhibition space (pillars, walls, floors..), and that it could be easily assembled and disassembled for its transport, storage and reusing.

From this starting point and taking into account these conditions as a kick off for the project, the proposal builds a circular structure made out of wooden frames.

This structure, thought as a "raw" luminic-acoustic assembling, uses both its circular shape and the use of panels and curtains with a high degree of acoustic absorption, in order to generate a new "isolated" room inside the rooms of the museum.

The pieces are attached one to another without using screws or glues, and replacing these items for the combinations of traction and compression efforts produced by crosses and cable ties, enabling like this its assembling and disassembling performance.

The flexibility of its construction is also expressed on the division and hanging system of the acoustic panels, that allows, in certain occasions, to remove part of the panels in rows or columns, and it multiplies the possibilities of the use of the space and the exterior-interior visibility.
