A PNEUMATIC STRUCTURE RECONFIGURABLE AND ADAPTABLE TO DIFFERENT PLACES
Pipeline Catwalk for Kenzo in Paris, France
PIPELINE is a reconfigurable ultralight pneumatic structure created by DOSIS – a Madrid studio founded by Isabel Collado and Ignacio Peydro in 2006 – as a nomadic architecture adaptable to multiple uses and which can be set up in different places. It was first used in Paris, in the 5th arrondissement, in February 2020 to host the Kenzo autumn-winter show. In the same place where the Romans once settled, René Descartes alternated thoughts of geometry and philosophy, Pierre and Marie Curie strolled discussing radioactivity or the Situationists drifted, Isabel Collado and Ignacio Peydro made sure during the last week of February 2020 that the traveling, instantaneous architecture they had created worked properly for the event that was produced by Bureau Betak for Kenzo. A pneumatic structure characterized by an air volume of 4,700 cubic meters and an air flow of 156,000 cubic meters/h, with a floor area of 1,500 square meters and a PVC membrane 0.65 mm thick and weighing 3, 5 T.
