Honoré d’O (Belgium); detail of his installation “Het Schoonste Curacao moet nog komen”, 2007. He did this installation during his residence on the IBB and I would like to give it as an exemple of beauty, and as the most creative architectural modell for a theatre on Curacao!!
Because of the www.6thfcaabiennial.com on Curacao, we as IBB organised a workshop for the Caribbean architects. Me, Sofia Zaveedra Bruno, together with architect and our chairman of the IBB board, Carel Weeber were leading this workshop. The topic was to build/design a new theatre for Curacao. There are a lot of discussions about it on the island, especially about the place. We wanted to have fresh and neutral opinions of our guests about two places/options which are not on the specific list of locations which one discusses on Curacao. They had not much time, because in a ‘pressure-cooker-precess’ of ca. 3 hours they had to produce sketches, ideas and a modell. Furthermore, they had tot work in small groups and continue eachothers ideas………
In the evening they were asked to explain their ideas to their collegues during the lectures.
