NAPPE INTERVENTION WINS IN TAIWAN
NAPPE was the intervention that, in the end of 2016, gave FAHR 021.3 Portuguese studio the victory on a public art contest, in Taiwan. The permanent piece is in Taipei, the country’s capital, next to the new National Exhibition Center.
Studio FAHR 021.3, also known for the development of Metamorphosis near São Bento train station, says that NAPPE is a “public space intervention capable of exploring the city, and its citizens’, new dynamics”. The piece, made with a metal mesh, “questions the enjoyment of this public space in a parallel between what is real and the imagination”. So, this creative studio keeps exploring shapes through three-dimensional drawings.
NAPPE, whose creators define as a “network of things”, offers a unique experience to its users depending if it is day or night, because it has lights and integrated sensors capable of feeling the city’s vibration.
The public art contest winning intervention “defines places for formal or informal events, reactive and unexpected”, as studio FAHR 021.3 explains. March 2018 is the expected date to its conclusion.
