an exhibition dedicated to polish architects
„TYGRYSY – W ZESPOLE SIŁA” is an exhibition dedicated to polish archtects known as „Tygrysy” (the Tigers), active in the first half of the XXIst century. The group consisted of three architects: Wacław Kłyszewski, Jerzy Mokrzyński i Eugeniusz Wierzbicki.
The MFRMGR office was selected for the design as a result of the competition to develop the architecture of the exhibition. The idea of the exhibition focuses not only on Tygrysy’s projects, but also on the mechanism of joint action and the benefits of group creation.
The „Tygrysy” installation does not leave the recipient indifferent to the topic and the space that surrous it. It was important so that the viewers of the exhibition would be involved in a game, in which the participants interact with each other, as well as to become familiar with the presented projects of the TIGERS group. The form of the exhibition refers to the symbol of the seat, because its when you sit up, you can invent wonderful things and solve problems.
The entire exhibition was divided into 9 groups. Each one of them consists of 3 differently configured seats. In this way, the exhibition became a form of utility installation – street furniture. By being able to position the recipients of the exhibition in different relationships with each other, a variable level of tension is built as well as the ability to perceive a given issue from different perspectives – e.g. seeing a model.
Each of the 9 exhibition groups corresponds to a different period of creativity of Tygrysy group and one important project is selected from a given time.
The content of the exhibition was printed on a special fabric resistant to weather conditions and stretched on the frames. Frames are made of white-painted steel.
To diversify the form of the exhibition, we’ve included three-dimensional models – models of selected projects. They were placed inside the frames with the help of hidden fastening systems. They were covered with plexiglass shades.
