In 2013 I was commissioned by Far From Standard to create that year’s PLÅTPRIS, the Metal Prize. Its title is “Ytspänning”, the Swedish word for surface tension. The prize, created from etched and patinated copper and brass, was awarded to WHITE Architects.
There’s is an interview here (in Swedish) about my work with the Metal Prize. The photos below show how different the metals appear depending on the light they’re seen in.
The PLÅT seminar
The PLÅT seminar is a major annual event devoted to metal sheeting and architecture. The purpose of the seminar is to highlight sheet metal facades and metal’s architectural potential, showcasing unconventional ways of utilizing it. Every year some 300 architects, contractors and consultants attend the seminar. It is produced by Far From Standard.
