EFFEKT ASKED TO TRANSLATE 'YES' AND 'NO' INTO CREATIVE VISUALIZATIONS FOR DANISH NEWSPAPER POLITIKEN | December 2 2015
Inspired by the upcoming referendum, the Danish newspaper Politiken asked a group of artists to make a creative translation of what 'yes' and 'no' looks like. EFFEKT Architects was chosen to make the architectural translation - the rest of the artists include performance artist Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen, hat designer Stig Andersen from Andersen & Berner, visual artist Peter Carlsen, poet Klaus Høeck and painter FOS (Thomas Poulsen).
EFFEKT designed a 'yes' and a 'no' building. The 'yes' building to the left illustrates inclusive, open and transparent architecture that adapts to the city and invites the urban spaces and the public inside. The 'no' building is a closed off building that entrenches itself and shows no desire to interact with the surroundings.
