At Platform 28, we focus on the intersection of art, architecture and design. Almost as big as a shipping container, Platform 28 is a multifunctional apparatus that constantly changes from one function to another. These functions often vary from an exhibition space to a library or a workshop and the spatial transformation is made possible by means of mobile units.
Platform 28's interest is to find an architectural language in four specific categories: The built environment; the visual arts; wearables; and product design. These categories are curated according to our seasonal themes. Our main objective is to render architecture as a multidisciplinary field with many ways of expression that is not limited to the design of buildings and cities only.
At Platform 28, we symmetrize our objectives as following:
Platform 28 is a multifunctional apparatus | Platform 28 is about art, architecture and design | Platform 28 is not a gallery | Platform 28 is not a problem solver | Platform 28 is not a monologue | Platform 28 believes in innovation |Platform 28 believes in creativity | Platform 28 believes in the designer mind | Platform 28 has an interest in impossibilities | Platform 28 has an interest in the craziness of ideas | Platform 28 has an interest in debatables |Platform 28 does not believe in scale | Platform 28 does not believe in normality | Platform 28 does not believe in predefined directions | Platform 28 acknowledges the importance of the “past” but is not interested in its consent | Platform 28 encourages constructive thoughts on the future of living | Platform 28 encourages research and process| Platform 28 encourages borderless cultural exchange.
