OPEN’s installation titled “The Eternal & the Ephemeral” evoked the interest and participation of a great number of visitors at Marmomac 2017 which was held from September 27 to 30 in Verona Italy. The piece was created in response to the theme of the exhibition, “Soul of City,” curated by celebrated Italian architectural scholar Luca Molinari.
OPEN’s latest work, “Dialogue by the Sea”, the project that includes two separate but related buildings, Sea Art Space and Dune Art Space respectively, has recently won the Iconic Awards 2017- Best of Best in Concept Category. It is the highest honor of this award organized by the German Design Council.
