A CENTER FOR THE ARTS

PALADS BEFORE

THE MAGNETIC PULL

SITE: Axeltorv Plaza , Copenhagen Denmark PROGRAM: Movie multi-plex & Cafe COURSE: Information Design Studio// DIS Summer 2012 INSTRUCTOR: Jeanette Hendeliowitz


MAGNETIC POLE ATTRACTION + SITE @ AXELTORV

In, 1989 the facade was painted in playful “fun-house” colors that de-emphasized the architecture the refined baroque architecture. While the rainbow color palette attracts a lot of attention, not all of it good, it fails to communicate the function of the building. Despite the theater’s ideal location and proximity to transportation, restaurants, and an open plaza, it does not spur any curiousity and its “candy-floss” appearance distracts onlookers from anything else the space has to offer. In addition, Palads has experienced a huge increase in advertisement placement which creates further visual chaos and a lack of identity.

CURIOUS & ATTRACTING

PALADS BEFORE When Palads opened in 1912 it was the largest cinema in Northern Europe. Since then, it has been demolished and rebuilt , remodeled, and repurposed as a multiple theater movie complex.

NEW IDENTITY For this project, Palads is no longer a blockbuster movie complex. Instead, the theater serves as a film house for independent films, a stage for the performing arts, as well rentable studio space and gallery for contemporary local artists. Located at Axeltorv Plaza near Central Station in Copenhagen, this new center for the arts will be the main attraction and major draw to the plaza. It pulls people in from all walks of life; and just as the polarity in a magnet’s north and south pole can swap, the artwork housed in the building is interchangeable. Monthly exhibitions and film festivals are regular events at “the Pull” that attract and inspire the community; the space then becomes a magnetic and dynamic space. The new Palads, now known as “The Magnetic Pull” - A center for the arts serves as a community hub yet also offers tourists and visitors a taste of current Danish culture.

FIRST LOGO ATTEMPT the logo re-focuses on the baroque arches. While the logo “fit” it did not communicate dynamism the new “Magnetic Pull” would house

a simplified representation of the dynamic pulls of a magnet while somewhat reminiscent of a time turner

PRIMARY TYPEFACE - AVANT GO

THE MAGNETIC PULL // DIS / Jeanette Hendeliowitz

THE MAGNETIC PULL exaggerated slant implies movement “N” serves as a midpoint where polarized attractive forces act

When choosing typefaces for The Magnetic Pull, it was important that the letters be alluring themselves yet not too bold. The choice to use thinner letters helps brand the space as more refined and delicate, while a little irregularity sparks curiosity and interest.

“M” resembles arrows that make the name look more like a graphic than a word

LOCATION AND SIGNAGE OPPORTUNITIES The Magnetic Pull is located in the heart of Copenhagen. It is easily accessible by rail, bus, bike and foot. The building east facade opens to a currently under-utilized plaza.

3D LOGO CONCEPT

With the implementation of key aesthetics - posters, hanging banners and sculpture, the space is branded as a cultural center that serves as a point of destination.

PLAN VIEW plaza users can walk in and around the sculpture which features mirrored faces that reflect the environment and sparks curiosity

By creating an identity for the Magnetic Pull the space can be given new life and inspire people to come spend the day or take a look around. MIRRORED SURFACE

CASE STUDY

COPENHAGEN

LEfT: many boutiques and smaller shops such as Liebt are actually located a level below the street and have smaller display windows than stores that belong to the outdoor mall

MELISSA MIYAMOTO-MILLS // ID STUDIO SU 2012

DISPLAY TYPOGRAPHY & OVERVIEW Historically, Copenhagen has always been a city of commerce. The city was originally named Køpmannæhafn, which means “merchants’ harbour” or “buyer’s haven.” The core of the city still holds its medieval layout and thus, many of its streets still meander through narrow cobblestone alleys. Not surprisingsly, many shops can be found all along these cozy streets. While there are still many of the store fronts along Strøget boast large floor to ceiling display windows, smaller shops make use of smaller openings. Often, to enter these smaller shops, one must take a few steps down to a level below the street. These shops often have two to six smaller windows located at street level rather than one large main window. So what does this mean for display typography? As Dan, my partner for assignment one, pointed out, the architecture of the older buildings - and the placement, size, and number of windows informs the layout of the type. Each window on its own must be display. The space between windows create the columns and gutters that guide the type and the type must be designed and placed within the workable area to create a composition. In CPH the typeface and type color often reflected what kind of things would be found the stores. The store “Liebt” used playful colors - blue, pink, yellow, and orange as well as rounded letters that appear fun and childish. Understandably, Liebt sold designed trinkets as well as children’s toys. Because the stores are not highly advertised, they use their type as a means of capturing interest and communicating their identity. While I would say the smaller display type mentioned above is most characteristic of Copenhagen, I also observed innovative typography used in the busier more internationalized shopping areas. On Strøget, stores such as Vero Moda (which I have never seen in the states) began to play with type and how it was displayed. Letters were used as a textile on a very small scale (as seen on manikins to the right) but also on a much larger scale - even as stand alone objects (see large “V” above and right). The single “V” becomes a statement, despite only being discovered once inside the store. I believe this strategy is intended to build a more recognizable identity. The typography can play with materiality (the “V” was covered in polaroids) and be much more ambiguous - thus sparking curiosity and further investigation. This kind ambiguity was best mastered, in my opinion however, by the very famous Danish brand Nørgaard Strøget - they’re mirrored letters can only be read once close enough to view the clothes in the display. In general, I feel that Copenhagen’s display typography reflects two strong identities - the individualized quirkiness of smaller boutiques and the experimental nature represented in the innovative quality of Scandinavian design even in an internationalized setting.

BELOW: Stores with identities as strong as Norgaard Stroget in Copenhagen can play with materiality in their logo and display typography. It appears hidden or ambiguous from afar and delightfully reflective and clear as the viewer approaches

ABOVE: While Vero Moda, be more international in its look (and less specific to KBH), the bold creative use of oversized type as well as use of type as a pattern or textile relfects the Scandanavian innovative design approach

SITE ANALYSIS 378 Golden Gate Avenue is an infill site. One side is bordered by a large parking structure while the other is only separated from another office building by a thin strip of green space lined with trees. The south side is met by an apartment building. These adjacencies impact the quality of light and air that meets the space as well as its accessibility. While these spaces can be challenging to work with, the surrounding buildings lend interesting opportunities and possibilities that open areas do not.

CONCEPT Where Piet Mondrian created a 2D grid and created compositions by painting planes in three primary colors, we created a 3D grid in which expanded steel mesh spanned planes to become seats and surfaces relevant to the piece’s orientation. The piece looks completely different as it is re-oriented and has a non-representational form


ALBANY BULB SPLITTING ANEW

The Albany Bulb has developed from a landfill to a quirky public park covered in graffittied rubble that adds to the overall character of the place. It has become a mecca for “outsider art.”

The verb “to split” means to divide or separate. However the Albany Bulb represents and interesting split. The bulb, largely a landfill built up into a peninsula over the years embodies a “split” in a number of ways. Dichotomies exist in its (1) adjacencies (2) material make up (3) terrain + navigability. The site is surrounded by collection of regional nature areas and parks, however, it also borders a tight city grid to its east heading inland. As for its material make-up, much of the bulb is composed of concrete rubble and metal re bar, however organic life has shown resiliency and bloomed despite this. While areas of the bulb are less navigable due to the massing of infill materials, heavily traveled paths, scenic views and expressive art continue to attract visitors Splitting” in this scenario does not present a separation. The dichotomies add to the space’s overall vibrancy and character. The bulb presents a unique and interesting landscape that artists have already begun to appropriate as an exhibition space. This project facilitates this movement and while it stays consistent with the formal language of the space - use of concrete and openness to wanderers, it stands alone as a new an architectural feature “split” from the rubble it emerges from.

LOGO DEVELOPMENT As a part of Cal Triathlon Club board I helped develop a new team logo that could be easily recognized and applied to everything from apparel to our website and email signatures

PROMOTONAL FOR CALIFORNIA TRIATHLON I have been on the Cal Triathlon team for four years. In my senior year I decided to become more involved and took the position as apparel director and distributor. In addition to designing and ordering our custom apparel, I applied my design background to create posters for our recruitment events, as well as graphics that were featured on our website and social media pages.

FALL RECRUITMENT 2012

Together with our president and sponsorship chair I helped develop a team logo that we decided was necessary to increase awareness of our team as well as form a cohesive identity and replace disparate typefaces and designs used in the past.

The Cal Triathlon Club

It was important to portray the multi-faceted nature of our team - while it fosters and develops nationally ranked athletes, it is also open to people of all levels and is dedicated to making the multi-sport lifestyle fun and unintimidating. The goal is to look professional and ready to compete, but also approachable and welcoming.

has a long tradition of training hard and having fun! Come meet the team and compete in our tri-cycle race. Prizes will be awarded! No experience necessary!
