A Revolution in portable architecture
Last week in Miami at the Design Miami fair, a whole new series was launched by a company called Revolution, set up the flamboyant real-estate developer Robbie Antonio. “All architecture is bespoke,” said one of the pavilion designers, the emerging Thai architect Kulapat Yantrasast. “This is prêt-à-porter.”
Yantrasast’s own structure comprises a central dome with four wings, and its outer cladding of anodised aluminium can be specified in any shade the buyer might like. Its interior is lined with a gold or silver finish. “Everyone likes to have a place for themselves. It’s a more elaborate version of sitting under a tree,” said Yantrasast.
