The creative hub, placed in the context of the event, acts as an exhibition space and simultaneously stands as an installation itself. As a requirement, this was needed to be done within a short time frame. This consisted of less than a month of design and conceptualization and a fabrication period of a week.
The Hub was to be set in Malcolm Square, a public open space surrounded by commercial establishments and located within the bounds of the city center. To maintain the open characteristic of the park, there was a need to maintain permeability and explore negotiations between programs, people, and architecture.
The initial stages of the project involved the exploration of a space formed by the synthesis between a park and an exhibition area, which later evolved to establishing a space that fosters community and connectedness--a space that encourages different arts and crafts to meld together to create an experience that is more nuance to the viewer. A loop was later on established to create an interaction between the artists and the people--a boundless space that creates an osmotic environment where one craft is able to relate to another.
