Scòpic

During my internship in Jordi Tamayo studio, we designed a miniature indoor theme park, centered on a train that rolls through Barcelona’s landscape. The space is equally engaging for children as for adults. Previously, the site was a supermarket, so the large open space and grid fluorescent illumination were a given. The idea was to create a box in black and white (black floor and ceiling; white walls) to focus all attention on the train and the Scòpic colors. Our task was, above all, to design the museum, the projection room, the ticketing, the café and lunch counter, and the shop areas; the last three of these spaces use wood to reference to the old trains.
