Project description:
Studio mxmxm is building an architectural triumphal arch from blue Euro pallets in the harbor, the ‘engine room’ of our current society. These pallets evoke the symbolism of the port and the European project at different levels. The possible colors refer to the European colors. The standardized form was imposed supranationally by a bureaucratic device to improve cooperation and transport of goods between nations. Under the triumphal arch, every day 4 musicians, in an increasingly automated way, will bring a version of the European anthem. Labor and the port are also subject to that process. In this way we want to pay tribute to both the port and Europe. Both are structures that are often “invisible” or feel, but are essential.
