The architecture design for the art fair ABC 2015 divides the gallery halls into rooms of 10mx10m. These are defined only by their corners, whose length, number and position are determined by the galleries themselves. They may choose to curate a corner, a cross or an entire room. The result is different spatial situations, sometimes more closed and sometimes more open, where the grid almost seems to dissolve. The different positions begin to communicate, defining the atmosphere of each room together. The architecture provides a framework that creates orientation and unity whilst at the same time offers the galleries and artists various opportunities to present themselves.
