s. joao structure - street party installation by FAHR 021.3

this temporary installation ‘s. joao structure’ featured as part of the event acorda! at the guimarães institute design, june 2013. the design is a result of a local community workshop by portugal-based FAHR 021.3 architects, and is based on a typical portuguese street party - locally known as ‘s. joao’. one of europe’s liveliest street festivals, the people of porto pay tribute to saint john the baptist by traditionally hitting each other with garlic flowers or soft plastic hammers. characterized by the color of ribbons and flags that hang on the streets and the fireworks that are launched throughout the night, the ‘s. joao structure’ reinterprets this atmosphere with hanging, balloon-like forms that have a reflective, shiny material.
