Street party installation by FAHR 021.3

This temporary installation S. Joao Structure is a result of a community workshop by portugal-based FAHR 021.3 architects for the event Acorda! in the Design Institute of Guimarães. The design reflects 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 populate 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.
