With their design for UNFAIR22, Destination Center: Swamp (Winner of the Architect Award 2021), Fabulous Future moves away from the architectural conventions behind art fairs. The project rejects the concept of the white cube and the rigid appearance of traditional fair booths. Instead, Destination Center: Swamp adapts to the circular structure of the monumental Gashouder. Utilising a flexible and lightweight modular scenography system, and elements inspired by set design, wastelands and labyrinths, the Gashouder is divided into three distinct zones which play with translucency, artificiality, navigation and suspense.
Fabulous Future is a collective and an ongoing project; binding together research, development and the construction of spaces, events and situations. Fabulous Future is committed to an expanded notion of space making, and flourishes from a broad range of backgrounds and skills: fine arts, design, architecture, scenography, cooking, woodworking, writing, gardening, sound, video, performance, etc. The methodology of the collective revolves around continual negotiation in order to reach a shared outcome and encompasses constant consideration of surrounding social and political contexts. This form of work and self organisation enables projects to have unique means of process-led and critical production; inclusive to expanded notions of everyday rituals (being together, cooking, sleeping, dancing and care for each other) which are an integral part of Fabulous Future.
