Jean-Louis Chanéac, Parasite Bedroom, (1971)

In 1971, Chanéac installed a parasite bedroom on the façade of a regular modernist residential apartment block in Geneva, Switzerland. Chanéac’s ‘parasitic sucking cells’ are mobile, evolutionary and a complete contrast to the host building’s architectural style in every sense possible.

With this work the architect wanted to experiment with a new architectural language. Avignon-born Chanéac was one of the first to experiment with spontaneous, temporary and adaptable architectural solutions. Developed as temporary and supplementary spaces, “parasitic cells are volumetric inhabitable elements which are mass-produced by industry or spontaneously built by individuals. They can be erected in a matter of hours onto the façades of buildings as a way of creating complementary inhabitable spaces”.

For the construction of this so-called ‘La Bulle Pirate’, Chanéac used synthetic materials such as laminates, resins, glass fiber, reinforced polyester and foam. The use of these materials was totally new in an era in which concrete was the dominant construction material. Chanéac applied for a patent for these multifunctional plastic cells, which could be produced in the factory, transported by road and assembled in two hours. However, he never managed to roll out the project on a bigger scale.

One Garden, Seven Characters  |  Norell/Rodhe

Location: Odense, Denmark

"The scheme for the new House of Fairytales is founded on the idea of a garden populated by seven architectural “characters”. Throughout the garden, a pattern of winding paths give the whole site a cohesive identity, while at the same time breaking it down into manageable parts that can be themed individually. The contrast between this pattern and the surrounding urban fabric will clearly indicate to the visitor that by crossing the border to the site they step into the world of fairy tales. The characters are museum pavilions that are playfully but strategically distributed throughout the garden.

Each pavilion develops its distinct persona through proportions, materiality and its relation to adjacent landscape elements in the garden. The small scale and varying character of the pavilions puts them in productive dialogue with the authentic buildings in the north corner of the site. Together, the new and the authentic will begin to unfold narratives with ties to both the fairy tales and contemporary culture.”
