#120 The Meta-Vestibule

B11_#120 // The Vestibule // Olivier Jauniaux  A vestibule is a place of transition; a Parallax space that refers to those to which it leads whilst never being the destination itself. It is program-less space, and its function is ever changing. How do we make […]

#119 The Mutation Station

B11_#119 // The Vestibule // Bethany Hird A vestibule in-between the ordinary and the extra-ordinary. Bodies are stripped, manipulated and reinvented to morph the unsuspecting occupant into a being ready to be placed into the obscene world that lies ahead. A space of capture, deception […]

#118 Miss Getty

B11_#118 // The Vestibule // Sebastian Serzysko Meet Miss Getty, she feels intimidated by the vestibule she’s currently in. It wasn’t designed that way but it simply carries the power and energy of her ruthless father in-law that will soon decline her request to pay her […]

#116 The One Way Vestibule

B11_#116 // The Vestibule // Luke Reveley  A threshold between two environments. One to be forgotten and one full of hope and anticipation. One way in, one way out. He could end up anywhere. They say there’s a different location behind the door each time […]

#115 The Flowerpot

B11_#113 // The Vestibule // Stanislas Turcon  A vestibule is usually understood as a space of transition between the city and a building. The typology can take many forms and often conveys a particular image to the visitor of what the building represents. The 4 […]

#111 The Vestibule as Synecdoche

B11_#011 // The Vestibule // Kirsty McMullan The vestibule is a synecdoche; a part that is made to represent the whole, or vice versa. It is also a tease. The vestibule hints at the architecture’s main spaces beyond, building expectations but promising nothing. It usually […]

#110 The Archive of Transition

B11_#110 // The Vestibule // Emma Colthurst  The physical items exchanged in the visitor’s shift from the entrance to the ambiguous interior space, are held within the Archive of Transition. From high heels to walking poles, the archive absorbs the transitional items, as it ascertains […]
