Hecho por la Ventana (Made Through the Window) by Wide Open Office
A glimpse at the industries that founded Ybor—cigars, bread and coffee. This installation will project films about those core industries in the storefront windows while exhibits inside will provide information and showcase actual workers.
Lucky Cat Shrine by Illsol
An interactive alleyway installation where visitors can write their own messages and present them to the Lucky Cat ‘shrine’ at the end which is said to grant wishes or thoughts.
Unveiled by USF SACD
This installation is meant to attract visitors into unvisited places in Ybor. Set in an alleyway, it consists of illuminated wood panels which provided seating, shaded by organic fabric, the elements make the space more inviting.
The Ribbon by USF SACD
The team of USF students will be creating pockets of inhabitable space and rethink the concept of ‘walls’ and ‘canopies’. This installation will segment the existing space with panels and a canopy will stretch overhead to create a sense of privacy in the alleyway installation.
Laumbra by USF SACD
This intervention will challenge the perception of alleyways. It is normally perceived as accidental spaces between buildings; dark, dirty, and backdrops to crime. Our proposal is inspired by the notion of lanterns to redefine the spaces into a safe, inhabitable social hub. The installation can act as an alternative path defined by seating. The effort is going to explore different types of relationship between illumination and structure. At last the installation will address both the use during the day and night. Daily walks through this neglected space can become a highlight for Ybor exploration and or a gathering area for the community.
Reflections by The Urban Conga
This interactive storefront will allow the user to see themselves in a new way
Cuban Roots by WJ Architects/ WJ Create
This team will present their take on sustainable living via a re-imagined herb garden made for commercial and industrial areas like Ybor. The herb garden, made of organic and recycled materials, is filled with Cuban oregano, mint, cilantro and many other herbs traditionally used in Cuban cuisine as an homage to the city’s roots.
Traveling Obscura by Traction Architecture
By using ancient Camera Obscura technology, this exhibit will provide an interactive experience for visitors in and outside the Center of Architecture and Design. Graphics will be projected, capturing the history of the building.
Muhndi Intervention by Sol Design Studio
The intention of this installation is to tell the story of Ybor through chaptered interventions throughout the urban fabric. The main installation functions according to the concept of T.W.I.R.L. (Think, Walk, Interact, Relax and Learn). Each person will have the opportunity to complete small assignments that will lead them to better interact with the pop-up park as well as develop a unique memory map of the city of Ybor
