Plastic Bag Installation – Robert Janson – Lund University

The students of the Lund Technical College of Sweden were given the challenge to design and create a geometrical installation to inhabit an empty space.  Robert Janson, and his fellow classmates, chose to use plastic carrier bags to create their delicate structure.  The final design was simple and delicate, as the bags explode into the space and dance against the light.  They approached architecture not to create space, but to inhabit space.
