The Olympia Project

A nomadic gallery approached Drawing Agency looking for a temporary, flexible solution for a possible new space in Brooklyn. A simple pair of lightweight, mobile volumes inhabit the unfinished gallery space, able to be positioned in multiple configurations resulting in up to three separate gallery spaces capable of hosting events and installations.

As a component of our study, the gallery asked to explore more permanent options, including a supergraphic demising system on the floor and finished workshop and office space.
