Party Wall is a vertical shade that creates space by the shadow that it casts; that acts as a stage-set for a series of micro-performances, and that sheds its skin in order to accommodate those events. The true definition of party Wall is intended: a wall shared between different users. Weaving together the “bones” and “blanks” that are the bi-product of eco-friendly skateboard company Comet Skateboards, party Wall creates a porous façade that is inhabitable at a range of scales. At its feet, a series of pools is fed via a gravity-operated fountain that engages with the “church” courtyard Ballasted by glowing water pillows and using structure by Banker Steel, the structure engages both the urban scale and the scale of the courtyard.
