Set Color


For this year’s London Festival of Architecture and The Bloomsbury Fete in June, ADA – a collaborative architecture practice and workshop – created a dreamy set for “Europa,” an architectural opera with composer Adam Donen. For the unique performance, the stage “becomes the lead actor,” in which ADA built an ambitious arrangement of colorful wood shapes and forms, reminiscent of a giant children’s board game. Actors could “play” with the components, stepping into large tubes and cubes, interacting with each element to make it come alive.
