Zandstraat 82, Bruges, Belgium
Studio mxmxm is an art and architecture studio founded by Jason Slabbynck in 2012. The studio focuses on making comprehensive projects, on different scales, that trigger transformative experiences. Those projects – from music theatre performances to architectural installations – sometimes require active citizen participation, often include new technologies and always try to be readable to a large public.

The Liquid Wall


A pavilion that moves through the city
The Liquid Wall is a movable pavilion that functions as a platform for the exchange of ideas where meeting and co-creation is central.

Architecture is a representation of its time. But in current times, which changes rapidly, it’s hard to imagine a ‘solid’ architecture that fulfill all the needs. Contemporary society has become a liquid society with boundaries becoming more blurred or unclear.
A society that is fragile and transitory, losing more and more anchor points.
The Liquid Wall is an attempt to be an architectural representation of our time. It acts as a metaphoric anchor point, a place for meeting and co-creation, a platform for ideas and free speech. It’s constructed in such a way that it can easily be moved to different locations so it can be used several times to create a new dynamic each time.
The walls are made of wooden panels painted with chalkboard paint that challenge you to leave a drawing or message. But all is temporary, these can be erased or altered by another person or washed by a rain shower.
The Liquid Wall is a search for a more ‘liquid’ architecture that can represent our time.
