Toluene Tank Zimoun

Using simple and functional components, Zimoun builds architecturally-minded platforms of sound. Exploring mechanical rhythm and flow in prepared systems, his installations incorporate commonplace industrial objects. In an obsessive display of simple and functional materials, these works articulate a tension between the orderly patterns of Modernism and the chaotic forces of life. Carrying an emotional depth, the acoustic hum of natural phenomena in Zimoun’s minimalist constructions effortlessly reverberates.” bitforms nyc

RS29 Ecker Architekten

"This project is located in the Weststadt of Heidelberg, in a dense residential neighborhood. The focus of the project is the renovation of an artists’ café built in 1950, located deep in the center of the housing block. In subsequent years, this building was used for residential purposes, and it will once again be utilized as housing, with a portion dedicated to commercial use."
