Trans-form, Trans-it, trans-port.org is a self-initiated Architecture, Art and Design publication by FL@33 founders Agathe Jacquillat and Tomi Vollauschek. It's a conceptual project based on everyday observations of tower cranes combining a magazine, a CD-Rom and a website.
___ The project was made public in July 2001 during the Royal College of Art, master degree Show in London and marked the birth and intentions of FL@33.
___ The large scale magazine is exploring the magic of urban sculptures that appear and disappear in the cities we are living in. Tower cranes that are lifting, transporting, re-constructing, drawing, cutting, performing and trans-forming are usually unnoticed by the public's eye. Trans-form presents information about tower cranes and crane operators' daily work in the sky.
___ The CD-Rom adds videos and animations combining industrial structures with natural imagery and is presenting a cityscape metamorphosis, defining our cities as being in a larval stage.
___ Trans-port.org offers you the possibility to build your own crane, to climb a tower crane and to be a crane operator.
___ The widely-acclaimed project has been mentioned and featured online and in numerous magazines and books around the world.
STOCKISTS | CURRENTLY AVAILABLE AGAIN
It used to be available in bookshops and museum stores around the world.
___ It was believed to be sold out for years but a box full of Trans-form magazines in mint condition (including Trans-it of course) has recently been unearthed and the previously sold out magazine is currently available again – exclusively at stereohype.com (signed, worldwide shipping).
___ Please note that a screen capture preview video of the CD-Rom's content was posted here for the first time. FL@33 also created an updated 'player' for Mac OS X users to enjoy the CD-Rom's content that was originally created for Mac OS 9 at the time.
