Storehouse 01 is a physical / digital archive dedicated to magazine media. The concept acts as a new category of library. By housing an extensive collection of national and international design publications, this space functions as an active and participatory museum for magazine media. The idea of this archive is based on providing readers / visitors the opportunity to collect, collate, assemble media information from different historical and contemporary media sources.
Every article from each publication is compiled into a central database. From this database, visitors digitally select and compile articles of interest or for specific research to be reproduced as an individual printed collection.
The hard copy journals are incorporated into specially designed, flexible display units. This malleable shelving can be composed, arranged and re-arranged into museum displays.
