One Bucket at a Time


5468796 Architecture [Canada] and Factor Eficiencia [México] with Studio NYL Structural Engineers [USA] present One Bucket at a Time, a public installation that weaves together thousands of common 5-gallon painters’ buckets to form two giant waves.

Initially designed as a pavilion for people to explore and enjoy as part of Mextrópoli City Architecture Festival in March 2017, the installation was inspired by the prevalent use of buckets to hijack public space in Mexico City.

Received with great enthusiasm by visitors, these strong local origins of the bucket have been reinterpreted by the design team in a new project for the Winnipeg Design Festival and Nuit Blanche/Culture Days.
