为庆祝波尔图历史中心城区被列入联合国教科文组织20周年，建筑事务所FAHR 021.3所创造的球型临时装置“月蚀”将于2017年2月至5月在城市中心的Amor de Perdição广场展出，为古老的城市增添新的吸引力。
The celebratory piece Eclipse marks the 20th anniversary of the classification of the historic centre of Porto as Unesco World Heritage site. A temporary installation, Eclipse is a project by architecture studio FAHR 021.3 who created a sphere that temporarily shifts the centre of the city square towards its gravitational pull.
“这个装置以一种怪异的尺度进入城市空间，激发了人们的好奇心和互动性。” 建筑师Filipa Frois Almeida 与 Hugo Reis说到。
“The installation enters the public space with a disruption of scale that entices interaction and fruition,” describe Filipa Frois Almeida and Hugo Reis from FAHR 021.3
其略微偏离中心的位置让来往的路人以全新的角度去观察Amor de Perdição广场。大胆的尺寸与色彩选择打破了周围建筑所营造出的安静而优雅的历史氛围，形成了出乎所有人意外的对比与联系，人们不禁慢下脚步，驻足停留。以通风管道制成的六米球体上，蜿蜒的曲线与镂空空间相互交替。远远看去，这个巨大的球体色彩鲜亮，而随着人们的靠近，其金属质感与模块化的构造形式则愈发突出。人们通过管道，从另一个角度重新观察这个熟悉的场所。
Eclipse stands in an off-centre position which encourages passers-by to rethink the Amor de Perdição Square from a different perspective. It breaks the surrounding architecture’s quiet historic elegance with a bold statement of sheer size and colourful disruption. This unexpected contrast establishes a daring relationship between the installation and its surroundings, thus inviting people to stop and appreciate the location from another viewpoint.
The six meter diameter sphere is constructed using ventilation ducts that create a visual dialogue between undulating lines and empty spaces. The striking colour and spherical shape stand out in the distance, whereas the metallic texture and modular structure are revealed when approaching the piece. Furthermore, each tube allows people to peek and discover another point of view of the historical surroundings, again inviting us to stop and consider new perspectives of a familiar site. The piece introduces a dynamic with the urban context, an aspect that was explored in a sound performance that highlighted Eclipse’s uncanny qualities with material sounds.

During the day the installation reflects and spreads daylight over the square, softening its effects as the evening approaches, but it is at night that fully lives up to its name when a spotlight illuminates one of its sides and keeps the opposite in darkness.
Eclipse will be showcased at Largo Amor de Perdição until May 2017.
