An impressive installation architecture design which called the CCPP is completed designed by the collaboration between the Collectives Cochenko and Quatorze. This installation is carried out by Butong together with the two collectives. Which is commissioned by the French Ministry of Culture and MILDT, the installation will travel to schools and institutions in a drug awareness campaign. The chance is given to discuss the drugs with the visitor, through the creation of a hallucinogenic space. The space, light and the sound is interacting with the visitor. It is giving a personal experience which is created by the visitor’s movement and mindset. At a time, only one person is allowed inside and may stay for as long as he/she wants to.

This installation is contains three continuously linked spaces: pleasure, repetition and awakening. The door is shut behind the visitor who is given the beauty and the tranquility by entering the first space. A soft, crystalline music and subtle light phenomenon’s are bring the peace and pleasure. The surroundings are closing in around the visitor by sliding into the second space. A harsh sound and a light environment are brought on the person who is deprived of the direction and is given the heaven and the hell in a quick rhythm. The visitor starts to reach for the reality and a numbing bass is growing through the body in the last space, it is giving a will to leave for a solid ground. Through a series of the idea-generating seminars, this truly collaborative installation is initiated; it is organized by Cochenko at the ENSAPB School of Architecture in Paris. The students wanted to work with the light and the sculptural space; it is to illustrate the different aspects of druguse.

To realize the bold organic concept, a group of the students and the young architect which is known as Quatorze got deeply involved and contacted the newly started Butong France. From a 3D model the drawings for the wooden boxes are extracted. By using a special technique, every box is unique and draped with the concrete panels, which is developed by Butong giving the translucent panels of free-form using only concrete materials. Which is activating the different scenes manipulating the subject’s experience of the journey through the container, the wooden floor hide the triggers. Thus the reflections on the drug use and abuse are raised.

There are no pamphlets or brochures in the installation, no pointing fingers, only a mind-opening experience and a chance to reach people coming for the installation. An opportunity to talk to people is lured by architecture.
