National Competition. ARQ-INFAD 10
Project year 2010
The initial decision to Mat-eria is the vertical arrangement of the two modules and the tangential displacement between them, obtaining geometry of this sculptural light appearance, together with rusted steel skin evokes the passage of time in relation to the surrounding environment.
This process generates a tension between the plan that works as the core modules of relationship. These may be higher or lower depending on the needs of the citizens.
At this point the facade practicable devices generate an internal-external visual continuity as well as outdoor spaces relationship. Also, the very arrangement of modules allows privatized spaces outside relationship, which runs the air and rain.
The shell provides a transparency that opens to the environment and a double look, suggesting a state of contemplation with the surrounding landscape.
