In the Techtextil installation the self-supporting pavilion serves as a space in which guests can experience a trip to Mars in virtual reality – as represented by co-exhibitors the European Space Agency (ESA) and the German Aerospace Centre (DLR).
T4 HOUSE is a house located in the same massively constructed villas with the typical design. But to the landlord it’s a “timeline” with many ups and downs after more than a decade living there.

Costa Esmeralda is a private venture on the dunes of the coast of Buenos Aires, 390 km from the city of Buenos Aires. This is a recent development with a young acacia and pine trees afforestation with a few consolidated forest sectors.
The lot to intervene is located in a dune with a gentle slope to the street and a greater slope towards the bottom. This area also has an abundance of trees of young maritime pines.

The Lattice Pavilion is a small prefabricated, modular, moveable, functional art structure designed to provide a special place in which to escape from the norm.
The base support frame is an eight-foot cube, with ten lattice-covered panels that fold out from the support cube frame, and are attached back to it, in order to form the final shape of the pavilion. Five of these panels are folded again at the center point and secured to the support frame. The support frame and the lattice-covered panels are mounted onto a floor, which is elevated above the ground on four support legs that require little or no foundation, depending on the site-specific needs.
