From the evolution that squares have experienced, there is a new way to use and exploit its inside: the galleries. The main function of these is to link the exterior and interior of the block from the gallery as a space for mediation and where public space is mixed with the commercial one. In Valdivia, a city where it rains most of the time, this type of space is an opportunity to experience the city throughout the year and revitalize the public space and local business.

70 South Franklin Street in Nyack, New York is the studio and gallery space for furniture designer Blake Tovin. Conceived as an intervention, the structure of Tovin Studios is a former warehouse. The project investigates economy of means, materiality, natural lighting and sustainable construction techniques. The facade is clad in weathering steel. Four major “light scoop” sky lights deliver day light and are a passive solar heating system. The project is currently awaiting consulting with energy modeling from NYSERDA.

Automobile is our rival to beat.
Came one day a client who offered us a business. He wished to have an atelier which can be used also as a gallery to present his work of ceramic art, which he made for pleasure.
With mere 1.5 million yen(=11,000 euro)which he saved to originally purchase a business-purpose Toyota Collora sedan to spare as total budget, we started our project.

How do we build something that modulates space and changes the circulation path of an existing architectural environment by using almost no material? What does it mean to fill space with volume that is on the threshold of absence?
