Saturday, November 5th, 2011

Article source: Future Cities Lab

TRILUX is an experimental pavilion constructed out of three vertical wooden lattice structures. It creates an illuminated beacon anchoring the corner of the site and inviting the neighborhood to participate in the museum activities that take place inside it. TRILUX is fabricated by combining traditional steam-bending techniques with CNC milled and laser cut components. The south faces of TRILUX host hundreds of curved spiked shade quills. Visitors view the sky through three unique woven oculi and in the evening lights illuminate the interior lattices.

Species Deposit in Legazpi, Madrid by Langarita-Navarro Arquitectos (designed using AutoCAD, Rhino, and Grasshopper)

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

Article source: María Langarita and Víctor Navarro

Matadero Madrid’s elevated water tower  is a singular work: a concrete structure standing 25 meters high and 14 in diameter, located on the southern edge of the new contemporary creation space. The tower, which originally was surrounded by small garden pavilions for workers at the complex, now rests on a lot that has functioned in recent years as a makeshift parking zone and a space for stock and support of artistic activities.  This earth-covered area, in which some of the plant species that inhabited the gardens still survive, will, in the near future, cover an underground transport hub and be transformed into a paved plaza providing access to the cultural facility.
