A post-natural creature

Site




2009 | ACADEMIC PROJECT, ETSAM.


Brief

The aim of the project was to design a visitor center for a derelict park in the south of Madrid.

Proposal
I project the birth of a new species of architecture. It is a byproduct of the landscape and it feeds on debris and branches. The visitor center floats on the river, filtering the water, creating new islands of sediment and providing shelter to an endangered species of bird.

Tutors
Cristina Díaz  & Efrén GarcíaHeads of Unit 5 at the Architectural Association.
