The concept

Magia diseno as Architects

The design and assembly of the Fourth Bienniale in the old train station of Santiago required to face three main variables: SPACE, which suggests the use of the vertical dimension of the nave of the station, more than twenty meters high. THE TIMELINESS, which is conditional on the assembly of three days, a period of three weeks and the unknown fate of the proposed support. The material, which requires to enhance the properties of thousand sheets of plywood SELEX CMPC 122cm x 244cm. To resolve this problem we created a self-imposed rule: USE THE MATERIAL IN ITS ORIGINAL DIMENSIONS OF MANUFACTURING series so not to condition the second use of the material. This provides a triangular base module (122cm. x 244cm.) The simpliest and self-supporting structure allowing vertical and horizontal growth.
