CARTOONS' LIBRARY | ARCHITECTURE 2009

SPECULATIVE ARCHITECTURE PROJECT

HOW CAN ARCHITECTURE COMMUNICATE A "CARTOONS' SQUARE" IN A NARRATIVE SPACE?

EVERYTHING STARTS WITH A CARTOON SITTING ON A SQUARE, QUESTIONING IF IT HAS, OR NOT, THE PERFECT SHAPE: "DES EN QUADRADO". I'VE STARTED ALL THE CREATIVE PROCESS WITH A SQUARE DECONSTRUCTION, FROM DRAWINGS TO THE MODEL, AND THEREFORE TO ARCHITECTURE SPACE. THE AIM WAS TO DEVELOP AN OBJECT WHICH COULD BE EXPERIENCED AS AN OPEN / 3D CARTOON'S SQUARE, AND THEREFORE MAKING THE VIEWER PART OF THE STORY.

THE COLD AREAS | EXHIBITION AREA + ENTRANCE + CIRCULATIONS
