Client: Intermediae Matadero
Status: Competition 2nd Prize
Program: Temporary cover for the courtyard at Matadero Contemporary Art center
Scope: Concept design
This is not an umbrella is the confluence of both scientific and poetic reasonings: A lightweight, low cost and superficial solution which enables the climatic control of a large outdoor space.
The proposal is thought as a citizen participation action, incorporating the temporary use of 1.500 everyday objects (umbrellas) that convey a complex and rich new image, and provide the patio with a pleasant shade.
With no maintenance required, fast assembly and easy disassembly, nor waste generated, this simple solution can be configured in multiple ways throughout its useful life.
