The materialization of this experience is achieved through two operations: The first is the definition of a support or topography, a landscape with smooth mounds, covered in grass and spongy vegetation, colored by an infinite number of wild flowers, and that is also crossed by a small creek. The second operation is the insertion of three mirrored aluminum bi-dimensional planes, which build a series of inside and outside spaces, eliminating the limits, disappearing, letting its reflected surroundings become the real project. These tapes are embedded in the ground and configured and structured using an abundance of concavities and convexities which allow self-supporting and standing on the same level of 3.2 m high and 25 mm. thickness.


We could point out that a way to measure a good city is the amount of activities and free access quality spaces that offers to its inhabitants. In that sense, the activities and projects intended for leisure are a good scale for measuring these aspects. The pavilion is inserted into this logic -in the middle of a public space- offering an unconventional experience to its visitors, which interacts with the project in various ways.


We wanted to change the center of the object's proposal to the experience of the subject, their interaction and that of others, and how their surroundings or context will be reflected and deformed with them and in front of them. In the end, we do not intend on building a closed proposal, but rather articulating a universe of sensations and experiences open to many interpretations.
