We have meant to build an uncertain experience, a situation of estrangement, one which we do not intend on controlling, as the possibilities of reflection and deformation provoked by the concave and convex mirrored steel bi-dimensional planes are infinite. We have multiplied the amount of reflecting and deformation situations in order to produce an interaction belonging to a world of illusions, more surreal than real. We want the visitor to be expectant of what is going to surprise them in the next place.
The project is a pavilion for leisure, located in Parque Araucano, a public park in the city of Santiago. The pavilion aims to produce an interaction with park users through its mirrored concave and convex curves which generate a universe of multiplications and deformations of people and the surrounding environment.
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 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.
