Creators' Corner

Stereotomic interior landscapes

In collaboration with RUMEX

The workshop explores the potential of space-making through the direct use of natural stone materials: from translucent onyx to highly reflective black marbles. The different interactions of the participants with the materials, -where they will create different scapes to scale- will explore different iterations among materials in order to create a variety of interior spaces.

Date and time: 5 December 2022, 10:30AM

Conducted by Juan Roldan

Language and Context: Shape-Making and Placemaking

If you can distil a scent from a flower, why not distil an aesthetic from a city? How can we extract the very essence of a place? Can we create a condensed architectural language that embodies climate, history, identity and culture? Is it possible to form an aesthetic that speaks to us in this way?

Let’s experiment together.

Shape-Making and Placemaking – a workshop exploring architectural language through model making.
