Master of Architecture (MArch)
This thesis is an exploration of the frictions between the self and the external worlds, using architecture as a woven structure that oscillates between the two worlds. This structure allows us to understand our individual intimacies in the midst of constant exposure. It is the sum of this encounters that will constitute the final form of the architecture.
Spanish Ambassador’s House: The endless outsider
“I am the center of the house, but in control. I am the center under observation”.
My thesis proposal is bound for the Spanish Ambassadress in Lower Manhattan, New York City. The house is a dwelling of social and business encounters and the ambassadress´ claim for intimacy and her endless search for identity, like “water drops in an empty bath”.
Working method: Textile Analogue through masonry
To test this, I have developed a drawing method that will activate a procedure of making that will reinform an architecture. These drawings conflate the subjective character of my imagination and the very concrete procedure of masonry construction.
