COMPETITION OPEN AIR SCULPTURE MUSEUM IN LEGANÉS (Selected 7/264)
This project is an extension of the existing building, within the park where the sculptures are exhibited, to show the works in small format or materials with little resistance to an open air environment.
We start from the concept of the forest, the forests that existed in the area in ancient times, and from the concept of the plateau from Deleuze and Guattari as space without continuous boundaries.
The organizing structure of the space is composed of longitudinal paths that thematically distribute the sculptures and transversal paths that give rise to contrasting visions between the sculptures of the various theme areas.
We thus transform the existing building leaving the two lengthwise bars extending them with the building-paths that are introduced into the forest.
The existing building is freed of all interior walls and is left in a raw state. The operations are done with dismountable metal structures and closing systems comprising polycarbonate sheets and fabrics. On the outside is added a layer of insulation and black impermeable fabric.
The building-paths containing the structures are also formed by dismountable metallic structures, polycarbonate sheets and metallic textiles.
The vision of the structures intermingles with the movement of the surrounding vehicles and people.
The sculpture forest has diffuse boundaries, it is not a blunt rectilinear fence, rather it is a fairly thin metallic fabric that moves sinuously among the trees.
The forest vegetation is autochthonous, containing wild plants that need little tendering.
