Our project consists of an architectural construction in
the form of a big cowboy hat. The material we use will be
the typical red brickstone, which is so frequently seen
in buildings in the periphery of Madrid. The work will take
place in a wasteland in Legazpi. We deliberately flew from
an urbanized space like a square or underground station.
Wastelands belong to the public space although we usually
don’t visit them and, even less, spend time there.
It is part of the public space, inhospitable, desolated,
an urban desert.
Its size as well as the materials and the location of the
hat are proper features of an architectural construction.
Nevertheless, the fact that it has no access to the interior
reveals it as a non-habitable space. The work avails itself
of architectural form and material in order to establish
a dialogue between the city and its buildings. The idea
of this project is to create a work in concordance with
the urban context of Arganzuela, a funny but also respectful
work, a play upon similarities and urban languages
