La Chabola

«La Chabola» is an architectural exercise based on an experimental constructive system commissioned by Concéntrico – International Architecture and Design Festival of Logroño.

In response to the brief: an installation in a public space with 20 standard wooden boards the objetive was to make the minimum intervention possible on the given material. How could we create an architectural entity with a removable constructive thinking?

Inspired by physiotherapists and how kinesiology tape is used in human muscles Jorge studied how this knowledge could be translated and implemented into an architectural context  «At the end bones and muscles are part of one of the most intelligent structures we can think of».

The outcome is an anarchic method of connecting different wooden surfaces together just with tape. This improvised shanty-esque pavilion generates a visually fragile yet constructively stiff vocabulary – a temporary building strategy that can be further translated into furniture, interiors, ocasional housing or bigger architectural installations.
