Wednesday, March 9th, 2011

ae.i.ou Design Project, 2007

This project proposes a pavilion f0r the Botanic Gardens at the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras Campus. The space serves as a porous destination, where students and visitors observe and inhabit the rhizosphere -- the region of soil where roots, fungi and microorganisms interact symbiotically, stimulating growth and nutrient absorption. The Root Pavilion allows students to learn about this essential zone by experiencing a distorted column field that supports mock up roots that hang above the same plants encountered on the ground surface.

The proposal for the Temporary Gallery Competition explores the use of the traffic cone as a building block that bridges urbanism, art and architecture. We focused on studying the traffic cone’s capacity to form new systems -- topographies, surfaces and spaces -- through their appropriation and choreography. When cut at different heights, new potentials and re-use applications of the traffic cone emerged: from planters, to a diversity of architectonic components like brise-soleils, permeable surfaces, and furniture.
