Architecture Light Embassy

1. Crossroads of spaces.The project materialises at the crossroads of the virtual space for knowledge (university), the virtual space for archived knowledge (blog) and the physical space for encounters (pavilion).

2. Crossover of projects.The geometry of the pavilion arises from the crossover of the projects: the projects and materials prepared by the students are projected on supported surfaces within the exhibition hall. The space of the pavilion envelops the projected projects.

3. Inside and outside.The open body of the ALE attracts the attention of the visitors in the Centro-Centro and encourages them to walk in, look around or sit down on the specially-designed furniture.

4. Possible futures.ALE is a small multi-purpose pavilion. It can be used for anything from projections to encounters. Its ephemeral design makes for easy dismantling and recycling. Nevertheless, upon a request from the institution, it shall remain within Centro-Centro after the exhibition, available to the Madrid council for future programmes.
