BANCOS PARA COMPARTIR
Between our home and our work, the Sunday morning "churros", the neighborhood market, the florists of Tirso de Molina, and beneath that sky so blue that they say we have, there is a place that is ours.
So far we could not furnish it.
We think we can not be as individuals the ones who determine the composition of the furniture that we all use, so we wanted to reduce the design to a minimum, we do not believe that modern are those banks with large pieces of high-tech concrete, or that "God is in the details" at this time. We believe that the to be modern is to return the decision-making to whom it belongs.
So our design is reduced to the SYSTEMATIZATION of a module. A cube (450 x 450 mm) of triangulated steel tubes, which generates the concave structure necessary to contain future the future plug. The structure that we propose will be isotropic in their faces and edges, and will be perforated throughout its development to let a completely free association between modules.
For being such an elementary module, FLEXIBILITY will be one of its main features, it may be a bank, but also a small urban garden, a fountain, fresh flowers, an umbrella or anything that we could need to develop some activity in our city.
From two banks where we talk with the neighbors in our narrow sidewalk, to a big shaded area in the main square with fresh water sources to survive the summer in Madrid.
We believe in architecture and design stripped of vanity, at the service of the users. A new design that will shelter the activities of the City of All.
