AUGUSTA EMERITA Roman Recycled Style
Augusta Emerita was a Roman city founded in the year 25 a.C. to accommodate the licensed soldiers of the legions X Gemina and V Alaudade. Now that city is Mérida. A new edition of the Ibero-American Social Work Congress was held in the city last October.
ENORME Studio we have designed the scenography of the Congress with a Roman Recyclable style. All the counters are reinterpretations of the altars where blood sacrifices were made, the stands of the sponsors small fronts of classical temples and the rest area a seat columns reproducing 1/1 scale of the columns of its hexastyle portico, with base of foam rubber imitating granite and shaft from cardboard tubes.
All the scenography was made with MDF wood planks of 19mm thickness and 60mm diameter cardboard tubes that will be recycled in the workshop "Fabrikando, Laboratory of experimental manufacturing in Self-construction and Reuse" that will be held during the month of November in the facilities of LaFábrika detodalavida, endorsed by the GRRR platform (Management for the Reuse and Redistribution of Resources).
