The project provides living and working spaces that allow a site to function self-sufficiently through modes of production. These “moments” that are placed throughout a light industrial zone on the outskirts of Granada, Spain, break from archaic forms of the city both spatially and socially. The challenge of the site is that it harbours numerous urban processes: interests of residential developers, private industrial areas (fragrance and plastics production), oversized commercial shopping malls, agricultural land and terra incognita.
The project responds to these conditions with a series of main spaces: an open theatre, workshops, classrooms, laboratories, living quarters for local flora researchers and a trust fund that administrates profits generated on-site for reinvestment in its maintenance and new projects.
Each of these moments of production are linked to a complimentary architectural response. The architecture of these moments are fragile, able to transform and mutate for future uses and exist in parallel with nature.
