Windows at an Exhibition: The Flattened Commercial Space as Public Interface
Ruiz Otaolaurruchi, Pablo Daniel
Master of Arts
This project aims to translate our present cultural condition of saturation, flatness, and simultaneity (a condition found both in our screens and in our surroundings) into a new kind of public and commercial space. In order to produce such architecture, this project develops “windows” that serve as an interface—that is, a platform where one can actually find, access, or interact with different layers and worlds. The main components of the project are a series of in-transit shops, connected to a metro station, and a public plaza where windows allow pedestrians to access the transit infrastructure below.
