Big Bang Movie
The project is located in a 2-story rooftop which is always open to public, with direct access from the street level and the indoor commercial space. It sets an outdoor public platform for social interactions.
The design was conceptualized as an explosion of colors in the public rooftop of the commercial building, releasing colorful debris from the epicenter to the sides, which becomes either seating features or shading structures.
In the epicenter of the explosion emerges a hill of activities, dividing the multifunctional platform in 2 areas. One side of the hill is dedicated to playful activities for the entertainment of the younger visitors, such us slopes, tunnels, climbing surfaces, etc…
The other side of the hill was designed to host small gatherings, events and workshops, not only for kids but for youngsters and adults as well, and therefore it features different types of tribunes and mini-amphitheaters.
The resulting intervention is rendered as a system of 4 transversal stripes of triangulated colors and various activities, occupying the rooftop from border to border. A public platform for social interactions and dynamics impossible to miss when walking through the rooftop.

The Painted Scape is a 2d architectural configuration, which is painted and/or coated to cover a significant area of an existing urban scape. This architectural configuration only intervenes – whether vertically or horizontally - on the surface of the space.
The interaction takes place in the interface between the user and the painted surfaces - vertical or horizontal - in which the users finds information, signals, functional areas and spaces.
The main objective of the painted scape is to call attention to the existing space, inject it with a unique identity, and highlight spatial functions with 2d aesthetics. Through these actions, this intervention makes a formerly unremarkable space an attraction for users and customers.
