Composition exercise in Marco de Canaveses
I consider the project a composition, it’s an industrial complex and it represent a previous study for infrastructures to the quarry of Granidense’s company, that provided real data where the study was developed. The task of seizing the everyday issues of the quarries formed part of the theoretical research to acquire the necessary knowledge to design with practical intelligence the functional elements of the program, since the program is quite unusual. The program’s components have a considerable extension, it is divided in a main pavilion with 3 workspaces, 2 warehouses and the management volume.
The project was designed to compete with the pavilions ordered by catalog that haunt the territory. In this sense, the relationship between functionality / economy resources determined the design outlines. My main goal whit this proposition was to show that architecture help to serve all human activities, not just houses, schools or museums, even when it’s temporary.
