David Lee and Anthony Stahl, founders of Metous Studio and students at California Polytechnic State University, recently presented their Barrio de los Paracaidistas project to the Architecture Department of Cal Poly. Winners of the 2010 Chicago Mock Firm Competition, Lee and Stahl share their design process, collaboration, slides, diagrams and renderings, Q and A session, and why they were motivated to enter the Chicago Mock Firm Competition.
We featured Metous Studio and the Barrio de los Paracaidistas project in June. Here you will find a full write up, renderings, and drawings.
Metous Studio, a young mock firm of 10 undergraduate architecture students from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo working under the guidance of the head partners David Lee and Anthony Stahl, have designed a fresh and dynamic housing tower for Mexio City. Placing above 30 international entries, Lee and Stahl’s tower has been awarded first prize in the 2010 Mock Firms International Skyscraper Challenge: Collegiate Division. Their approach reconfigures the traditional Mexican street as an open-air high-rise to provide unlimited potential for a new type of urban environment. ”The meaning of the tower is a living being that breathes in the city and is truly defined by Mexican culture and people,” explained Lee and Stahl.
Check out some great images, diagrams and much more about the award winning project after the break.
