We had the assignment to build a gallery by using four 20-foot containers. The idea was to install, during 3 days, an exhibition in front of an iconic building from the city of Santiago in Chile. They gave us four prerequisites on which to base our work: 1.- Module: four 20-foot shipping containers. 2.- Time: temporary duration. 3.- Program: exhibition. 4.- Place: dialogue between the new artefact and an iconic building of the city. 4 containers + assembly time + exhibition + dialogue with urban symbol = New Artefact With the idea of working with a complete module we defined a system of encounters between them, like Lego pieces. The primary unit was a volume of 6.00 x 2.50 x 2.50 m. The task was to establish a link between the 4 modules, in order to assemble and disassemble them during a limited time and how these modules, working together, could relate to its urban context. In addition, a number of elements from the brand were displayed inside.
