Text description provided by the architects. 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.

Floor Plan

Four moments of the exposition were highlighted in each container. In this way, each independent unit, was understood completely by following the entire circuit. In the first level of the artefact, 2 containers were installed in an “L” shape. Half a module was divided as to contain the other “L”, placed in the opposite way in the second level, in order to leave free spaces between the built volumes.

Through the voids formed in between the containers, one could see the beautiful façade of the MAC (Museo de Arte Contemporáneo of Santiago).So, the way in which the containers were put together and the relation among what was built and the spaces that were left between them, revealed the link between the gallery and its urban context. In this way, the artefact was incorporated by its surroundings, becoming a spatial element, with different depths, recognizable by its shape and cavities.

This artefact, whose only intention was to be there for a limited time, these boxes that were simply assembled one on top of the other, attracted the passers-by to penetrate them in order to disrupt everyday life in an invitation to explore it.
