example of true urban divergence, the site is located on the
edge of an industrial zone, across from a line of housing buildings.
The project positions a floating horizontal form behind the
existing line of trees, blocking most of the views into the
yard behind. The construction is superimposed over the protective
sheath that changes colour and level of transparency according
to function, thus also echoing the repetition of the facades
opposite. In the back, the yard is bordered by a solid concrete
wall on one side and a line of iron slabs on the other. A covered
structure with concrete walls and a light steel roof construction
houses recycling facilities; its wide overhangs provide outside
workspace in all weather conditions. The rusty colour of all
visible metal constructions echoes the prevailing colour scheme
of the yard, filled with crushed cars and various broken machinery.
