In a small craft of the old slaughterhouse of Madrid, the ship 8 B, the tiles have been removed from a housing in poor condition, have been stacked and introduced in to meet a need. So far could the summary of this intervention.
The slaughter in Madrid was designed around 1907 and built during the second decade of the twentieth century by Luis Bellido, municipal architect. For nearly sixty years he was working as a large pantry in the downtown area. Throughout this time his virtues amply demonstrated functional and spatial qualities. More contentious has proved, over the years, the style applied to their walls, far from the first approaches to the modern movement that is beginning to explore this type of industrial buildings in Germany, Holland and France. Since the eighties, the slaughterhouse was moved to the outskirts of the city. The small “industrial city” designed by Bell fell into neglect and oblivion. For some years the city of Madrid wants to turn this complex damaged in a leading cultural engine for the city.
The ship 8 B is the space for administrative operations. A small working area, a warehouse and a multipurpose space for lectures and presentations. Originally a support rooms for storage of debris produced in the vessel 8, where they dried and salted skins. A ship smaller but very interesting space.
The priority of the intervention was to restore a flat tile roof on boards and patched on thin bricks, making a structural strengthening and conditioning all the interior, thermally and acoustically, to serve new uses. This process had been followed previously in some other ships of the plant, and as a result, accumulated piles of rubble tile, lumber, paving stones and slabs of granite, waiting to be transferred to landfill.
I think that this project arose from the opportunity. Have discovered an opportunity in those ruins.
On the way to explore all reasonable possibilities, the construction system becomes a generator project in the resting place of a particular ethical position to rehabilitation, to the architecture.
How does that object found? How does the flat roof? How stacked? How is rigged? What are their organoleptic characteristics, weight? How do you join? These are some of the questions in the process. The absence of some elements of the rig produces lattices, the passage of light. Sometimes a whole piece for the walls, other, half a piece for the coatings. The problem of corners, lintels. Displayed the universal problems of architecture. At the same time and with the same intensity also appear labor and imperfection. The imperfection of man and the old, of the recovery. I remember a naive order for the work: “Jose, tuércete it does not matter” and an answer, a lesson from the Guardian: “I do not go haywire twist that there is always time.” A lot of work full of vibration. The vibrations of the artisan group, which claims Craftsman Richard Sennett.
Like that cabin in the woods of the Swedish architect Ralph Erskine, the stacking logs to protect against the harsh winter, this project is also bioclimatic. Bioclimatic because the shingle contributes to the thermal and acoustic comfort and sustainable because it reinvents itself with what you have at your fingertips. Is bioclimatic architecture and people, as these households-coated ceramic fireplace found in the province of Soria.
