Radioactive Control : LuzInterruptusis













"The installation Radioactive Control was created for the Dockville Festival in de Hamburg which tried to demonstrate, in a humorous tone, the paranoia that we are suffering from since the escape of radioactive material in Japan, has brought into question the safety systems at the nuclear power plants."

"Anonymous artist group LuzInterruptusis known for creating guerilla LED light installations throughout the streets of Madrid that they call “interventions.” Their work often features slightly illuminated everyday materials and figures that would otherwise go unnoticed."

The new town is the result of the transformation of old shipping containers in modular housing units equippedmetal grid, the shipping containers have given shape to a four-story building that houses 100 apartments of 24 square meters each. with every comfort.Mounted on a metal grid, the shipping containers have given shape to a four-story building that houses 100 apartments of 24 square meters each.
The architect Cattani said the thoughts that accompanied her work. “How do I prevent students, prospective tenants, they feel put in the box? Compelling needs have arisen. Necessary to conceive of a lightweight, transparent, and certainly not solid. Hence the idea of independent living, to avoid the stacking effect.”
The solution was found in a metal frame that acts as a structural support to the old shipping container, while allowing to stagger the units, and create new space for walkways, patios and balconies. “The metal structure – Cattani says – it allows a better identification of the different rooms, and enhances them through the external extensions that become terraces and balconies. The sequences of the transverse corridors giving access to the apartments on the façade create a succession of full and empty spaces that gives the structure a more visual transparency.”
The building designed by the metal structure is spread over four floors, which are distributed on the 100 studios. The first level was raised from the ground. In this way, the units here guests can enjoy the same privacy afforded to units on the upper floors. All the apartments overlook a garden inside and are equipped on both ends of the glass walls that allow natural lighting of spaces.
To ensure maximum heat and sound insulation, the walls of the container adjacent to the outside and those that divide the different units have been coated with fire walls in reinforced concrete 40cm wide, and come within layers of rubber to dampen vibrations.
The external facade is designed by the combination of the old “boxes” that has kept the undulating, repainted in metallic gray. Inside, the designers chose white walls and wooden furniture. Each studio has a bathroom and kitchen.

basurama (capítulo 1) presentación


creatividad y basura

DESDE EKUAZION RECOMENDAMOS LA PÁGINA WEB DE BASURAMA, EN LA QUE DISFRUTAREIS DE SUS ORIGINALES FORMAS DE REIVINDICACIÓN.

SUS ACCIONES POR TODO EL PLANETA, NO DEJAN A NADIE INDIFERENTE. 
UNA INTERESANTE MANERA DE EXPONER SU VISIÓN SOBRE LOS SISTEMAS PRODUCTIVOS ACTUALES Y SUS DESHECHOS. 

ARTE, ARQUITECTURA Y MUCHO MÁS SE FUSIONAN CON CREATIVIDAD EN SUS TRABAJOS.

NO TE PIERDAS SUS VIDEOS, ALGUNOS EJEMPLOS AL FINAL DE ESTA ENTRADA.




Basurama es un colectivo dedicado a la investigación, a la producción  y a la gestión cultural desde 2001 que ha centrado su área de estudio y actuación en los procesos productivos, la generación de desechos que éstos implican y sus posibilidades creativas.


Nacido en la Escuela de Arquitectura de Madrid ha ido evolucionando y adoptando nuevas formas desde sus orígenes. Pretende estudiar fenómenos inherentes a la producción masiva de basura real y virtual en la sociedad de consumo aportando nuevas visiones que actúen como generadores de pensamiento y actitud. Detecta resquicios dentro de estos procesos de generación y consumo que no sólo plantean interrogantes sobre nuestra forma de explotar los recursos, sino también sobre nuestra forma de pensar, de trabajar, de percibir la realidad.
Basurama se ha propuesto encontrar los residuos allí donde no sería tan obvio hallarlos y estudiar la basura en todos sus formatos. Con el tiempo Basurama se ha convertido en un evento pluridisciplinar en el que se desarrollan simultáneamente actividades dispares pero con un enfoque común. Tienen cabida todo tipo de talleres, ponencias, conciertos, proyecciones, concursos y edición de publicaciones. Se pretende también establecer una plataforma para que entren en contacto y trabajen juntos personajes del entramado social que ocupan lugares muy diferentes y sin embargo no están muy alejados. Basurama ha realizado proyectos en Bruselas, San Sebastián, São Paulo, Linz, Caracas, Palma de Mallorca, Corea, México DF, Santo Domingo, Buenos Aires, Lima y tiene su base en Madrid.
