Projects designed by G1L Architects that took part in important International Architecture Competitions. Here are some examples: Dubai Tower, Intelligent Building Manzana 4 in Zaragoza or Buildings 8 & 9 in Matadero Madrid Cultural Center.
Competition entry for a tall building used as an observation deck. The project combines shape and function in an amazing way: it takes a waxing moon shape, which will be lit at the night skyline of the city. At the same time, it has got a 40m. diameter ferris wheel at its top, that comes in and out of the moon, getting magnificent views of the city, with its highest point at 170m. above the ground.
A mixed use project comprising offices, commercial and residential. The residential area consists of 160 dwellings including 72 duplexes. The main component of the project is the treatment of its corner: during daylight it is a translucent feature, clad with metallic meshes, at night time it becomes a self-illuminated geometry, a reference to the city’s new skyline.
This project transforms two warehouses belonging to the old slaughterhouse in Madrid into spaces for artistic activities suitable for individuals or groups such as exhibitions or concerts. Starting from a basic space or unit with a hexagonal section, they can work independently or join together and form greater spaces. The units are piled along different sections of the warehouse in a different way and number, so they also leave empty spaces that get joined and create big open spaces.
