G1L Architects in International Architecture Competitions

 

DUBAI TOWER

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.

Every night the moon will light up Dubai’s skyline, creating an icon in the city

MANZANA 4 ZARAGOZA

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.

MATADERO MADRID: BUILDINGS 8&9

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.

A multicultural hub, from a simple base room, we create a beehive of activities.

 

The hexagons will dialog with the sheltering building that wraps them up.
