27 Pillars

Interior view of model showing reflective wall, window, and pillars

by Alejandra Avalos Guerrero (MArch II ’21)

A little building in a little plot.

The building is a rectangle protected and organized by a forest of natural and artificial pillars. Each of these twenty-seven pillars has different sizes, shapes, and materials. On the inside, six of these pillars are gently misaligned to the rest. Sometimes, the pillars have walls that don‘t touch the floor, you can always see everyone’s shoes or the garden.

A very simple yet very complex building.
