La Loza
Multi-purpose Building

The old industrial building that used to be there looked just like any number of other warehouses of the 60´s, with a concrete structure and wooden windowframes. Structurally it had the advantage of being very regular in the placement of its pillars in an eight-by-five grid. As a result, when the partitions and multiple additions had been removed, what emerged was an almost perfect hypostyle structure which was preserved a new point Zero; an ordered and undetermined space. In an algebraic organization, the elements occupy a neutral matrix. The grid of pillars, became a kind of blank score – an ordered space – on which to write the elements that organize the programme, punctuating the space as musical notes do on the staff. Understanding the grid as the matrix of the project also conditioned the resolution of its boundaries. A grid in principle always aspires to infinity, so that its enclosure is ephemeral or invisible. The No-stop City turns out to be the main thread of the film. It presents the wandering of several individuals interlinked in space, constantly referring to some of the famous collages produced by the architects Archizoom from the late 60s.
