Yin-yang Project. Real Ceiling

We have re-edited Yin Yang Project again from IE University in collaboration with the municipality of Segovia. The structure designed and mounted during the course Construction Systems III under the coordination of Professor Fermin Blanco, can be seen in the Mint (Casa de la Moneda).

“Real Ceiling” is the result of a workshop based on the use of wood in architecture. After the system approach, the team has been focused on two intensive sessions; a theoretical framework to open the discussion and the practical part to create and mount the structure during an eminently practical session.

The main educational goal of this experience is creating the proper atmosphere for teamwork, discussion and ideas debate. All of this by using wood, modular and removable systems and as a working tool.

Beyond the final solution, (as a result of different parameters) the importance here is based on the process. CONSTRUCTION as life, is a PROCESS.

We hope you will enjoy the pictures!
