Barcelon World Race
For the Barcelona World Race, we proposed a monolithic-ship which is an abstraction of a boat as would be perceived on the horizon. It is maintained upright by a water counterweight that is filled and emptied in the opening and closing ceremonies of the event. The monolith is installed on top of a platform composing of different coloured glass surfaces that reflect the sky, representing the seas that the boats will cross during the race. A dynamic and surprising monolith that moves thanks to water and air. Martín Azúa 2006 / Photos Martín Azúa.
