In July 2006, Argos by MGP Arquitectura y Urbanismo is the winner of an architectural contest, for the resolution of a “skin” for a technical building containing an self generation electrical plant for cement factory. The Factory wanted to generate also a corporative image with the building.
Their purpose became a mutual opportunity to generate an experimentation laboratory of technical possibilities with the material they produce, with very low density concretes.
In a parallel way with the technical solution designers found a high symbolic value in cultural textures found in the 3 sites the project was built, which had manual work implied, making an industrial building a reference for the local people of each site.
As a result they designed 2 great format prefabricated pieces placed in a way to simulate the textures made by the locals in fibers to fabricate artisanal objects.
