“From the infrastructure for basic services to the structure of open architecture”, Alejandro Aravena

 

In the 15th edition of the Venice Biennale, that began last week, Alejandro Aravena invites us to look at new fields of action, projects that intend to improve life quality and stories of success that are worth getting to know. Thus, Samuel Gonçalves, founder of the Summary studio, the youngest invited, was selected to present his work “infrastructure-structure-architecture” with the purpose of showing the concept of his project: Gomos System (vimeo.com/144377983).

 

The Biennale exhibits two infrastructural pieces and a gomos system piece, so that we can get to know some elements that are part of its core. This installation also includes a table set with two screens that simultaneously play two videos made by Building Pictures. These videos are exclusive of the exhibition and they allow a comparison between the constructive process of the infrastructure as well as the constructive process of gomos system itself (vimeo.com/168989733).

 

The project consist of a flexible and evolutionary constructive system based on concrete units. It’s a modular system in which each module comes set from factory with all its finishes and equipments and it’s all assembled in loco. Thus it has became possible to build buildings in 3 months (3 days on set), which is 7 times less than the average time, without compromising structural quality.
