Madrid-based Andrés Jaque Arquitectos have designed Escaravox lux and Escaravox sonum, two mobile structures for the courtyard of former slaughterhouse and current creative creation centre Matadero Madrid.
The use of these facilities would be organized in the same way as municipal tennis courts, which are booked by the hour. The materiality of the infrastructure is based on the idea of an odd assemblage of already inexpensive elements. Irrigating systems, Almería greenhouse fabrics, cheap plastic chairs.
A short of composite of ready mades, using existing technologies in a different way of that they were produced for. It is a technological reapropiation process, the office relates with the possibility of queer uses of available systems.
