La chabola is an architectural exercise based on a experimental constructive system made out of tape.
In response to the brief: an installation in a public space with 20 standard wooden boards, the objective was to make the minimum intervention possible on the given material.
Inspired by physiotherapists and how they use kinesiology tape in human muscles, we studied how this knowledge could be translated and implemented into an architectural context, resulting in a temporary method of connecting different panels together.
Interested in this precise point where two very different worlds can overlap, this project propose a strabic approach to architecture; the outcome is an improvised shantyesque space that gets through and overflows the discipline, generating an anarchic vocabulary disconnected from any preexisting reference.
