Plaza Escuelas Trevijano

A piece of paper cannot hold itself up, but if we fold it several times in precise places, it can hold itself up and much more. A wood panel cannot hold itself up, but if we fold it several times in precise places, it, too, can hold itself up and much more: take, for example, the information pavilion for this third edition of Concéntrico.
The idea is simple: we want to create an icon with a touch of attraction, as a means of awakening the curiosity and attention of citizens. What’s more, we want to demonstrate that Garnica wood panels are self-supporting; we will not create any sort of supporting structure or foundation—we will only use the materials provided, nothing more or less. Just the 39 panels. The construction, too, is simple. We will connect the panels with hinges, allowing them to move like paper. Once all of the panels have been bound to this element, voila! Gravity will do its work.
A folded piece of paper. A work of origami.
