The Intervention in the Domingo Gascón Square transforms a space formerly occupied by the municipal market back into its old condition as an open, public area. This also manages to house a public, recreational and semi-buried equipment of multiples uses.
Our philosophy in words. Social Fantasy and other writtings. Architectural strategies to enhance the people life: Amplification of their experiences and empowerment of their identities using different spatial formats.
MiS. Our digital sister. An agency for Virtual and Augmented Reality. Immersive experiences with Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear and the rest of VR perceptual interfaces.
The Architectural Association (London) where we´re Unit Masters since 2011 has invited us to lecture at his Public Programme.
From the beginning, the project was conceived as the possibility of making the “underground” visible, a construction devised as a radical manifestation of Madrid’s outskirts youthful spirit in general, and of Rivas´ youth groups in particular.
A little space to intensify the experience of exploring a parfum. An intimate bubble in-between a seductive flower and a technological space helmet. Small capsules to be implanted in stores, windows or special installations. A futuristic garden to empower the brand experience.
Books and magazines where you can find our projects, interviews and texts.
Recycling old public buildings to adapt them to new programmes attain here their maximum expression. The objective is to transform the old Town Hall, with all its municipal areas, in the new Youth Center.

In parallel to our proffesional activities, we have developed an feedback role with academia. Raids inside other fields beyond architecture has been one of our challenges.
Recently, we have finished our academic year 2012-13 at the AA. Here you can see some pics from the final exhibition of our Unit.
The project intensifies its principal purposes by defining its relationship with the environment; a new neighbour from Vallecas, silver and light amongst heavy brick buildings.
