Mount

Temporary pavilion for Museo Experimental El Eco • Mexico City • invited competition 2013

‘Mount’ is a social structure. Through its variation in shape it allows for all sorts of activities such as lectures, performances, concerts, screenings and parties. ‘Mount’ offers the experience of a viewing point at a scale relative to the courtyard condition of the El Eco Museum. Clearly visible from outside the patio, visitors can enjoy the view beyond the low enclosure wall onto the urban life outside. Its vertical landscape is organised into different zones, which lend themselves to specific uses such as auditorium-like seating, flat areas for lying down or stair-like paths. The entire structure is made of black rubber, which evokes associations with everyday products like car tires, but here allows for a much closer personal contact with the industrial material.
