<3
-Love at the limit of east Macaronesia- explores new ways of creating communities in relation to the landscape where they are located in, to not productive time, to leisure and to recess. It neglects all notions of privacy and segregation due to unproductive hotel typologies that are vicious for the landscape and the local community.
.
The project consists on a virtual construction yet to be developed through climatic parameters and scenographic ones, but it takes place as a material and formal enforcement thanks to its relation with the territory and the productive landscape of La Geria in Lanzarote.
.
The augmented scenography is constructed by taking Lanzarote postcards as a tool for a virtual composition. These condensed paradises are interpreted as thermodynamic data. An image becomes an architecture, and a chimera of vacational clichés forms the augmented landscape.
.
Leaving behind the individual touristic visit as a unproductive model, we propose the vacational experience of our time, understanding the millennial love <3 as a complex structure. A new domesticity to solve as architects. Parameters as sexuality, intimacy, temporality, immediacy and virtual community combine with a natural and ambiguous context.
