Art Gallery in the Park
ODE in collaboration with Brazil Art Gallery sees the potential to express, through architecture, the potency of forms within nature. The terrain was strategically selected, seeking to create an emblematic exhibitions pavilion at the heart of the high end residential condominium, in the intersection point between the Golf Course, the Hotel, and the extensive green located in the center of the enterprise. The terrain is characterized by downward slopes that take advantage of the breathtaking landscape, a hidden treasure of the area. The whole of the design is based in the fluid movement of the adjacent street, which swerves into the heart of condominium. Mirroring this gesture, a series of strips create a diagramatic grid, suggesting immersion and inward movement, into the forest. The proposed gallery emerges from the central strips, at once level with the terrain and increasing in volume and height through the topological differences within the terrain.
