For this Project, we were required to fabricate an auditorium, surrounding steel plate structure cut as trapezes inside the offices of one of Mexico’s major steel companies. The 3/8” steel plates, simulating diamond jointless faces as origami, with the intention of being seen as though they were folded, not welded created a space of 4 m high by 15 m diameter. This steel structure was to be finished with an automotive paint job in a special institutional orange color. However in the middle of the installation process in a supervision visit in from the architect Caruso Torricella, the project suddenly took a different direction because we were asked to leave it as an industrial piece and eliminate the final coating creating a contrast between the interior, exterior and the landscape, eventhough it was not the initial intention.
