Text description provided by the architects.

Over the course of the last few years, Intermediae’s Nave has been a space in which different artists and architects have been invited to participate. In dialogue with the architecture in which it is contained, the historic building of the old Legazpi Slaughterhouse, FAHR 021.3.now presents this new piece, La Hoja.

The prototype of this piece was originally designed for the public space, for the street, and was only intended to be temporary. Now, however, the intervention has taken on a greater dimension and is envisaged as an open experiment, an activity with no instructions for use in the context of the creation centre.
La Hoja is one of those inclusive and non-productive spaces of calm and beauty that enhance the collective and relationships, that are part of what is common to all of us.

It is a place where you can spend time, where you can programme, where everyone can write their own little story through an experience, no matter how short it is. The simplicity of the lines, the almost-empty, the light and ecological, the non-standardised. It is a space-workshop, conceived for a diverse and heterogeneous public, whose design is completed through experiences and diverse and free uses.

In search of surprise, welcome, with the gesture of an open hand. Open to action and the coexistence of the many different kinds of things that take place on this illuminated plane, in this place.Project information:Author – FAHR 021.3Curator – Javier Peña IbáñezProduction – Gerardo GorrisLight design – Carlos Alzueta BengoetxeaPhotography – Josema CutillasEngineering – CivilspotCollaboration – Garnica Plywood Local – Intermediae, Matadero, Madrid.
