The word chamber refers to an enclosed space or cavity as in a camera and it can also be used to denote a closed hall or room. Chamber is also synonymous of a private assembly or the body of people who meet in the hall or room. The project was limited to designing a construction employing these two meanings. On a rectangular site close to the Madrid ringroad and on a rock base we deposited a hermetic concrete box as though it were an object.
A large opening was provided to look over the adjoining garden. A box and its window: the camera and its lens. Our interest then turned to chamber as a meeting place. We introduced in the interior of the camera three volumes as suspended rooms. Meeting Room and Assembly Room at the two ends. One closed and metallic, another translucent and rock-like, they are attended from the third room which acts as the administrative server of both meeting rooms. The vacuum houses the volumes of the functional chambers. A spatially recurring theme. A space within a space.
