From the ground to the table.

MarbleCast and Elements of Nature.

This project was about finding a balance between the irregular and organic characteristics of the soil and the perfection and uniformity of a sphere. All this through adaptation.
Entra is a set of bowls that represent a memory of a specific place. They are personal and all different from one another.
Modular pavement system
Vall de Hebrón is the 3rd biggest neighborhood in Barcelona. The area was urbanized for the Olympic Games, 1992. There is a lot of free space perfect for small wheel sports like skating.
After visiting this place we noticed a big problem though, the pavement. It has holes, nature breaks through, and has different types of cement. This makes it dangerous, both for young and elderly pedestrians. 
Hex prevents uncontrolled future breaks. Also, it allows grass to grow through and makes it easier to fix thanks to the use of patches.
The core of the structure is the hexagonal shape, which can be divided into other shapes to create a modular patch system to fix certain areas. We also thought about the tree surroundings. That way the pavement adapts to nature and not the other way around.
