Lanterns Sea Village
Lanterns Sea Village is the attempt to transform a vision into architecture: light tetrahedral solids that hover over the sea, suspended in one point. This vision is not born of a whim, but of a necessity: the need to minimize the impact on a beautiful landscape such as Tarifa, providing temporary housing for surfers who inhabit the waters. The aggregation of 100 tetrahedra extends linearly on the sea for the most part, rotating their disposal in the form of semi-square on the beach, to promote community life of the surfers. The tetrahedrons are designed for be made of bamboo, with main and secondary structures dominated by triangular geometry, the most rigid ever; tetrahedra are grouped by threes, realizing their balance thanks the mutual connections by the joints on the top of them.
