First Place. "The Drop"
The idea about this project was to produce a vortex using the drop of water as the inspiration. This condition organized the rest of the project around it. The decision for giving this project the first place was that it was not an enclosed building and offered direct contact with the canals but at the same time producing a "hazy atmosphere" with the interaction of the material from the vortex, the sunlight and the water reflection. The project's main concern was the production of an effect by magnifying the intensity of the drop. The project was resolved with analog techniques.
