Emergency Scenery
by Unparelld'arquitectes

Shortlisted for small building of the year at Dezeen Awards 2020, Unparelld'arquitectes has built an arched public shelter in Spain, intended to be used as a performance backdrop to encourage activity on the street.

The studio used the four buttresses that support a party wall to replace a house that was demolished to improve the area's street alignment.

A construction of three vaults and four niches is offered to the public space as a porous facade, accompanied by a minimum of stands.

It is an unfinished and appropriable structure, a scenographic support for urban life.
