IBRY

MEMORY "Is a house, and simultaneously a factory of diffuse illumination, a refuge for the creativity of a young artist, deeply involved and of strong activity. Few forms, few colors and textures, elementary resources, intense spaciousness". Arq. Titular Prof. - Marcelo Danza (Publication dEspacio 02- 9/2005) Is the house and factory of the Uruguayan Plastic Artist Alejandro Turell; it is located in the neighbourhood Punta Carretas of Montevideo between a preexisting residential architecture, urbanly consolidated and of strong charactic of neighbourhood. The organization is in three levels (above, the Factory/in an intermediate level, livingroom diningroom kitchen/and down stairs the bedrooms): a yard to the front and a yard to the bottom. The work is made up with "masses that float" on different scales and materialities, that are articulating/creating the different places within the place.”
