BNKR @ MM ABOVE We were invited to participate with a piece on the shows international architecture between Mexico and Spain "Above MM". The theme of the piece was free, provided it stays within the limits of the wooden box which gave us. The box/piece will tour universities and museums in Mexico and Spain along with the the other architects participating. In the film our poster and photos of the piece.

Text of the piece as a starting point use an element of our digital world: "QR codes". QR codes are codes graphics information, unique and unrepeatable, whose function is to a specific web site. What happens if we give materiality to the modulation of the QR code BNKR website? What if what we extruded to create space? And if we imagine this new volume as an urban topography as a micro city? In this way, we generate a place physical and at the same time a digital place. We managed to make this new landscape a portal between the digital world and the real world, a constant duality between the existent and the nonexistent.

We invite you to follow the Above MM page:https://www.facebook.com/aboveMM (Translated by Bing)

New Bunkertoon: Furer Sáizar

Now that Consuelo Sáizar has been appearing a lot in the media these past days, we remembered an anecdote from when she was the Director of Conaculta. The story tells that she treated architects so badly that some of them got stomach-sick the day they had project revision or construction visits. They also say, but we cannot asure, that she actually hit one of them. Fortunately, all regimes come to an end. Heil Saizar!

World Expos are the perfect excuse to explore new ideas and ways to approach architecture. Instead of presenting the vast diversity and richness of Mexican cuisine as the competition brief established, we decided on focusing on a national treasure that today forms part of the cultural legacy of many countries in the world: the Mexican Chili. The chili originated in Mexico and in the 16th century disseminated all over the world when the spanish discovered America. Our pavilion is an opportunity to explore the 145 types of Mexican chili in their natural state through a green roof that becomes the main attraction of the exhibition.

Sillón calleveinte: DRAFT!

Proyecto calleveinte reúne cada año a 20 talentos de arquitectura, interiorismo, diseño y arte, para crear piezas únicas o hacer sus propias versiones de mobiliario del catálogo de calleveinte. Estas piezas son subastadas y el total de los fondos recaudados son donados a la Fundación Rebeca de Alba AC para niños y jóvenes con cáncer. Este año fuimos invitados a participar interviniendo una pieza.

Nuestra pieza se llama "Draft!". La idea fue literalmente plasmar en la tela del sillón una lluvia de ideas de cuando realizamos un croquis. Los diferentes bosquejos, las anotaciones, las medidas y demás rayones que comprenden un croquis forman parte del sillón. Es un mueble que aparenta estar en un proceso de diseño, que aún no esta terminado. Para esta pieza colaboramos con el artista Renato Garza Cervera. Las subasta será mañana jueves 06 de noviembre.

Sneak Preview: BNKR + FACTOR EFICIENCIA Pavilion in Juarez

Given the success of our Upcycling Pavilion in CIHAC last year, the State Government of Chihuahua invited us to build a pavilion in Juarez in the north of Mexico in their Book Fair 2013. We inaugurated it last week and it was yet another success in the fair. We conceived it as a social topography for the kids to climb, people to use it to sit down and read, as a small forum for lectures and many other uses that were improvised during the fair. We will be publishing the complete project soon.

The Earthscraper started out as a research project for a competition. It is such a powerful idea that it has travelled around the world and has been published in more than 250,000 sites, magazines, books and TV shows/news.

We recently submitted a proposal for a Hotel in the coast of the small town of Jurmala in Latvia. The project brief specified that the theme of this new leisure hotel was music. The program had to accommodate different inner and outdoor auditoriums as well as the rooms for the hotel and service areas. The site had some existing buildings on it but it was up to each proposal to conserve them or start from scratch. We kept one of the main buildings for the hotel rooms and created new buildings to accommodate its public areas.
