DOS FABRICAS is a proposal for an industrial structure that incorporates recycling and waste to energy facilities, together with an educational component of a public gallery. The juxtaposition between industrial processes that deal with garbage and art combines high and low culture elements that bring a new perspective to what these facilities can be. By using bio-receptive concrete and classical architecture elements, the proposal anticipates the aesthetics of a ruin by finding a connection between nature and infrastructure.
