I think this is a great project. Designed by Roberto Ercilla, the project protects escalators that hoist visitors and the elderly through some pretty historic-looking portions of Vitoria, Spain. The project’s simple, repeating structural frame shifts to create enough variation that it seems like a compelling space to visit. But when I read in the project description, it leads to more questions than answers: ”?The basic stainless steel and glass portico acts similarly to the shots of a film, by means of rotary movements around a virtual axis in sequences of one metre distances.”
Over the weekend, I lamented to a friend of mine that architecture school is where good writing goes to die. Sure, I learned how to do some sassy [re]formatting things with brakets, but mostly I [for]got how to use my words clearly while learning how function in a constant state of sleep deprivation. Now, I can’t figure out if the sleep deprivation has caught up with me, and I can’t comprehend any kind of complex writing, or if architects tend to overdo it when they sit down to their keyboards.
