The project “ONES” proposes movement not only as a visual propagation, but also through sound; an expansive wave. It interprets movement as an interaction between people and objects, using the Cloister of Sant Jordi and Sant Domènec as a sounding box that allows for the creation of a visual and auditory game solely originated by the spectator.
“ONES” is based on a set of bells that allow for the sound to be conducted thanks to the actions of the user. It all stems from this sounding box where a sound path is structured in diverse nebulae, at different heights and with different tones, creating a chain reaction generated from its point of origin.
The work acquires a luminescent behaviour as night falls in the courtyard. The set of bells makes up a starry sky in the courtyard. The visitor can continue interacting with the movement even when the daylight fades and darkness creeps over the intervention.
The team LA+LA is made up by Aina Santanach, Ana Badia, Laura Molina and Lara Tudó, all friends and architects. They studied architecture together at the Vallès School of Architecture (ETSAV).
During their studies, Ana and Laura worked as part of the team RESSÒ which took part in the international competition Solar Decathlon Europe 2014 where they won the first prize in Architecture, (Jury: Wang Shu). Later on they were selected for the FAD 2017 awards and for the Biennale Architettura di Venezia 2018.
Ana has combined the practice of architecture with editorial design, editing the architecture and technology book Deep Skin. Lara was part of the team Ringo Rango that was selected for the Biennale Architettura di Venezia 2018 and Aina participated in the competition OpenGap with the project A(rt)BBEY, where she got an honourable mention. She currently combines the practice of architecture with jewellery design at the Official Association of Jewellers, Goldsmiths, Watchmakers and Gemologists of Catalonia (JORGC).
All four have participated in exchanges with different universities from around the world (Chicago, São Paulo and Brussels), and they currently work in different offices connected to the world of architecture, interior design and graphic design.
