Argos by Felipe Gonzalez-Pacheco

The images above are of a power generation building that serves a concrete factory in Colombia. It’s a really stunning building, and a nice departure from normative industrial architecture. Designed by Felipe Gonzalez-Pacheco, the pleated facade mimics vernacular woven objects while utilizing the material produced in the factory: low-density concrete. It reminded arch daily readers¬†of a screened parking structure in Chile and it reminds me of a brutalist Erwin Hauer.
