MEMORIAL - COVID-19 VIRUS
Today we live one of the largest and most devastating diseases that have
devastated our daily lives, called "COVID-19", it is a cardiorespiratory disease, this
disease has ended the lives of thousands of people around the world, and with She
has caused a lot of pain and suffering to many families, that is why we as
architecture students have decided to specify this problem in a memorial, as a result
of what we are living, to provide our grain of sand.
The contribution of this project is to generate awareness by creating a vital public
place, totally suitable and free for all types of communities without any
distinction, designated as an area of reflective contemplation, to understand,
learn, reflect, in addition to remembering and informing, the situation current we are
facing; being able to have a place to contemplate the losses that have occurred,
giving the user a feeling of peace and harmony.
Directed and established in a national range, and with an impact at the
international level, since it was something that was lived around the world.
The factors that provide identity and are integrated into the design are the
conceptualization of the elements, contact with nature, lighting, accessibility,
materialization of feelings, touch and sobriety.
The internal activity that takes place in the memorial will be a space where users
remember and feel closer to their families in a way of offering; in the same way so
that future generations can be a point of evocation.
The objective to be achieved is to generate awareness by creating a vital public
place to understand, learn, remember, in addition to reflecting and reporting, on what
has been experienced, having a place to contemplate the losses that have been had
and how we overcome it.
Building a unique memorial, integrating colors, materials, surroundings and textures
materializing feelings. ● Wood: purity and naturalness.
● Steel: strength of all people.
● Concrete: sobriety with what was lived.
Play with the heights adding dynamism and movement to the shape representing the
ups and downs that we went through in the pandemic.
At the same time being in contact with nature, in an open space to perceive the
brush of the wind, the song of the water, making the user feel calm and one with
nature. That is why the project is located in the Basaltic Prisms of Huasca de
Ocampo, México, the environment of the area is totally natural we can see the
basaltic prisms which are formations created by the cooling of lava flows, it is one of
the areas most visited natural sites in Mexico thanks to its spectacular climate and
views.
