UTDT Manifesto
We propose recognize, extract, reinterpret and use some structures of the qualities of La Pampa Argentina in new contexts by updating the original conditions.
In this particular case relate sowing and harvesting wheat, together with the characteristics of the River plain in a new physical, geographical and cultural situation.
We work a landscape which covers hundreds of acres to a much smaller territory scaling problems.
From the morphological qualities produced by local technology we propose a park that keeps present the memory of La Pampa and at the same time allows a new and interactive development with the visitors of the expo.
We use optical fiber to illuminate locally as lights moved with the wind as the plants.
Parts that perform topography edges will be concrete with coverage of copper in their outer edges.

Topography built with concrete with edges of copper
Optical fiber as glowworm moved with the win as the plans
