Enrique de Pablo Nuevo, one of our highly talented architects in the Architect-US Job+J1 Visa Program, has presented his project called Madrid Art Lab for the Portfolio Challenge. Nuevo went to Universidad CEU San Pablo and submitted this work to get a 8/10 on his final project. Nuevo states that Pablo Picasso claimed… “Every child is born an artist The problem is how to remain an artist while growing up…”. To what I ask myself: how do we remain artists as we grow up?
The answer I would give the master would be the MADRID ART LAB: a training and fabrication art center for children where boys and girls can develop their creativity in a family environment. Guided by their childish intuition, kids, along with teachers, parents and grandparents collaborate together to design and construct different prototypes of ARTEFACTS.

These ARTEFACTS are objects of architectonic-scuptural nature, half toy-half furniture, that can become street furniture, plant stands, pergolas, swings, urban sports facilities… They are built in an assembly line, as an industrial product; however, each one will be singular and unique, like a work of art. As different prototypes are produced, these are distributed across the multitude of parks around the urban context.
Nuevo used AutoCad, SketchUp, Photoshop, and Illustrator to create this beautiful work.
