Since winning the Portfolio Challenge last year, Guille Del Rio is back for another submission to the Portfolio Challenge, and is aimed at designing an adaptable and easily usable recycling area. Find out how and why he decided to design this recycling area.

Guillermo del Rio joined our Architect-USJob+J1 Visa Program a couple of years ago, and was able to get work in the USA at Corgan. This time he has submitted a new project called Hornsteinar to the Portfolio Challenge, after last time submitting a project called Between Sea and Cliffs. He started working on this project during his time at the Polytechnic University of Madrid (ETSAM) and he was interested in trying to create a positive environment for the creative arts.

After finishing his Masters in 2018 he traveled from Madrid to Iceland to California, all in a matter of a couple of years! Now he his is working at McGinnis Chen Associates in San Francisco after being let go from Corgan  in Los Angeles due to the economic downturn caused by the pandemic.

Hornsteinar focuses on the design of recycling areas for outdoor areas that promote the recycling of a variety of different materials, while making it simple to use. As you can see below, Guille provides us with an outline in terms of how each section works and why he chose to place each container in each spot.
