Arts & Cars

Macarena Chaves Martinez joined the Architect-US Job+J1 Visa Program more recently and has been working towards getting an opportunity to work in the USA again. Last time she submitted to the Portfolio Challenge, she submitted StartMad, which won her an Amazon Gift CardShe worked on while in Madrid, which seeks to provide designs for a northern section of the city known for its financial district and tall towers. This area of Madrid has many start-up companies that require a different style of office space that promotes more interconnection and communication.

This time around she submitted a project called Arts & Cars, which aims to create a space for both in a clean and aesthetically pleasing form. Many times we think of car parks as ugly, large and imposing concrete structures that are in eye sore in the city. Macarena believes it is possible to incorporate the car park into an artistic space that adds to the urban renewal of a city, while also providing utility to commuters and those with cars.
