paradox of a twofold protection is omnipresent in Puerto
Rico. Maximum protection against the sun and a (supposed) criminal presence
results in a total enclosure of the interior from the outside world, and in
the end in a self-imposed imprisonment of the society as a whole.
This project is a quest for the reinvention of the freedom of the individual by means of the inherent qualities of the land. How can the structure of the protecting surfaces give birth to a true sense of security and freedom by using the never changing presence of the wind and the sun.
