anormal structures in a special town 

The purpose of this brief is to present the two lifestyles developed throughout the project. One being a nomadic lifestyle: dynamic, constantly changing, and based on humans’ primary instinct of survival in hostile and/or unknown territories. The second is the opposite, the daily routine of a typical Texan guy: simple, monotonous, and repetitive.

These two contrasting ways of living, represented in this brief through the stories of two characters. Travis, inspired by the character Travis in the movie Pairs Texas, an unstoppable nomad who walks kilometres and kilometres across deserted lands in search of food and water, and Charlie, an ordinary person in his thirties who works in a depot which recently opened just outside Marfa.

Throughout the narrative, the three main spaces with which the characters interact (the depot, the bar, and the capsule) have been designed to create a specific dialogue between the individual structures and the surrounding environment, making them blend in but, at the same time, keeping a feeling of alien and out-of-place in the overall scene.
