Hormigón textil: arrugas en el Crushed Wall.

El artista Walter Jack ha imaginado este muro de contención de tierras, situado en “Heartlands”, una promoción inmobiliaria destinada a promover la transformación del suelo de las minas de estaño en una nueva área urbana, en Cornwall Council, Reino Unido.

Ha conseguido, con este material frío y duro, una plasticidad y voluptuosidad propia de un telón caído.

El muro de hormigón tiene una longitud de 40m y una altura variable entre 4.00 a 1.50 metros. Se ha construido en taller utilizando un encofrado perdido y continuo, compuesto por una lámina de caucho arrugada, clavada sobre tablero de madera y estabilizada con espuma de poliuretano.

Crushed Wall is about two things.  Firstly, it’s about place as Heartlands sits over very special and unique geology. When we began thinking of the design for the wall, the geological connection seemed serendipitous. Retaining walls hold back the geology and are the boundary between our above-ground world and the world of mining.

Secondly it’s about process. One of the things that interests me as a maker is the way in which the finished product is often much duller than the process that got it there. Concrete is not noted for its fluid softness, and yet it is a liquid. We wanted our concrete to tell its own story – to retain the liquidness of its process.
