MARC FORNES / THEVERYMANY：Marquise是El Paso的Westside游泳馆的空间入口结构。视觉图标和建筑门槛，轻质铝结构改变了这座新公共建筑的体验。网格曲线板包括颜色鲜艳的顶篷以及其自支撑结构系统。深蓝色和暖黄色的双向Cheshire渐变以图形方式交替以强调清晰的表面。如帐篷或帆，超薄的表面从地面上升起，形成两个相邻的座位：混凝土元素继承了流动表面的复合曲率。
MARC FORNES / THEVERYMANY：Marquise is a spatial entry structure for El Paso’s Westside Natatorium. A visual icon and architectural threshold, the lightweight aluminum structure transforms the approach and experience of this new public building. Gridded curvilinear panels comprise the brightly-colored canopy and as well its self-supporting structural system. A two-way Cheshire gradient in deep blues and warm yellows alternate graphically to emphasize the sweeping surfaces. Seemingly inflated by the wind, as a tent or sail, the ultra-thin surface billows up from the ground, where it forms two contiguous seats: cast in place concrete elements that inherit the compound curvature of the faceted but flowing surface.
Marquise strikes its visitors differently: for small guests lining up for swimming lessons, the surface overhead appears to be some kind of circus tent, or a parachute frozen in midair. A bit of excitement before it’s time to suit up. Older patrons might find a welcome moment of pause at this shady entrance, before water aerobics or heading back into the heat of the parking lot.
Under dappled light, we’ve carved out a place that isn’t just for coming or going, but for lingering. At all hours, the space under and around Marquise welcomes moments that stretch into longer durations. When you’re waiting for your ride or meeting the swim team, outside the Natatorium is a place to chill out before dipping in. Before 6am laps to after dusk, Marquise alternately shades and radiates for pool-goers and all others.
Two-Faced: Stripes and Shingles
In a surface that is as thin as ⅛” in places, overlaps to produce a diamond-like pattern on top, and what appear to be continuous stripes below. At the edge of the surface, the curvilinear play between the two is revealed.
一组浓郁的黄色和深蓝色的渐变遵循双面曲面的A / B图案。两种互补的策略联合起来创造了第三个条件：一些更丰富的东西。在沙漠环境中消除温暖和凉爽之间的波动，色彩使周围景观的色调饱和。240个独特的部分被涂成六种蓝色，从明亮的正午天空到深邃清澈的黄昏。另外280个瓦片被涂成从金黄色到橙色的五种颜色。
Two-Way Gradient: Cheshire Coloration
Gradients in a set of rich yellows and deep blues follow the A/B patterning of dual-faced surface. Two complementary strategies unite to create a third condition–something richer. Playing off the fluctuations between warm and cool in the desert setting, the coloration saturates the palette of the surrounding landscape. 240 unique parts are painted in six shades of blues, from a bright midday sky to a deep, clear dusk. Another 280 shingles are painted in five shades of golden yellow to earthen orange.
