Digital Rocks

Design:
Summer 2019 Advanced Studio

Location:
Mission San Jose, San Antonio, TX

The Digital Rock Intervention at the Mission San Jose. The aim of the project was to provoke the way we deal with history, both architecturally and symbolically. While, on the one hand, the Mission is a beautiful symbol of Catholicism and the Latinx legacy in San Antonio, it also equally represents the subjugation or native peoples. Similarly, the rocks which form the intervention are ambivalent towards the existing convento, sometimes respectful, sometimes forceful, but never straightforward or easily summarized. ⠀
