Jesus Meseguer is a young Spanish architect. As part of his professional experience, he has worked with studios, such as Ishigami and Kengo Kuma Lab. His main research theme has been New Environments, looking at it from perspectives such as thermodynamics, landscape interventions, research of materials and spatial configuration. Lately he has been involved with projects at the confluence of Architecture and Art, due to the exploration and speculative possibilities of these combined disciplines.

The Waste Archive


A new experience of residue
Installations that reuse "waste" to reactivate abandoned urban frameworks through new ambiences

Type of project
  • New areas of operation

Waste lost its place in the world when it became abandoned. It needs to be displaced to recover the identity it once lost, to reactivate, transform, extinguish. In the city of Cadiz (Spain), we discover how its buildings turned into rubble. Abandoned landscapes disappear from the local collective memory. Throughout these territories, waste is disseminated, remaining isolated, condemned to oblivion. The intention of the project is to detect these wastelands in order to reinterpret them, redefining their lost identity. As support for this new typology, we selected the Island of San Sebastian, because it acts as a miniature version of the city, reproducing its state of ruin. The architectural interventions will act upon the pre-existing pathologies of their support, transforming space into experience. These procedural pieces respond to their context by building a project between an Earthwork and a Museum of Natural Sciences. The island of San Sebastian thus becomes a Waste Archive.



The Waste Archive

Gateway - Industrial Infrastructures and Tiled roofs

Patina - Shipyard Mould

Nets - Traditional fishing art

Vessels | Corrosion - Complete the ruin
