Think of a calm and colorful place, where there is no room for the greyness of our cities, for smog and rain, nor for injustice and inequality. Probably this place would look like Sonora Art Village imagined by the duo of architects and designers Davit and Mary Jilavyan.
About a year ago, Davit and Mary presented the project of Sonora House, a house in Mexico that stood between the desert and cacti and stood out for its unusual shape and pastel colors. During the lockdown, the two Russian architects imagined a place to escape, where to find or find peace and relaxation. Thus was born the project of the Sonora Art Village, an entire village that takes up the design and features of the Sonora House.
Small colorful houses connected by passageways, also colored, between which there are long, narrow swimming pools or basketball courts. The village of Davit and Mary Jilavyan is the place where we all want to be.
For their shapes and architectural features, the architects were inspired by great masters such as Ricardo Bofill and Luis Barragan, whose works are still a point of reference for architects and enthusiasts, and have treated every single element like a sculpture inserted in a 360° work of art.
Sonora Art Village is an explosion of our emotions, it’s what we lack in reality.
Unfortunately, Sonora Art Village is only a project, but nothing prevents us from hoping that sooner or later it will become a reality.
