Las Cositas Tapas Bar This project is a study of design and place attachment. The Third Place is a space, besides home and work, where a person feels a sense of ownership. The overlapping rhythms and energetic pulse of Diablo Rojo, by Rodrigo y Gabriela drive the design of this Spanish fusion tapas bar. The song can be broken down into three guitar elements; a constant percussive beat on the body of the guitar, and two intertwining lines of guitar flirting and switching between melody and harmony. In the space, major architectural elements are inspired by the concept image’s use of intersecting diagonal lines. The lines of the parti (pictured above) become the bar and major walls of the restaurant.
