Urban legends

GayMenzel Studio addresses the complexity of the context as a source of development of a narrative linked to the site itself. This highlighting tool, we call contextual imaginary, reveals the inherent qualities of the place and integrates projections or personal aspirations into it, with the broad ambition of reconnection to the environment.

Urban legends short fictions that come close to myths, urban tales, contemporary legends. Which spread in popular culture by oral transmission and proliferate through social networks.

These stories which circulate and that everybody knows. Your uncle told you about that alligator living in the sewers of New York, your father’s girlfriend confirmed it. These legends are mysterious, terrifying or funny. They are adapted to the local folklore by word of mouth, through hearsay. Each city produces these murmurs. Like an echo.
