Re-emerge Memory


How could we not fail to remember again?

Re-emerge Memory


How could we not fail to remember again?
What if our priority in any scale of composition would be the Memory?
File under

In a certain way, every square meter on the planet has a past condition, which appears in its form, sense of perception and/or interpretation. So, whichever the place, the scale and the identity of the design is, perhaps memory is the only factor which could be applied under different forms and conditions.

How memory could be the primary parameter of architecture and urban design composition? Which memory has to ‘‘remain’’ and why? How memory has been changed, destroyed, misunderstood in such cases? Which could be the results in the urban tissue and life?

Thinking of memory in architecture and urban design as a way to interpret the past, and in the same time urban situations, these projects are trying to investigate where, how and why memory could have a form in different space qualities.
