- # Construction
The Architecture of today, the new facades, the new materials, the new construction are no longer possible. There is no more place for architecture. The cities are all built. There are no more empty plots for new buildings. We can’t demolish to build new, we exhaust our natural resources. The Architecture as we know today is dead.
But city’s inhabitants increase every day. Space needs to be created. Space, the only matter for architecture. Space, the real task for architects.
Layer II: A new order will be added to the existing fabric. A new layer that will control the space. It is based on a mathematic formula, with two variables. X, the existing context. Y, the new space to be generated. The tension between the two elements makes it possible to exist. One is not possible without the other. This new reality has no facade, material or colour. Still, it defines volume and space. Space, the forgotten material from today’s architecture. Space the material of tomorrow.
