[X]rite; 4 architects rise up against standars in architecture education and learning systems. A collective crystallized while living together during the European Architecture Students Assemby '17 in Denmark. Looking for new concepts and meanings on already existing spaces. Our interest is based on performances that are able to mutate the environment through its space and use.

Challenging human rites throughout the concept of "party" modyfing space-time.

Type of project
  • New areas of operation

Unspeakable due to its changing nature, fed by the moment.

Starting from the meaning of the concept “party” to apply it and test it throughout a variety of interventions and performances that will modify its space-time along what we will be calling rites and putting it/us to the test.

Where are the boundaries and perversions? Where and when? Mystery runs the world, and we are going to take its advantage.

In the way somebody asks for a cigarette at a club, the only material disposal would be provided `in situ`, either by people from Rijeka, the workshops surrounding the city or the community of EASA, but, would that material be necessary for magic to happens?

Every single movement will have been registered by the end of the workshop but its result depends on ´the X participants´ permitting it to end up as mapping result, a video, a performance or even mobile devices of the affective imagination established under the X influence.



How to pick the participants? Empty stand transmiting in streaming from our location inside the accommodation, where we slept. 9am.
Just the ones who were brave enough for coming were the ones who wanted to become part of [X].rite. Behaviour transformation of a place using the non-physical.

Have you ever been showered by another person while not being a child? Can we change the temperature of the -very cold- water we had without transforming the water? Does the interaction between unknown bodies affect the future relation of them? Those questions were answered there. Take your own conclussions.

Have you ever attended to an outdoor screening? Have you ever seen classic cinema on the beach? A dogbeach was transformed by night into a social club, just using recycling elements and atmospheres devices.

Spontaneous, wild, like sparks... Machineo is based on the late 80's spanish underground culture of techno rave. Zero elements but a car were needed to make people get together, fantasy with no-limits for devices before aesthetics.

A tunnel meant to not hold any event but to cross it fastly, could it be changed to a place where the entrance has become an important path to experiment the space? Music is being played and bodies vividly fullfil it. Should you have to assume what your preconception of something is?
