The Archipelago tries to trace a model for the Contemporary Metropolis.
Scenes are identified. Each piece, each scene, each island, behaves as a laboratory. A “laboratorization” of the city as an archipelago is established.
Four concrete cases are presented, from the compendium of islands that configure the project for the city. Four documents. One for each island: plan, section, elevation and image. Four situations itemized, which will not just explain metropolitan islands separately, but would trace a unitary project that constitutes the narrative of the city of Madrid as an archipelago.
Redefining our position from the trace of objects to the trace of associations. Redefining our role as a type of connection amid things that are not architectonic by themselves.
Instead of analyzing the post-post condition of the contemporary city as a state of crisis, we ought to treat radically immanent conditions of the city as a projective model for the metropolis itself.
