We are happy to announce our participation in COEXISTENCES. TOMORROW AND TOMORROW with the article “About the logic of Elevated Streets now. Projected utopia and citizens realism”. The article tries to emphasize the need for a new search of spaces of opportunity in the critical present day; contrary to the idea of architecture as building objects, now what society needs is an architecture that builds processes in infrastructural simultaneity.
“While the built and the solid are now beyond control – subject to political, financial and cultural forces in a perpetual state of flux – the same is not true of the void, perhaps the last subject about which architectural certitudes are still convincing.”
