Dualistic House

ERYX, Italy
1 May 2003




The reinforced concrete frame of an existing house looks here like an abstract geography, an irrational place on and with which to rewrite space. Here we experiment with a dual and contradictory situation, bringing together primary volumes with fluid objects, in order to construct an organism from the juxtaposition of different but continuous and interconnected spatial places, as in a narration.
